This paper quantifies the contribution of information technology (IT) to growth in France at the macro-level. On the labour side, the paper also provides evidence of the role played by hours worked, by stressing the contributions of various factors to labour quality and the way they affected labour productivity in the period 1995-2001. Cet article évalue la contribution des technologies de l’information à la croissance française au niveau macroéconomique. Nous mettons l’accent sur le rôle de la qualité du travail dans l’évolution de la productivité, notamment sur la période 1982-2001 et analysons les facteurs qui favorisent ou au contraire détériorent cette qualité.
