Le present document fournit un apercu du programme de la productivite de Statistique Canada et une breve description du rendement du Canada en matiere de productivite. Il definit la productivite et les diverses mesures utilisees pour examiner les differentes facettes de la croissance de la productivite. Il decrit la difference entre des mesures de productivite partielles (par exemple, la productivite du travail) et une mesure plus complete (productivite multifactorielle) ainsi que les avantages et desavantages de chacune de ces mesures. Le document explique pourquoi la productivite est importante. Il decrit sommairement comment la croissance de la productivite s'integre dans le cadre comptable de la croissance et comment on utilise ce dernier pour examiner les diverses sources de croissance economique. Il presente brievement les defis que les statisticiens doivent relever lorsqu'ils mesurent la croissance de la productivite. Il fournit egalement un survol de la productivite a long terme du Canada et compare celle-ci a celle des Etats-Unis, selon les niveaux de productivite et selon les taux de croissance de la productivite.
