En los últimos años, se han realizado diversos estudios a nivel mundial utilizando el modelo de crecimiento y convergencia económica, a través de países y de regiones. Para el caso de México, hasta la segunda mitad de los noventas comienza el análisis empírico de la convergencia económica a nivel regional. En los últimos 30 años se observan disparidades regionales que han surgido en México y han alterado el pensamiento convencional con respecto a la persistencia de la convergencia regional en Norteamérica. En el presente estudio, se desarrolla el modelo de crecimiento económico y convergencia utilizando variables de capital humano. Posteriormente, se analiza empíricamente la evolución de las disparidades regionales en términos de ingreso per capita en México, condicionando el estudio a las variables de capital humano. Se obtiene un resultado de convergencia en el ingreso condicionado al capital humano para el periodo 1970-2000. El estudio compara los resultados de México con los resultados más importantes del modelo de crecimiento y convergencia económica en los Estados Unidos, Canadá y Europa. This paper applies the regional convergence hypothesis of economic growth based on the neoclassical model. During the period 1970-2000, Mexico shows state convergence in per capita income conditional on the fundamental human capital variables. The study compares the results with previous studies in Mexico, The United States, Canada and Europe.
