Productivity Measurement and Analysis

image of Productivity Measurement and Analysis

Productivity measurement and analysis are the main topics addressed in this book, which brings together contributions presented and discussed in two international workshops organized by the Statistics Directorate and the Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (DSTI) of the OECD. The first workshop was organised jointly by the OECD with Fundaccion BBVA and the Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Económicas and held in Madrid in October 2005, and the second one was organized jointly by the OECD and the Swiss Federal Statistical Office and the State Secretary for Economic Affairs of Switzerland and held in Bern in October 2006. The two workshops brought together representatives of statistical offices, central banks and other branches of government in OECD countries that are engaged in the analysis and the measurement of productivity developments at aggregate and industry levels.



Productivity Measurement at Statistics Netherlands

In 2007 the National Accounts of the Netherlands have been expanded with a set of multi factor productivity (MFP) statistics. There are two guiding principles. The fi rst is to construct a system of productivity statistics at the industry branch and macro level that is, to the extent possible, consistent with National Accounts statistics. By doing this we are joining Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United States; see OECD (2006) for a summary of all these systems.
