GROWTH IN MFP

Value added based MFP

Periods of five years have been chosen to present the results in table 2.1. Table 2.1 shows that between 1985-86 and 2005-06 the industries with strongest growth in MFP were the Communication services and Agriculture, forestry & fishing industries. Finance & insurance also had high growth, particularly up until 2000-01. Other industries with MFP growth faster than the market sector over the last twenty years were Transport & storage, Wholesale trade and Electricity, gas & water. Cultural & recreational services had the weakest MFP growth.


Mining, Electricity, gas & water and Finance & insurance industries showed relatively strong MFP growth over the early periods with growth slowing in later periods. Construction and Accommodation, cafes & restaurants had stronger MFP growth between 2000-01 and 2005-06 compared to earlier periods.
