Labour Productivity Measures from the ABS: 1998 to 2009
AbstractThis article compares micro and macro measures of productivity. Detailed industry-level productivity estimates are key to understanding how the aggregate economy is driven by the performance of particular sectors, and also how certain sectors perform relative to others. A detailed focus is all the more important in the aftermath of the UK's deepest recession since the 1930s. This article aims to aid the analysis of the economy over the recession and comment on which specific industries saw the biggest changes. The article updates the work of Long (2010) by adding two additional years of data from the Annual Business Survey (ABS), 2008 and 2009.
