Notes: The series `rural branches in unbanked locations (with controls)’ graphs the yearwise coefficients on initial financial development (measured as number of bank branches in 1961) from a
regression of the form described in equation (2). The series `rural branches in unbanked locations (implied pattern)’ graphs the yearwise coefficients implied by the trend break model in column
(1), Table 1. In both cases the dependent variable is the number of rural branches opened in unbanked locations. opened per capita in rural un-banked locations in state i and year t ;
Splice this with panel data set on different elements of output for the period 1961-2000
What is the relationship between initial ﬁnancial development of a state
and subsequent rural branch expansion? BR = αi + βt + γt × Bi1961 + δt × Xi1961 + εit
Our measure of initial ﬁnancial development (Bi1961 ) enters the regression
interacted with year dummies, with t denoting the year-speciﬁc coefﬁcients the difference between t + 1 and t tells us how a state’s initial ﬁnancial development affected rural branch growth between years t and
t + 1.
