    Sensitivity of capital and MFP measurement to asset depreciation patterns and initial capital stock estimates

    This paper discusses the sensitivity of capital and multifactor productivity (MFP) measurement to asset depreciation patterns and initial capital stock estimates. Applying the same depreciation rates in the US as in other G7 countries would reduce the US net investment rate and net capital stock by up to one third and increase US GDP by up to 0.5%. Capital and MFP growth would be less affected. Estimating initial capital stocks often involves assuming constant investment growth, but this leads to unreliable results. Relying on average K/Y ratios across countries works well for the US, but this might not be the case for other countries due to the international dispersion in K/Y ratios. Two main recommendations for statistical agencies emerge from this analysis. First, they should regularly review asset depreciation patterns to ensure that measured differences across countries are well justified. Second, they should backcast investment series as much as possible before relying on stationarity assumptions to estimate initial capital stocks.

    Methods note: Producing OECD quarterly air emission accounts

    Our estimates track emissions of CO2 and other GHGs that are released into the atmosphere. They are compiled for the Air Emissions Accounts (AEAs) of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA). We use the SEEA approach because it is consistent with international standards for compiling the national accounts, which makes it easier to monitor the impact of the economy on the environment.

    Why do deflators matter when looking at growth and economic well-being?

    Our news release on economic growth and well-being in the second quarter of 2022 showed real Household Disposable Income (HDI) per capita in the OECD declining by 0.5% while real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita rose by 0.3%. The decrease in real HDI per capita was partly due to high inflation: increases in consumer prices were undermining household income in real terms.
