- 3 ANTHRACITE
Standard Industrial Classification Industries 1111, 12, 13, 14
Social Security Board Industries 1111, 13, 14, 15
This industry includes establishments primarily engaged in the extraction and
preparation, by screening and sizing, of anthracite from virgin deposits, from
breaker waste and from other sources by operating companies; and the working by
contractors of culm banks and strip-pit and underground mines. The industry as
defined by the Bureau is strictly comparable with the Pennsy1vania anthracite
industry as defined b; the Census of Mineral Industries, 1939. Semi-anthracite or
anthracite produced outside of Pennsylvania is included with bituminous coal in the
States where mined. The indexes and estimates cover only wage earners of producing
companies.
Indexes previously published on a 1929 base were adjusted to the Census of
ilines data for 1935. Adjustments have been made in the following indexes to the
Census of Mineral Industries for 1939 arid have been rebased; using the 1939 average
as 100 .

p rim a rily engaged in the ex tractio n of peat are included in the quarrying and
,
nonm etallic mining in d u stry . The bituminous coal industry conforms to the d e f in i­
tio n of the ind ustry used by the Bureau of the Census in i t s 1939 survey.
.

Indexes p revio u sly published fo r the bituminous coal mining ind ustry were
adjusted to data of the 1935 Census of Mines. The f\e\i s e r ie s has been adjusted to
