Title: Regional Growth and income convergence in the western black belt counties of Alabama: evidence from census block group data

Author: Gyawali, Buddhi; Fraser, Rory; Bukenya, James; Schelhas, John;

Date: 2010

Source: International Journal of Ecology & Development

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This paper examines the effects of growth in African Ameriocan population, employment, and human capital on growth in per capita income at the census block group (CBG) level using ordinary least square and spatial reqression models. The results indicate the presence of conditional incaom conbergence between 1980 and 2000 with poorer CBGs growing faster than the wealthier CBGs. The results also suggest a significant negaitve relationship between per capita income growth and growth in African-American population. In addition, this study finds that sub-county level data is useful for a realistic understanding of economic growth processes and patters in rural communities.
