Productivity of local government weakened in education and health care in 2010

The productivity of municipalities and joint municipal boards weakened in education and health care in 2010. In the previous year productivity improved slightly in both industries. This is indicated by Statistics Finland's Statistics on local government productivity. Productivity fell by one per cent in education and by close on one-and-a-half per cent in health care.

Volume changes in the output and total input and changes in total productivity of local government by industry in 2010, per cent from the year before

2010 Education Health
Output 0.4 1.0
Total input 1.5 2.4
Total productivity -1.0 -1.3

The volume of output in education grew by around half-a-per cent, but because the volume of total input went up by one-and-a-half per cent, productivity weakened. The volume of output in health care grew by one per cent and the volume of total input by 2.4 per cent, which led to a fall of 1.3 per cent in productivity.

Development in the total productivity of education, health and social work of local government in 2002–2010 (2002=100)

Development in the total productivity of education, health and social work of local government in 2002–2010 (2002=100)

Data concerning 2009 and 2010 on the development of productivity in social work cannot be published at the moment. For this reason data are not published on productivity at the education, health care and social work total level either. The ongoing changes in the structure of services in the municipal sector are strongly reflected in the development of costs in social work. The data in the source statistics do not facilitate sufficiently detailed treatment of these changes in national accounts to allow productivity calculations.

The statistics on local government productivity are compiled at the level of the whole country and the data are not available by municipality or joint municipal board. The statistics are based direct on data on the local government sector in national accounts data.
