NOTES

Details may not add to totals due to the nature of the chained dollar calculations.

At the time of this publication the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) had only published chained 2009 dollar estimates from 1997 onward. Current dollar estimates for earlier years can be found in table 3-1, and chained 2005 dollars estimates for earlier years can be found in the 2013 edition of NTS, table 3-2.
