Estimation des taux de marge dans l'industrie manufacturière européenne

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

This brief note presents estimates of price cost margins (PCMs) obtained following the Roeger (1995) methodology using Amadeus as microeconomic dataset. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the dataset, and propose alternative datasets when longer times series or more representative samples are needed. Our results indicate the presence of large PCMs in our sample varying between 0.13 and 0.52. Large countries like Italy and France tend to have higher PCMs than the smaller countries, in particular in certain sectors like textiles and other transport equipments, but this is not the case for Spain. Moreover, Portugal appears to have larger PCMs than the other smaller countries.
