Sectoral growth in the European Union: An overview of output and input trends
AbstractDifferences in the growth patterns of output and employment in sectors across countries is likely to offer policy makers insight into the type of conditions that might be conducive to economic growth and prosperity. However, the relative growth of industries within Europe and indeed across the world is often obscured by a lack of comparable breakdowns or data sources. Aggregate estimates of output and employment growth often hide a great deal of heterogeneity at the sector level, and yet a closer analysis of this level is likely to shed light on the sources of differences in growth performances between countries. Therefore the purpose of this paper is to consider trends in relative output and employment trends at the sector level across Europe using a newly available harmonised data source. The sectoral detail of this section is broadly at the 2 digit NACE classification, with some further breakdown into 3-digit NACE where data are available.
