Dinãmica da Renda, Longevidade e Educação nos Municípios Brasileiros
This work analyses the evolution of relative Per Capita Income distribution, LiteracyRates, Years of Study and Longevity of Brazilian municipalities. The estimation oftransition matrices, methodology developed in Quah (1993b), modeled the national,regional and intra-regional convergence pattern for the period 1970 to 2000. Thechanges in the Brazilian municipality structure demanded the grouping of Municipalitiesinto Minimal Comparable Areas (MCA). The results revealed convergencefor the variables related to education, but convergence in clubs for the Per CapitaIncome and Longevity. The low income club is formed by the North and NortheastMCA, that presented approximately one third of the long term Per Capita Income inthe high income club, formed by the Center-West, South and Southeast. The longevityis converging to three clubs: a subtle higher level in the South and Southeast MCA,an intermediary level in the Center-West and North MCA and a low level in theNortheast MCA.
