BRACAMONTES NEVAREZ, Joaquín e ESCAMILLA DIAZ, Antonio. Convergencia absoluta y condicional en los municipios del estado de Sonora, 1989-2004. Estud. front [online]. 2008, vol.9, n.18, pp. 9-37. ISSN 0187-6961.
This paper tries to identify the existence of convergence, absolut as much as conditional, for the municipalities that conform the state of Sonora. Taking as a base the methodologic excercise of Mankiw, Romer and Weill (1992) that considers the first model of Solow (1956) and makes an extension of it including the human capital, evidence shows that there is no tendency for poor municipalities to grow more quickly than rich municipalities, which means that there is no process of convergence -nor absolute or conditional- in the municipalities of Sonora, independently of the development layer in which these are classified: municipalities with high, average or low development.
