European regions differ considerably in their population age structure. This implies the questions, whether a specific age structure is favorable for regional per capita output growth and whether differences in the age structure induce differences in per capita output growth between regions. To explore this questions we carried out a spatial econometrics cross-section analysis of the NUTS2 regions of the EU15. We found evidence that there is such a link and that spatial autocorrelation matters, even after controlling for country specific effects. The most significant growth effect is generated by the cohort of age 30–44. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2006
