Sažetak
We use Croatia county-level data, to study growth determination and measure the speed of output per adult convergence. County-level data are particularly valuable for studying productivity convergence because they allow us to study a sample with substantial homogeneity and exceptional mobility of capital, labour and technology. The main aim of this paper is to try to find evidence of convergence in output per adult across the 21 Croatia counties, 1990– 2003, to test convergence we running unconditional, Solow and augmented Solow regression (with frequency of agro tourist engagement, too). Using data from County Statistical Yearbook 1990 & 2003 we try to examine whether the Solow growth model is consistent with domestic variation in the productivity. Agritourism is defined as any business conducted by a farmer for the enjoyment or education of the public, to promote the products of the farm and to generate additional farm income (Hilchey 1993). This paper seeks to reconcile the growth empiric’ s technique of Mankiw, Romer, and Weil with the empirical technique of Barro and Sala-í-Martin through the application of an econometric analysis on the regional database of Croatia covering the 1991-2003 period. We test if there has been σ convergence across Croatia's counties. Because output per adult person dispersion increased from 1991 to 2003 ; we find that the cross sectional variance has fluctuated a sustainable and no evidence of σ convergence. Since the divergence is indicated by positive sign β in OLS it is not surprising that the speed of divergence given by parameter  in NLLS is significant and positive number in unconditional growth model. But we didn’ t find hard evidence of conditional growth in our next econometric model, too. But at last, the conditional augmented Solow growth model results are theoretically excepted and these results give us confidence that our data can be used to address other issues concerning regional economic development in Croatia. The significant value of human capital results suggest that rise in secondary school enrolment to adult person ratio will raise the output-to-adult person ratio in the long run. The implied rate of convergence is obtained in augmented conditional Solow growth model. We didn’ t find hard evidence that deepening agro tourism across the counties can provide strategic way to narrow gap between rich and poor counties in Croatia.
