Conclusions and Policy Implications
This concluding chapter contributes to the discussion in two ways. First, it presents a ‘grand view’ in which it discusses the various components of productivity in detail, and then looks at long-term historical developments where changing economic structures are taken into account. Second, it presents results from an empirical analysis in which it considers both the ‘extensive margin’ of productivity (absenteeism at an individual level) and the ‘intensive margin’ of productivity (productivity conditional on being present at work at a group level or firm level).
