ESTIMATES OF INDUSTRY MULTIFACTOR PRODUCTIVITY (CAT. NO. 5260.0.55.002) AND ESTIMATES OF INDUSTRY LEVEL KLEMS MULTIFACTOR PRODUCTIVITY (CAT. NO. 5260.0.55.004)
The 2016-17 issues of Estimates of Industry Multifactor Productivity and Experimental Estimates of Industry Level KLEMS Multifactor Productivity will be released on 24 January 2018. Estimates of Industry Multifactor Productivity provides updated estimates of multifactor productivity (MFP) for the 16 industries defined to comprise the market sector, and two aggregates: 12 selected industries and 16 market sector industries. Also included are productivity growth cycles for market sector industries and selected industries aggregates back to 1998-99 and 1973-74, respectively. The statistical release includes experimental estimates of sources of aggregate labour productivity growth and its industry origin. The release includes the experimental industry productivity growth cycles, where estimates of growth cycles for individual industries are provided. The 2016-17 release also introduces experimental estimates of state productivity back to 1994-95.
Since 2016, the ABS has published Experimental Estimates of Industry Level KLEMS Multifactor Productivity for the 16 market sector industries. The term KLEMS represents the five input categories - Capital (K), Labour (L), Energy (E), Materials (M) and Services (S). By explicitly identifying the role of intermediate inputs in the production process, KLEMS facilitates a more rigorous analysis of the determinants of output growth at the industry level.
