It leaves out of account the contributions made by changes in the composition of labor input and capital input which alter the effectiveness of hours of labor or units of tangible capital. 6. S. 5; inter-period changes within Frame I and Frame II.

And on this basis we judge that the contribution from the growth of capital quality to the growth of labor productivity was of the order of only one-tenth of one percent a year from 1870 to 1900. Having in mind these considerations regarding both labor quality and capital quality, we think it reasonable to regard the nineteenth century estimates of crude TFP as at least roughly comparable with the more refined figures for the twentieth century.

The coefficient G K is the elasticity of output with respect to capital and represents the weight to be attached to the growth of capital in contributing to the growth of output.
