NOTES: Unless otherwise noted, data include only privately owned capital stock. Consumer motor vehicles are considered consumer durable goods. In-house transportation includes transportation services provided within a firm whose main business is not transportation. For example, grocery companies often use their own truck fleets to move goods from their warehouses to their retail outlets. Other publicly owned transportation includes publicly owned airway, waterway, and transit structures but does not include associated equipment. Other privately owned transportation includes sightseeing, couriers and messengers, and transportation support activities such as freight transportation brokers. Other publicly owned transportation data prior to 1997 were not available when this report was prepared.
To eliminate the effects of inflation over time, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics converted current dollar values (see tables 2-1b/2-2b in appendix B) to chained 2000 dollars.
