Growth across States in the 2000s

Evidence of Convergence

This article employs two measures of unconditional convergence – sigma and beta convergence – and fi nds evidence supporting convergence in growth for the span 2001-10. Convergence is markedly evident for all states (non-special category and special category considered together) and non-special category states, while convergence among the special category states is slightly weak. This is in continuation of the arguments in Kumar and Subramanian (“Growth in India’s States in the First Decade of the 21st Century: Four Facts”, EPW, 21 January 2012).
