MIERES BREVIS, Michelle. The dynamics of inequality in Chile: A regional look. RAE [online]. 2020, vol.35, n.2, pp.91-133. ISSN 0718-8870.

The study shows the dynamics of inequalities in Chile (1990-2016) from a regional perspective. A broad database is constructed including different measures of income inequality, revealing the enormus heterogeneity across the Chilean regions. The data shown that the most unequal regions are also those with the lowest GDP per capita and other development indicators. At the geographical level, the southern regions are the losers in terms of development and inequality. It is shown that there exists regional convergence in terms of GDP per capita and in the Gini coefficient, despite the high persistence in inequality over the period.

Keywords : Inequality; economic growth; regional growth; economic development; convergence.
