Cross-country comparisons of labour productivity levels

Productivity is a key source of economic growth and competitiveness and, as such, internationally comparable indicators of productivity are central for assessing economic performance. Productivity is commonly defined as a ratio between the volume of output and the volume of input(s). It measures how efficiently production inputs, such as labour and/or capital, are being used in an economy to produce a given level of output.
