GDP in the UK

Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that UK productivity measured as gross domestic product (GDP) per worker is higher than Japan, lower than France and the US and similar to Germany.

The ONS usually publishes comparisons made on the basis of GDP per worker. But the new data comparing the GDP per hour worked shows that although there are some differences in productive output, the relative position of each country in relation to the UK remains the same.

However, on the basis of GDP per hour worked, both France and Japan move further away from the centre as the most extreme examples of high and low productivity.
