ABSTRACT This article presents the final results of the exploratory spatial data analysis carried out on the variables that measure the amount of public funds allocated by the public administration to the common agricultural policy (cap) in a european nuts ii region (asturias). These variables can be and have been used in econometric models to measure their impact or contribution to the objectives pursued by the cap. The territorial nature of these funds makes it necessary to contrast the possible existence of spatial autocorrelation and / or spatial heterogeneity, which, if confirmed, would make it necessary to propose spatial econometric models that collect them. The exploratory spatial data analysis (esda) is proposed as a previous step to a subsequent confirmatory analysis of estimation of the models.
