This paper explores the possible presence of a causal relationship from income to population. With this aim, US data at different geographical levels have been analyzed using a dynamic panel data estimation framework. The results obtained suggest that the more dissagregated the data the stronger the evidence of a causal effect from real income per capita growth to population growth.
