Productivity by the numbers: 2021

The Productivity by the numbers publication includes key productivity concepts and measures. It looks at New Zealand’s productivity trends, both the latest statistics and longer-run productivity performance, and what can be done to lift New Zealand's productivity.

Productivity matters for wellbeing. Achieving higher productivity – producing more with what we have (people, knowledge, skills, produced capital, and natural resources) – means there is more to go around for current and future generations.

We hope this publication will be a useful resource to participate in discussions around what we need to do to lift New Zealand's productivity.
