The aim of this work is to propose a statistical methodology in order to estimate the macromagnitud Gross Value Added per capita (GVApc) in the local geographical area. The procedure proposed consists of estimating a panel model which includes Griffith’s spatial filtering (1996, 2000) to capture the spatial dependence in the whole analyzed period. The relationship between the GVApc of each province and a set indicators generates the coefficients that will be applied to the values of the municipal indicators, which allows foretell efficient estimates of the GVApc of the municipalities of the Region of Murcia.
