''The Geographic Concentration of Population and Income in Europe: Results for the Period 1984-1999''
( 2007, Vol. 18 No.7 )
In this paper we use the Gini index to analyze the spatial concentration of income and population across European Union regions over the period 1984-1999. The results of our analysis show an slow but increasing pattern of geographic concentration of population and income. The critical threshold where the effects of the geographic concentration become remarkable is when we reach the 45-50% band of the richest population.
Keywords: EU regions
