the 15th of the current month, and the last
Wednesday of the current month. Data are
collected by this Bank and the Board of Gov­
ernors of the Federal Reserve System.

ally within the Eighth Federal Reserve District.
Also included are check payment series for ten
other Eighth District cities.

Check payments are debits to de­
mand deposit accounts, except interbank and
U.S. Government accounts. The data are based
on a sample of commercial banks in each area
adjusted to reflect total debits of all banks
in the area and the number of trading days in
the month. Data are collected by this Bank
and the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System.

Data are presented in both unadjusted
and seasonally adjusted index form. Index num­
bers are on a 1967=100 base. The latest data in
most series are preliminary and are revised as
the final figures are received.
Manpower Utilization
Basic employment data are from the re­
spective State Employment Security Office and
the United States Department of Labor.

Income
State personal income figures are
annual rates of monthly figures published by
Business Week. United States data are from
the Department of Commerce.

Banking Activity
Total loan and total deposit data are
for Federal Reserve member banks only and are
averages of data for the last Wednesday of the
preceding month, the Wednesday on or preceding




Farm cash receipts are annual rates
of monthly figures published by the United
States Department of Agriculture.

SUMMARY OF CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI VALLEY ECONOMIC ACTIVITY
Total employment In the Central Mississippi
Valley (CMV) has increased substantially in the past two years,
generally sharing the national upswing in business activity.
Total employment in the five CMV states, on average, increased
at about the same rate as the nation, while the total for the
eight CMV metropolitan areas rose at a slower rate.
Both total and payroll employment increased at a
somewhat slower rate in 1973 than 1972 in the five state area.
This slower rate of employment growth in 1973 indicated that
the region's economy was approaching capacity levels, whereas
during 1972 it was still recovering from the recession of 1970.
The recovery from the 1970 recession was slower
for the eight metropolitan areas (SMSAs) of the CMV than for
the entire states. Hence, in view of the available produc­
tive capacity, the SMSAs continued their recovery in 1973 and
expanded faster last year than the year earlier. Total
employment in five SMSAs, Evansville, Fort Smith, Little Rock,
Louisville and Springfield grew at faster rates than the U.S.
in 1973. The slower average growth of total employment for
all the SMSAs reflects primarily the slower growth in two of
the larger SMSAs in the District (St. Louis and Memphis.)
For example, total employment in St. Louis, the largest SMSA
in the region, remained virtually unchanged in 1973, after
declining about 2 percent in 1972.
