Labour productivity of information industries relative to other non-agriculture business sector activities. This indicator provides a measure of the relative impact of information industries which are at the heart of the digital economy.
Labour productivity is the amount of value added generated per unit of labour input (number of persons employed or, when data allow, the number of hours worked).
Information industries include manufacturers of ICT equipment, providers of ICT services and the “content and media sector”. They are approximated, due to the limited availability of more detailed data, by “Computer, electronic and optical products”, “Publishing, audiovisual, and broadcasting activities”, “Telecommunications”, and “IT and other information services” (see notes).
