Abstract : This paper aims at finding global rules about periurban spatial organization in France according to three main indexes: intensity of periurbanisation, range of periurban commutes and concentration of periurban flows. Comparing all French agglomerations with more than 5.000 jobs, we have highlighted links between the population of these agglomerations and our three indexes. That is why this research proposes statistical models to determinate periurban spatial organization according to agglomeration size. Moreover, observing the spatial repartition of residuals, we have highlighted some local characteristics in this organization. Using geographical information systems, we have tried, in this paper, to explain these local characteristics by geographic facts and historic resilience.
