Economic Research and Policy Analysis Branch Working Paper Series: Working Paper 2014-03: Industry Structure Change and the Post-2000 Economic Growth Slowdown: A Canada-U.S. Comparison

This paper examines the contribution of individual industries to real GDP and labour productivity growth in the business sector in Canada and the United States in the 1987–2000 and 2000–2008 periods. It also highlights the differences that have emerged between the Canadian and U.S. business sectors through a new decomposition technique using chained dollars instead of constant dollars to determine real economic output.
