Won^4 BUSINESS STATISTICS
JL HE STATISTICS here are a continuation of the data published in the 1957 edition of BUSINESS STATISTICS, biennial Statistical Supplement
to the SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS. That volume (price $2) contains monthly (or quarterly) data for the years 1953 through 1956 and
monthly averages for all years back to 1929 insofar as available; it also provides a description of each series and references to sources of monthly
figures prior to 1953. Series added or significantly revised since publication of the 1957 BUSINESS STATISTICS are indicated by an asterisk (*) and a
dagger (f), respectively; certain revisions for 1956 issued too late for inclusion in the aforementioned volume appear in the monthly SURVEY
beginning with the July 1957 issue. Except as otherwise stated, the terms "unadjusted" and "adjusted" refer to adjustment for seasonal
variation.
Statistics originating in Government agencies are not copyrighted and may be reprinted freely. Data from private sources are provided
through the courtesy of the compilers, and are subject to their copyrights.
[Averages for the year 1957 are provided in the May 1958 issue of the SURVEY)
Unless otherwise stated, statistics through 1956 and
descriptive notes are shown in the 1957 edition of
