			 PRODUCTIVITY AND COSTS
		      Third Quarter 2010, Revised


Nonfarm business sector labor productivity increased at a 2.3 percent annual
rate during the third quarter of 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
reported today. Labor productivity is calculated by dividing an index of real
output by an index of the combined hours worked of all persons, including 
employees, proprietors, and unpaid family workers. Output increased 3.7
percent and hours worked increased 1.4 percent in the third quarter. (All 
quarterly percent changes in this release are seasonally adjusted annual 
rates.) Nonfarm business productivity increased 2.5 percent from the third 
quarter of 2009 to the third quarter of 2010, as output increased 4.3 percent
and hours worked rose 1.7 percent (tables A and 2).

The productivity measures released today are based on more recent and more 
complete data than were available for the preliminary report issued last month
(see Revised measures).
        
Unit labor costs in nonfarm businesses decreased 0.1 percent in the third 
quarter of 2010, because productivity grew 2.3 percent while hourly 
compensation increased 2.2 percent.  Over the last four quarters, unit labor
costs declined 1.1 percent (tables A and 2). BLS defines unit labor costs as
the ratio of hourly compensation to labor productivity; increases in hourly
compensation tend to increase unit labor costs and increases in output per
hour tend to reduce them.

Business sector productivity increased 2.5 percent in the third quarter of 
2010, as output increased 3.7 percent and hours increased 1.2 percent. Over
the last four quarters, business sector productivity increased 2.6 percent.

Manufacturing sector productivity rose 0.6 percent in the third quarter of 
2010, as output and hours grew 4.2 percent and 3.6 percent, respectively. 
In the durable manufacturing subsector, output per hour declined 0.5 
percent as output grew 6.0 percent but hours grew faster, 6.5 percent.  In 
nondurable goods industries productivity increased 3.2 percent, due both 
to an increase in output and a decline in hours.  Over the last four 
quarters, total manufacturing productivity increased 4.0 percent as output 
rose 7.1 percent and hours increased 3.0 percent (tables A and 3).  
Manufacturing unit labor costs increased 1.0 percent in the third quarter of
2010, but fell 2.9 percent over the last four quarters. 

The data sources and methods used in the preparation of the manufacturing 
output series differ from those used in preparing the business and nonfarm 
business output series, and these measures are not directly comparable. 
See Technical Notes for more information on data sources. 

Preliminary third-quarter 2010 data for the nonfinancial corporate sector 
also were released today.  Output per hour fell 2.4 percent as output 
declined 0.2 percent and hours rose 2.3 percent.  


Revised measures


Measures for the second and third quarters of 2010 for all sectors reflect 
normal updates of source data including output, employment, and hours. 
Additionally, manufacturing productivity, output, and unit labor costs series
were revised back to 1987 to reflect revised output indexes constructed by BLS
using data from the U.S. Department of Commerce.  Table B presents  previous
and revised productivity and related measures for the major sectors: business,
nonfarm business and manufacturing, for the third and second quarters of 2010.
Revised annual indexes for the manufacturing sectors appear in appendix 
tables 1-3.  Full historical annual and quarterly measures can be found on the
labor productivity and costs home page http://www.bls.gov/lpc/#data.  

In the nonfarm business sector, third quarter productivity growth was revised
up to 2.3 percent from a previous estimate of 1.9 percent, because the upward
revision to output was greater than the upward revision to hours.  Nonfarm
business productivity in the second quarter was not revised.  Unit labor costs
declined by the same amount in the third quarter as previously reported, 0.1
percent. However, second quarter unit labor costs were revised up 
substantially due to an upward revision to hourly compensation.

In the manufacturing sector, slight upward revisions to output resulted in 
similar upward revisions to productivity in both the third and second 
quarters of 2010.  Upward revisions to hourly compensation affected unit labor
costs. Third quarter unit labor costs increased 1.0 percent rather than 
declining 0.3 percent.  Second quarter unit labor costs were revised to -0.7
percent from the preliminary estimate of -6.4 percent reported on November 4.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics is conducting a customer survey to solicit 
suggestions from the public to enhance the quality and relevance of BLS 
productivity data and publications. The survey is available at 
www.bls.gov/lpc until December 15, 2010.

			TECHNICAL NOTES
			
			
Labor Hours: Hours data for the labor productivity and cost measures 
include hours for all persons working in the sector--wage and salary 
workers, the self-employed and unpaid family workers. The primary source 
of hours and employment data is the BLS Current Employment Statistics 
(CES) program, which provides monthly survey data on the number of jobs 
held by wage and salary workers in nonfarm establishments. The CES also 
provides average weekly paid hours of production and nonsupervisory 
workers in these establishments. Weekly paid hours are adjusted to hours 
at work using data from the National Compensation Survey (NCS). The BLS 
Hours at Work survey, conducted for this purpose, was used for earlier 
years. The Office of Productivity and Technology estimates average weekly 
hours at work for nonproduction and supervisory workers using information 
from the Current Population Survey (CPS), the CES, and the NCS.
     Data from the CPS are used for farm labor, nonfarm proprietors, and 
nonfarm unpaid family workers. Estimates of labor input for government 
enterprises are derived from the CPS, the CES, and the National Income and 
Product Accounts (NIPA) prepared by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) 
of the Department of Commerce.
     The CES measures jobs, counting a person who is employed by two or 
more establishments at each place of employment. In contrast, the CPS 
features measures of employment that count each person only once and 
classify each person according to his or her primary job; hours worked at 
all jobs by that person accrue to his or her primary job. However, the CPS 
also collects more detailed information on employment and hours worked at 
primary jobs and all other jobs, separately. The BLS productivity measures 
use the more detailed information on employment and hours to assign all 
hours worked to the correct industrial sector and avoid duplicating hours 
data from the CES.

Output: Business sector output is a chain-type, current-weighted index 
constructed after excluding from gross domestic product (GDP) the 
following outputs: general government, nonprofit institutions, and private 
households (including owner-occupied housing). Corresponding exclusions 
also are made in labor inputs. Business output accounted for about 75 
percent of the value of GDP in 2009. Nonfarm business, which excludes 
farming, accounted for about 74 percent of GDP in 2009.
     Annual indexes for manufacturing and its durable and nondurable goods 
components are constructed by deflating current-dollar industry value of 
production data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census with deflators from the 
BLS. These deflators are based on data from the BLS producer price program 
and other sources. The industry shipments are aggregated using annual 
weights, and intrasector transactions are removed. Quarterly manufacturing 
output measures are based on the index of industrial production prepared 
monthly by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, adjusted 
to be consistent with annual indexes of manufacturing sector output 
prepared by BLS. Durables include the following 3-digit NAICS industries: 
wood product manufacturing; nonmetallic mineral product manufacturing; 
primary metal manufacturing; fabricated metal product manufacturing; 
machinery manufacturing; computer and electronic product manufacturing; 
electrical equipment and appliance manufacturing; transportation equipment 
manufacturing; furniture and related product manufacturing; and 
miscellaneous manufacturing. Nondurables include: food manufacturing; 
beverage and tobacco product manufacturing; textile mills; textile product 
mills; apparel manufacturing; leather and allied product manufacturing; 
paper manufacturing; printing and related support activities; petroleum 
and coal products manufacturing; chemical manufacturing; and plastics and 
rubber products manufacturing.
     Nonfinancial corporate output is a chain-type, current-weighted index 
calculated on the basis of the costs incurred and the incomes earned from 
production.  The output measure excludes the following outputs from GDP: 
general government; nonprofit institutions; private households; 
unincorporated business; and those corporations classified as offices of 
bank holding companies, offices of other holding companies, or offices in 
the finance and insurance sector. Nonfinancial corporations accounted for 
about 47 percent of the value of GDP in 2009.
     
Productivity: These productivity measures describe the relationship 
between real output and the labor time involved in its production. They 
show the changes from period to period in the amount of goods and services 
produced per hour. Although these measures relate output to hours at work 
of all persons engaged in a sector, they do not measure the specific 
contribution of labor, capital, or any other factor of production. Rather, 
they reflect the joint effects of many influences, including changes in 
technology; capital investment; level of output; utilization of capacity, 
energy, and materials; the organization of production; managerial skill; 
and the characteristics and effort of the work force.

Labor Compensation: The measure includes accrued wages and salaries, 
supplements, employer contributions to employee benefit plans, and taxes. 
Estimates of labor compensation by major sector, required for measures of 
hourly compensation and unit labor costs, are based primarily on employee 
compensation data from the NIPA, prepared by the BEA. The compensation of 
employees in general government, nonprofit institutions and private 
households are subtracted from compensation of domestic employees to 
derive employee compensation for the business sector. The labor 
compensation of proprietors cannot be explicitly identified and must be 
estimated. This is done by assuming that proprietors have the same hourly 
compensation as employees in the same sector. The quarterly labor 
productivity and cost measures do not contain estimates of compensation 
for unpaid family workers.  
      
Unit Labor Costs: The measures of unit labor costs in this release 
describe the relationship between compensation per hour and productivity, 
or real output per hour, and can be used as an indicator of inflationary 
pressure on producers. Increases in hourly compensation increase unit 
labor costs; labor productivity increases offset compensation increases 
and lower unit labor costs. 

Presentation of the data: The quarterly data in this release are presented 
in three ways: as percent changes from the previous quarter presented at a 
compound annual rate, as percent changes from the corresponding quarter of 
the previous year, and as index number series where 2005=100. Annual data 
are presented both as index number series and percent changes from the 
previous year.  
	The index numbers and rates of change reported in the productivity 
and costs news release are rounded to one decimal place. All percent 
changes in this release and on the BLS web site are calculated using index 
numbers to three decimal places. These index numbers are available at the 
BLS web site, www.bls.gov/data/home.htm, or by contacting the BLS Division 
of Major Sector Productivity. (Telephone 202-691-5606 or email

SOURCES:  Output data are from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the 
Census Bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce; the Bureau of Labor 
Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor; and the Federal Reserve Board.  
Compensation and hours data are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and 
the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

RELIABILITY:  Productivity and cost measures are regularly revised as 
more complete information becomes available.  The measures are first 
published within 40 days of the close of the reference period; revisions 
appear 30 days later, and second revisions after an additional 60 days.  
In the business sector, the third publication (second revision) of a 
quarterly index of output per hour of all persons has differed from the 
initial value by between -1.7 and +1.5 index points approximately 95 
percent of the time.  This interval is based on the performance of this 
measure between the fourth quarter of 1995 and the second quarter of 
2010.


			Footnotes, Tables 1-6
			
(1)  Wages and salaries of employees plus employers' contributions for 
social insurance and private benefit plans.  Except for nonfinancial 
corporations, where there are no self-employed, data also include an 
estimate of wages, salaries, and supplemental payments for the self-
employed.

(2)  The change for recent quarters is based on the Consumer Price Index 
for all urban consumers (CPI-U).  The trend from 1978-2009 is based on the 
Consumer Price Index research series (CPI-U-RS).

(3)  Unit nonlabor payments include profits, consumption of fixed 
capital, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, net interest and 
miscellaneous payments, business current transfer payments, rental income 
of persons, and the current surplus of government enterprises.

(4)  Current dollar output divided by the output index.

(5)  Quarterly changes:  Percent change compounded at annual rate is 
calculated using index numbers to three decimal places.  Indexes 
published in the news release are rounded to one decimal place for 
convenience.  Annual changes:  Percent change is calculated using annual 
average indexes to three decimal places.

(6)  Unit nonlabor costs include consumption of fixed capital, taxes on 
production and imports less subsidies, net interest and miscellaneous 
payments, and business current transfer payments.

(7)  Total unit costs are the sum of unit labor and nonlabor costs.

(8)  Unit profits include corporate profits before tax with inventory 
valuation and capital consumption adjustments.
