Annual average over selected period

The numbers reported in the tables are log first differences. They represent an approximation of the percentage change in the variable of interest. Strictly speaking, the percentage change in a variable Y at period t is defined as (Y(t)-Y(t-1))/Y(t-1), which is approximately equal to LOG(Y(t)) - LOG(Y(t-1)). The approximation is almost exact if the percentage change is small. For example, a 5% percentage change in delta logs is equal to 4.88%, i.e. ln(1+5%)=0.0488.
