To determine rates of change in regional inequalities. Is it increasing or decreasing? And to determine of cities that are the inequalities between them and Baghdad more than others. There is more than one method to calculate the regional inequality, but the more popular; Williamson method, namely weighted coefficient of variation (Vw), but the key indicators were Indicators spatial, indicators of industrial activity in study areas only.
