The article explores the spatial association between the Human Development Index, the Gini coefficient and the level of urbanization in Mexico. We determine the association between the three indexes with a non-parametric measure (λ) as well as with a geographically weighted regression model. We find a negative association between urbanization and inequality, but mostly, our analysis suggests a strong importance of space (the regional distribution of the urban condition) in the local measures of inequality.
