Measuring the Institutional Factors in the Economic Growth of the Mexican Regions 1970 - 2000
AbstractThis paper examines the role of institutional factors in the economic growth of Mexican regions. Assuming an institutional dimension of growth, we will assess the relationships between informal and formal institutional features, infrastructure conditions and growth. Following the approach of the document presented at the ERSA Conference (2003), we introduce the results obtained in the process of measuring the institutional factors for three different periods 1970-1985, 1985-1994 and 1994-2000. Cluster Analysis techniques were applied to a database of 13-14 variables; from we identified patterns of institutional characteristics for the Mexican regions and groups of states that share some features. The results are confronted with the evidence of growth for these periods, in order to identify if a particular regional institutional structure has led to higher or lower rates of growth. Keywords: Institutions, Regional Growth, Mexico, Cluster Analysis.
