This paper aims to evaluate structural shifts in the regional per capita income distribution in Europe between the periods 1980-1993 and 1993-2005. After a brief analysis of several aspects of the distribution (inequality, external shape, polarisation and spatial dependence), we focus on intra-distribution dynamics by applying a novel causative matrix model that reveals strong structural shifts. In particular, increase in relative persistence during the second period has been the major change… CONTINUE READING
