THESE DATA are presented as an aid in following
economic developments in the above metropolitan centers.
Because economic activity by its very nature is a composite of
many different segments, a more meaningful picture of economic
developments can be obtained by considering the entire set of
indicators as a whole rather than by placing undue emphasis on
any single indicator. Moreover, there may be shortcomings in
each series which may create a misleading impression.
All the data have been adjusted for seasonal variations.
In addition, in order to smooth erratic fluctuation in the data,
the electric power, department store sales, and check payments
series are presented as three-month moving averages. It should
be noted that the most recent index presented for each of these
three indicators is an average of the last two months and is
subject to revision.




The index of the industrial use of electric power is based
on data provided to this Bank by the public utilities in each
area. Employment data are developed by the respective State
Employment Security Offices. Cooperating department stores
in each center provide total sales figures- It should be rec­
ognized that these data relate only to department store sales
and do not necessarily reflect trends and fluctuations in other
categories of retail sales or of total retail sales. Check pay­
ments, or debits, are reported monthly by all or a sample of
commercial banks. The data for total deposits and business
loans are provided by the weekly reporting banks in each area,
the monthly figures being averages of weekly data.
Total
deposits include demand deposits adjusted (other than inter­
bank and U. S. Government, less cash items in process of
collection) and time deposits.
