[EN] Aggregate labor productivity growth can be expressed by both productivity growth within individual sectors and reallocation of labor between sectors. An understanding of the dynamics of aggregate productivity growth requires insight into the contributions of these two effects. This note provides a glimpse of the sectoral sources of the aggregate labor productivity growth in Turkey between 2001 and 2008 conducting a simple analysis using information coming from the nine sectors of the Turkish economy. Productivity growth within the nine sectors explains 71.9 percent of the aggregate labor productivity growth in Turkey. Manufacturing (27.1 percent in total) contributes most to the labor productivity growth.
