KEY: R = revised.

a Based on the number of paid hours.

b The average weekly hours were assumed to be constant for Air transportation industries; therefore, the Output per hour worked and the Output per employee measures are identical.

b Full-time and part-time employees are counted equally. Hence, these data do not reflect output per full-time equivalent employee.

 

NOTES

Bureau of Labor Statistics developed labor productivity indexes for all manufacturing and retail trade of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industries as well as selected mining, transportation, communications and services industries.
