Note: The data in the first column are based on the revised loan classification;
beginning with the week ended July 8, 1959 changes in commercial and industrial
loans exclude loans to sales finance companies, and certain other nonbank financial
concerns. The cumulative figures in the columns for prior periods have been
adjusted only by the exclusion of those loans previously classified as to sales
finance companies. Thus, the three columns are not strictly comparable.
