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 0.7% from Quarter 3 (July to Sept) 2017 to Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2017; this is the second quarter in a row that output per hour grew, after falling in the first half of 2017.
By contrast, output per worker and output per job both grew by 0.1% between the third and fourth quarter; the difference between these two measures and output per hour reflects a fall in average hours per job and per worker.
Labour productivity grew in both services and manufacturing industries; services productivity grew by 0.3% on the previous quarter and manufacturing productivity grew by 2.6%.
