Abstract

This study analyses the time, sectorial and spatial pattern of the process of accumulation of human capital in Spain during the period 1964-98. The results show the generalized nature of the improvements as the basic feature. The increase that has taken place in each sector proves much more relevant than the change in the sectorial structure of the different territorie3s when it comes to accounting for the trendsin the provinces. The data also indicates that there has been spatial convergence in human capital endowments and confirms the influence of these on the determination of the per capita income of the Spanish provinces in the long term.
