Hours worked and labour productivity in the provinces and territories, 2017
Revised data on provincial and territorial labour productivity and related measures from 1997 to 2017 are now available.
These revisions are consistent with those incorporated in the provincial and territorial economic accounts and the provincial and territorial gross domestic product (GDP) by industry, released on November 8, 2018. They are also consistent with those incorporated in the national GDP by industry, released on November 30, 2018. In addition, the year 2012 has been adopted as a reference year instead of 2007 for real GDP data and related series (including productivity and unit labour costs).
This release takes into account historical revisions to the Survey of Employment Payroll and Hours, released on March 28, 2018.
New data on hours worked and labour productivity in the provinces and territories for 2018 will be released on May 22, 2019.
Note to readers
Provincial and territorial measures of labour productivity and related variables are consistent with the concepts of the Canadian System of Macroeconomic Accounts and with the Input-Output Industry Codes.
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.
