NBER-CES manufacturing industry database

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 on output, employment, payroll and other input costs, investment, capital stocks, TFP, and various industry-specific price indexes.The database covers all 4-digit SIC (and 6-digit NAICS) manufacturing industries from 1958-2005, in two versions: 1987 SIC codes (459 industries) and 1997 NAICS codes (473 industries). The NBER-CES Manufacturing Industry Database covers the period 1958-2005; note that some industries enter or leave manufacturing in 1997 when the industry code changed from SIC to NAICS, so some industries' observations are missing for 1958-1996 or 1997-2005. Available in Stata, SAS, dBase, Excel and ASCII comma-delimited.
