Measuring Productivity in the System of National Accounts
The paper reviews some of the measurement problems that are associated with measuring sectoral Total Factor Productivity growth rates. The paper notes that the production accounts in the present System of National Accounts (SNA) need to be extended somewhat in order to be suitable as a data base for measuring sectoral productivity growth rates. In particular, the treatment of exports, imports and indirect taxes is not completely adequate for productivity measurement purposes in the present SNA. Finally, the paper considers some of the problems that are associated with the measurement of banking sector outputs and the System of National Accounts FISIM (Financial Intermediation Services Indirectly Measured) imputations.
