Why Don't State Incomes Converge? Effective Worker Pay Does Not Differ among States.
Simon, Julian L.
Economics of Education Review, v12 n2 p105-15 1993
Differing educational levels affect mean income differences among states. However, mean earnings also differ when holding constant amounts of education and experience; persons in higher income states earn more. Immigrants show smaller state income than do natives, or no effect. Differences among states are mainly due to influences during development (when immigrants were not present) rather than during adulthood. (MLH)
