The unequal spaces beyond the official limits: the intra-urban dynamic of São Vicente Island in 1990s

Alberto A.E. Jakob, Universidade Estadual de Campinas

This paper has two main goals. The first one is to show the main possibilities and limitations of the Brazilian Demographic Census for those who work with intra-urban analysis, dealing specially with information access at local, or intra-municipality level, and to promote a method of data analysis that minimizes these limitations. For this, a study case with the São Vicente Island, located on the coast of São Paulo, Brazil, was realized, using a procedure of data interpolation, known as kriging. Then, the second goal arises: to analyze the intra-urban dynamic of this island in the 1990s, a possible application for these procedures. This paper brings maps that show a visible segregation of households that overflows the official limits of the two municipalities studied.
