The Productivity Statistics database includes indicators on labour productivity, multi-factor productivity (MFP) and capital services. It also includes OECD estimates of labour productivity levels and a breakdown of gross domestic product (GDP) per capita in its components. Data are internationally comparable.

    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.

    Labour productivity growth [discontinued]

    This dataset includes statistical indicators on labour productivity defined as gross domestic product (GDP) per hour worked. GDP for each country is expressed in national currency at constant prices whereas GDP for country groups/zones is expressed in USD at constant prices and PPPs. Labour productivity growth can also be analyzed by hours worked, labour productivity growth rate, GDP annual compound rate and more. Data are presented as annual datapoints from 1970 onwards.

    Capital services by type of asset [discontinued]

    This dataset includes indicators on capital input broken down by seven assets: IT equipment, communication equipment, other machinery and equipment, non residential construction, transport equipment, software, other intangibles, and three aggregates: total information and communication technology(ICT), total non ICT and total products of agriculture, metal products and machinery. Data are expressed in per cent and are available starting from 1985.

    Multi-factor productivity [discontinued]

    This dataset includes comparable rates of change of Multi-factor Productivity for the total economy, computed as the difference between the rate of change of output and the rate of change of total inputs; shares of compensation of labour input and of capital inputs in total costs for the total economy measured at current prices (compensation of labour input corresponds to the compensation of employees and self-employed persons and compensation of capital input is the value of capital services); and total inputs calculated as volume indices of combined labour and capital inputs for the total economy. The indices have been constructed as weighted averages of the rate of change of total hours worked and the rate of change of capital services. Thus, the core variables used this table in order to assess productivity are growth of capital input, growth of labour input, growth of multifactor productivity, growth of GDP, and share of labour costs which are all measured in percentages. Data are presented from 1985 onwards.

    Breakdown of gross domestic product per capita in its components [discontinued]

    This dataset presents gross domestic product per capita broken down in its components for one year. Productivity and income levels are calculated using GDP at current prices and converted in USD using 2010 Purchasing Power Parities. Estimates of productivity levels and GDP per capital are computed with variables such as GDP per head of population, GDP per hour worked, gap in labour utilization with respect to the US, gap in GDP per capita, gap in GDP per hour worked. Data are available for the year 2010

    OECD estimates of labour productivity levels [discontinued]

    This dataset comprises estimates of productivity levels and GDP per capita which enable the comparison of standards of living and underlying factors across countries. The OECD estimates are based on GDP and employment from OECD Annual National Accounts and on hours worked from OECD Employment Outlook, the OECD Annual. National Accounts and national sources. Labour productivity is defined as gross domestic product per hour worked. Data for countries and zones are presented in current US dollars but also expressed vis-à-vis the United States’ labour productivity levels. Data are presented for the year 2010.

    Productivity by industry [discontinued]

    This dataset provides productivity indicators to analyze the sources of economic growth at detailed level of activity across countries. It includes annual measure of output (value added), labour and capital inputs, share of labour input in total cost, multi-factor productivity and labour productivity.
