This paper examines regional convergence of income and education in Norway. Results show that education levels converge and are equalised across the country, and this process coincides with income convergence. However, the test indicates that transitions in the income and education distributions are basically unrelated. The education level increases in large cities with limited income growth and the income growth is strong in regions with continued low education level
