These data are presented as an aid for the analysis of economic developments in the Central
M ississippi V alley. The emphasis is on economic activity in the metropolitan centers. B ecause of
the complexity of the economic process, a more meaningful analysis can be made by considering the
entire set of indicators rather than relying on any single one. Moreover, there may be technical
shortcomings in some series.

A ll area 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 sa le s, and check payments are averages of the indexes for three
months, centered on the middle month.
The index of industrial use o f electric power is based on data provided to this Bank by
public utility companies, and by individual firms using self-generated power. Employment data are
developed by the respective State Employment Security O ffices. Sales figures are provided by
cooperating department stores in each center and represent only a portion of total retail sales.
Check payments are reported monthly by all or a sample of commercial banks in each area. Check
payments are debits to demand deposit accounts,,except interbank and U. S. Government accounts.
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, less cash items in process of collection .

The consolidated regional indexes are based primarily on combined data from the metropolitan
centers. The consolidated index for check payments is based on reports from the 7 metropolitan
areas and 15 other centers and includes 94 respondent banks. Department store sales include
reporting stores in the metropolitan areas and in 11 medium-size cities.

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
