UK productivity: April to June 2019: Labour productivity by industry and related material.

1.    Labour productivity, UK: April to June 2019
2.    Multi-Factor productivity estimates: Experimental estimates April to June 2019
3.    Public Service productivity estimates: quarterly, UK, April to June 2019 (Experimental estimates)

Following extensive improvements introduced into the national accounts as part of Blue Book 2019, further time is needed to quality assure some of the upcoming productivity statistics.

To ensure both the quality of the outputs and to provide a full explanation of any revisions, we have made the decision to delay publication of Unit labour costs and the Productivity economic commentary.

These will be published on 20 November 2019. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.



The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs
  • are well explained and readily accessible
  • are produced according to sound methods
  • are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest

Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
