NOTES

Data in this table have been completely revised from last year based on the Comprehensive Revision of the National Income and Product Accounts by the Economic Anaylsis. One element of the revision, reflected in this table, is a switch from the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).

For-hire transportation numbers may not equal total due to the nature of the chained dollar calculations.

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.
