This release contains a data cube which provides estimates of multifactor productivity (MFP) for individual industries in the Australian economy. The methodology for constructing the data is outlined in Chapter 19 of the Australian System of National Accounts, Concepts, Sources and Methods (cat. no. 5216.0). The ABS publishes industry level MFP estimates on an annual basis.

The data cube includes measures of input, output and MFP at the industry level from 1989-90 onwards for 12 industries, with the remaining market sector industries commencing in 1994-95. It goes beneath the aggregate economy to measure the productivity of individual industries.

The data cube also incorporates the updates to the 2012-13 edition of the Australian System of National Accounts (cat. no. 5204.0). It includes full historical revisions to industry chain volume value added, certain types of capital, and income, due to both updated source data and improved compilation methods.
