About the product
The service sector, including personal and collective services, has been written about in many economic publications. However, most of them focus on selected branches such as health, education and tourism by individual or a limited number of countries. This set of papers provide an overview of trends, problems and prospects for the development of personal and collective services in Europe. It also provides an international comparison of service sector employment growth for seven OECD countries. Consumption of services by households are also analysed.
