This study intends to analyze the relationship between fiscal decentralization and economic growth in Iran, over the period of 2001-2007 across the 30 provinces of the country. A nonlinear fixed effect panel model is specified. The results show that fiscal decentralization has a positive effect on economic growth of Iran.
