Heterogeneous convergence

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

Economics Letters, 2013, vol. 120, issue 2, 238-241

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