    Abstract

    The aim of this paper is to analyze the total factor productivity growth in the productive sectors of the Spanish regions over the period 1986-2001. A nonparametric approach is used to compute Malmquist productivity index and its contribution of technical change and efficiency changes. The obtained results show the relative importance of technological catching up in the most of activities and regions and the existence of important inefficiency levels in the production, even though the contribution of technical progress allows positive rates of productive growth. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar el crecimiento de la productividad total de los factores en los principales sectores productivos de las regiones españolas durante el periodo 1986-2001. Para llevar a cabo este análisis se emplea una aproximación no paramétrica que permite calcular el índice de Malmquist de cambio productivo y su descomposición en cambio de eficiencia, y cambio técnico. Los resultados obtenidos muestran la importancia relativa del factor de ineficiencia que actúa como rémora del crecimiento productivo en la mayor parte de actividades y regiones si bien la contribución del progreso técnico permite alcanzar tasas positivas de crecimiento productivo.
