The OECD Productivity Database aims at providing users with the most comprehensive and the latest productivity estimates. The update cycle is on a rolling basis, i.e. each variable in the dataset is made publicly available as soon as it is updated in the OECD Annual National Accounts (ANA) Database. However, timely data issues may arise and affect individual series and/or individual countries. Productivity and ULC data by main economic activity uses gross value added (in basic prices) as output measure and not GDP (gross value added at market prices). The presented estimates are hence not fully equivalent to the estimates in the database on annual growth in GDP per capita, productivity and ULC for the total economy presented above, although differences are typically relatively small.
Historical versions of this dataset since 31 January 2011 are available.
