    Este artículo analiza la productividad, la eficiencia y sus factores determinantes en cuatro sectores de la construcción en Colombia: construcción de obras residenciales, construcción de obras civiles, actividades inmobiliarias y adecuación de obras de la construcción en el período 2005-2010. Los resultados con la aplicación de la metodología DEA, revelan que tan solo este último sector experimenta crecimientos acumulados de la productividad en un 0,1%. El análisis de la eficiencia muestra bajos niveles de esta que oscilan entre 78% y 54%. Por último, los factores explicativos de la eficiencia han resultado ser la cuota de mercado y el tamaño empresarial. ***** This paper analyzes the total factor productivity, efficiency and its determinants in four construction sectors in Colombia: residential, civil works, Real estate, and Adequacy during the period 2005-2010.
