This research is an exploratory spatial data analysis (ESDA) of femicides in Mexico at the municipal level. This is carried through the application of spatial and spatiotemporal analysis techniques for three different years: 1990, 2000 and 2010. It has the purpose of identify the changes that occur on the femicides patterns. The results suggest that femicides are not randomly distributed but tend to concentrate in certain urban and rural areas. The results also indicate a spatial diffusion towards northern municipalities in 2010; while for 1990 and 2000 a higher incidence was found in southern municipalities.
