For this purpose, the state is disaggregated into municipalities, and as testing methodologies are used density distribution and a first order Markov process in its discrete and continuous versions. The results show that the distributions of productivity of municipalities have suffered mass displacement to the left, indicating a worsening in it and its dynamics of development showed a process of convergence towards the lower classes of productivity.
