Geospatial Analysis of Income Growth in Southeastern United States


  • Gyawali, Buddhi Raj
  • Banerjee, Swagata (Ban)


Income convergence and both endogenous and exogenous factors causing income growth in the southeastern United States were examined by using county level census data between 1980 and 2000. The study found that spatial variations in education, employment, and industries concentrations were strongly related with income convergence in the region.
