Abstract: This paper explicitly seeks to confront theory with fact regarding regional convergence taking the prefectures of Greece as a case study. The main question to be tackled in this paper is whether prefectures of Greece converge under conditions of s or b-convergence. The concept of s-convergence is approximated empirically by the measures of standard deviation, coefficient of variation and the Herfindahl ratio. The techniques proposed by Baumol and subsequently by Friedman are used for the assessment of b-convergence. The empirical assessment is carried out for the period 1970 to 2000. Empirical results reject the hypothesis of b-convergence, while provide support to s-convergence.
