US Finance Industry Profits


A data.frame giving the profits of the finance industry in the United States as a proportion of total corporate domestic profits.




A data.frame with the following columns:


integer year starting with 1929


Corporate profits with inventory valuation and capital consumption adjustments in billions of current (not adjusted for inflation) US dollars


Domestic industries profits in billions


Financial industries profits in billions


Nonfinancial industries profits in billions


Profits of the "Rest of the world" in their contribution to US Gross Domestic Product in billions

This is extracted from Table 6.16 of the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPA) compiled by the Bureau of Economic Analysis of the United States federal government. This table comes in four parts, A (1929-1947), B (1948-1987), C (1987-2000), and D (1998-present). Parts A, B, C and D contain different numbers of data elements, but the first five have the same names and are the only ones used here. The overlap between parts C and D (1998-2000) have a root mean square relative difference of 0.7 percent; there were no differences between the numbers in the overlap period between parts B and C (1987).

This was created using the following command:

demoDir <- system.file('demoFiles', package='Ecdat') demoCsv <- dir(demoDir, pattern='csv$', full.names=TRUE)

nipa6.16 <- readNIPA(demoCsv) USFinanceIndustry <- as.data.frame(nipa6.16) names(USFinanceIndustry) <- c('year', 'CorporateProfitsAdj', 'Domestic', 'Financial', 'Nonfinancial', 'restOfWorld') USFinanceIndustry$FinanceProportion <- with(USFinanceIndustry, Financial/Domestic)


http://www.bea.gov: Under "U.S. Economic Accounts", first select "Corporate Profits" under "National". Then next to "Interactive Tables", select, "National Income and Product Accounts Tables". From there, select "Begin using the data...". Under "Section 6 - income and employment by industry", select each of the tables starting "Table 6.16". As of February 2013, there were 4 such tables available: Table 6.16A, 6.16B, 6.16C and 6.16D. Each of the last three are available in annual and quarterly summaries. The USFinanceIndustry data combined the first 4 rows of the 4 annual summary tables.
