1. "Own-account transportation" includes transportation by truck and bus provided by nontransportation industries for their own use.

2. "Other" consists of government enterprises (except State and local government passenger transit) and other input-output (I-O) special industries. For a description of I-O special industries, see Ann M. Lawson, "Benchmark Input-Output Accounts for the U.S. Economy, 1992: Make, Use, and Supplementary Tables," SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS 77 (November 1997): 46–47.
