Abstract

Generalmente, el análisis de la convergencia entre países o regiones se suele llevar a cabo comparando el valor medio de las distribuciones de determinadas variables, como el PIB o la renta disponible expresadas en términos per capita. Sin embargo, este tipo de estudios, directamente relacionado con el nivel de bienestar en una sociedad, ofrece una visión parcial del fenómeno de la convergencia, puesto que no tiene en cuenta las disparidades dentro de las regiones o países. La metodología empleada en este artículo permite complementar el enfoque tradicional, considerando simultáneamente aspectos relacionados con criterios tanto de eficiencia como de equidad en cada región. En concreto, se contrasta la dominancia estocástica de primer y segundo orden para analizar la convergencia de las Comunidades Autónomas con datos procedentes de la Encuesta de Presupuestos Familiares de 1990-91 y de la Encuesta de Condiciones de Vida de 2004.
