**Note:** Productivity series reflects the total economy, while ECI and ECEC reflect the compensation of all private workers. ECEC data are linearly interpolated 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.
