The Data
T h ese data are presented as an aid for the a n alysis of
economic developments in the Central M ississip p i Valley.
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 a n a ly sis
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
se rie s.
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 flu c­
tuations, the index of check payments is an average of the
indexes for three months and is centered on the middle month.
B a sic employment data are developed by the respective
State Employment Security Offices.
The data for total loans and total deposits are for mem­
ber banks only and are averages of data for the last Wednes­
day of the preceding month, 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.
The index is adjusted for
number of trading days in each month.

The consolidated employment indexes are based on com­
bined data from the metropolitan areas.
The consolidated
index for check payments is based on reports from the 8
metropolitan areas and 11 other centers and includes 138
respondent banks. The consolidated banking indexes include
all member banks 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 a sic state personal income figures are obtained from
B u sin ess Week, and farm cash receipts data are developed by
the U. S. Department of Agriculture.

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

3. Annual figures are totals for the year.
are cumulative (year to date).
4. Millions of dollars
