An empirical note on growth and convergence across Russian regions

Laura Solanko

No 9/2003, BOFIT Discussion Papers from Bank of Finland, Institute for Economies in Transition

Abstract: This empirical note uses publicly available Goskomstat data to investigate income growth and convergence across Russian regions. Using data for 1992-2001, we find strong sigma divergence simultaneously with beta convergence. he results indicate that per capita income in Russian regions may be converging towards two separate steady states.The poorest regions seem to be converging among themselves, while growth experiences among other regions have been highly heterogeneous. Keywords: convergence, divergence, Russia, regions, growth.
