NOTES: To eliminate the effects of inflation over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics converted current dollars to chained 2000 dollars. Because of the way these chained dollars were calculated, the total is not a sum of the individual data but rather a separate calculation.

Other transportation and support activities cover scenic and sightseeing transportation, support activities for transportation (e.g., private air traffic control services, marine cargo handling, and motor vehicle towing), and couriers and messengers.
