The data used in this study is obtained from the harmonized EUKLEMS Growth and Productivity Account database released in 2009. It includes variables that measure output and input growth , and derived variables such as multi-factor productivity at the industry level. The input measures include different categories of inputs: Capital, labor, energy, materials, ICT capital, and value added services inputs. The data sample composes a panel data of 950 observations taken from 25 South Korean industries observed for the period 1970–2007. Additional variables are also included such as the energy price, volumes, growth accounting, and some other control variables.
