New Evidence of Convergence Across Canadian Provinces: the Role of Urbanization

Author

Listed:
  • Coulombe, S.

Abstract

This paper uses the conditional model for explaining the relative evolution of per capital income across the ten provinces of the Canadian federation between 1950 and 1996. Provincial relative per-capita income steady states are determined by the relative rates of urbanization.
