The present paper deals with an international comparison of labour productivity, as well as with total factor productivity comparison made by different international organisations, e.g. the OECD. These kinds of comparisons do not contain data regarding transition countries in the 20th century. Long-term comparisons yield an analysis of the several factors influencing productivity trends, among which human factors have an increasing role. The second part of the paper gives several kinds of information about the tendencies of the Hungarian labour productivity on a national and branch level. The most important development can be seen in the engineering industry. A short part of the paper illustrates the development of total factor productivity in Hungary between 1992 and 1997.

Keywords: factors influencing the level of productivity; international comparison; labour productivity; structural changes in Hungary; total factor productivity
