American Business Cycle


contributors: Robert J. Gordon, Nathan S. Balke

description: Presented here are the tables of quarterly data from Appendix B of "The American Business Cycle: Continuity and Change" Edited by Robert J. Gordon. National Bureau of Economic Research Studies in Business Cycles Volume 25, Univerisity of Chicago Press 1986. For information about sources and methods please see that volume. A feature of that volume is an extensive data appendix, compliled as a project independent of the conference in collaboration with Nathan S. Balke. The unique value of this data set is the fact that it is the only existing source for the pre-1947 quarterly data, as NIPA quarterly data series do not otherwise exist before 1947. These files include the components of GDP back from 1941 to 1919 and the quarterly real GDP back to 1875.
