Abstract

The purpose of this article is to study the pattern of technical change in the service sector using an indicator ot total technology intensity which takes account of the R&D incorporated in purchases of intermediates and equipment. The service sector does not appear as homogeneous and some services are major users of technology. An international comparison over 8 countries does not show a clear pattern of convergence in total technology intensity except for the communication services. A comparison between France and Germany emphasises the differences between the relative importance of domestic and imported incorporated technology.
