Heterogeneous Convergence

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

Working Paper series from Rimini Centre for Economic Analysis

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