Notes
  • This paper examines the roles of the ICT-producing sector and of key ICT-using industries in overall productivity growth in OECD countries. The ICT-producing sector provides a considerable contribution to productivity growth in several OECD countries and explains some of the pick-up in productivity growth in the United States in the second half of the 1990s. ICT manufacturing, in particular, has been characterised by very high rates of productivity growth in many countries. Some countries with a large ICT sector, such as Finland and Ireland, have experienced above-average multifactor productivity (MFP) growth in the second half of the 1990s. But some countries with a small ICT sector, such as Australia, have also observed rapid MFP growth, suggesting that a large ICT sector is no prerequisite for faster MFP growth. In some countries, notably Finland and the United States, certain ICT-using ... La croissance de la productivité dans les industries productrices et utilisatrices de technologies de l’information et des communications : Une source de différentiels de croissance dans la zone de l’OCDE ? Ce document analyse les rôles respectifs du secteur qui produit les biens et services basés sur les technologies de l'information et des communications (TIC) et des principales industries utilisatrices de TIC dans la croissance globale de la productivité. Le secteur producteur de TIC contribue de façon considérable à la croissance de la productivité dans plusieurs pays Membres de l'OCDE et explique aussi en partie la reprise de la croissance de la productivité aux États-Unis au cours de la seconde moitié des années 90. Dans les industries manufacturières du secteur des TIC, en particulier, la croissance de la productivité a été très forte dans de nombreux pays. Certains pays qui disposent d'un important secteur des TIC (Finlande, Irlande) ont connu des taux de croissance de la PMF plus élevés au cours de la seconde moitié des années 90. Toutefois, d’autres pays dont le secteur des TIC est plus réduit, comme l'Australie, ont eux aussi enregistré une progression rapide de la PMF, ce qui ...
