                        PRODUCTIVITY AND COSTS
        Fourth Quarter and Annual Averages 2010, Revised

Nonfarm business sector labor productivity increased at a 2.6 percent 
annual rate during the fourth quarter of 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Labor 
Statistics reported today. The gain in productivity reflects a 4.0 percent 
increase in output and a 1.4 percent increase in hours worked.  (All 
quarterly percent changes in this release are seasonally adjusted annual 
rates.) From the fourth quarter of 2009 to the fourth quarter of 2010, 
productivity increased 1.9 percent as output rose faster than hours (table 
A). Annual average productivity increased 3.9 percent from 2009 to 2010 
(table C).

Labor productivity, or output per hour, is calculated by dividing an index 
of real output by an index of hours of all persons, including employees, 
proprietors, and unpaid family workers. The measures released today were 
based on more recent source data than were available for the preliminary 
report.

Unit labor costs in nonfarm businesses fell 0.6 percent in the fourth 
quarter of 2010, due to productivity increasing faster than hourly 
compensation. Unit labor costs edged down 0.1 percent from the same 
quarter a year ago (table A). The annual average index of unit labor costs 
declined 1.5 percent from 2009 to 2010 (table C).

BLS defines unit labor costs as the ratio of hourly compensation to labor 
productivity; increases in hourly compensation tend to increase unit labor 
costs and increases in output per hour tend to reduce them. 


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Data in this release reflect the annual benchmark revision of BLS Current 
Employment Statistics program data on nonfarm employee hours, and revised 
seasonal adjustment of those data. More detail can be found in tables 1 
through 6 and appendix tables 1 through 6. See Revised measures.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Manufacturing sector productivity rose 5.9 percent in the fourth quarter 
of 2010, as output increased 4.4 percent and hours decreased 1.4 percent. 
Over the last four quarters, manufacturing productivity increased 4.2 
percent as output increased faster than hours worked (table A). Unit labor 
costs in manufacturing declined at a 2.7 percent annual rate in the fourth 
quarter of 2010 and decreased by 2.7 percent over the last four quarters 
(table A). Annual average productivity grew 6.7 percent from 2009 to 2010 
(table C).

The data sources and methods used in the preparation of the manufacturing 
output series differ from those used in preparing the business and nonfarm 
business output series, and these measures are not directly comparable.  
See Technical Notes for further information on data sources. 


Revised measures

Quarterly and annual measures for all sectors were revised back to 2006 to 
incorporate the annual benchmark adjustment and updated information on 
seasonal trends from the BLS nonfarm payroll series. Revised and previous 
measures for the third and fourth quarters of 2010 are shown in table B 
for the business, nonfarm business and manufacturing sectors. Revised 
third quarter measures for the nonfinancial corporate sector are shown in 
table D. Quarterly and annual data for all sectors appear in tables 1-6 
for 2008 through 2010, and in appendix tables 1-6 for 2006 and 2007. Full 
historical annual and quarterly measures can be found on the labor 
productivity and costs home page http://www.bls.gov/lpc/#data.

In the fourth quarter of 2010, changes in nonfarm business productivity 
and unit labor costs were unrevised; underlying output and hours growth 
were both revised downward. In manufacturing, productivity was revised up 
to 5.9 percent reflecting an upward revision to output and a smaller 
decline in hours than previously reported (table B).

In the third quarter of 2010, nonfarm business productivity growth was 
revised down to 2.3 percent; unit labor costs rose 0.1 percent rather than 
declining 0.1 percent as reported February 3. In manufacturing, 
productivity growth was revised down slightly to 1.3 percent. An upward 
revision in unit labor costs to 1.1 percent was due primarily to an upward 
revision to hourly compensation (table B). In the nonfinancial corporate 
sector productivity fell less than previously reported, the result of an 
upward revision in output (table D). 

Annual Average measures of hours, hourly compensation, and productivity 
were revised for 2009 and 2010, as a result of the benchmark adjustment 
(table C). Downward revisions to hours in nonfarm business and 
manufacturing in both years contributed to annual productivity growth of 
3.9 percent and 6.7 percent respectively for 2010, and 3.7 percent and 2.4 
percent for 2009.

			TECHNICAL NOTES
			
			
Labor Hours: Hours data for the labor productivity and cost measures 
include hours for all persons working in the sector--wage and salary 
workers, the self-employed and unpaid family workers. The primary source 
of hours and employment data is the BLS Current Employment Statistics 
(CES) program, which provides monthly survey data on the number of jobs 
held by wage and salary workers in nonfarm establishments. The CES also 
provides average weekly paid hours of production and nonsupervisory 
workers in these establishments. Weekly paid hours are adjusted to hours 
at work using data from the National Compensation Survey (NCS). The BLS 
Hours at Work survey, conducted for this purpose, was used for earlier 
years. The Office of Productivity and Technology estimates average weekly 
hours at work for nonproduction and supervisory workers using information 
from the Current Population Survey (CPS), the CES, and the NCS.
     Data from the CPS are used for farm labor, nonfarm proprietors, and 
nonfarm unpaid family workers. Estimates of labor input for government 
enterprises are derived from the CPS, the CES, and the National Income and 
Product Accounts (NIPA) prepared by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) 
of the Department of Commerce.
     The CES measures jobs, counting a person who is employed by two or 
more establishments at each place of employment. In contrast, the CPS 
features measures of employment that count each person only once and 
classify each person according to his or her primary job; hours worked at 
all jobs by that person accrue to his or her primary job. However, the CPS 
also collects more detailed information on employment and hours worked at 
primary jobs and all other jobs, separately. The BLS productivity measures 
use the more detailed information on employment and hours to assign all 
hours worked to the correct industrial sector and avoid duplicating hours 
data from the CES.

Output: Business sector output is a chain-type, current-weighted index 
constructed after excluding from gross domestic product (GDP) the 
following outputs: general government, nonprofit institutions, and private 
households (including owner-occupied housing). Corresponding exclusions 
also are made in labor inputs. Business output accounted for about 75 
percent of the value of GDP in 2009. Nonfarm business, which excludes 
farming, accounted for about 74 percent of GDP in 2009.
     Annual indexes for manufacturing and its durable and nondurable goods 
components are constructed by deflating current-dollar industry value of 
production data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census with deflators from the 
BLS. These deflators are based on data from the BLS producer price program 
and other sources. The industry shipments are aggregated using annual 
weights, and intrasector transactions are removed. Quarterly manufacturing 
output measures are based on the index of industrial production prepared 
monthly by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, adjusted 
to be consistent with annual indexes of manufacturing sector output 
prepared by BLS. Durables include the following 3-digit NAICS industries: 
wood product manufacturing; nonmetallic mineral product manufacturing; 
primary metal manufacturing; fabricated metal product manufacturing; 
machinery manufacturing; computer and electronic product manufacturing; 
electrical equipment and appliance manufacturing; transportation equipment 
manufacturing; furniture and related product manufacturing; and 
miscellaneous manufacturing. Nondurables include: food manufacturing; 
beverage and tobacco product manufacturing; textile mills; textile product 
mills; apparel manufacturing; leather and allied product manufacturing; 
paper manufacturing; printing and related support activities; petroleum 
and coal products manufacturing; chemical manufacturing; and plastics and 
rubber products manufacturing.
     Nonfinancial corporate output is a chain-type, current-weighted index 
calculated on the basis of the costs incurred and the incomes earned from 
production.  The output measure excludes the following outputs from GDP: 
general government; nonprofit institutions; private households; 
unincorporated business; and those corporations classified as offices of 
bank holding companies, offices of other holding companies, or offices in 
the finance and insurance sector. Nonfinancial corporations accounted for 
about 47 percent of the value of GDP in 2009.
     
Productivity: These productivity measures describe the relationship 
between real output and the labor time involved in its production. They 
show the changes from period to period in the amount of goods and services 
produced per hour. Although these measures relate output to hours at work 
of all persons engaged in a sector, they do not measure the specific 
contribution of labor, capital, or any other factor of production. Rather, 
they reflect the joint effects of many influences, including changes in 
technology; capital investment; level of output; utilization of capacity, 
energy, and materials; the organization of production; managerial skill; 
and the characteristics and effort of the work force.

Labor Compensation: The measure includes accrued wages and salaries, 
supplements, employer contributions to employee benefit plans, and taxes. 
Estimates of labor compensation by major sector, required for measures of 
hourly compensation and unit labor costs, are based primarily on employee 
compensation data from the NIPA, prepared by the BEA. The compensation of 
employees in general government, nonprofit institutions and private 
households are subtracted from compensation of domestic employees to 
derive employee compensation for the business sector. The labor 
compensation of proprietors cannot be explicitly identified and must be 
estimated. This is done by assuming that proprietors have the same hourly 
compensation as employees in the same sector. The quarterly labor 
productivity and cost measures do not contain estimates of compensation 
for unpaid family workers.  
      
Unit Labor Costs: The measures of unit labor costs in this release 
describe the relationship between compensation per hour and productivity, 
or real output per hour, and can be used as an indicator of inflationary 
pressure on producers. Increases in hourly compensation increase unit 
labor costs; labor productivity increases offset compensation increases 
and lower unit labor costs. 

Presentation of the data: The quarterly data in this release are presented 
in three ways: as percent changes from the previous quarter presented at a 
compound annual rate, as percent changes from the corresponding quarter of 
the previous year, and as index number series where 2005=100. Annual data 
are presented both as index number series and percent changes from the 
previous year.  
	The index numbers and rates of change reported in the productivity 
and costs news release are rounded to one decimal place. All percent 
changes in this release and on the BLS web site are calculated using index 
numbers to three decimal places. These index numbers are available at the 
BLS web site, www.bls.gov/data/home.htm, or by contacting the BLS Division 
of Major Sector Productivity. (Telephone 202-691-5606 or email

SOURCES:  Output data are from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the 
Census Bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce; the Bureau of Labor 
Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor; and the Federal Reserve Board.  
Compensation and hours data are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and 
the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

RELIABILITY:  Productivity and cost measures are regularly revised as 
more complete information becomes available.  The measures are first 
published within 40 days of the close of the reference period; revisions 
appear 30 days later, and second revisions after an additional 60 days.  
In the business sector, the third publication (second revision) of a 
quarterly index of output per hour of all persons has differed from the 
initial value by between -1.7 and +1.5 index points approximately 95 
percent of the time.  This interval is based on the performance of this 
measure between the fourth quarter of 1995 and the third quarter of 2010.

(1)  Wages and salaries of employees plus employers' contributions for 
social insurance and private benefit plans. Except for nonfinancial 
corporations, where there are no self-employed, data also include an 
estimate of wages, salaries, and supplemental payments for the self-
employed.

(2)  The change for recent quarters is based on the Consumer Price Index 
for all urban consumers (CPI-U). The trend from 1978-2009 is based on the
Consumer Price Index research series (CPI-U-RS).

(3)  Unit nonlabor payments include profits, consumption of fixed 
capital, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, net interest and 
miscellaneous payments, business current transfer payments, rental income 
of persons, and the current surplus of government enterprises.

(4)  Current dollar output divided by the output index.

(5)  Quarterly changes: Percent change compounded at annual rate is 
calculated using index numbers to three decimal places. Indexes published 
in the news release are rounded to one decimal place for convenience. 
Annual changes: Percent change is calculated using annual average indexes 
to three decimal places.

(6)  Unit nonlabor costs include consumption of fixed capital, taxes on 
production and imports less subsidies, net interest and miscellaneous 
payments, and business current transfer payments.

(7)  Total unit costs are the sum of unit labor and nonlabor costs.

(8)  Unit profits include corporate profits before tax with inventory 
valuation and capital consumption adjustments.
