Human capital and the changing structure of the Indian economy

Mohammad Amin () and Aaditya Mattoo

No 4576, Policy Research Working Paper Series from The World Bank

Abstract: Using panel data for the fourteen major states of India over the 1980-2000 period, the authors estimate the effect of human capital endowment on the performance of the state economies. They find that greater availability of skilled workers had a positive and significant impact on output in the service sectors. They do not find any such effect for the manufacturing sectors. The paper shows that the differential effect on services and manufacturing arises because service sectors are more skill intensive.
