Abstract: We use data envelopment analysis to estimate state-level productivity and then use the pooled mean group approach to investigate its long-run determinants. Results indicate that human capital, infrastructure, energy shocks, a diverse mix of industries and states with large urban populations are associated with higher long-run aggregate state productivity growth, while unionisation has no long-run effects.
