Productivity and unit labour cost by industry, ISIC Rev. 4 (Edition 2015)

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.
