NUNES, Alcina  e  BARROS, Elisa. Territorial characterization of the registered unemployment in Portugal: a cluster analysis application. Economia Global e Gestão [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.3, pp.9-26. ISSN 0873-7444.

The regional distribution of the unemployed individual characteristics is of core importance for the development of public policies that can fight the unemployment phenomenon, especially in times of crises. In this research work, the data mining cluster methodology allows finding groups of regional areas - considering for that the NUTII administrative regions - that share the same characteristics for the register unemployed and, therefore, helps in a better understanding of the problem and possible solutions. Results for the Portuguese regions show a clear division of the territory among four regions - north and south and urban and rural areas of the country. The final results also show that the economic crisis imply changes in the geographical profile distribution of the registered unemployed.
