Productivity Statistics

Japan Productivity Center has been publishing labor productivity statistics (tangible labor productivity index) of mining & industry and major industrial sectors on monthly, quarterly or annual basis since 1958 to measure efficiency of different sectors.

< Note: Revision of Labor Productivity Statistics (Annual Revision) >   (2017.4.28)
· Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry had revised "Indices of Industrial Production", "Indices of Tertiary Industry Activity" and "Indices of All Industry Activity" (annual revision). So we revised labor productivity indices and output indices on manufacturing and non-manufacturing since January 2016.
