We analyze the distribution of economic activity across space for different types of activity and different levels of aggregation. Not only is this distribution highly uneven (independently of the type of activity and level of aggregation), it is also remarkably regular regarding its size distribution (rank-size rule or Zipf’s Law) and regarding its interaction (gravity equation).
