Spatial and sectoral analysis of productivity-wage dissimilarities in Romania
AbstractLabour productivity and wages are two major determinants of the economic activity and their connection is a constant concern for the economists, as well as for employers and policy-makers. This paper is aiming to measure to which extent is the variation of productivity consistent with the distribution of wages, employing two patterns of comparison: by region and by economic branch. For this purpose, we developed a revised form of the coefficient of structural changes, in order to determine the regional/ sectoral dissimilarities between productivity and wage.
