These factors are used by the railroads to adjust their gross annual operating revenues for classification purposes. This indexing methodology ensures that railroads are classified based on real business expansion and not on the effects of inflation. Classification is important because it determines the extent to which individual railroads must comply with STB reporting requirements. The STB’s annual inflation-adjusted factors are based on the annual average Railroad Freight Price Index developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The STB’s deflator factor is used to deflate revenues for comparison with established revenue thresholds. The base year for railroads is 1991. The inflation index factors are presented as follows: STB RAILROAD INFLATION-ADJUSTED INDEX AND DEFLATOR FACTOR TABLE Year 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 E:\FR\FM\14JNN1.SGM .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... 14JNN1 Index 409.50 411.80 415.50 418.80 418.17 417.46 419.67 424.54 423.01 428.64 436.48 445.03 454.33 473.41 522.41 Deflator 1 100.00 99.45 98.55 97.70 97.85 98.02 97.50 96.38 96.72 95.45 93.73 91.92 90.03 86.40 78.29
