Abstract

This paper presents a shift-share analysis of labor productivity in Mexico. Following a brief review of the role of rising labor productivity in recent economic growth, the analysis focuses on 1) the possible contribution to increases in labor productivity of interregional labor force migration, and 2) the impact of intersectoral labor force shifts within the Mexican economy. The paper concludes that the shift factor is declining as a contributor to productivity growth, both regionally and sectorally, at the same time that migration's contribution to growth in the labor force is on the increase.
