Alternative Base Values for Computing Growth Rates

An alternative file Excel spreadsheet of quarterly base values for real and nominal GDP (GNP in surveys before 1996) is available. The file shows the historical values as the Bureau of Economic Analysis revised them after we sent the questionnaire to the panelists but before the deadline for returns.
