Abstract: The economy of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais has undergone several changes between the 1950’s and the 1990’s. The main result of those changes was the great heterogeneity amongst its microrregions (dynamic and stagnant areas exist simultaneous). The aim of the paper is to identify the areas that currently play a central role in the development of the state, the dynamic of the local employment, and level of intra-state heterogeneity. Descriptive and multivariate methods are used to analyze data on employment and pn local diversity in the period 1995/2008 (data from RAIS/MTE and IBGE). The results show that the most dynamic areas in terms of employment are also those with the highest degrees of centrality. Despite the improvements in recent years, the intra-state heterogeneity remains high.
