Barriers to the Spatial Diffusion for the Demographic Transition in Western Europe

  title={Barriers to the Spatial Diffusion for the Demographic Transition in Western Europe},

The zones exhibiting a major discontinuity, an abrupt change of the values taken by spatialized variable(s) generally delineate patterns and probably correspond to the zones of sharp changes for the causal variable(s) underlying the observed surface relief, or to barriers in dynamic processes. An example of this can be two contiguous areas of mortality generated by ecological and/or socio-economic factors. A rapid change of the factors on the map corresponds to a sharp change of the mortality… CONTINUE READING
