Fiscal Decentralization in the EEC Countries

Abstract

This paper explores the major economic, geographic, and political factors that explain the variations of fiscal decentralization through time-series regression analyses for the EEC countries. The empirical results support much of the theoretical work. It was found that per capita income and population size adequately explain the variations in the fiscal decentralization in the majority of the EEC countries. On the contrary, density of population is less important in accounting for these variations. Regarding the two new factors introduced in this paper, it was found that the time-trend variable is significant, whereas the political factor is not significant.
