Regional inequality, particularly in highly populous developing nations with immature market mechanisms and interregional interdependence, has been a significant issue in policy debates and empirical research on global society. By introducing analytical tools and their applications considering the case of Indonesia, this book bridges the gaps between theory and practice in regional inequality analysis. As it presents several data analysis methods using Stata, a statistical software package, readers can develop their analytical skills through the learning-by-doing process.
Thus, it is used as a textbook and teaching materials in master’s degree programs, thesis supervision, and short-term training programs for government officials and practitioners.
This book is based on the rich teachings and research of Professor AKITA, the former specially appointed professor at Rikkyo (Professor Emeritus of the International University of Japan). I am pleased that we can contribute to expanding Rikkyo’s global presence as a leading research university through this publication
And last, but not least, I would like to dedicate this book to the memory of Professor Emeritus Noriyoshi SHIRAISHI (former board chairperson of Rikkyo Educational Corporation), who expended great efforts to enhance Rikkyo’s global presence.
