Interregional Differentiation, Donor and Recipient Regions: a Variety of Estimates and Conclusions

The article argues that a full-fledged analysis of the scale, causes and consequences of interregional differences in production and consumption indi­cators cannot be carried out with a limited number of the most immediate statistical factors. The most typical ones - GRP per capita, average wages and per capita income - are insufficient for obtaining objective conclusions and identifying all the factors that cause interregional differentiation, and they also lead to overestimating the scale of such differentiation. Moreover, in order to determine the scale of donation and recipientism, it is also clearly insufficient to compare data on the amounts of budget revenues and regional consolidated budget expenditures. The article shows how different factors of interregional differentiation can be when defined with various approaches.
