NOTES: Data may not add to total because of
independent rounding. Data are based on survey results. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) uses
the term consumer unit rather than household.
BLS defines a consumer unit as 1) members of a household related by
blood, marriage, adoption, or other legal arrangement; 2) a person living
alone; sharing a household with others; rooming in a private home, lodging,
or in permanent living quarters in a hotel or motel but who is financially
independent; or 3) two or more persons living together and making joint
Other transportation includes fares for mass transit, buses, trains, airlines, taxis, school buses for which a fee is charged, and boats.
To eliminate the effects of inflation over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics converted current dollar amounts (see table 7-1b) to chained 2000 dollars.
