AbstractThis work offers new insights into the determinants of service offshoring
across countries and across service industries. Combining different
data sources over the 2006-2009 period, I find that certain country
characteristics affect offshoring costs for all services, while the effects of
other characteristics depend on the coordination requirements of the respective
service industry. The results from a zero-inflated Poisson pseudomaximum
likelihood estimation indicate that the effects of a membership
in NAFTA, and a common colonial past on service offshoring patterns
depend on the task content of the services. These results are robust to
the control for unobservable country-level heterogeneity. The quality of
legal institutions, a common legal origin, geographic distance, and time
zone differences influence offshoring patterns identically across all service
industries.
