Economic productivity measures, including output per hour, output per job and output per worker for the whole economy and a range of industries; productivity in the public sector; and international comparisons of productivity across the G7 nations.
UK labour productivity, as measured by output per hour, is estimated to have grown by 0.4% from Quarter 3 (July to Sept) 2016 to Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2016; however, over a longer time-period, labour productivity growth has been lower on average than prior to the downturn.
Productivity grew in both services and manufacturing industries; services productivity grew by 0.8% on the previous quarter, while manufacturing productivity grew by 1.7% on the previous quarter.
Earnings and other labour costs growth outpaced productivity growth, resulting in unit labour cost (ULC) growth of 2.1% in the year to Quarter 4 2016.
The article provides statistics for several measures of labour productivity (GVA per hour worked, GVA per filled job). Statistics are provided for the NUTS1, NUTS2 and NUTS3 subregions of the UK, and for selected UK City Regions.
