Multifactor productivity is calculated by dividing an index of real output by an index of combined units of labor input and capital services. It is designed to measure the joint influences of technological change, efficiency improvements, returns to scale, reallocation of resources, and other factors of economic growth, accounting for the effects of capital and labor. This data was found using sectoral output per unit of combined K, L, E, M, S.
