Abstract

The paper decoposes the Theil index and ANOVA to understand interregional, urban and rural contributions to the overall variation in average personal incomes (API) in the Yugoslav municipalities. The paper finds that inter-regional variation contributes significantly - about 25 percent - to the overall variation in API across communities. Statistical tests of significance constructed from one-way ANOVA and two-way ANOVA confirm statistical significance. The results are consistent with the observed phenomenon of increasingly autarchic functioning of the regional economies in Yugoslavia.
