Este trabajo explica, desde un punto de vista empírico, parte del problema de convergencia de las provincias argentinas, complementando el método tradicional de beta y sigma convergencia (considerando distintas variables de análisis) con los métodos recientes de estudio de la dinámica de las distribuciones. En la investigación se observa que la forma de la distribución persiste durante el período 1970-1982. Por otra parte, lo que en el período 1983-1995, se detecta como beta-convergencia, puede ser interpretado como un proceso de estratificación hacia clases diferenciadas de provincias con diferentes niveles de riqueza. This paper describes, from an empirical point of view, the subject of convergence in Argentina. For this, we use the traditional methods of Beta and Sigma convergence (considering different variables), as well as recent methods of Convergence as Distribution Dynamics. In this study we show that the shape of the distribution persists during the period 1970-1982. Furthermore, in 1983-1995 beta convergence is detected, although it could be interpreted as a process of stratification towards provinces with different wealth level.
