Impact of Subsidies Across Alabama Counties: An Econometric Interpretation


  • Yeboah, Osei-Agyeman
  • Thompson, Henry


Fixed effect time series effect models are used to analyze the spatial and time series pattern of the effects of subsidies on manufacturing income across twenty counties in Alabama from 1970 to 1999. The results from the fixed effect model indicate that median populated counties performed better than larger and smaller counties while the time series effect model indicates that the impact of subsidies is marginal across the state over time.
