Exploring Variations in Income Growth in Southeastern United States
This paper examined income convergence in 875 counties of the 10-state southeastern region using Census data for 1980 and 2000. Logarithmic difference of average per capita income between those years was regressed on socioeconomic variables. Changes in education, labor force, and employment were strong determinants of income growth.
