Growth accounting

Economic growth can be fostered either by raising the labour and capital inputs used in production, or by improving the overall efficiency with which these inputs are used together, i.e. higher multifactor productivity growth (MFP). Growth accounting involves decomposing total output growth, (GDP growth), into these three components. As such, it provides an essential tool for policy makers to identify the underlying drivers for growth.
