Background

The 2001 estimates presented in this report are based on data collected from a sample of 45,881 companies with employees and 15,000 businesses without employees. The sample frame for companies with employees was slightly more than 5.7 million and for companies without employees about 18.2 million. For those companies with employees, capital expenditures data are published for 132 industries. In addition, total capital expenditures, with no industry detail, are shown for the businesses without employees.

Composition of Industry Codes

Beginning with the 1999 ACES, industry categories used in the survey were comprised primarily of three-digit and selected four-digit industries from the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS): 1997 . Industry combinations were developed through consultation with data users. In addition, a category was provided for structures and equipment expenditures serving multiple industries; for example, headquarters, regional offices, and central research laboratories.

Information Requested

Four survey forms (ACE-1(S), ACE-1(M), ACE-1(L), and ACE-2) were used for the 2001 ACES. The ACE-1(S), ACE-1(M), and ACE-1(L) survey forms were mailed to a sample of 45,881 companies with employees. Recipients of these survey forms were requested to provide capital expenditures data for each industry in which they had activity and to classify these expenditures as new and used structures and equipment.

New structures and equipment include expenditures for new buildings and other structures, structures that have been previously owned but neither used or occupied, new machinery and equipment, and other new depreciable assets. Used structures and equipment include expenditures for buildings and other structures which have been previously owned and occupied, secondhand machinery and equipment, and other used depreciable assets. In addition, these companies were asked to report new structures and equipment acquired under capital lease arrangements entered into during the survey year, and capitalized interest incurred to produce or construct new depreciable assets during the survey year.

The ACE-2 survey form was mailed to a sample of approximately 15,000 businesses without employees. Capital expenditures data were requested separately for new and used structures and equipment. (Examples of ACE-1(S), ACE-1(M), ACE-1(L), and ACE-2 survey forms are in Questionnaires and Instructions.)
