The percentage of lagging regions in Indonesia is still relatively high. On the other hand, high economic growth
was also not able to reduce the percentage of lagging regions in Indonesia. Many poverty reduction programs
carried out but cannot provide meaningful results. Therefore, this study aims to map the regions lagging behind
in Indonesia in the hope that the focus of poverty reduction programs starting from the left that have not been
able to catch up. The mapping is viewed through the convergence rate of economic growth and the level of
dispersion. The results of this study indicate that almost all the regions / provinces in Indonesia cannot be left
behind to catch up. From thirty provinces in Indonesia, twenty-six provinces of which indicate that the growth of
gross regional domestic product (GDP) per capita is divergent and the fifteen provinces of which the dispersion
increases. This translates into twenty-six provinces are difficult to catch. In addition, the increased propensity
of the dispersion shows GDP per capita level of deployment is very lame. In contrast, only four provinces,
namely Jambi, South Sumatra, West Java, lamping and per capita GDP growth shows convergent and can catch
up and only the province of West Java that the dispersion shows a declining tendency.

Keywords: absolute convergence, sigma convergence, economic growth.
