In this report the authors apply a very simple analytic method to measure workforce productivity in the health sector at the district level in Ghana. The authors then describe how the productivity analysis can be potentially used to inform staffing decisions. Specifically, in this paper the authors: (i) develop an aggregate measure of workforce productivity that can be monitored regularly at the district level in Ghana and could be applied in other data constrained settings (ii) explore factors that are correlated with workforce productivity at the district level (iii) examine trends in workforce productivity over time; and (iv) provide recommendations on further work, particularly on improvements in data collection.
