This research discusses the reciprocal relationship between economic growth in Pekanbaru City and economic growth in Siak Regency, Pelalawan Regency, and Kampar Regency. Using quantitative methods and secondary data from the Central Bureau of Statistics was analyzed using the Two-Stage Least Square method then regressed using the Eviews 10 application. The results showed a positive and significant reciprocal relationship at α 0.05 between Pekanbaru city GRDP and Siak Regency GRDP. Coefficients 0.9626 and 1.0890. The expected effect of GRDP of Pekanbaru City and GRDP of Pelalawan Regency with a coefficient of 3.4663 and 0.2864 at α 0.05. Whereas Kampar Regency only has a unidirectional relationship, namely, the GRDP of Pekanbaru City has a positive and significant effect on Kampar's GRDP with a coefficient of 0.9527 at α 0.10. Apart from being caused by geographic conditions, this reciprocal influence is caused by leading sectors, including the pulp and paper processing industry, the oil and gas mining sector, and the oil palm plantation sector, which delegate economic activities between Siak Regency and Pelalawan Regency with Pekanbaru City. Meanwhile, GRDP Pekanbaru City and GRDP Kampar Regency only provide unidirectional spillover due to the dominance of the trade and construction sector in Pekanbaru City.</em></p> M.

In Kenya, the government is exerting all effort to ensure its citizens’ health care needs are safeguarded through increased budgeting and putting in place requisite legislative measures. However, like any other developing nation, the dream of equity in accessing health care is not satisfactorily realized due to many challenges. For pastoralist/nomadic communities in the country, who are deemed marginalized in a considerable number of spheres relative to communities subscribing to other subsistence strategies, the solution is far from being hoped for. This research asks the question “how can national health financing be transfigured to suit the need of pastoral-nomadic communities?”. The research adopted descriptive research design to survey household in the four constituencies of Marsabit County. Respondents were selected using random sampling. Structured questionnaire and focused group discussion was used to gather data and using logistic regression. Many of them do not have a formal education and hence formal employment to enable them have consistent income to pay for their health cover forcing them depend on donors. It was recommended that education should be enhanced so as to upscale the enrolment to health insurance. &nbsp;Further, they should be encouraged to join to a welfare group so as to access finances for payment of insurance subscription. The government should diversify mode of payment and also mobilize resources that will be used to help the poor pay for their health financing need.</p> MOHAMED DAWE Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Economics Development Research (IJEDR) 2020-12-20 2020-12-20 1 3 200 212 10.37385/ijedr.v1i3.158 The Analysis of Corporate Taxpayer Compliance and Its Implication to Self-Assessment System Implementation <p><em>Self-Assessment System will run effectively if the law implementation such as auditing the taxpayers and enforcing the tax sanction are done optimally.
