Contributions of State to Regional Income Dispersion
Interdisciplinary Studies and Professional Development
This paper examines proportionate contributions of states to total income dispersion among the states within the regions in the United States from 1929 to 1997. The criterion for equitable distribution is that each state receices a share of the total population comparable to its share of income. The coefficient of variation for each region on a yearly basis is employed. The results provide evidence for minor differences in contribution to regional income dispersion between component states.
