Growth and Productivity Statistics (WPS)

The growth and productivity statistics (WPS) is a set of indicators for statistical analysis in the fields of macroeconomics. Based on the reference framework of the National Accounts, these indicators contribute to various measures and analyses of the performance of the Swiss economy, its competitiveness and Switzerland's evolution towards an increasingly globalised and knowledge-based society.
One of the objectives of these analyses is to shed light on the role and impact of the factors of production (labour and capital) on the growth of Gross domestic product (GDP).
