I have the honor to transmit herewith a bulletin summarizing data on
consumer income, expenditures, and savings in 10 cities during the years
1946 through 1949. Some of this information was published in preliminary
form in articles which appeared in the Monthly Labor Review. This bulletin
contains final summary data and detailed information not heretofore published.
The planning and conduct of field surveys in which these data were
obtained, and the preparation of tabular materials for this bulletin are the
work of many members of the Staff of the Bureau’s Division of Prices and
Cost of Living. Acknowledgment to individuals cannot be made without
fear of inadvertently omitting one or more important contributors to the
total effort.

Family Income, Expenditures, and Savings in 10 Cities

1946-49

Introduction
Family income, expenditures, and savings data
here presented were obtained by the Bureau of
Labor Statistics in studies conducted in 10 cities
for the years 1946 through 1949. Altogether,
postwar studies were made in 13 cities. The
results of surveys conducted in Birmingham, Ala.;
Indianapolis, Ind.; and Portland, Oreg. for the
year 1945, have been published previously.1 The
1945 surveys were the first of a series which the
Bureau proposed to conduct in 3 to 6 cities a year
until all 34 cities represented in the Consumers’
Price Index had been surveyed. The studies were
made in order to check the weights and prices used
in the C. P. I.
In January 1951, the weights in the C. P. I.
were adjusted to an estimated 1950 expenditure
pattern, based on the 1947-49 survey data, and
adjusted indexes were published back to January
1950. In 1949 the Bureau began a comprehensive
review and revision of the C. P. I. In connection
with this 3-year program, consumer expenditure
information for the year 1950 was collected in 91
cities throughout the country. When the revision
is completed these data will be summarized and
published for general use. The cities for which
data are given in this bulletin, were not included
among the 91 cities surveyed for 1950.
In the 4 years 1946-49, the American consumer
experienced the severest inflation in the history of
the American economy. Inflationary forces, held
in check by the wartime economic stabilization
program, resulted in violent price rises when con­
trols were removed after July 1946. High con­
sumer income and pent-up purchasing power in
the form of accumulated wartime savings increased
the pressure of demand for consumer goods. This
demand was not satisfied entirely until late in 1948
i See Bureau of Labor Statistics Bulletin No. 956, Fam ily Income, Expendi­
tures, and Savings in 1945 (1949).




even though the American economy approached
the limits of capacity of materials, facilities, and
manpower. At that time supplies of most things
improved considerably, and put an end to the
rapid rise in prices. Production employment and
consumer income leveled out and remained rela­
tively stable after this period.
Family expenditure patterns for the years
covered by this bulletin reflect some of the changes
occurring in the transition from war to peace.
However, the data for the 10 cities presented here
do not permit adequate analysis of these changes.
Beginning in July 1946, price controls were lifted
rapidly from consumer goods and services, and
prices rose at the sharpest rate ever recorded. The
effect of these higher prices and accompanying
increases in supplies on consumer expenditures for
the second half of 1946 are averaged in the annual
figures for Milwaukee, Savannah, and Scranton.
In the early part of 1947 the rent control laws were
modified and late in 1947 consumer credit controls
were relaxed. Throughout 1947 and 1948 house­
hold appliances appeared in increasing volume in
consumer markets and supplies of all consumer
goods continuously improved. Employment and
incomes were rising to new highs and available
money was largely and freely spent to replenish
household inventories of goods that were either
scarce or were not available during the war. This
continuous increase in quantities of goods and
services bought at higher and higher prices is
averaged in the annual figures presented for 1947
(Manchester, Richmond, and Washington) and
for 1948 (Denver, Detroit, and Houston). By
1949, the economy generally had stabilized because
much of the war-created demand for consumer
goods had been satisfied and income and prices
remained high or decreased slightly. The figures
for Memphis reflect this high stable period of
consumer purchases.
In general, the 4 years were characterized by

1

an abundance of purchasing power in the hands
of consumers and by their eagerness to buy goods
as they reappeared in the markets. As production
returned to a peacetime basis, consumers drew on
savings or went into debt to replace prewar auto­
mobiles and other durables with new models, and,
on the average, family accounts showed net defi­
cits in most cases.
Thus, changes in consumer expenditure patterns
caused by the shifting economic conditions of the
period disguise differences from city to city and
from time to time because of normal differences
in community income level, climatic conditions,
and other factors usually associated with variances
in expenditures. Nevertheless, the data form an
important part of the general economic statistics
for this historical period and will be useful in
analysis of postwar developments.

Selection of Cities
In selecting the cities to be surveyed each year,
city size, geographic location, representativeness,
and demand for current expenditure data, to­
gether with budgetary considerations were major
determining factors. On the basis of these cri­
teria, the cities selected for survey were: for 1946,
Milwaukee, Wis.; Savannah, Ga.; and Scranton,
Pa.; for 1947, Manchester, N. H.; Richmond, V a .;
and Washington, D. C .;fo r 1948, Denver, Colo.;
Detroit, Mich.; and Houston, Tex.
B y 1949 plans were laid to conduct a large
Nation-wide survey for 1950 to be used in a com­
prehensive review and revision of the C. P. I.2
It was decided, therefore, that only one city should
be surveyed for 1949 data and that in addition to
obtaining useful information, the study should
serve to test collection and processing methods to
be used in the 1950 survey. Memphis, Tenn.,3was
chosen to be adequately representative of larger
urban places, because of its diversified industry
and heterogeneous population, yet it was small
enough and in a favorable location to allow ade­
quate control and observation of the test survey.

Selection of the Sample Within Cities
The sample units were selected at random from
lists of dwellings prepared for the Bureau’s Dwell­

ing Unit Survey 4and supplemented by field inves­
tigation to include rooms in lodging houses, hotels,
employee quarters of institutions, and new con­
struction. Whenever a dwelling unit was found
to house more than one “ economic family” 5 each
family was included in the sample.

Reliability of the Data
The data here presented are derived from reports
obtained from relatively small samples of families
and single consumers selected to be representative
of the total populations of each city. The data,
therefore, are subject to sampling variability.
Data based on small sample surveys often exhibit
irregularities which might not occur in surveys of
wider coverage. These irregularities appear most
frequently in averages of expenditures that are
extremely variable, as expenditures for medical
care which depend on illness occuring in a partic­
ular year. They may also appear in expenditures
such as for food, which might be expected to in­
crease directly with family income.
* For a detailed description of the sampling design, see The Rent Index:
Part 2—M ethodology of Measurement, M LR January 1949 (also reprinted
as Serial No. R. 1947).
6For definition, see p. 4.

The sampling variability of a percentage figure
depends on both the size of the percentage and the
size of the total on which it is based. The vari­
ability of an average depends on the size and shape
of the distribution from which it is derived. Vari­
ous statistical methods may be used to estimate the
amount of sampling variability in the sample
results. Coefficients of variation, based on the
results of the 1934-36 survey of money disburse­
ments of wage earners and clerical workers, were
calculated and published in bulletins 6 presenting
these data, and they will serve to indicate the
nature of the variability in the data.
In addition to sampling variability, the data are
subject to errors of response and nonreporting,
because most of the information given is based on
memory rather than records. Because of the
tendency of respondents to forget irregular sources
of income and expenditures for day-to-day living,
the memory factor probably results in under­
reporting. No estimate of the probable errors in
these data has been made because such errors
cannot be easily measured. Averages and per­
centages here presented, therefore, are those
yielded by the original reports with the following
exceptions:
In the 1948 survey of Denver, Detroit, and
Houston, a special analysis was made of the dis­
tribution of families and single consumers who
were selected in the sample, but who refused or
were unable to provide usable information. It
was found that the sample returns under-repre­
sented single consumers, and that the income
distribution of single consumers who completed
reports differed somewhat from that of the group
that did not provide information. The income
distribution of all single consumers and families
combined as given in table 1 has been adjusted
for this discrepancy. However, average expendi­
tures, income, and savings in tables 2 through 12
are based on the unadjusted data.
The 1947 data for Washington were adjusted
to correct for a discrepancy in the proportion of
white and Negro families in the sample results.
Tabulations of the income, savings, and expendi­
ture data were made for white and Negro families
separately and were combined at each income
level using Bureau of the Census population
figures.

M oney Disbursements of Wage Earners and Clerical Workers.

Computation of Averages
The averages given in this report are based on
all families in a class, whether or not they pur­
chased a particular item in the survey year.
Average expenditures of families purchasing a
particular item may be computed from data given
in the tables by dividing the average expenditure
for all families by the percentage of families
purchasing the item.
The upper limit of net income after payment of
personal taxes for which separate averages are
shown, varies from $6,000 for Savannah and $7,500
for Scranton, Milwaukee and Manchester, to
$10,000 for the remaining six survey cities. This
variation in the income grouping was suggested
by the nature of the data itself, since the number
of cases at the higher income levels was too few
and the errors in the data too great to yield re­
liable averages. In all cases, over 95 percent of
families of two or more persons in each city were
included within the income limits chosen.

Definitions
Economic Family
' The sampling unit defined for these studies is
the “ economic family,” which may be either a
family of two or more persons or a single consumer.
An economic family of two or more is a group of
persons usually living in the same household and
dependent on a common or pooled income for the
major items of expense. The single consumer is a
person who is financially independent of any family
group, living either as a separate household or as a
roomer in a private home, lodging house, or hotel.
In the great majority of cases, the members of
an economic family are related by blood, marriage,
or adoption; groups of unrelated persons who share
both income and expenses are seldom found. In
applying the concept of an economic family, re­
lated persons living in one household were con­
sidered as forming two or more economic families
when the separation of their finances appeared to
be clearly defined. Unmarried sons and daugh­
ters living with their parents were not considered
separate economic families unless their status in
the household was clearly comparable with that
of a roomer. Normally, working children who

4



pay a specified sum for “ room and board’ ’ either
receive without charge many services financed by
other members of the family, such as use of the
family car, personal laundry, etc., or contribute
in excess of their share to cover family living ex­
penses. Parents with some income who live in
the household of a son or daughter present a
similar situation for interpretation.
Two families or single consumers who lived in
one dwelling and shared household expenses but
did not pool incomes were considered separate
economic families.
A family member working away from home
during the survey period, who contributed with
some regularity to the family support and came
home frequently, was treated as a member of the
economic family, unless he was living in a military
camp, post, or reservation.
A child living away at school was considered a
member of the economic family if the parents pro­
vided the major part of his support. Other per­
sons supported by contributions from the family
income but not living in the household were not
considered as members of the family.
Economic Families Eligible for Survey
Field collections of data for the various surveys
were made during the spring following the year
to which the information related— in some sur­
veys as late as M ay.7 The composition of the
family and the record of income, savings, and ex­
penditures, however, were taken as of the survey
year. Averages in this report relate only to fami­
lies and single consumers that existed as economic
families during all of the survey year.
These full-year economic families, however, may
have had part-year family members—persons who
joined or left the family during the year. Income
savings and expenditures for part-year family
members were recorded for that portion of the
survey year in which they were part of the family,
and were combined with the total year data for
the rest of the family.
7 Periods during which the surveys were made: Milwaukee, February and
March 1947; Savannah, February through first week of June 1947; Scranton,
February through first week of April 1947; Manchester, February through
April 1948; Richmond, February through first week of April 1948; Washing­
ton, February through first week of June 1948; Denver, mid-January through
April 1949; Detroit, February through April 1949; Houston, mid-January
through mid-April 1949; Memphis, February through April 1950.

Family Size
The family size was recorded in terms of equiv­
alent full-year members, with 52 weeks of family
membership considered equivalent to 1 person, 26
weeks equivalent to 0.5 person, etc.
Family Living Arrangements
Families who occupied a house, flat, or apart­
ment with cooking facilities and who prepared
meals at home during the survey year were con­
sidered “ housekeeping” families. Two or more
families who shared an entire dwelling, including
the kitchen, were classified in the “ housekeeping”
group. A few families who occupied a room or
rooms with more or less temporary arrangement
for cooking, such as a hot plate, “ light housekeep­
ing” facilities, or “ kitchen privileges,” were not
included with “ housekeeping” families.
Families who occupied a room or rooms and
paid a set sum for meals served at a given place,
or who bought all meals at restaurants during
the year, were classified as “ rooming and board­
ing” families.
Families who occupied a dwelling with cooking
facilities part of the year and a room without
cooking facilities part of the year were classified
as having “ other” living arrangements.
Tenure
Families have been classified into three major
tenure groups as follows:
Owner: living in owned home all year.
Renter: living in house, flat, or apartment
all year and paying rent all year.
Other: Roomers; families who moved from
rented to owned homes or from owned to
rented homes during the year; and renting
families who received one or more months’
free rent during the year.
Income
Income data were obtained in these surveys
primarily to provide a basis for summarization
and analysis of family expenditures with respect
to differences in economic levels. Because money
income after payment of personal taxes most
nearly represents spendable income, it was used




as the basis for classifying families. In order to
obtain as accurate a record of family income as
possible, detailed information on wage and salary
income before and after payroll deductions was
obtained for each earner in the family. The
“ before tax” income from other sources for all
members of the economic family was also recorded
in detail, together with a record of tax payments
and other income deductions.
M on ey Incom e

The components of money income in these
surveys were specified on the schedule form as
follows: Wages; salaries; earnings from indepen­
dent business or profession; receipts from roomers
and boarders; interest and dividends; profits from
enterprises owned but not operated by the family;
net rents and royalties; unemployment insurance
benefits; Federal old-age and survivors’ insurance
benefits; other retirement benefits and industrial
pensions; income from annuities; regular contri­
butions from persons not in the family; direct
relief payments; and other money income.
E a r n in g s .
“ Wages and salaries” represent net
receipts from employment, however short the
period worked, including all sums withheld by the
employer for insurance and retirement funds, the
old-age and surivors’ insurance deduction, and the
unemployment insurance deduction. Amounts
received from odd jobs and piecework, casual
earnings, tips, and bonuses were recorded in the
totals for wages and salaries.
Net earnings from wages and salaries were de­
termined by deducting from these totals the fol­
lowing items of occupational expenses: Dues to
unions and professional associations, including the
cost of technical publications; supplies, equipment,
or tools paid for by the employee; traveling ex­
penses and any portion of automobile operation
expenses incurred in connection with the occupa­
tion. Transportation to and from work was not
considered as an occupational expense.
Net “ earnings from independent business 8 or
profession” were recorded as the net profits from
a profession or a business owned and managed by
the family. Details on gross income and business
expenditures were obtained only when necessary
* Outside salesmen or insurance agents working on their own account or
on a commission basis were considered self-employed.

to determine net earnings. The net amounts in­
cluded the value of goods drawn from stock for
family use. (These goods were also entered as
purchases under the appropriate expenditure cate­
gories.) Income from “ enterprises owned but not
operated by the family” were recorded as a
separate income item.

Respondents were asked to report gross “ receipts
from roomers and boarders.” Net receipts were
determined by deducting an estimate of food ex­
pense from the total income reported (this esti­
mated expense was also deducted from the
expenditure for food). No attempt was made to
deduct the cost of housing provided to lodgers.
If the estimated expense for boarders’ food was
larger than the amount reported received from
the boarders, the net income from boarders was
considered zero.
P r o p e r t y in c o m e .
“ Interest and dividends”
was defined to include all amounts received in
that form from stocks, bonds, bank accounts,
trust funds, paid-up insurance policies, etc.
“ Net rents” represented gross rents from any
property rented to others by the family, less ex­
penses that were actually paid for current upkeep
of the property. (Expenses incurred but not
paid were not deducted; outlays for improvements
or additions were considered an increase in
assets.)
D ir e c t
r e l ie f
p a y m e n t s .
Money received
from public and private relief agencies, mothers’
pensions, old-age pensions, and aid to the blind
were included in this group.
O t h e r
m o n e y
in c o m e .
Workmen’s compen­
sation benefits, alimony, prizes, rewards, and
gambling gains, etc., were included in this group.
Other M on ey Receipts

Inheritances, occasional large gifts, and other
such “ windfall” payments, including terminal
leave pay for members of the Armed Forces,
were recorded separately and were not included
with money income.
No record of gifts and inheritances in the form
of real estate, securities, or other property was
made unless such property had been sold during
the survey period. In that case the transaction
was recorded as though the amount received from
the sale was a money gift or inheritance.

Expenditures for Current Consumption
Expenditures for family living were reported in
detail under 15 categories of expense: Food (in­
cluding alcoholic beverages); housing; fuel, light,
and refrigeration;9 household operation; furnish­
ings and equipment; clothing; automobile; other
transportation; personal care; medical care; recre­
ation; tobacco; reading; education; and miscella­
neous.
The total cost of commodities or services bought
was included whether or not payment was made
during the period of the survey. All purchases of
durable goods made during the year (except prin­
cipal payments and payments for improvements
on homes) were considered current expenditures.1
0
Financing charges and interest on installment and
other credit purchases, and shipping and delivery
charges were considered part of the expenditure
for the item to which they applied. Discounts and
trade-in allowances were deducted from the gross
price.
Details on expenditures during the survey year
were obtained for all categories of goods and serv­
ices except food. Experience in surveys of this
type has shown that it is not possible to obtain
by the interview method reliable reports on the
amounts spent for specified food items over periods
of more than a week or two. Therefore, for the
annual report, estimates were obtained of the total
amount spent for food at home and away from
home, and a detailed record was made of the items
of food purchased during the week preceding the
interview.
The nature of the goods and services rather than
the conditions under which expenditures were
made generally governed the classification of ex­
penditures. For example, traveling expense for
vacations was included under automobile and
other transportation rather than recreation; board
and room for children away at school were classed
as expenditures for food and housing rather than
for education.
The “ miscellaneous” group included interest on
debts incurred for family living; bank service
charges, including safe deposit box; legal expenses
9 Since apartm ent rents in cities frequently cover payment for fuel, light,
and/or refrigeration, expenditures for these items have been combined with
those for housing in all tables showing the summary of expenditures.
10 If an automobile was purchased partly for family use and partly for
business use, only a portion of the expense for purchase chargeable to family
use was considered family expense. The remainder was considered an invest­
ment in business (an increase in assets).

connected with household affairs; losses concerned
directly with the household, including amount of
installments paid during the survey period on
repossessed furniture; funeral expenses, including
upkeep and purchase of cemetery lot; and expense
for other items, such as dues to political and to
cooperative associations, marriage licenses, and
flowers for the wedding of a family member; gar­
den expenses for seeds and fertilizers; and feed for
chickens and other animals for family food supply.
Gifts and Taxes
Included under “ gifts and contributions,” are
donations to churches and religious organizations,
welfare agencies, war relief agencies, and educa­
tional funds; contributions for the support of rela­
tives not members of the economic family; and
amounts spent for gifts to friends and relatives
outside the economic family.
“ Personal taxes” included Federal and State in­
come taxes on individuals, poll taxes, and taxes
on such personal property as furnishings and jew­
elry. The personal tax figures included all taxes
of the types specified that fell due during the sur­
vey period, whether or not they were paid (unpaid
taxes were also entered as an increase in liabilities).
Tax refunds received during the survey year were
considered as deductions from current taxes.
Other taxes, such as sales taxes, excise taxes, and
automobile and real estate taxes, were included as
part of family living expenditure for the commod­
ities and services to which they apply. Taxes on
business property were deducted as an expense in
estimating net income.
No sales tax was in effect in 1946 in Milwaukee,
Savannah, and Scranton; in 1947 in Richmond and
Manchester; or in 1948 in Houston.
A Maryland State sales tax of 2 percent in effect
in 1947 was not included in the average expendi­
tures for the Washington area since the relatively
small proportion of goods and services bought in
the Maryland suburbs could not be estimated.
In 1948, there was a 2 percent State sales tax
and a 1 percent city sales tax in Denver. The
city tax coverage changed during the year. For
the first 7 weeks of 1948, taxes were collected on
grocery and restaurant food and prescription
drugs, but these commodities were exempted for
the rest of the year. The tax applied to these
items was figured at 2.13 percent.




In 1948, a 3 percent retail sales tax was in effect
in Detriot, and in 1949 a 2 percent sales tax was
in effect in Memphis.
In cities where a sales tax was in effect, except
in Memphis where sales tax was included in the
reported amount spent, expenditures were re­
ported without tax by the respondent.
The sales tax was then computed and added to
the total expenditure for the affected item. This
procedure may have resulted in an overestimate
of the sales tax since some families may have un­
intentionally included sales tax when reporting
annual estimated expenditures for some items.
Changes in A ssets and Liabilities
The difference between the family’s income and
the other money receipts, and its outlays for cur­
rent living, gifts, insurance, and personal taxes
for the survey year is accounted for by the net
changes in assets and liabilities, except for allow­
able reporting errors.1 Each economic family
1
included in the survey was asked to report any
increases or decreases during the year in each of
its assets and liabilities. Only changes resulting
from money transactions, such as the purchase and
sale of property were recorded. Increases or
decreases in the market value of real estate,
securities, and other property held by the family
were not considered.
“ Assets” included bank accounts and money on
hand; investments in business and real estate;
Government bonds and other securities; improve­
ments on owned homes or other real estate; and
loans made to others, lia b ilitie s ” included
amounts payable on mortgages; notes due to banks,
insurance companies, and individuals; amounts due
to loan companies and credit associations; balances
owing on installment purchases; charge accounts
and other bills due; and rents and taxes due.
Amounts received from the sale of assets, the
settlement of life-insurance policies, and borrow­
ing were recorded in the statement of changes in
family assets and liabilities.
The net change in assets and liabilities during
n Because of the difficulty experienced by respondents in accounting com­
pletely for receipts (i. e., income, other money receipts, and funds made
available through liquidation of assets or through credit) and disbursements
(i. e., outlays for current consumption, gifts, and taxes, and money used to
increase assets or decrease debts), a margin of tolerance was set up for dis­
crepancies between the two. A schedule was considered acceptable if the
difference was less than 10 percent of receipts or of disbursements, whichever
was the larger. For Memphis, this tolerance was increased to 15 percent.

7

the period was calculated as the algebraic sum of
all the changes. A positive net change, when
total increases in assets and total decreases in lia­
bilities exceed the total decreases in assets and
total increases in liabilities, was recorded as a net
surplus. A negative change in all assets and
liabilities was called a net deficit.

on “ Total current expenditure” less “ Education
and other” expenses.
In making comparisons of the expenditures of
wage earner and clerical worker families with
those of all families, the adjustments listed below
should be made to the expenditures for all families,
as shown in table 2, page 14.
1. Food: Subtract the expenditure for alco­
holic beverages as shown in table 3.
2. Housing: Subtract the expenditure for
fuel, light, refrigeration, and water as shown
in table 5.
3. Fuel, Light, Refrigeration, and Water:
Subtract the expenditure for water as
shown in table 5.
4. Household Operation: Add the expendi­
ture for water as shown in table 5.
5. Tobacco: Add the expenditure for alco­
holic beverages as shown in table 3.
6. Recreation: Add the expenditure for read­
ing as shown in table 2.

Expenditures of Wage Earner and Clerical
Worker Families
For the 7 cities surveyed from 1947 through
1949, special tabulations were made of the major
categories of expenditure for families of wage
earners and clerical workers with incomes under
$10,000. The average expenditures shown in
table A were used to determine the relative im­
portance of the major groups of goods and services
for the interim adjustment of the C. P. I. in those
cities. The relative importance figures shown in
table 6 of BLS Bulletin No. 1039, Interim Ad­
justment of Consumers’ Price Index, were based

1 See table 1, footnote 1.
2 Expenditures for automobiles used entirely for business are excluded.
3 In the case of automobile used partly for business, the family was asked to estimate the proportion of
automobile expense chargeable to business.
This proportion was used to allocate expenditures to family and business use of car. In 1946 and 1947
this allocation was not made for separate items of operation expenditure.
4 Expenditure for purchase of automobile was derived by deducting trade-in allowance from the gross
purchase price which included Federal excise tax and sales tax, and financing charges other than insurance.
5 Includes expense for washing and lubricating car, battery service, anti-freeze, new parts, repairs to
motor, body, etc., fees for car inspection.
