Methodological note

The GDP per person employed in Purchasing Power Standards (PPS) is intended to measure the productivity of national economies. It should be kept in mind that this measure depends on the structure of total employment and therefore may, for instance, be lowered by a mere shift from full-time to part-time work.

From September 2014 onwards, the European Union is enforcing a new European system of accounts (ESA 2010), which details the methodology to be used in compiling estimates of the national accounts of all European Union member states.
