Development of productivity in the national economy in 1976 to 2015
30 Nov 2016
Productivity surveys that are based on volume change in the value added calculate the changes in total productivity and labour productivity in the national economy. Labour productivity consists of capital intensity, the contribution of labour composition and total productivity. Total productivity in turn is generated when the contributions of labour composition and capital input are subtracted from the value added. In connection with this years publication, the contributions of various components of the capital inputs are reported in addition to the data from previous years. The contributions have been separately calculated for ICT and RD assets, machinery and equipment, residential buildings and other capital resources. The data can be found in Statistic Finland's database tables.

Description: A distinctive feature of Finnish economic growth, especially since the Second World War, has been the major significance of growth in productivity. Change in productivity is the part of growth in output that is not explained by change in the use of input(s) or compensation of inputs. Growth in total productivity depicts not only technological development and increased efficiency but also the effects from improved quality of inputs, management, logistics and organisation.
