HE STATISTICS here update series published in the 1963 edition of BUSINESS STATISTICS, biennial Statistical Supplement to the SURVEY
OP CURRENT BUSINESS. That volume (price $2.00) contains data by months, or quarters, for the years 1959 through 19'62 (1951-62, 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 1963 BUSINESS STATISTICS went to press are indicated by an asterisk
(*) and a dagger (|), respectively; certain revisions for 1962 issued too late for inclusion in the aforementioned volume appear in the monthly
SURVEY beginning with the August 1963 issue. Also, unless otherwise noted, revised monthly data (for periods not shown herein) corresponding
to revised monthly averages are available upon request. 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,
through the courtesy of the compilers, and are subject to their copyrights.
Unless otherwise stated, statistics through 1962
and descriptive notes are shown in the 1963
edition of BUSINESS STATISTICS
