Labour productivity index calculated as follows: PL=VA/L where, PL – labour productivity; VA – Gross Value Added (GVA), L – labour input. Gross Value Added shows real GDP (GVA) growth as a percentage of the previous year and baseline year. Labour input is calculated based «Employment and unemployment» module data of the integrated household and labour force sample survey and represents the growth rate of employed population. Calculations are also made by economic activity.
