We present results based on this treatment of the data, to generate results comparable to those of Basu et al. In the next section, we utilize different treatments of the data. The objective of this regression is to determine whether productivity growth in 2001–05 is larger in industries that had rapid share-weighted ICT growth in the mid-1990s or in the late 1990s or in the early 2000s or, of course, in none of the above. Statistics about the macro performance of Belgium, France, and USA during the period 1980–2005 and about the acceleration of TFP growth for the three countries in the 1990s is available in the Appendix.
