Abstract: In this paper we study the location of immigrants in France in 1990, using data at the finest geographic level available, the municipalities. Our analysis combines cartography, exploratory spatial data analysis and the estimation of counting models. We find that, if immigrants are highly concentrated, this concentration is far from being uniform : immigrants tend to aggregate in a small number of municipalities, mainly in urban areas, and over representation in a region is not the outcome of a higher rate of immigrants everywhere in the region. There are more municipalities with a high rate of immigrants, still surrounded by municipalities with few immigrants. We also show that urbanization is an important factor of attraction and that newcomers are attracted by the locations where former migrants are concentrated. However, the geographical effects are important and there is still room for exploring other location factors.
