Productivity

Data Sources

The table below lists the data sources that are used in the estimation of the levels measures for the Office of Productivity and Technology (OPT) including output, hours worked, and compensation. These levels measures are used to calculate the Productivity and Costs measures including labor productivity, unit labor costs, and real hourly compensation; these productivity and costs calculations are described in the BLS Handbook of Methods.

The table is organized by news release in this order: Labor Productivity and Costs (Major Sector and Industries), Total Factor Productivity (Major Sector, Major Industries, and Detailed Industries), and State Productivity.

The table is sortable by header and is searchable by word or phrase. Acronyms used: Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), Federal Reserve Bank (FRB), Energy Information Administration (EIA), Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Agriculture (USDA), Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
