Labour productivity up 1.3% over the year
An Official Statistics publication for Scotland.
Scotland’s labour productivity has increased by 1.3% during the second quarter of 2019 compared to the same quarter in the previous year, according to statistics announced today by the Chief Statistician.
Compared to the previous three months, labour productivity is estimated to have grown by 0.2% during April to June 2019.
The statistical publication and data are available online, alongside a visual summary of the key findings.
Labour productivity is an important indicator of economic performance and measures the amount of economic output that is produced, on average, by each unit of labour input.
All headline results focus on the change in output per hour worked and are presented in real terms, i.e. where the effect of price changes has been removed to allow for meaningful comparisons over time. Estimates in this publication relate to Scotland’s onshore economy, which means it does not include the output of offshore oil and gas extraction.
Full results, including estimates of output per job, current price productivity measures (not adjusted for price changes) and experimental estimates of labour productivity by industry are also available.
