BUSINESS STATISTICS
J_ HE STATISTICS here update series published in the 1961 edition of BUSINESS STATISTICS, biennial Statistical Supplement to the SURVEY
OF CURRENT BUSINESS. That volume (price $2.00) contains data by months, or quarters, for the years 1957 through 1960 (1951-60, for major
quarterly series) and averages of monthly or quarterly data for all years back to 1939; it also provides a description of each series and references
to sources of earlier figures. Series added or significantly revised after the 1961 BUSINESS STATISTICS went to press are indicated by an asterisk
(*) and a dagger (t), respectively; certain revisions for 1960 issued too late for inclusion in the aforementioned volume appear in the monthly
SURVEY beginning with the July 1961 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 1960
and descriptive notes are shown in the 1961
edition of BUSINESS STATISTICS
