The Regional Growth Pattern in Sweden: A Search for Hot Spots
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
This paper gives an exploratory description of the regional growth pattern in Sweden during the period 1981-1999. The main issue is to test the hypothesis that municipalities with high average income growth rates are more spatially clustered than could be caused by pure chance. The paper is purely descriptive where we make use of two statistical tests for spatial correlation as well as maps to identify what we reefer to as significance, the hypotheseis that municipalities with similar average growth rates are more clustered than could be expected from pure chance. In particular, regional Hot Spots are found near the major city of Stockholm and in the Gislaved/Gnosjö region.
