Abstract

This study is to examine the relationship between income inequality and development across Malaysian states by using yearly data which cover the period ranging from 1984 to 2012. A panel analysis is used to run the estimation in 13 of Malaysian states. The methodologies that have been employed in this study included Breusch-Pagan Lagrange Multiplier Test, Hausman specification test and panel regression. A scattered graph between GDP per capita and GINI coefficient will be plotted to test the existence of Kuznets inverted-U curve hypothesis. The empirical findings show the existence of Kuznets inverted-U curve in seven out of thirteen of Malaysian states. There is a negative relationship between income inequality and development in Malaysia.
