The Data
These data are presented as an aid for the analysis
of economic developments in the Central Mississippi
ValleyThe emphasis is on economic activity in the
metropolitan areas.
Because of the complexity of the
economic process, a more meaningful analysis can be
made by considering the entire set of indicators for a
particular area 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 department store sales and
check payments are averages of the indexes for three
months and the index of value added by manufacture is an
average of five months. A ll of these indexes are centered
on the middle month.
Employment data are developed by the respective
State Employment Security Offices.
Estimates of value added by manufacture are based
on annual data for metropolitan areas provided by the
U. S. Department of Commerce and monthly data on in­
dustrial use of electric power provided by public utility
companies and individual firms using self-generated
power. (For a detailed explanation of estimation pro­
cedures, see the June 1964 monthly Review of this Bank.)

Sales figures are provided by cooperating depart­
ment 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 pay­
ments are debits to demand deposit accounts, except
interbank and U. S. Government accounts.
The data for business loans and deposits provided by
weekly reporting banks are monthly averages of weekly
data.
Deposits include time deposits and demand de­
posits other than interbank and U. S. Government, less
cash items in process of collection.
The consolidated regional indexes are based pri­
marily on combined data from the metropolitan areas. The
consolidated index for check payments is based on re­
ports 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 l l medium-size cities.
National data are from reports of the Department of
Commerce and the Board of Governors of the Federal R e­
serve System.
The Board’ s index of industrial pro­
duction is compared with the consolitated regional index
of value added by manufacture because a comparable
national series is not available on a monthly basis.

Footnotes for charts:
1. Five-month moving averages (except for latest two
months, which are averages of four months and three
months)
2. Federal Reserve index o f industrial production
3. Three-month moving averages (except latest month,
which is a two-month average)

4. Weekly reporting banks
5. Includes stores in Vincennes
6. A ll member banks
7. A ll commercial banks
