Integrated BEA GDP-BLS Productivity Account

To provide a better understanding of the sources of economic growth, BEA and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) collaborated to create this integrated production account. The account combines BEA's gross domestic product statistics with BLS's productivity statistics.

The BEA estimates in this account were updated in December 2022 to incorporate the results of the 2022 annual update of the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPAs) and Industry Economic Accounts (IEAs), released on September 29, 2022.

The BLS estimates in this account reflect Total Factor Productivity Trends for Major Industries, released March 23, 2023.
