  1. However, the productivity (along the lines of the Solow–Swan (neoclassical) model; see, Barro and Sala-i-Martin 2004): where growth rate of output as ∆Y/Y = aK/K + (1 − a)∆L/L + ∆A/A, and TFP can be measured as ∆A/A (TFP) = ∆Y/Y − (aK/K + (1 − a)∆L/L). Where labor productivity growth (average per worker) = ∆(Y/L)/(Y/L) = ∆A/A (Since the growth rate of capital per unit of labor is zero in the steady state (see Solow 1956), the growth accounting formula can be written simply in terms of the labor productivity growth rate)
