This publication characterizes the Portuguese municipalities from a purchasing power perspective, based on a set of indicators obtained from a factor analysis model. This study presents three indicators: Per Capita purchasing power Indicator, the Proportion of Purchasing Power, based on the Per Capita Indicator, and the Dynamism Relative Factor. The advantage of these indicators is that they constitute information at the municipality level, for which this type of statistical data is scarce.
The publication includes an application (see appEPCC2017) that provides the user with the possibility of calculating the value for any of the three indicators according to other territorial classifications and specific groups of municipalities defined by the user.
