Bosnia and Herzegovina - Economic sectors

The distribution of the labor force and the contribution of the economy's different sectors have been difficult to estimate because of the internal conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Labor force information is limited to that estimated in 1990, when 48 percent of the labor force was employed in industry and 11 percent in agriculture. By 1996, the GDP contribution was divided as follows: 19 percent in agriculture, 23 percent in industry and utilities, and 58 percent in services. The war caused the leading industries—particularly armaments— to suffer greatly, and the disruption of economic links between the units, sanctioned by the Dayton accord, further decreased the economy's viability.
