In this work we develop a framework for statistical testing of significance of contributions to changes in economic growth rates (and productivity changes) in the Solow's growth accounting framework, which is the main contribution of the paper. We then also illustrate the developed methodology for testing significance of the impact of information and communication technologies capital on the labor productivity distribution of developed countries in 1980–1995.
Keywords:growth and productivity, developed countries, ICT impact.
