(1) Within insurance trust revenue, net earnings of state retirement systems
is a calculated statistic (the item code in the data file is X08), and thus can be
positive or negative. Net earnings is the sum of earnings on investments plus gains on
investments minus losses on investments. The change made in 2002 for asset valuation
from book to market value in accordance with Statement 34 of the Governmental
Accounting Standards Board is reflected in the calculated statistics.
