A new experimental industry productivity database is now available. The database provides, for the first time, a series for multifactor productivity output and inputs that include capital (K), labour (L), energy (E), materials (M) and purchased services (S) in the new North American Industry Classification system back to 1961. The Canadian Productivity Accounts has developed this KLEMS database using similar methods to backcast each series so that they would be consistent with the methods used by the System of National Accounts.

Available on CANSIM: tables 383-0021 to 383-0022.

Table 383-0021 provides a series for multifactor productivity, value-added, capital input and labour input in the aggregate business sector and major sub-sectors. Table 383-0022 provides series on multifactor productivity, gross output, value-added, capital, labour and intermediate inputs at a detailed industry level. For more information on the industry productivity database, consult the Canadian System of National Accounts module of our website.
