is the result of close collaboration and consultation with experts from RLSB, BTEA, the Drowning Prevention Committee and pool operators.
In the following discussion, an increase in an industry's GSPO in a State is "above average" ("below average") if it is more than (less than) the increase in total GSP in the State.
In most of these States, GSPO had above-average increases in agriculture, in construction, in durable goods manufacturing, and in both wholesale and retail trade.
In California, Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, Maryland, and Connecticut, GSPO declined or had below-average increases in durable goods manufacturing, particularly in defense-related industries, such as electronic and other electric equipment and transportation equipment excluding motor vehicles.
In Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Alaska, GSPO declined in mining, particularly in oil and gas extraction.
GSPO in goods-producing industries (agriculture, mining, construction, and manufacturing) increased 0.6 percent, GSPO in private service-type industries (trade, the finance-insurance-real estate group, the transportation-public utilities group, and services) increased 2.3 percent, and GSPO in government increased 1.8 percent.(5)
Most of these States had above-average increases in GSPO in all major goods-producing industries except nondurables manufacturing.
Most of the 10 States had above-average increases in GSPO in all major private service-type industries and in government.
Most of these States had declines or below-average increases in GSPO in agriculture, in nondurables manufacturing, in construction, and in mining.
Most of the seven States had declines or belowaverage increases in GSPO in all major private service-type industries and in government.
