Abstract

This paper estimates Okun's coefficient for certain regional areas in Greece over the period 1960-1997. Through the Hordic-Prescott filtering anf the band-pass filtering the empirical analysis shows that the coefficient do not exhibits substantial interregional differences, exept for the case of Epirus and North Aegean Ilands.
