KEY: R = revised; U = data are unavailable.

a Annual estimates as of July 1 of each year. Data include Armed Forces abroad.

b Industrial Production Index covers manufacturing, mining, and utilities. To make it comparable with other data, Industrial Production Index is re-based to the year 1980.

NOTES

Passenger miles is the summation of all modes from table 1-40 less transit motor bus and demand responsive.

Ton-miles is the summation of all modes from table 1-50.
