Federal Reserve Board
Aug. 21,19 20.
BANK DEBITS

Below is given the Federal Reserve Board's weekly statement of debits to
individual account reported through the Federal Reserve Banks by over 150 of
the country's more important clearing houses. Transactions cover the weekly
periods ending Wednesday, Aug. 18 and Aug. 11 of the present year and Aug. 20,
1919. The statement closes with a recapitulation giving comparative figures
by Reserve Districts for cities reporting complete data for the three weeks
under review.
Aggregate debits to individual account reported by 153 clearing houses
totaled 8,542 millions, or 205 more than the week before, though a further de­
crease of 95 millions is shown for the clearing house banks in New York City.
All the other important centers, except Pittsburgh and Kansas City, report. ’
larger totals than for the preceding week, Debits to individual account for the
week under review were about 100 millions below the total for the corresponding
week in 1919* a decrease of 524 millions for New York City being largely offset
by an aggregate increase of 424 millions for the other 152 centers. Average
figures for the thirty-three weeks of the year were about 22 per cent larger
in 1920 than in 1919 for 147 centers outside of New York City for which uniform
information is available, but only about 6 ,3 per cent larger for the clearing
house banks in New York City.
