    This paper measures the effect of the labor factor mobility on the convergence rate to the steady state of the economy. It is estimated that this rate is relatively low for the Mexican Federate States, compared with other countries like the United States and Japan. However, the rates between the Mexican Federate States and the US are very similar during the 80’s. According to our estimations, the mobility of the labor factor, “pure” or adjusted by human capital, between the Mexican Federate States does not seem to have a significative effect on the convergence rate to the long run per capita real product; which means that the mobility of the labor force does not seem to smooth considerably the differences in per capita real product between the States. Our results have several implications for Regional Policy making.
