Abstract:
The thesis focuses on four thematic areas on efficiency and productivity growth using a sample of 19 Sub-Saharan African countries from 1960-2002. The study utilises stochastic frontier and panel data techniques to provide estimates of national efficiency scores; explain the variation in national efficiency scores; estimate and decompose total factor productivity growth; and finally, looks at the contribution of human capital to total factor productivity growth and components, as well as its role in the technological 'catch-up' process in SSA.
