United States Industry Stats

Background:

America’s love of the car is reflected by the significance of its vehicle manufacturing sector. The US is the leading nation in motor vehicle production with more than 12 million built in 2002, more than double that of 2nd-placed Germany. It is also 1st in light commercial vehicle production with 7 million vehicles, but is 3rd in heavy truck production, behind Japan and China.

Definitions

  • Aluminium > Production > Tonnes: Production of aluminum around the world in 2009-10. Figures are in tonnes.
  • Car > Production: OICA defines passenger cars as motor vehicles used for transporting passengers with at least four wheels and containing 8 seats or less.
  • Car > Production > Per capita: OICA defines passenger cars as motor vehicles used for transporting passengers with at least four wheels and containing 8 seats or less. Per capita figures expressed per 1,000 population.
  • Electrolux CO2 emissions: CO2 emissions in metric tons from Electrolux factories, by country.
  • Electrolux Factories: Number of Electrolux factories, by country.
  • Electrolux hazardous waste generation: Hazardous waste generated by Electrolux factories in metric tons.
  • Growth: Annual growth rate for industrial value added based on constant local currency. Aggregates are based on constant 2000 U.S. dollars. Industry corresponds to ISIC divisions 10-45 and includes manufacturing (ISIC divisions 15-37). It comprises value added in mining, manufacturing (also reported as a separate subgroup), construction, electricity, water, and gas. Value added is the net output of a sector after adding up all outputs and subtracting intermediate inputs. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or depletion and degradation of natural resources. The origin of value added is determined by the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), revision 3."
  • Heavy truck > Production: Heavy truck production by country 2002
  • Light commercial vehicle > Production: Light commercial vehicle production by country 2002
  • Manufacturing growth: Annual growth rate for manufacturing value added based on constant local currency. Aggregates are based on constant 2000 U.S. dollars. Manufacturing refers to industries belonging to ISIC divisions 15-37. Value added is the net output of a sector after adding up all outputs and subtracting intermediate inputs. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or depletion and degradation of natural resources. The origin of value added is determined by the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), revision 3."

  • Motor vehicle > Production: Motor vehicle production by country 2002
  • Patent applications > Nonresidents: Patent applications are applications filed with a national patent office for exclusive rights for an invention--a product or process that provides a new way of doing something or offers a new technical solution to a problem. A patent provides protection for the invention to the owner of the patent for a limited period, generally 20 years.
  • Patent applications > Residents: Patent applications are applications filed with a national patent office for exclusive rights for an invention--a product or process that provides a new way of doing something or offers a new technical solution to a problem. A patent provides protection for the invention to the owner of the patent for a limited period, generally 20 years.
  • Value added > Constant LCU: Industry corresponds to ISIC divisions 10-45 and includes manufacturing (ISIC divisions 15-37). It comprises value added in mining, manufacturing (also reported as a separate subgroup), construction, electricity, water, and gas. Value added is the net output of a sector after adding up all outputs and subtracting intermediate inputs. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or depletion and degradation of natural resources. The origin of value added is determined by the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), revision 3. Data are in constant local currency.
