Service Sector Output In Developing Countries
This paper looks at the GDP per capita and service-sector output per capita for 79 developing countries across the globe. Based on the relationship of these two variables, we derive outliers from our sample data. These outlier countries have a relatively low percentage of service sector output per capita compare to their GDP per capita.
After discussing the sample characteristics we are going to make a short description about 3 of the 5 outliers in our sample. We will look at some general information of these countries about their economy, service sector and labor force. After these general information in chapter 4 we will investigate some of the possible factors which effect the service output in developing countries.
These factors play different importance in each country`s service sector output and we will elaborate these findings in chapter 5. The factors what we found influential for the service sector output are: education level, employment in service sector as percentage of total employment, percentage of population living in urban areas, national poverty lines, exports in the service sector per capita and finally income per capita.
Chapter 1 - Introduction
1.1 Motivation of the research
We tried to search for a reliable variable, which has important implications for developing countries. We decided to choose the service-sector output per capita as our variable of measure. The service sector includes all kind of sectors like banking sector, communication, consumer services and different government services. All of these need massive amount of capital to evolve and high level of coordination.(责任编辑：BUG)
