Using Spatial Panel Data in Modelling Regional Growth and Convergence
In this paper we use spatial dependence panel data models to analyse regional growth behaviour in Italy. Controlling for fixed-effects allows us to disentangle the effect of spatial dependence (or spatial interaction) from that of spatial heterogeneity and of omitted variables and, thus, to properly investigate the regional convergence process within the country.
