Abstract

This paper examines the inequality characteristics for regional per capita personal income in metropolitan and nonmetropolian areas. Total inequality is disaggregated into between and within portions. The findings show no statistically significant differences between metro and nonmetro. For both metro and nonmetro during the early 1970s decade, there was a general trend toward equality whereby the nonmetro areas’ income approached the metro areas’ income but showed significant divergences thereafter. *** DIRECT SUPPORT *** A00DH021 00005
