Author Info

Abstract

Convencionalmente las evaluaciones sobre el bienestar en las regiones utilizan como indicador de nivel de vida el PIB por habitante. Este trabajo trata de aportar una perspectiva distinta acerca del bienestar regional mediante la utilización de indicadores alternativos. Con este propósito se ha construido una base de datos para las Comunidades Autónomas españolas y el periodo 1980-2001 con la que se ha estimado una versión ampliada del Índice de Desarrollo Humano (IDHA) elaborado por el PNUD que incorpora indicadores de salud, de educación y de renta por habitante. Los resultados muestran que, mientras las disparidades regionales en VAB por habitante en España permanecían prácticamente estancadas, se han producido en las dos últimas décadas avances notables en la convergencia en el IDHA de las regiones españolas.
