After doing so, and taking into account alternative assumptions about Canada/U.S. prices, the paper provides point estimates of Canada's relative labour productivity of the total economy of around 93% that of the United States.

The paper points out that at least a 10 percentage point confidence interval should be applied to these estimates. Big Picture: The core of Statcan’s study simplistically and rather unhelpfully applies U.S. levels of productivity to Canada’s small- and big-business employment structure.

It is kind of like Author: Ted Mallett. For example, if U.S. productivity were to grow by per cent per year (its most recent five-year annual growth rate), Canada’s productivity growth would have to be over twice as fast— per cent per year—over the next 15 years to eventually match the U.S.

The discussion focuses on comparisons of labour productivity at the economy-wide level; the estimation of productivity levels for individual industries raises additional measurement issues that go beyond the scope of this paper Considering as a whole, labour productivity of Canadian businesses rose percent, after falling percent in Real GDP of businesses grew percent (vs percent in ) and hours worked advanced percent (vs percent in ).

The study concludes that, in the late s, Canada's multifactor productivity performance compared favourably to the U.S., information technology user industries contributed to a large extent to Canada's productivity revival and Canada's standard of living improved significantly primarily because of the increase in the labour utilization rate.
