Tbs Data
These dote ore presented os on aid for the analysis of
economic developments in the Centro! M ississippi Volley.
The emphasis is on economic activity in the metropolitan
areas and five states completely or partially within the
Eighth Federal Reserve D istrict.
Because of the com­
plexity 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.
All area data are presented in both unadjusted and adjus ted-for-seasona 1-variation form. Index numbers are on a
1957-59 base. In addition, in order to smooth erratic fluc­
tuations, the index of chock payments is an average of the
indexes for three months and is centered on the middle month.
B asic employment data are developed by the respective
State Employment Security Offices.
The data for totai loans and total deposits of membor
banks are averages of data for the lasr Wednesday of the
preceding mon?k, the Wednesday preceding the 15th of the
current month, and the last Wednesday of the current month.

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, and the index is also adjusted for
number of trading days in each month.

The consolidated employment indexes are based on com­
bined data from the metropolitan aroos. The consolidated
index for check payments is based on reports from tho 8
metropolitan areas and 11 other centers and includes 138
respondent banks. The consolidated bonking indexes include
all member bonks in the Eighth Federal Reserve D istrict.

National data are from reports of the Department of Labor
and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

B asic state persona! income figures are obtained from
Business Week, and farm cash receipts data are developed by
the U. S. Department of Agriculture.

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

Notes:

3. Annual figures are totals for the year.
are cumulative (year to date).
4. Millions of dollars
n.a. -Not available

Employment data for Kentucky and Tennessee have been
revised to a 1968 benchmark level.
The instability of payroll employment in St. Louis during
the past six months reflects a number of major strikes.
The substantial increase in unemployment for Springfield
reflects the closing of a major plant.
