In order to capture low occupational prestige, ...

In addition, the savings rate strongly ...

First, it identifies spatial regimes using the exploratory spatial data analysis. Second, it examines the impact of spatial effects on the convergence process. Our results show that the overall speed of regional convergence in ...
