Definition: The index sets the level of GDP per hour worked in the U.S. to 100 and uses it as basis to compare other countries. Countries with an index greater (smaller) than 100 have greater (lower) labor productivity than the U.S. The GDP used in the calculation is adjusted for Purchasing Power Parity to account for price differences across countries.
