Welcome to the Groningen Growth and Development Centre (GGDC). The GGDC is a platform for research on economic growth and development. This research is largely based on a range of comprehensive databases on indicators of growth and development that the Centre compiles and maintains on a regular basis. Furthermore the GGDC organises seminars and conferences.
Making research data widely available
This website is divided into four main research areas: Productivity, Value Chains, Historical Development and Structural Change. Each area includes several databases, along with documentation, references to related research papers, as well as relevant news items and events.
