Title: Government quality and spatial inequality: A cross-country analysis

Author(s): Roberto Ezcurra and Andrés Rodríguez-Pose

Publication Date: November 2013

Keyword(s): government quality and spatial inequality

Programme Area(s): International Trade and Regional Economics

Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between government quality and spatial inequality across 46 countries over the period 1996-2006. The results of the analysis point to the existence of a negative and significant association between government quality and the magnitude of regional disparities. Countries with better quality of government register lower levels of spatial inequality. This finding is robust to the inclusion in the analysis of additional explanatory variables that may aff ect both regional disparities and governance outcomes. The observed link between government quality and spatial inequality is confirmed by various robustness tests.
