Fixed reproducible tangible wealth in the United States, 1988-91.

TABLES 1-20 PRESENT estimates of fixed reproducible tangible wealth in the United States for 1988-91. These estimates, which cover the stock of privately owned and government-owned durable equipment and structures and of durable goods owned by consumers, incorporate the revised national income and product accounts estimates for 1989-91 that appeared in the July 1992 Survey of Current Business. Estimates of fixed private capital are shown in tables 1-4; fixed nonresidential private capital, in tables 5-8; residential capital, in tables 9-12; government-owned fixed capital, in tables 13-16; and durable goods owned by consumers, in tables 17-20. Estimates for the wealth series for 1988 are unrevised from those that appeared in the January 1992 Survey; that issue also contained, at the same level of detail shown here, estimates of fixed private capital by industry back to 1947 and of the other wealth series back to 1925.

This publication will present annual estimates of gross and net stocks, depreciation discards, and average ages of gross and net stocks in historical-cost, constant-cost, and current-cost valuations for the types of wealth shown in tables 1-20 and for private and government capital by type of equipment and structures; it will also provide the investment series and service lives used to derive the estimates and an updated statement of methodology. The availability of this publication will be announced in the Survey.
