Example text

Most of these regions show productivity growth rates higher than the average but lower growth rates in terms of employment (24). Only 5 regions have had a virtuous behaviour (growing upper the average on productivity and employment. On the contrary, 18 of the 29 regions that move downward (losers) are in a situation of economic decline, with productivity and employment under the European average. These results suggest the need to analyse productivity gains taking into account production and employment figures as well as the contribution of each one of the productive sectors.

2 Mobility of European Regions The dynamics of European regions can be effectively studied through a Markov systems approach. As has been underlined in some works (Quah, 1993; Armstrong and Kevernodel, 1997) this technique permits an adequate capture of the mobility of regions. Our proposal in analysing these shifts in the European ranking is to determine some of the factors characterising the winning regions from the losing ones. While it is not necessary to go into a detailed description of this technique, it should be noted that it is a useful tool for studying convergence from a mobility perspective, given the assumption that income levels between regions follow a stochastic process (Quah, 1993).
