SIERRA, Alcides de Jesús Padilla. Using variables of economic activity in the estimation of microterritorial GDP per capita. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2015, vol.34, n.65, pp.349-376. ISSN 0121-4772.

This study proposes a methodology for the calculation of gross domestic product (GDP) per capita of major cities in Colombia. To do this, we used proxy variables of economic activity. As a result, it is noted that, unlike previous studies, the power consumption and the number of telephone lines proved to be determinants of urban economic activity

Keywords : Measurement of GDP per capita; econometric modeling; regional economics.
