Heterogeneous Convergence

Andrew Young (), Matthew Higgins () and Daniel Levy ()

No 2013-04, Working Papers from Bar-Ilan University, Department of Economics

Abstract: We use U.S. county-level data to estimate convergence rates for 22 individual states. We find significant heterogeneity. E.g., the California estimate is 19.9 percent and the New York estimate is 3.3 percent. Convergence rates are essentially uncorrelated with income levels.
