**Note:** Productivity series reflects total economy compensation while ECI and ECEC reflect the compensation for all private workers. The dotted line denotes a linear interpolation between 2000q1–2001q1 and 2001q1–2002q1 (no formal data exist for quarters two, three, or four in 2000 or 2001). Only the ECI had data available for 2013q2.
