T h e s e data are p resented a s an aid in following economic developm ents in m etropolitan cen te rs
lo c a te d within the d istric t of the Federal R eserv e Bank of St. L o u is. B ecau se economic ac tiv ity is
com plex, a more meaningful a n aly sis can be made by considering the entire se t of in dicators than by
relying on any single one. Moreover, there may be tech n ical shortcom ings in some se rie s.
All d ata are p resented in both unadjusted and adjusted-for-seasonaL -variation form. Index numbers
are on a 1957-59 b ase. In addition, in order to smooth erratic flu ctu atio n s, the in dexes of ele c tric
power, departm ent store sa le s, and check paym ents are av erages of the in d ex es for three m onths
( i.e ., the month reported and the month ju st prior and ju st following) except for the most recent index.
T h is is an average of two months (i.e ., the month reported and the month ju st prior).
T h e index of industrial use of e le c tric power is b ased on d ata provided to th is Bank by the
p u b lic u tilitie s in each area. Employment data are developed by the re sp e c tiv e S tate Employment
Security O ffices. Total s a le s figures are provided by cooperating departm ent sto re s in each cen ter
and re p re se n t only a portion of to tal retail s a le s . Check paym ents (d eb its) are reported monthly by
all or a sam ple of commercial banks. The data for d e p o sits and b u sin e ss lo an s provided by weekly
reporting banks are monthly averages of w eekly data. D eposits include time d e p o sits and demand
d e p o s its other than interbank and U. S. Government, le s s cash item s in p ro c e ss of co llection.

la te s t month, which i s a two-month
