Heterogeneous Convergence

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

EconStor Open Access Articles and Book Chapters, 2013, 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.
