Going for Growth is the OECD’s annual report highlighting developments in structural policies in OECD countries. It identifies structural reform priorities to boost real income for each OECD country and key emerging economies (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa). The Going for Growth analysis also regularly takes stock of reform implementation in all the countries covered.

This report provides internationally comparable indicators that enable countries to assess their economic performance and structural policies in a wide range of areas. Each issue also has several thematic studies.

The GDP per capita gap relative to the upper half of the OECD narrowed rapidly during the boom period of 2000-08, before widening during the global crisis. The resumption of relatively rapid output growth in 2010-11 has resulted in renewed convergence. The per capita income gap is exclusively accounted for by lower productivity, as Russia has a relatively high labour utilisation rate.
