At the beginning of the year 2012, GDP per hour worked was significantly revised for a large number of OECD countries. Revisions are mainly due to the implementation of the classification NACE Rev.2 by European countries into their national accounts, the change of reference year in some OECD member countries, along with the possible implementation of other methodological changes. These changes can impact on output and/or labour input at the whole economy level.

Level of GDP per Capita and ProductivityAbstract

Estimates of productivity levels and GDP per capita permit the comparison of standards of living and underlying factors across countries.

The OECD Compendium of Productivity Indicators provides a comprehensive overview of recent and more longer terms trends in productivity levels and growth in OECD countries.
The most recent issue of the Compendium, as well as a large range of additional information regarding the methodologies used in the OECD Productivity and ULC Databases, are available on the OECD productivity internet page:
