* BUSINESS STATISTICS
JL HE STATISTICS here are a continuation of the data published in BUSINESS STATISTICS, the 1951 Statistical Supplement to the SURVEY
OF CURRENT BUSINESS. That volume (price $1.50) contains monthly data for the years 1947 to 1950, and monthly averages for earlier years
back to 1935 insofar as available; it also provides a description of each series and references to sources of monthly figures prior to 1947. Series
added or revised since publication of the 1951 Supplement are indicated by an asterisk (*) and a dagger (f), respectively, the accompanying footnote indicating where historical data and a descriptive note may be found. The terms "unadjusted" and "adjusted" used to designate index
numbers and dollar values refer to adjustment of monthly figures for seasonal variation.
Data subsequent to August 1951 for selected series will be found in the Weekly Supplement to the SURVEY.
Unless otherwise stated, statistics through
1950 and descriptive notes are shown in the
1951 Statistical Supplement to the Survey
