Evaluation of regional debt ratings through discriminant analysis
Transparency is a necessary condition in order to financial market could exert an adequate discipline over public agents’ borrowing policy. In federal and decentralized countries, the risk of insolvency is bigger, given that expenditure and revenue policies are shared among several tiers of government.

Discriminant analysis is used and the Autonomous Communities in Spain are the core of the investigation.
