This report presents a comprehensive overview of recent and longer-term trends in productivity levels and growth in OECD countries, accession countries, key partners and some G20 countries. An introductory chapter features an analysis of latest developments in productivity, employment and wages.


Executive summary

Labour productivity growth in the OECD area remains weak. Since 2010, annual growth in labour productivity has slowed to 0.9%, about half the rate recorded in the pre-crisis period. Labour productivity growth has also slowed in OECD countries with relatively low labour productivity levels, undermining the pace of convergence. A similar picture surfaces for emerging economies, in particular in Brazil, the Russian Federation and South Africa, who have fallen further behind the productivity frontier with subdued performance in recent years.
