Analyzing the dynamics of inter-regional inequality: The case of Canada
Authors: Sebastien Breau
Editors: Sergio Rey and Rachel Franklin
This paper explores the evolution of interregional income inequality in Canada by applying directional local indicators of spatial association (LISAs) to a dataset of regional income measures constructed from the micro-data files of the Census over the 1981 to 2016 period. The innovative geovisualization method proposed by Rey et al. (2011) and Murray et al. (2012) allows for the tracking of changes in the spatial configurations of the regional distribution of incomes. Different trajectories of change are identified, characterized mainly by a greater spatial polarization of incomes across regions in Canada. Evidence of an inverse relationship between the growth of inter-and intra-regional inequalities is also documented.
