For growth rate, you can use Real GDP Growth of the country, or Real GDP Growth per head. For total factor productivity, you`ll have to find the portion of output generated by the amount of inputs used in production. It is usually made up of capital and labour, e.g TFP = 4Q+3L.

The standard measure of total factor productivity growth
is the Solow residual. If you need an explanation of this there is a great resource on the Bank of England website.
