Abstract

In Mexico, gender violence is considered to be a public health and insecurity problem. National statistics indicate that 47% of women over 15 reported to have had at least one incident of violence. To do the study in the municipality of Toluca, which houses the capital of Mexico’s most populous state, it was chosen a method based on mapping from official records of violence against women in 2009, correlating them against the demographic variables disaggregated by Municipal Delegations. The result of the study is a compendium of maps of Toluca which contains gender violence facts and rates, which sets the basis for developing new integrated models to do a spatial analysis, contributing to provide a timely response to victims and allowing the targeting of information and awareness campaigns. Key Words: Gender Violence, Spatial Analysis, Toluca, Mexico.
