Second, analysts have examined the behaviour of particular output sectors. A number of authors have studied productivity in manufacturing reaching a wide range of conflicting conclusions. However, as explained in detail by Goldar and Mitra (2002), differences in the findings can be (___488___) to a variety of measurement issues, such as the use of singe versus double deflation to construct estimates of real growth1 in manufacturing value added. Goldar (2004) provides a careful recent update showing that TFP growth in manufacturing (___489___) to have slowed in the post reform period  raising additional puzzles discussed below. However, (___490___) difficulties in measuring employment within individual industries, our analysis focuses (___491___) on the broader industrial sector. The 3 studies that focus on India’s services sector (many of which discuss the issue of sustainability), and those that discuss agriculture, are discussed in the body of the paper. Given the large body of prior research, many of the results to be discussed below (___492___) already well known to those in the field.

In particular, the growth accounting framework, combined with our emphasis on data issues, pulls together concerns that have typically been treated separately, and in some cases, raise, implications that do not appear to have been (___493___) recognized.

They also provide new estimates for the contributions to overall growth of labor productivity growth within the major economic sectors Versus the gains from real location of labor and capital among the factors. Furthermore, we have examined a variety of additional data in our analysis of the role of capital accumulation providing estimates of the returns to schooling for human capital, and reporting on trends in sectoral saving and investment, for physical capital. Thus, this paper is comprised of four remaining sections. The next section details the construction of growth accounts for India, with considerable attention paid to the quality of the underlying data.
