The paper is aimed at assessing the development of labour productivity in GDP (in PPS) per an employed person (EU15 = 100%). There were evaluated the countries of the EU and for comparison the USA and Japan in the reference period 1994 to 2003. Methods of regression and correlation analysis and development trends were used for the mathematical-statistical analysis. A strong increasing development trend is to observe in Ireland. The strongest decrease is in Italy and Germany. The development trend in the Czech Republic is slightly increasing.Keywords:
