Productivity Comparisons
The CEPII has created a database which allows productivity levels in France to be compared with several countries. In 1994, this tool permitted the Centre to carry out a comparison between France and Germany (French and German Productivity Levels in Manufacturing: A Comparison Based on the Industry-of-Origin Method). The study was updated in 2001, with eastern Germany being included (The French-German Productivity Comparison Revisited: Ten Years after the German Reunification).

It has also been possible to study the relative performance of Mediterranean industries, within the framework of another study conducted in 2001 ( La productivité des industries méditerranéennes).

The data covers twenty branches, involving six countries that are compared to France (Egypt, Germany, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and Turkey). The data runs from 1980 to 1997, or to 2001 in some cases.

The database is made up of five excel files giving productivity relative levels, evolution indexes, relative levels evolution, and exchange rates. An other file give description of the acronyms used in the database. Complete methodology is available in french.
