Bulletins and Articles Published by Bureau of
Labor Statistics: A Selected List of References

The references given on the following pages do nob constitute a
complete catalog of publications of the Bureau of Labor Statistics
but, as noted in the title above, are a selected list. A list of the
Bureau’s bulletins published since July 1912, classified by subject,
is available in a printed leaflet, and a chronological list of all its
publications is given in the list of publications of the Department
of Labor. A detailed index to the material carried in the Monthly
Labor Review is published for each volume (6 numbers).
The Bureau has a limited number of its bulletins for distribution
and as long as the supply lasts they are furnished free upon request.
This also applies to single copies of the Monthly Labor Review, but
regular distribution of the Review is on a subscription basis, the sub­
scriptions being handled by the Superintendent of Documents,
Government Printing Office, Washington, D. C. The free-distribution supply of some of the publications noted in this list is exhausted
(indicated by an asterisk), but most if not all of them can be pur­
chased at a nominal charge from the Superintendent of Documents,
or consulted in local libraries, many of which are depositories for
publications of the Federal Government.
The letters M. L. R. indicate the Monthly Labor Review.
Child Labor

Child labor in the United States, 1933, as reflected by employment certificates
issued. Prepared by United States Children’s Bureau. (M. L. R., Dec.
1934—reprint.)

Since the creation of the Children’s Bureau of the United States Department of Labor, all original
investigations of matters pertaining to child labor in the United States, conducted by the Depart­
ment of Labor, have been made by that bureau, which will be glad to furnish lists of publications
request.

Retail Prices and Cost of Living
Retail food prices are issued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics biweekly in the
form of press releases, and monthly in a printed pamphlet; prices of coal
are published monthly in the pamphlet with food prices; prices of gas and
electricity have been collected and published semiannually, as of June
and December, the months of the cost-of-living surveys, but it is now
planned to collect them quarterly, for periods corresponding to the changed
dates of the cost-of-living surveys (see note below on cost of living). Com­
parative index numbers of retail food prices in the United States and certain




14

foreign countries are published quarterly. With a few exceptions, all of
the data on retail prices are published in the Monthly Labor Review.
The latest detailed report on retail prices published by the Bureau in
bulletin form (No. 495) covered the period 1890 to 1928.
Data on cost of living have been collected by the Bureau for many years semi­
annually, as of June and December, and published in a printed pamphlet
and in the Monthly Labor Review, preceded by a press release giving
summary figures. The printed report has also included a tabulation of
comparative index numbers of cost of living in the United States and certain
foreign countries. The Bureau now hopes to be able to make the cost-ofliving surveys quarterly instead of semiannually as heretofore. The latest
survey was as of March 1935.
