NOTES: Labor productivity for transportation measures quality-adjusted ton- and passenger-miles per hour. Quality adjustment corrects for differences in services and handling, e.g., the difference between flying first class and coach or differences in the handling requirements of high- and low-value commodities. Pipeline labor productivity is measured by output per employee. No data are available for water transportation.

Local trucking includes establishments that generally provide trucking services within a single municipality, contiguous municipalities, or a municipality and its suburban areas. Trucking, except local, includes common or contract carriers that generally provide trucking service beyond a single municipality, contiguous municipalities, or a municipality and its suburban areas.
