Productivity is a key source of economic growth and competitiveness and, as such, we need internationally comparable measures for assessing economic performance. The OECD Compendium of Productivity Indicators 2013 presents a comprehensive overview of recent and longer term trends in productivity levels and growth in OECD countries. It also highlights some of the key measurement issues faced when compiling cross-country comparable productivity indicators.



Sector productivity

Sectors differ from each other with respect to their productivity growth. Such differences may relate for instance to the intensity with which sectors use capital and skilled labour in their production; the scope for product and process innovation and the absorption of external knowledge; the degree of product standardisation; the scope for economies of scale; and the exposure to international competition.
