Abstract

This paper presents the first results of a broader research carried out by the Instituto Valenciano deInvestigaciones Económicas (IVIE) on public capital and regional development in Spain. An estimation ofpublic capital endowments, for the years 1980, 1985 and 1990, is obtained, for the first time, using similarineliods to the ones utilized in other countries. It is dissaggregated for each Spanish region into the followingfunctions: roads, urban and hydraulic infrastructures, education and health.Tlie paper pays considerable attention to rnethodology, pointing out the complexity of the statisticalproblems aild tlie criteria used to solve them. Section 2 defines, specifically the stock of capital, what ismeant by public and in which functional form it can be classified. Tlie perpetua1 inventory method, thechoseii survival and depreciation functions, as well as the deflators and average lives used for the differentinfrastructures are described in section 3. Section 4 considers the many problems posed by the informationsources as for their availability, lioinogeneity and systeinatics. In section 5 the results and tlie Spanish publiccapital stock estimates are showii, as well as its functional and territorial disaggregation. Finally, section6 offers some brief conclusions. Este trabajo presenta los primeros resultados de una investigación más amplia llevada a cabo por el Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Económicas (IVIE) sobre capital público y desarrollo regional eN Espaila. La aportación fundamental de la misma es una estimación de las dotaciones de capital de las Admiilistraciones Públicas en los años 1980, 1985 y 1990, obtenida por primera vez mediante una metodología homologable con la empleada en otros países desarrollados. Se estima también una desagregación funcional de capital público en carreteras, estructuras urbanas, infraestructuras hidráulicas, educativas y sanitarias para cada una de las Comunidades Autónomas.El trabajo presta considerable atención a los aspectos metodológicos, destacando la complejidad de los problemas estadísticos abordados y los criterios seguidos en su resolución. El apartado 2 está dedicado a la delimitación de las variables a estimar, tanto desde el punto de vista conceptual (el stock de capital) como institucional (las Administraciones Públicas) y funcional. El apartado 3 se ocupa de describirel método del iiiventario permanente, así como las funciones de supervivencia y depreciación seleccionadas, los deflactores elaborados y las vidas inedias utilizadas en los diferentes tipos de infraestructuras. El punto 4 considera los numerosos problemas planteados por las fuentes de información, tanto por la disponibilidad o no de las mismas como por su homogeneidad y sistemática. El apartado 5 está dedicado a la presentación de resultados y ofrece las estimaciones del stock de capital de las Administraciones Públicas en España así como su desagregación funciona1 y territorial. El punto 6 ofrece unas sucintas conclusiones generales derivadas de la información presentada. A partir de la misma, y de modo todavía muy provisional, es posibleapuntar dos respuestas en las dos dimensiones del debate.
