On modelling convergence clubs
AbstractA switching regression approach with imperfect sample separation information is used to determine convergence clubs. Regime classification allows one to determine which countries belong to the related convergence clubs. Initial per capita GDP does not provide a perfect sample separation information, but the regimes classification obtained from an endogenous switching model provides unusual results.
