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 collaborated to create this integrated production account that combines BEA's gross domestic product statistics with BLS' productivity statistics.

The BEA estimates in this account were updated to incorporate the results of the 2020 annual update of the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPAs) and the annual update of the industry economic accounts.

Estimates from the BLS multifactor productivity accounts reflect BLS estimates released in November 2020.
