RESUMEN Este trabajo estudia los factores que explican los determinantes de la inversión pública regional a escala provincial. En particular, se analizan los criterios que han podido guiar las decisiones de inversión pública (en carreteras e hidráulicas) realizadas por la Administración Autonómica en las provincias andaluzas en el periodo 1985-2000. Nuestros principales resultados indican que mientras no parece existir una sólida relación entre indicadores de gastos e inversión pública, sí se encuentra una orientación redistributiva frente a criterios de eficiencia. Además, se detecta complementariedad entre la inversión autonómica y la realizada por el Estado, matizada los años en que ambas instituciones estaban gobernadas por partidos políticos distintos. ABSTRACT This paper studies the factors driving the regional public investment at province level. Particularly, we analyse which criteria are behind the territorial allocation of public spending in roads and hydraulic infrastructures in Andalucia (Spain) over the period 1985-2000. Our main results show that there are no robust indications that public investment has followed a criterion based on expenditures needs. Conversely, it seems to be clear that redistributive considerations have played a significant role, as opposite to efficiency criteria. Moreover, a complementary relationship between regional and central public investment is detected, but it has to be qualified when different political parties are in power at both levels of government.
