This chapter describes some stylized facts on economic geography and its evolution in France over the past twenty years. The analysis of the Gini and Ellison and Glaeser indices shows that sectors are highly heterogeneous. Some sectors tend to concentrate and others tend to disperse. Moreover, geographical concentration or dispersion can be associated with very different patterns in terms of performance.
