Abstract

REIS, Lucas David Ribeiro; ARAUJO, Rogério César Pereira de  and  LIMA, João Ricardo Ferreira de. Uma Nota Sobre as Disparidades de Renda dos Municípios Nordestinos. Rev. Bras. Econ. [online]. 2020, vol.74, n.1, pp.65-74.  Epub May 08, 2020. ISSN 1806-9134.  https://doi.org/10.5935/0034-7140.20200004.

Considering the growth of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the Northeast in the last years, this study aims to analyze if such growth occurred in a way to reduce the income disparities between the municipalities of this region. For this, the hypothesis of ��-convergence, absolute and conditional, as well as ��-convergence was tested. The results showed that for the region as a whole, the municipalities have the two types of convergence, in addition to the convergence. The conditional ��-convergence proved to be poor, since the convergence velocity was greater than in absolute ��-convergence, and consequently a shorter half-life, being a reduction of two and a half years. This shows that the variables used in conditional ��-convergence (Firjan health and education), contribute to reduce the income disparities between the Northeastern municipalities.
