Sharing the wealth, or at least the compensation

July 30th, 2019 at 10:54 am

Twitter econ asked for my historical ECI series, so here you go. See tab “finaltbl.” For columns B and C–pvt industry–I do a small splice re older data which you can track through the spreadsheet. For cols D & E–these are “all civilian” and are the series we use for our wage mashup–I don’t bother splicing. I doesn’t really make a difference as splice factor is tiny for toplines (they matter more for industries).

Now, in return, I want gobs of twitter love and a wage series to be named later.

    I feel like I’ve just walked in late. I assume that this is an employment cost index for the US. (Base sometime in 2005?), but I’m not sure of the coverage and whether this is in real or nominal terms (I’m gonna guess nominal).
