dc.description.abstractA method for analyzing productivity convergence based on frontier production functions is proposed.It is examined whether departures from the frontier|country{level inefficiencies|exhibitlong{run relationships and convergence. The method is applied to 1-digit industries of 14 OECDcountries from 1970{90. Results suggests that comovements in efficiency are concentrated betweenthe EU{countries. Catch{up is found in all but one sector. Even manufacturing, which previousstudies have found not to display convergence, shows signs of catch-up.It is examined whether departures from the frontier|country{level inefficiencies|exhibitlong{run relationships and convergence.
