SELECTED ECONOMIC INDICATORS




CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI VALLEY METROPOLITAN AREAS

ST. LOUIS

EVANSVILLE

LOUISVILLE

SPRINGFIELD, MO.

MEMPHIS

FORT SMITH

LITTLE ROCK

Prepared by Research Department
Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis




T h ese data are presented as an aid in following economic developments in metropolitan centers
located within the district of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Because economic activity is
complex, a more meaningful analysis can be made by considering the entire set of indicators than by
relying on any single one. Moreover, there may be technical shortcomings in some series.
All data are presented in both unadjusted and adjusted-for-seasonal-variation form. Index numbers
are on a 1957-59 base. In addition, in order to smooth erratic fluctuations, the indexes of electric
power, department store sales, and check payments are averages of the indexes for three months
(i.e ., the month reported and the month just prior and just following) except for the most recent index.
T his is an average of two months (i.e ., the month reported and the month just prior).
The index of industrial use of electric power is based on data provided to this Bank by the
public u tilities in each area. Employment data are developed by the respective State Employment
Security O ffices. Total sales figures are provided by cooperating department stores in each center
and represent only a portion of total retail sales. Check payments (debits) are reported monthly by
all or a sample of commercial banks. The data for deposits and business loans provided by weekly
reporting banks are monthly averages of weekly data. Deposits include time deposits and demand
deposits other than interbank and U. S. Government, le s s cash items in process of collection.

Footnotes for charts:
1. Three-month moving averages (except
latest month, which is a two-month
average)
2. Weekly reporting banks

3- Includes stores in Vincennes

5. All commercial banks

4. All member banks
