CHATTERJI M. and DEWHURST J. H. LL. (1996) Convergence clubs and relative economic performance in Great Britain: 1977-1991, Reg. Studies 30, 31-40. Movements in the gross domestic product (GDP) per capita of English and Welsh counties and Scottish regions are examined to test whether the counties and regions are converging in terms of GDP per capita. The exercise is carried out for the period 1977 to 1991 and for six sub-periods. Although there is no evidence of convergence over the whole period there is some evidence of convergence within certain sub-periods. These are periods when the economy as a whole is growing slowly. CHATTERJI M. et DEWHURST J. H. LL. (1996) La convergence et la performance economique relative en Grande-Bretagne de 1977 a 1991, Reg. Studies 30, 31-40. La variation du Produit Interieur Brut par tete dans les comtes de l'Angleterre et du pays de Galles ainsi que dans les regions de l'Ecosse se voient examiner afin de tester si, oui ou non, les comtes et les regions convergent en termes du PIB par tete. L'etude porte sur la periode de 1977 a 1991 et sur six sous-periodes. Bien qu'il n'y ait pas de preuves a l'appui de la convergence sur toute la periode, neanmoins il y a quelques preuves de la convergence au cours de certaines sous-periodes. Ce sont des periodes ou la croissance globale de l'economie s'avere lente. CHATTERJI M. und DEWHURST J. H. LL. (1996) Konver-genzklubs und relative Wirtschaftsleistung in Grossritannien im Zeitraum 1977-1991, Reg. Studies 30, 31-40. Anstiege und Ruchgange im Bruttosozialprodukt pro Kopf in den englischen und welschen Grafschaften und den schottischen Regionen werden untersucht, um zu prufen, ob in Bezug auf das Bruttosozialprodukt in den Grafschaften und Regionen eine Konvergenz besteht. Die Uberprufung wird sowohl fur den Zeitraum 1977-1991 als auch fur sechs Teilperioden durchgefuhrt. Obwohl sich keine Beweise fur eine Konvergenz fur die Gesamtzeit aufstellen lassen, gibt es doch Belege dafur in bestimmten Zeitabschnitten. Es handelt sich um Zeiten, in denen die Wirtschaft insgesamt langsam wachst.
