Productivity is a key source of economic growth and competitiveness. The OECD Compendium of Productivity Indicators 2015 presents a comprehensive overview of recent and longer term trends in productivity levels and growth in OECD countries. It also highlights key measurement issues faced when compiling cross-country comparable productivity indicators.



Gaps in GDP per capita

GDP per capita levels are typically used to compare living standards across countries. Differences in GDP per capita levels across countries can arise from differences in labour productivity levels and from differences in labour utilisation (hours worked per capita). The latter can represent differences in unemployment and participation rates of the working age population, on the one hand, and working hours per employed person, on the other.
