Distribución regional de las transferencias intergubernamentales en Colombia 1994-2009

The aim of this paper is to present the regional distribution of intergovernmental transfers in Colombia for the 1994-2009 period for the provision of education and health. Based on a set of dispersion measures, allocations are assessed taking the spirit of the 1991 Constitution as a reference. The conclusion is that the Colombian state has been capable of realizing changes looking for a better allocation of the resources. Realized allocations keep an inverse relation with the fiscal capacity of subnational governments.
