The growth in the Swedish business sector was among the highest in the OECD between 1995 and 2010. The purpose of this project is to study the extent to which the rapid growth rate can be explained by investment in information and communications technology (ICT) and by investment in research and development (R&D).

For the first time and thanks to the availability of new data from Statistics Sweden, it will be possible to construct capital stocks for ICT and R&D at the industry level. Moreover, it will be possible to decompose the ICT capital stock into hardware and software.
