We present estimations of a Cobb-Douglas production function with a steady change in TFP (total factor productivity) for the Russian economy, using quarterly data for the favorable period 1999-2008 and the period 1997-2009 as well. Compiling our baseline data on capital and labor, we present an estimation of the production function for 1999-2008, which shows that TFP is the major growth source. Adjusting the data for utilization, we also present estimations of the production function for 1997-2009. For the adjusted data we find that the key drive for the Russian growth is the capital accumulation, followed by TFP.
