We use the data of 461 counties and cities, the period of 2006-2013, Partial Least Square for testing hypotheses. Empirical evidence shows that decentralization significantly effect on capital, growth, and welfare. Capital has a significant effect on growth but does not has a significant effect on welfare. Growth has a significant effect on welfare.
