The Data Represent Value Of Work On Vessels Of Five Gross Tons And Over. For The Period 1889-1919, Estimates Of Value Of Output Were Used As Estimates Of Value Destined For Domestic Consumption. (No Adjustment Was Made For Exports And Imports.) The Primary Source For The 1869-1919 Estimates Was The Census Of Manufactures, Decennially 1869-1899 And Quinquennially 1899-1919. State Statistical Reports From Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, And New Jersey Were Used To Estimate The Intercensal Years From 1889 To 1919. For The Period 1919-33 The Data Are Based On Kuznets' Estimates. ("Commodity Flow And Capital Formation", I, New York, NBER, 1938) Adjusted To Improve Comparability With Earlier Years. (Shaw'S Figures Include All Work Done; Kuznets' Total Included Work Done On Completed Vessels Only.) After 1933 The Estimates Are Rough Extrapolations.
