    This paper incorporates data on efficiency and output per worker for 1965 and 1990 for 57 countries divided into four groups to seek an understanding of similarities and differences among them. Tools employed were testing for equality of means and testing for convergence. The findings indicate that the gaps between the groups were widened during the period studied for both efficiency and output per worker. While divergence was observed when all countries were grouped in one set, there were indications of convergence when the groups were treated separately.
