Productivity Handbook Glossary


Many of the terms used in the ONS Productivity Handbook are specific to productivity theory, labour market statistics or National Accounts terminology.

These include, for example, 'capital deepening' and 'double deflation'.

Others are specific to the Office for National Statistics or government in general, such as abbreviations for the different governments departments.

This section provides a listing of these terms and, where they have an abbreviated form, includes this as well as the long form.

The glossary is presented in alphabetical order to assist readers dealing with unfamiliar words.
