Towards Improved and Comparable Productivity Statistics
A Set of Recommendations for Statistical Policy
This report, published in the 60th anniversary of the Asian Productivity Organization
(APO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), is the
first outcome of their collaboration to develop improved and more comparable productivity
statistics across APO and OECD member economies.
It explores current practices and challenges in productivity measurement and provides
recommendations to National Productivity Organisations (NPOs), National Statistics
Offices (NSOs), and other agencies involved in the compilation and analysis of productivity
statistics in APO member economies to improve measurement and cross-country comparability.
