    GDP per capita and productivity levels

    This dataset includes indicators on labour productivity levels in terms of gross domestic product (GDP) and hours worked. Productivity and income estimates presented in this dataset are mainly based on GDP, population and employment data from the National Accounts of OECD countries. Hours worked are sourced from the National Accounts of OECD countries, the OECD Employment Outlook and national sources. Estimates of productivity levels and GDP per capita permit the comparison of standards of living and underlying factors across countries. Data are presented as annual datapoints from 1970 onwards.

    GDP per capita and productivity growth

    This dataset includes indicators on labour productivity growth defined in terms of gross domestic product (GDP), hours worked and capital services. Per capita GDP growth can be broken down into a part which is due to growth in labour productivity (GDP per hour worked) and a part which is due to increased labour utilisation (hours worked per capita). Labour productivity is a key driver of economic growth and changes in living standards, measured notably by growth in GDP per capita. Growth in labour productivity indicates a higher level of output for every hour worked. Labour productivity when measured by Unit Labour Costs (ULC) is also a key driver of international competitiveness. Data are presented as annual datapoints from 1970 onwards.

    Productivity and unit labour cost by industry, ISIC Rev. 4

    This dataset provides productivity indicators to analyse the sources of economic growth at detailed level of activity across countries. It includes annual measure of output (value added), labour input and compensation, unit labour cost and industry contribution to business sector growth. Sectors differ from each other with respect to their productivity growth. Moreover, understanding the drivers of productivity growth at the total economy level requires an understanding of the contribution that each sector makes. Data are presented as annual datapoints from 1970 onwards.
