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.
