Labour productivity growth in the OECD, GDP per hour worked, percentage rate at annual rate

29/04/2019 - Employment is rising in OECD countries but most jobs continue to be created in relatively low-productivity, low-wage activities, says a new OECD report.

The latest Compendium of Productivity Indicators says the trend has compounded the impact of generally weak business investment on productivity growth.
