Per capita income convergence and internal migration in Spain: Are foreign-born migrants playing an important role?

Abstract: ABSTRACT. This paper aims to analyse the role played by internal migration of the foreign-bornpopulation in the process of income convergence at provincial level in Spain over the period1996?2005. First, it examines, using both classical and recent analytical approaches, the pro-vincial income convergence process. Second, the paper gives a succinct description of recenttrends in foreign-born internal migration. Third, the influence of these migration flows onprovincial income convergence is addressed by estimating several convergence equations. Theresults of this analysis seem to reject the hypothesis that foreign-born internal migration exertsa strong influence on the income convergence process
