This figure presents annual data and uses gross domestic product (GDP) as opposed to gross value added (GVA) as the numerator. Furthermore, the OECD use non-seasonally adjusted (NSA) hours, whereas ONS use seasonally adjusted (SA) hours. NSA hours are different to SA hours primarily due to the non-working day adjustment in the seasonal adjustment process. Therefore, there may be slight differences between Figure 3 and the equivalent chart presented in the Labour productivity quarterly bulletin.
