The Implementation of the Taxonomic Spatial Measure of Development in the Analysis of Convergence in the Standard of Living

Abstract

The main goal of this paper is to analyse the existence of the social convergence in the European Union between 19952012. The social convergence refers to a reduction in the dispersion of the standard of living across countries. A taxonomic spatial measure of development was used as the standard of living approximation. The use of the new approach proposed by E. Antczak allowed for an explanation of the disparities in the analysed phenomenon by taking into account the immeasurable spatial factor. A variety of techniques were used to test for convergence. The existence of sigma, beta and gamma convergence was tested for the global aggregated measure of the standard of living and, furthermore, for 10 groups of factors affecting this phenomenon.
