Abstract

This paper provides total factor productivity estimates for a sample of 115 European Regions over the period 1976-2000. In particular, a set of Cobb-Douglas production functions is estimated using panel techniques and allowing for heterogeneity across regions. Moreover, on the basis of specific panel tests, the paper shows that there is empirical evidence which suggests the presence of unit roots in the series and panel cointegration tests are applied to guard against spurious regression.
