Just some data to try to answer, in Madrid, to the questions raised in the precedent post, based in data from the Statistical Institute of Madrid about:

  • Population (2011 municipal population registry, also known as padrón, by census block data). The census block data geographical subdivision from the same source has also been used.
  • Economic activity points in 2010, and employment in them, by census block
  • GDP, in 2009, by census block.

Data has been analyzed using an open source GIS with functions that allow a vision better adapted to the blog format.
