Formatted Abstract/Summary
We introduce a state-space approach to the modelling and estimation of group specific trends and time varying slopes in pooled time series regressions (fixed N, large T). Since the empirical application is centered on productivity analysis, we provide a stochastic frontier interpretation of this group specific temporal variation. A post-estimation growth accounting is introduced to provide a quantitative assessment of the main factors behind sectoral labour productivity growth. We make use of the EU-KLEMS dataset, covering the period 1977-2007 for 13 countries and 20 sectors of each economy.
