B e c a u se of the com­
p le x ity of the econom ic p ro ce ss, a m ore meaningful a n a ly s is
can be made by co nsid ering the entire s e t of ind icato rs for
a p articu la r area rather than relying on any s in g le one.

s e r ie s .
A ll area data are presented in both unadjusted and adju sted -fo r-sea so n al-v a riatio n form. Index numbers are on a
1957-59 b a se .
In addition, in order to smooth e rra tic flu c ­

of com m ercial banks in each area.

debits to demand d ep o sit a cco u n ts, e xcep t interbank and U .S .

bined data from the m etropolitan a re a s .

Explanatory Comments

All employment data for the metropolitan areas pf Little Rock,
Fort Smith, and Pine Bluff and for the states of Mississippi and Missouri
have been revised to a 1969 benchmark level. Personal income data for
the states of Mississippi and Missouri have also been revised.
Revised data are not yet available for all states included in
this release. Therefore, the pages entitled "State Summary" are not
included.
The decline in payroll employment and the increase in the unem­
ployment rate in the Eighth District reflects in part major labor disputes
in the metropolitan areas of St. Louis, Memphis, and Evansville.
