    En este artículo se ofrece una metodología dirigida a cuantificar el grado de solidaridad interterritorial a través de los recursos con los que cuentan las Comunidades Autónomas (CCAA) procedentes, en su mayor parte, del sistema de financiación autonómica. Esta metodología se fundamenta en la redistribución de los recursos tributarios analizada mediante la estimación de las aportaciones realizadas por los residentes en las CCAA para la financiación del gobierno central y una medida de la riqueza de esos residentes. Para la estimación se utiliza la técnica econométrica de panel de datos. A la luz de los resultados obtenidos en el análisis, se puede concluir que, las Comunidades Autónomas reciben recursos en función de sus necesidades de gasto, sin importar la renta relativa de sus habitantes, y que el sistema es solidario. This article offers a methodology to cuantify the degree of solidarity between territories through the Autonomous Communities resources, being most of them obtained from the regional financing system. This methodology is based on the redistribution of tax revenues analyzed by estimating the contributions made by residents in the CCAA to central government funding and a measure of the wealth of those residents. To estimate the econometric technique we used panel data. In the light of the results of the analysis, we can conclude that the Autonomous Communities receive resources according to their spending needs, regardless of the relative income of its residents and that the system is solidary.
