This section answers how can regions be grouped according to their relatedness. By means of a cluster analysis, different regional typologies are identified able to group regions with similar levels of centrality and connectivity according to 5 groups. These typologies are obtained from the results of the key indicators above, based on both the destination region (inflows) and the origin region (outflows).
Regarding the incoming intra-ESPON remittances flows cluster A (incoming remittances ESPON-wide hubs) contains the topmost absolute and net remittances receivers, cluster B (incoming remittances national-wide hubs) contains the topmost influencing, dependent, and national remittances receivers, cluster C (incoming remittances ESPON-wide relative hubs) contains the topmost relative remittances receivers, and the bottommost dependent remittances receivers, cluster D (second-level incoming remittances ESPON-wide hubs) contains the second-level linked and dependent remittances receivers, and cluster E (second-level incoming remittances independents) contains the bottommost linked, influencing absolute, relative, national, and net remittances receivers.
