Abstract

For the study of the industrial concentration have used diverse quantitative technicians. However, they do not exist works analysing the geographic concentration of the diverse types of establishments of rural tourism and his temporary evolution. The aim of this work, therefore, is to analyse the space concentration of the different typologies of these accommodations in Catalonia, to municipal level, local and of tourist mark; and his evolution during the years 2000, 2006 and 2012. For this, from the official statistical data, we are calculated the indexes of Gini, Ellison-Glaeser and Relative Concentration. The results obtained show a territorial concentration very slight in all these years, although increasing the offer of these accommodations in a greater number of municipalities inside a same region. Besides, it perceives the presence of small territorial agglomerations in the case of the houses of village shared.
