Enclosed are the fixed capital stock estimates you requested. The basic figures for the estimates are the official ones reported in the annual issues of the economic handbook. Some inconsistencies have appeared in successive issues of the handbook, but in such cases the most recent estimates have been used.

Conceptually, tho ruble-value base figure for total industrial productive fixed capital probably does not exactly match the figure on which the branch relative shares are based. All industrial enterprises, whether they are on an independent balance sheet or not, make up the ruble-value base figure for total industrial productive fixed capital; the share figures are computed only for enterprises on independent balance sheets. So, the universe of the two may be different, but in the absence of anything better thi3 is our methodology.

The estimates are asanuary of the given year. When using the estimates in our studies, we convert to an average annual figure for the given year.

an be of further assistance, let me know.

with regards.
