Empirical Evidence of Population Concentration in Spain, 1900-2001

Publication Date Jan 1, 2008


This paper examines the evolution of the population density in Spain over the twentieth century.

Focusing on population density, we present empirical evidence supporting the hypothesis that, over time, Spain's population has undergone progressive concentration, and that this process is still under way. Its main contribution is to offer quantitative support for phenomena which have already been well documented by specialists in more general terms.

Les resultats corroborent l'hypothese d'une concentration progressive de la population de l'Espagne au fil du temps, processus qui se poursuit encore aujourd'hui. L'apport essentiel de l'article est qu'il confirme par une analyse quantitative des phenomenes que les specialistes ont deja bien decrits en des termes plus generaux.
