Analysis of the Mato Grosso do Sul tourist employment with the use of local measures - 2006 to 2013

Abstract: the objective of the research is to analyze the specialization and concentration of tourist employment in Mato Grosso do Sul. The methodological procedures were the Locational Quotient, Redistribution Coefficient, Location Coefficient and the Relative Participation of this employment in relation to the national employment. The results indicate specialization of the state’s tourism employment, in municipalities like Corumbá, however, there are no concentration patterns. The redistribution coefficient showed that there were no changes in the pattern of location during the period, and the relative share of employment is not constant.
