Abstract: This study analyses how regional policy, which was introduced around 1970, has affected regional growth of real per capita incomes in Sweden in the post-war period. The study shows: (a) that real per capita incomes in Swedish counties have converged since 1945, (b) support counties have not grown faster than other counties after 1970, (c) selective regional policy supports, which constitute an important part of Swedish regional policy, do not affect the regional growth rates, and (d) government expenditures seem to affect the regional growth of real per capita incomes negatively.
