The World KLEMS initiative has been set up to promote and facilitate the analysis of growth and productivity patterns around the world, based on a growth accounting framework. At the heart of the initiative is the gradually building up of new databases on output, inputs and productivity at a detailed industry level. Through harmonising concepts, common standards and classifications, the data is comparable across countries. By sharing information and knowledge, amongst others through conferences and workshops, the World KLEMS consortium is committed to bring this work forward and help it to establish a firm grounding in the (inter)national statistical systems.
Every two years the World KLEMS consortium holds a conference.The last conference was held on 12-13 October 2022 in Manchester (UK). In addition regional KLEMS conferences are held around the world at irregular intervals. Information about these events can be found on the conferences page.
