/1 Output is chained 1992 dollar gross product originating by industry
published by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) in Table 14 (page 154) of
the August 1996. Hours of all persons are constructed by assuming that
self-employed workers work the same number of hours annually as full-time
employees. Annual hours of full-time employees are constructed by dividing
hours worked by full-time and part-time employees by the number of
full-time-equivalent employees. Self-employed workers are constructed by
subtracting full-time-equivalent employees from persons engaged in
production. See Tables 6.5c, 6.8c, 6.9c in the National Income and Product
Accounts. Data for 1987 to 1994 are reported using 1987 SIC definitions;
data for 1977 to 1986 are reported using 1972 SIC definitions. Productivity
levels in the earlier period are adjusted by setting the 1987 levels of
productivity equal for the two definitions. Where the two sets of SIC codes
were not comparable, we followed BEAs instructions and merged series. These
are indicated by footnotes. Finally, there are some series breaks for the
number of self-employed workers in the two-digit industries between 1991 and
1992.
