Tertiarisation revisited in the perspective of Hill's views on services, with some insights on EU and France



    () (LaRGE Research Center, Université de Strasbourg)


A new definition of service has been proposed by Hill (1999) and endorsed by SNA and BOP last updates. The paper studies its consequences for industrial classifications, such as ISIC, and on the respective shares of goods and services producing sectors. The first section reminds the main characteristics of the new definition. The second section scrutinises the list of sectors of ISIC Rev. 4 and 3.1 in order to show within which category (goods or services producing) the headings falls. The major changes concerns what may be called manufacturing services and information goods producing sectors, the former being previously included in goods and the latter in services-producing. The third section proposes a measure of the share of each broad category for EU 27 (2008 - 2011) and France (1995 – 2011). The tertiarisation trend is preserved, even if several significant differences appear with standard presentations. Manufacturing services, when added to services-producing by far supersede Information good, added to goods-producing.
