= Production value/number of employees
= Revenues – inputs
= Value added /number of employees
= Production value / wages
= Value of inputs / No. of employees
= Wages / No. employees
= (Value of inputs / value of production) 100*
= (Current year/ Previous year-1)*100
Dinar productivity of wages
Average share of employee of inputs
Average annual wage per employee
