Multifactor Productivity Application

Consultation objectives

Multi factor productivity program estimates are derived by integrating multiple data sources with economic theory, and use aggregation formulas for specific variables. Prior to use, the estimates typically require some form of manipulation for which the degree of knowledge required is not necessary for analyzing the data.

The tool for productivity analysis facilitates the use of multi factor productivity estimates by codifying the necessary knowledge that is commonly used for examining productivity data.

As part of on-going efforts to improve the utility and access to the multi factor productivity program, Statistics Canada is opening a dialogue with users about this new tool. As part of this initiative, a consultation is being held to seek feedback on the tool's usability, and to make sure it meets user needs.
