These data are presented as an aid in following economic developments in these metropolitan
centers. Because economic activity is complex, a more meaningful analysis can be made by con­
sidering the entire set of indicators than by relying on any single one. Moreover, there may be
technical shortcomings in some series.
All data have been adjusted for seasonal variations. In addition, in order to smooth erratic
fluctuations, the electric power, department store sales, and check payments series are presented as
three-month moving averages. The most recent observation presented for each of these three in­
dicators is an average of the last two months.
The index o f industrial use o f 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. Total sales fig ires are provided by cooperating department stores in each center.
It should be recognized that these data relate only to department store sales and do not necessarily
reflect trends and fluctuations in other categories of retail sales or in total retail sales. Check pay­
ments, or debits, are reported monthly by all or a sample of commercial banks. The data for deposits
and business loans are provided by the weekly reporting banks in each area, the monthly figures
being averages of weekly data. Deposits include time deposits and demand deposits other than
interbank and U. S. Government, less cash items in process of collection.
