Progress in Service Sector Productivity Measurement: Review Article on "Productivity in the U.S. Services Sector: New Sources of Economic Growth"

  • Erwin Diewert

Measurement of productivity in the service sector has always represented a challenge for economists. "Productivity in the U.S. Services Sector: New Sources of Economic Growth", by Jack Triplett and Barry Bosworth from the Brookings Institution is reviewed. The authors have produced a textbook on the different types of measurement error that will force economists to take their empirical estimates with a considerable dose of caution. Both economic statisticians and policy makers will find the book invaluable.
