Abstract in Portuguese
O objetivo desse trabalho é analisar a distribuição espacial do capital humano nos municípios Estado de São Paulo. Para tanto, será usada uma metodologia de investigação composta de regressões que buscam explicar a variação do capital humano municipal com base em seu estoque inicial e em outras variáveis de controle. Os resultados mostram que as pessoas com ensino superior possuem uma tendência apenas moderada de divergência espacial, que se desfaz gradativamente à medida que adicionamos novas variáveis de controle. Por outro lado, as pessoas com ensino básico ou analfabetas apresentam evidências muito mais concretas de convergência espacial. Esse resultado vai contra a literatura internacional da área que sugere existência de concentração espacial nas pessoas com alto capital humano.

Abstract in English
This paper investigates the spatial distribution of the human capital in the municipalities of the Brazilian state São Paulo. For that purpose, a methodology consisted by linear regressions that aims to explain the human capital variations using control variables and the initial stock of human capital will be used. The result shows that people with college degrees have a moderate trend of spatial divergence, which is gradually undone once we put new control variables in the regression. On the other side, people with basic education or no education at all present a more robust trend of spatial convergence. This result is not supported by the international evidence of the area, which shows the existence of a strong spatial divergence trend in the people with high human capital.
