Öz Bu makale bölgesel kamu harcamaları ve bölgesel ekonomik büyümearasındaki iliskiyi arastırır. Çalısmada bölgesel kamu harcamalarının bölgeselhâsılaya oranı ve kisi basına bölgesel hâsıla büyüme oranı değiskenlerikullanılmıstır. Çalısma 1990–2001 dönemine ait yedi coğrafi bölgeyikapsamaktadır. Uygulama bulgularına ulasmak için panel veri analizlerindekullanılan sabit etkili tahmin modeli kullanılmıstır. Çalısmada, özellikle 1990’lıyılların sonlarına doğru kullanılmaya baslanan panel veri birim kök testlerine deyer verilmistir. Sonuçlar bölgesel kamu harcamaları ve bölgesel ekonomikbüyüme arasında negatif ve istatistiksel olarak anlamsız bir iliskinin olduğunugöstermistir.Anahtar Kelimeler: Bölgesel kamu harcamaları, bölgesel ekonomik büyüme,panel veri analizi, panel veri birim kök testleri Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between regional publicexpenditures and regional economic growth. In this study proportion to regionalproduct of regional government expenditure, and per capita regional productgrowth ratio variables were used. The study covers seven geeoraphic regions inTurkey for the period 1990–2001. Fixed effect model was used for panel dataanalysis. In the study, we used panel data unit root tests which are popular afterend of 1990’s. The results show that there is a negative but statisticallyinsignificant relationship between regional public expenditures and regionaleconomic growth.Key Words: Regional public expenditures, regional economic growth, panel dataanalysis, panel data unit root tests
