BUSINESS STATISTICS
_L HE STATISTICS here are a continuation of the data published in the 1959 edition of BUSINESS STATISTICS, biennial Statistical Supplement
to the SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS. That volume (price $2.25) contains monthly (or quarterly) data for the years 1955 through 1958 and
monthly averages for all years back to 1929 insofar as available; it also provides a description of each series and references to sources of monthly
figures prior to 1955. Series added or significantly revised since publication of the 1959 BUSINESS STATISTICS are indicated by an asterisk (*) and a
dagger if), respectively; certain revisions for 1958 issued too late for inclusion in the aforementioned volume appear in the monthly SURVEY
beginning with the July 1959 issue. Except as otherwise stated, the terms "unadjusted" and "adjusted" refer to adjustment for seasonal
variation.
Statistics originating in Government agencies are not copyrighted and may be reprinted freely. Data from private sources are provided
through the courtesy of the compilers, and are subject to their copyrights.
Unless otherwise stated, statistics through 1958 and
descriptive notes are shown in the 1959 edition of
