NBER-CES Manufacturing Industry Database

Randy Becker, Wayne Gray, Jordan Marvakov

Updated Data 1958-2009 - SIC and NAICS versions

Original February 2013; Revised June 2013 (re-allocating grouped ASM industries post-2002)

This database is a joint effort between the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) and U.S. Census Bureau's Center for Economic Studies (CES), containing annual industry-level data from 1958-2009 on output, employment, payroll and other input costs, investment, capital stocks, TFP, and various industry-specific price indexes. Because of the change from SIC to NAICS industry definitions in 1997, the database is provided in two versions: one with 459 four-digit 1987 SIC industries and the other with 473 six-digit 1997 NAICS industries.

We ask that you please not forward this data on to others. Instead, please refer interested parties to this website. This ensures that everyone receives the latest version of the data that's available.
