Summary: This project investigates the legality of growth of global productivity factors and the effects of structural changes to the growth of that productivity in the Republic of Croatia. Besides, a comparison of structure of global productivity factors growth and changes in the structure of economy, has been performing with the countries of Eastern and Western Europe.

Keywords: total factor productivity, productivity growth, productivity measurement bias, technological progress, structural changes,

Research goals: 1) To compile indispensable data for analysis of global productivity factors, and to adjust methodologically statistical sources in such a way as to minimize restrictions in interpretation and comparison of received results. 2) To estimate the structure and discover directions of acceleration and slowing down the growth of global productivity factors. To bring directions in firm connection with institutional frames within which the growth of global productivity takes places. To establish legalities by the means of which the changes in the structure of employment, structure of capital and structure of production influenced the movement of global productivity. To carry out the projection of global productivity movement. 3) To do the comparison of received results for the Republic of Croatia with the results for the other countries. 4) To qualify young and the other personnel to be completely equal in the analysis of global productivity with the personnel of the most progressive countries. Principally, all of the four groups of objectives have been realized. The results of research show, that till the beginning of war, the Republic of Croatia occured at the level of development which characterized the more developed and middle developed countries. In other words, the economic growth and the growth of global productivity in the Republic of Croatia is not behind the growth of Eastern and Western European countries. Moreover, the structure of the economy of the Republic of Croatia is more similar to the structure of the economy of Western European countries than to that of the Eastern European countries. All that points out, that in peacable conditions, the economy of the Republic of Croatia can relatively easily be included in Western and Eastern European trends.
