    The paper explores the topical issue of regional income equalisation using a variety of data sources on both output and incomes in order to determine the degree of convergence at the level of the eight regional uthorities. The inter-regional variations in economic welfare are decomposed into a number of components relating to participation, employment, dependency and productivity.
