Calculations for the statistics on central government productivity are performed with data on pairs of years by comparing the volumes of outputs and inputs for the services of a respondent unit in two successive years. Units removed from the central government sector and newly established units without comparison data from the preceding year are excluded from the comparison. The agencies and institutions included in the measurement vary slightly from one year and administrative sector to the next depending on the quantity and quality of the obtained responses.
