Recently, various policies have been implemented to attain balanced regional growth including distributing population and resources to outside of Seoul metropolitan area. In particular, relative developedness is considered when prioritizing investments to large-scaled public investment projects. Preliminary feasibility studies, for example, adopt and reflect ‘under-developedness index (UDI)’ to consider balanced regional growth when making final conclusion for whether to enforce or not.
This study seeks a more systematic and objective way to calculate a new UDI. Using statistical methods, it calculates a new UDI and compares it to existing UDI to validate a new UDI’s power to reflect reality, i.e., what experts recognize through their research and work experience. Also, it attempts to find policy implications with regard to balanced regional growth by interregional comparisons of results obtained as a byproduct of analyses.. (The rest omitted)
