Design of Homogeneous Territorial Units: A Methodological Proposal


  • Working Papers in Economics


  • One of the main questions to solve when analyzing geographically added information consists of the design of territorial units adjusted to the objectives of the study. This is related with the reduction of the effects of the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem (MAUP). In this paper an optimization model to solve regionalization problems is proposed. This model seeks to reduce some disadvantages found in previous works about automated regionalization tools.
