H arris R. and M offat J. Total factor productivity growth in Local Enterprise Partnership regions in Britain, 1997-2008, Regional Studies . This paper decomposes aggregate total factor productivity (TFP) growth in Britain for 1997-2008 to show the contribution of different Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) as well as manufacturing and services and UK- and foreign-owned plants within LEPs. These contributions are further decomposed to show the role of productivity growth in continuing plants vis-à-vis reallocations in output shares. The results show that the largest LEPs, in population terms, with higher levels of job density, a greater reliance on manufacturing, more skilled and better qualified workers, and a lower turnover of businesses achieved the highest TFP growth. This is mostly the result of reallocations of output shares towards high productivity plants.
