The correlation is pretty clear: The greater the hours worked per week, on average, the lower the productivity (calculated as follows: GDP per capita (total output of a country divided by the number of people there) divided by hours worked per week).

- Luxembourg is far ahead of the pack in per-capita GDP/hours worked; it's the most efficient of the countries included in the graphic.
- Russia and Mexico account for the highest hours worked per week, and their average wage earned per hour is among the lowest.
