DEFINITION: The output measures used for calculations are Gross Domestic Product estimates from OECD Annual National Accounts database, based on the 1993 System of National Accounts.

They reflect regular hours worked by full-time and part-time workers, paid and unpaid overtime, hours worked in additional jobs and time not worked because of public holidays, annual paid leaves, strikes and labour disputes, bad weather, economic conditions and other reasons.
