The U.S. Transportation Satellite Accounts for 1992 were prepared by staff in the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) under the direction of Rolf R. Schmitt, Associate Director, and in the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) under the direction of Sumiye Okubo, Associate Director of Industry Accounts, and Ann M. Lawson, Chief of the Industry Economics Division. The project was initiated by J. Steven Landefeld, Director of BEA, and T.R. Lakshmanan, former Director of BTS.

Bingsong Fang and Xiaoli Han from BTS developed the framework for the accounts and designed the data processing system. They developed the estimates with Simon Randrianarivel from BTS and Belinda L. Bonds from BEA. Also from BEA, Brian D. Kajutti and John Turner assisted with the computer programming and data processing; Mark A. Planting and Karen J. Horowitz provided valuable comments during the review of the estimates; and Mary L. Roy and Kimberly A. Mourey coordinated the preparation of the article. Other contributors were Timothy D. Aylor, William McCarthy, and Robert E. Yuskavage from BEA and David P. Vogt from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
