Productivity Statistics

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: The revision of labor productivity index of different products in non-manufacturing industries and annual revision of part of those indices >   (2017.7.3)
· Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy revised the contents of Statistical Survey on Trends in Gas Production. So we also revised the labor productivity index of Gas in labor productivity indices of different products in non-manufacturing industries.
· According to the annual revision of Indices of Industrial Production released by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, we revised the labor productivity indices of different sectors in Manufacturing(facilities with 30 or more employees) since January 2016.

Brief Summary

Productivity Statistics



Labor productivity index of Manufacturing was 93.8 (2010=100). The growth rate was up 5.0% from the same month the year before.It was the sixth consecutive positive month. In constrast, Labor productivity index of Service Industry (the entire service industries) was 91.4 (2010=100). Its growth rate (-0.3%) fell into negative territory.
A look at labor productivity indices by industry (Mining and Manufacturing) shows that the labor productivity growth rate went up in the 13 of the 22 industries compared with the same month last year, for example, Electrical Parts & Devices (+16.1%), Transport equipment(+11.8%), and General-purpose Machinery (+11.1%). Labor productivity's growth of Electrical Parts & Devices had exceeded +10% for three months mainly because of expansion of producstion of electrical parts.
A look at labor productivity indices by industry (non-manufacturing) shows that the labor productivity growth rate went up in 7, such as Electricity, gas, heat supply and water(+5.5%),Goods Rental & Leasing (+5.2%),and Accommodations (+4.5%), of the 15 industries compared with the same month last year. Labor productivity's growth of Accommodations was first upturn in 1 year and 4 months since December 2015.
