Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the total market value of all goods and services produced within the borders of a jurisdiction during a specified period. Real GDP is stated in chained dollars. In other words, real GDP is a jurisdiction's total output of goods and services adjusted for price changes. Real GDP Per hour worked is the value of all goods and services produced within a jurisdiction in a given year, divided by the total annual hours worked. The annual provincial program of Canadian Productivity Accounts from Statistics Canada produces annual data on jobs, hours worked, labour compensation and a variety of related variables, such as labour productivity and unit labour cost by province and territory. Provincial and territorial measures of labour productivity and its related variables are consistent with the concepts of the System of National Accounts and with the input-output industry coding.
