Regional economy, Wages, Wage level
The paper aims at explaining the regional wage determinants in Poland using the New Economic Geography approach. We test the hypothesis that regional wages are positively related to the regional economic potential, controlling for individual worker, firm, industry and regional characteristics. We demonstrate that the regional economic potential strongly influences the regional level of wages. Moreover, we find that individual characteristics also play an important role in wage determination in Poland. (original abstract)
