A report on "Growth of Russian regions: a spatial econometrics approach" by Vera Ivanova (guest of MSSE).
We study the impact of spatial determinants on economic growth in Russia. The research is conducted on the basis of region-level data using methods of spatial econometrics. We find that the key spatial factors of regional economic growth are population, labor density and location of the region,. We also show that these effects are cought only after pointing out some outliers which enjoy free access to specific resources non-available for the others.
