Productivity measurement case study: Early childhood education
1 November 2017
This note looks at options for measuring productivity in early childhood education (ECE). Drawing off the work of Gemmell et al (2017), it
- uses publicly-available information to construct measures of productivity in the ECE sector; and
- discusses options for quality-adjusting ECE outputs to provide a more accurate and complete picture of changes in early childhood productivity.
This paper was prepared for the Commission's inquiry into state sector productivity inquiry.
