Multifactor Productivity

Multifactor Productivity (MFP) relates output to a combined set of inputs. Two BLS programs produce Multifactor Productivity measures for sectors of the U.S. economy.

The Major Sector Productivity program publishes annual measures of output per unit of combined inputs for the private business, private nonfarm business, and manufacturing sectors and for 18 NAICS 3-digit manufacturing industries.

The Industry Productivity program publishes annual measures of output per unit of combined inputs for 86 4-digit NAICS manufacturing industries, the air transportation industry, and the line-haul railroad industry.
