Abstract: Recent data on the proton F2 structure function in the resonance region suggest that local quark-hadron duality works remarkably well for each of the low-lying resonances, including the elastic, to rather low values of Q2. We derive model-independent relations between structure functions at x∼1 and elastic electromagnetic form factors, and predict the x→1 behavior of nucleon polarization asymmetries and the neutron to proton structure function ratios from available data on nucleon electric and magnetic form factors.
