We are delaying publication of some of the productivity measures normally contained in this article to give further time to review and analyse a complex dataset. We will publish additional productivity estimates as soon as possible.



  • Unit labour costs: Revisions triangle

    Revisions triangles for unit labour costs, unit wage costs and unit wage costs in manufacturing.

  • Unit labour costs

    Unit labour costs (ULCs) reflect the full labour costs incurred in the production of a unit of economic output, including social security and employers’ pension contributions.

  • Public service productivity, quarterly

    Includes quarterly, annual and revisions tabs to see the picture for UK public service productivity and also to see how much has changed in the data.

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.
