Although the Map & Data Library is physically closed, we are still available remotely and happy to help. We can conduct consultations using online teleconferencing software. Please feel free to contact us at or use our help form. We have a number of tutorials available, are still supplying software licenses, and have compiled a list of resources for working with COVID-19 data.

Please note that our computer lab is also accessible for use through remote access. See this link for more information.

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.
