Presents experimental data for the above for the UK and for a broad six-industry breakdownEstimates of quality-adjusted labour input are improved measures of labourÂ’s input to production and are therefore more suitable for analysing and modelling productivity than standard volume measures of hours or workers. The estimates incorporate both the quantity and quality components of hours worked. This article presents experimental quality-adjusted labour input estimates for 1996 to 2006 for the UK and for a broad six-industry breakdown. Recent development work has also allowed quality-adjusted labour input estimates to be published for the market sector.
