We use firm-level data from the World Bankâ€™s Regional Program on Enterprise Development, covering Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Tanzania for 1991â€“2003. Econometric results confirm well-known relationships, such as a positive association between export intensity and TFP, which implies that more productive firms are more likely to select in to exporting.
