The OECD Productivity Database aims at providing users with the most comprehensive and the latest productivity estimates.
The update cycle is on a rolling basis, i.e. each variable in the dataset is made publicly available as soon as it is updated in the sources databases. However, timely data issues may arise and affect individual series and/or countries. In particular, annual hours worked estimates from the OECD Employment Outlook are typically updated less frequently (once a year, in the summer) than series of hours worked from the OECD Annual National Accounts.

The current version of the OECD Productivity Database accounts for the new changes which have recently occurred in the OECD National Accounts. For further details on methodological changes in OECD Annual National Accounts, go to the following link.
