Reported earnings in the second quarter of 2021 include special items expense and income rounding to a negligible impact, while reported earnings in the second quarter of 2020 include $.79 per share of special items expense primarily for the impairment of goodwill associated with our Paper segment.

Excluding special items, the $.79 per share increase in second quarter 2021 earnings compared to the second quarter of 2020 was driven primarily by higher prices and mix $1.01 and volume $.74 in our Packaging segment, higher volume in our Paper segment $.03, and lower non-operating pension expense $.03. These items were partially offset by higher operating costs ($.57), higher annual outage expenses ($.19), higher freight and logistics expenses ($.19), higher converting costs ($.05), higher depreciation expense ($.01), and lower prices and mix in our Paper segment ($.01).
