Correction 30 May 2012

In the initial publication of the article at 9.30am on 30 May 2012, presentation Table 2 was incorrect.

Also a production error meant that two columns of data in the reference table started at the wrong quarter.

ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused.

Quality-adjusted labour input (QALI) is a measure of labour input to economic production which takes account of the composition of the workforce as well as the volume of hours worked. It provides a broader perspective in assessing productivity performance than other labour measures, which focus only on the quantity of labour input. The results are used in multi-factor productivity analysis.
