Abstract

The objective of this book is to generate a long-run continuous annual series of average hourly compensation for production workers in manufacturing in the United States. The series begins in the year 1800, continues to the present, and in principle is ongoing into the future. The study provides full information on construction of the new series; it also puts this construction in context, by reviewing data sources (chapter 2) and the existing literature on related historical series (chapters 3 and 5).
