Notes:
The cigarette packages taxed number was previously based on cigarette tax collections. The cigarette packages taxed number is now based on the number of cigarette tax stamps sold. All historical cigarette package taxed numbers have been revised to reflect this new method.

Crude oil and natural gas figures are net taxable values. Gasoline gallons include gasohol. Auto sale values are calculated from motor vehicle taxes collected on new and used vehicle sales. All figures are not seasonally adjusted, except for industrial production, leading indicators and employment/unemployment. Figures are based on the most recent available data. Annual figures are for calendar years.

Annual numbers for active oil and gas drilling rigs are the median for that calendar year.
