Provincial and territorial data for 2015 on labour productivity and its related variables for the business sector by industry are now available.
These data are consistent with those incorporated in the provincial and territorial gross domestic product by industry for 2015, released on May 12, 2016. No revisions have been made to data for previous years. Revised estimates on hours worked and labour productivity in the provinces and territories for 2013 and 2014 will be published in November 2016.
Note to readers
Provincial and territorial measures of labour productivity and related variables are consistent with the concepts of the System of National Accounts and with the 2007 input-output industry coding.
It is important to note that real output (used to measure productivity) is based on the value added measured at basic prices, not market prices, which is consistent with the detailed framework by industry. As well, the real estate, rental and leasing industry, part of the service-producing business sector, excludes the imputed rent for owner-occupied dwellings as there are no data on the number of hours that homeowners spend on dwelling maintenance services.
