[fre] Cet article se propose d'examiner de manière détaillée les productivités du travail au niveau sectoriel et agrégé pour les régions françaises sur la décennie 1980. Empruntant aux travaux initiés par Baumol, suivis par Barro et Sala-i-Martin notamment, il met l'accent sur les sources de la croissance propres aux nouvelles théories de la croissance (effort de recherche, effets de taille) ainsi que sur l'impact des réallocations inter-sectorielles de la main-d'œuvre. Il aboutit à une relativisation de la convergence régionale globalement observée, qui résulte essentiellement d'effets de composition inter-sectoriels. [eng] French regional productivities in the middle run, an outward convergence The aim of this article is to scan, in an accurate way, the French regional labor productivities on sectoral and aggregate levels during the 80's. Taking from Baumol or Barro & Sala-i-Martin works, this paper enhances them by pointing out the sources of growth analyzed by the new growth theories (research effort, size effects), and by underlying the impact of labor cross-sectoral reallocations. It leads to moderate the regional convergence observed globally, which results mainly from cross-sectoral composition effects.
