Abstract

This paper establishes a pattern of divergence for median family income in the 1980s and argues that regional specialisation in producer services contributed to upward divergence of regions with above average income. Because producer services are concentrated in cities, the growth of median household income in the 51 largest US cities over the 1980s is analysed, for all households and for black households. Cities more specialised in producer services at the beginning of the decade had much better growth than cities more specialised in manufacturing
