This article assesses productivity growth across Spanish regions and industries through a production-frontier approach. It is shown that capital deepening is the primary contributor to productivity growth, closely followed by human capital and technological change. Analysis of sectoral data shows marked differences in productivity performance; and aggregate productivity growth is driven by intra-sectoral productivity dynamics rather than by structural change
