Productivity by the numbers
27 May 2021Downloads
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.
