ABSTRACT
The paper proposes a solution, designed to identify and to ana-lyse the spatial concentration of economic activities. Statistical methods of data analysis adapted by us are used to provide relevant results for analysis of eco-nomic and spatial data, and to support the research conclusions. The analysis of spatial concentration of economic activities is done at the national and regional levels and is based on two types of data: spatial and economics. A model of analy-sis, based on Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis methods has been proposed in the paper. A software component has been designed and im-plemented in order to manage the economic and spatial data, and to develop the data analysis. A case study for energy industry of Romania has been proposed In order to apply the proposed analysis. This kind of analysis is useful for policy mak-ers, entrepreneurs and economic analysts to investigate and evaluate the spatial distribution of economic activities, in order to support their decisions.
