UK Sectoral Productivity

While there is data at the local authority level available for the main industry sectors as described above, there are no local level figures available for sectoral productivity at a more detailed level. The figures below stem from the UK department BEIS and illustrate the sectoral variation in labour productivity at the UK level. Whilst there may be differences for Scotland there are not presently cross sector statistics at the Scotland level. Overall these BEIS analysis show that the highest productivity sectors are Oil and Gas, Real Estate, Pharmaceuticals and Utilities. The lowest are in administrative and support services; hotels and restaurants; health and social care; retail; and agriculture.
