El propósito de este trabajo es analizar la composición del PIB de Santander, a fin de evaluar el desempeño relativo de los distintos sectores de su economía empleando un método comúnmente utilizado en la investigación económica regional: la metodología shift-share. El análisis se realiza para el período 2000-2007 y los resultados muestran que los sectores de comercio, industria y de servicios empresariales son los que más han aportado al crecimiento de Santander en este período. Dentro de la industria, el sector de refinación de petróleo y el de elaboración de productos alimenticios son los que más valor agregado generan. Además, se muestra que los indicadores sociales y de capital humano del departamento están por encima del promedio nacional.The purpose of this paper is to analyze the composition of Santander´s GDP in order to assess the relative performance of different sectors of the economy using a method commonly used in regional economic research: shift-share analysis.
