dc.description.abstractThis paper provides a novel assessment of spatial inequalities in Eastern Africa. For that purpose, we draw on sub-national data from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) for Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The study sample comprises 31 regions from these four countries, which are tracked over three survey waves – covering the period from 1998 to 2011. We compare the levels and trends of several indicators pertaining to population, health, education, living standards and employment. More importantly, we assess whether regional disparities have increased in a period characterized by strong economic growth – as the theory predicts. Our analysis suggests that most regions have recorded improvements, especially with regard to health, although there remains considerable scope for further progress. Inequality between regions has declined in some dimensions, most notably in education. However, spatial disparities remain high, thus calling for policy measures to ensure that economic growth in Eastern Africa is more inclusive.en
