INTRODUCTION
The SURVEY OF CURRBNT BUSINESS is designed to
present each month a picture of the business situation
by setting forth the principal facts regarding the various lines of trade and industry. At quarterly intervals
detailed tables are published giving, for each item,
monthly figures for the past two years and yearly comparisons, where available, back to 1913. In the intervening months the more important comparisons only
are given in the table entitled u Trend of business
movements'* (p. 39).
The present quarterly issue contains the complete
figures for the monthly movements since September,
1921? and the monthly averages for earlier years as
far as tlie data are available.
ADVANCE SHEETS

Realizing that current statistics are highly perishable and that to be of use they must reach the business
man at the earliest possible moment, the department
has arranged to distribute advance leaflets three times
each month to those subscribers who request them.
The leaflets are usually mailed on Saturdays, the first
being issued about the 15th of the month, giving such
information as has been received up to that time*
Further sets of sheets are mailed in the two following
weeks, each giving those figures received during the
current week. The information contained in these
leaflets is also published in "Commerce Reports,"
issued weekly by the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic
Commerce. The complete bulletin is distributed as
quickly as it can be completed and printed.
BASIC DATA

The figures reported in the accompanying tables are
very largely those already in existence. The chief
function of t/he department is to bring together these
data which, if available at all, are scattered in hundreds of different publications. A portion of these
data are collected by Government departments, other
figures are compiled by technical journals, and still
others are reported bj trade associations.
INDEX NUMBERS

To facilitate comparison between different items and
render the trend of a movement more apparent, index
or relative numbers have been calculated. The index
numbers enable the reader to see at a glance the general
upward or downward tendency of a movement which
can not so easily be grasped from the actual figures.
In computing these index numbers the last pre-war
year, 1913, or in some instances a five-year average,
1909-1913, has been used as a base equal to 100
wherever possible. In many instances comparable

figures for the pre-war years are not available, and in
such cases the year 1919 has usually been taken as
the base. For some industries 1919 can not be
regarded as a proper base, due to extraordinary conditions in the industry, and some more representative
period has been chosen. In a few cases other base
periods are used for special reasons. In all cases the
base period is clearly indicated.
The index numbers are computed by allowing the
monthly average for the base year or period to equal
100. If the movement for a current month is greater
than the base, the index number will be greater than
100 and vice versa. The difference between 100 and
the index number will give at once the per cent increase
or decrease compared with the base period. Thus an
index number of 115 means an increase of 15 per cent
over the base period, while an index number of 80
means a decrease of 20 per cent from the base.
Index numbers may also be used to calculate the
approximate percentage increase or decrease in a movement from one period to the next. Thus if an in^lex
number at one month is 120 and for a later month it
is 144 there has heen an increase of 20 per cent.
BUSINESS INDICATORS

The diagrams on page 2 have been prepared to
facilitate comparisons between a few of the more
important business movements. The lines are plotted
on wl^at are known as ratio charts (logarithmic scale).
These charts show the percentage increase and allow
direct comparisons between the slope of one curve and
that of any other curve regardless of what part of the
diagram it is located in; that is, a 10 per cent increase
in ah item is given the same vertical movement
whether its curve is near the bottom or near the top
of the chart.
The difference between this and the ordinary form
of a chart can be made clear by an example. If a
certain item has an index number of 400 in one month
and it increases 10 per cent, its index number will be
440, and on an ordinary chart the next month would
be plotted 40 scale points higher than the preceding
month. Another movement with an index number
of, say 50, also increases 10 per cent, making its index
number 55. On the ordinary (arithmetic) scale this
item would rise only 5 points, whereas the previous
item rose 40 points, yet each showed the same percentage increase. The ratio charts avoid this difficulty and give to each of the two movements exactly
the same vertical rise, and hence the slopes of the two
lines are directly comparable. The ratio charts compare percentage changes, while the arithmetic charts
compare absolute changes.

This issue presents practically complete data for the month of March and also, on page 30, items covering April
received up to May 14. As most data covering a particular month's business are not available until from IS to SO dam
after the close of the month, a complete picture of that month's operations, including index numbers, cumulative totals*
text, and charts, can not be presented in printed form under 45 days after its close, but the advance leaflets described above
give considerable information as mrly as 15 days after its elm* and present almost every week the latest dmta

SUMMARY FOR MARCH
(See note at bottom of opposite cover page)

Manufacturing activity in general increased over
February but the level of industrial output in March
was below a year ago.
Increases in the output of
manufactures were recorded in pig iron, steel ingots,
steel sheets, locomotives, refined oils, shoes, automobiles, automobile tires, paper boxes, lumber, cement,
flooring, brick, enamel sanitary ware, and wood chemicals. Mineral output in March registered increases
in copper, zinc, lead, petroleum, and anthracite coal
while the output of bituminous coal declined in
March. Mill consumption of silk, cotton, wool, and
tin declined from February and a year ago. Unfilled
steel orders at the end of March were lower than on
February 29, while the weighted index of unfilled
orders, based on 1920 as 100, at 61 for March 31, may
be compared with 63 for February 29, and 101 a year
ago.
95154°—24




Retail sales of mail-order houses, department stores,
and 10-cent chains increased seasonally in March but
in general retail trade was .below a year ago. Wholesale trade in all important lines also increased seasonally in March, while the combined index for that
month reflects decreased activity from a year ago.
Wholesale prices, retail food prices, and the cost of
living declined in March.
Business failures increased in March while industrial
stock prices averaged lower during the month. Bank
debits increased seasonally.
The net available daily average freight car surplus
for the last week of March totaled 247,937 cars as
against 130,282 cars for the same period in February
and a net shortage of 54,790 cars a year ago. Car
loadings in March averaged 914,734 cars weekly as
against 908,404 in February and 916,492 a year ago.

BUSINESS INDICATORS
The following table gives comparative index numbers for a selected list of important business movements. It is believed
that this table will prove useful, because it separates out from the large mass of material a comparatively small number of items
which are often regarded as indicative of business in general.
The table has been divided into two parts, the first containing those items for which index numbers can be calculated, using
1913 as a base. The second part contains items for which comparable data back to 1913 are not available. This latter group of
index numbers is calculated by letting the 1919 monthly average equal 100. Care should therefore be exercised in comparing the
absolute value of the two sets of data. In either group, however, the upward or downward trend of the index numbers, compared
to previous months, does reflect the present tendency in each item and will give a basis for business judgment.
Where available at the time of going to press, May 14, April indicators have here been included, thus hiiiigiug Ihfs
table up to date. It should be noted that the charts on page 2 show March data as the latest plotted.

stood at 123, as against 117 in February and 129 a year
ago. The output of manufactures, by major groups,
shows foodstuffs at 105 against 105 in February and
107 a year ago; textiles at 99 against 106 and 130; iron
and steel at 141 against 128 and 145; lumber at 138

iron and steel, at 1S3 against 166 and 157; and tobacco
at 102 against 97 and 105.
Mineral production, as measured by the combined
index on 1919 as abase, stood at 120for March as against
121 in February and 125 a year ago. Except for
bituminous coal and silver, the output of all products
of the mine for which comparable data are avaliable
increased over February, while with the exception of

1920

Animal marketings declined in March, the total
index, based on 1919 as 100, being 92 in March as
against 105 in February and 114 a year ago. Increases over a year ago were registered in the marketings of wool, fish, and milk, while the movement to
market of cattle and calves, hogs, sheep, eggs and
poultry was smaller in March than in the same period
of 1923. Crop marketings on the same base were
computed at 70 for Mnreh as against 87 in February
and 75 for a year ago. Increased movement to market
over a year ago was registered in.corn, onions, cabbage,
celery, apples, citrus fruits, pears, and tobacco, while
March marketings of wheat, oats, barley, rye, rice,
sweet potatoes, tomatoes, strawberries, and hay were
in smaller volume than a year ago.
COMMODITY STOCKS
Commodity stocks as seen from the weighted index
of 45 commodities, trended upward in a seasonal
movement, the index based on 1919 as 100 being
computed at 147 for March as against 140 in February
and 132 a year ago. Taking seasonal variations into
account, stocks were the same as in February at 135,
based on 1910 as 100. On page 22 is given a diagram
showing the course of commodity stocks by major
groups since January, 1919, after due adjustment has
been made for seasonal conditions. For purposes of
comparison the unadjusted index for each group is
also plotted. The data upon which this chart is
based, were published on page 28 of the April issue of
the SURVEY (No.



32).

SALES

Sales by manufacturers in March were generally
lower than in either the previous month or a year ago.
Declines from February and a year ago occurred in
now orders for freight cars, structural steel, finished
cotton goods, knit underwear, merchant pig iron,
stokers, brass faucets, flooring, clay fire brick, and
enameled sanitary ware, while sales of fine cotton
goods, steel castings, steel sheets, locomotives, power
pumps, tubular plumbing goods, leather belting,
southern pine, and California pine lumber, although
below a year ago, were larger in March than in the
previous month. The index of unfilled orders on
manufacturers' books, based on the 1920 monthly
average as 100, stood at Gl at the end of March as
against 63 on February 29 and 101 a year ago.
Wholesale trade in general increased seasonally in
March, but the general index of this movement was
considerably below a year ago. Based on the value
of sales in 1919 as 100, the general index of wholesale
trade was computed at 78 for March as compared
with 77 in February and 85 a year ago. All lines for
which comparable data are available registered a

the inward movement of cattle hides which customarily represents about one-half of the total imports of
hides and skins into this country. Exports of sole
leather in March declined from both the previous
month and March a year ago while the outward
movement of upper leather in March registered an

amount of liabilities over February, 1924, and March,
1923. The increase in defaulted liabilities of $61,000,000 as compared with February and almost $50,000,000 as compared with March, 1924, was largely due to

PAGES TO SAVE IN EARLY ISSUES
Continuing and revising the data first present eel in
the February, 1924, issue (No. 30) of the SURVEY OF
CURRENT BUSINESS there is given below the list of
pages which may be saved from early issues in order
to secure a complete list of data not subsequently
published. This list does not include the quarterly
issues, as beginning with the May, 1922, issue (Xo.9),
three or four months have been taken from the earlier
figures each quarter, and it is thus advisable to keep
each quarterly number from that time. The list of
pages to save, omitting quarterly numbers, is given
below. Further details regarding individual items are
given in the sections following, describing special data,
discontinued data, and monthly data prior to 1021.

TREND OP BUSINESS MOVEMENTS
The following table contains a summary of the monthly figures, designed to show the trend in important industrial and commercial movements. The numerical data for the latest months are given and in addition index numbers for the last four months
and for two corresponding months of a year ago. In many lines thefiguresdo not lend themselves readilv to statistical uniformity
due to lateness of their publication or publication at other than monthly intervals; therefore the following explanations of the
various headings are offered to make clear such distinctions and in general to facilitate the use of the table*
February, 19%.—This column gives the February figures corresponding to those for March shown in the next column—ia
other words, coyer the previous month.
March, 1924.—In this column are given thefigurescovering the month of March, or, as in the case of stocks, etc., the situation on March 29 or April 1.
Cumulative total from January 1 through latest month.—These columns set forth, for those items that properly can be cumulated,
the cumulative totals for the three months ending March, 1923 and 1924, respectively, except where the March, 1924,
figures are lacking in which case the cumulative totals for the first two months of 1923 and 1924 arc given.

Percentage increase (-J-) or decrease (—) cumulative, 1923-24 from 1922-23.—This column shows the per cent by which the

cumulated total for the three months ending March, 1924, is greater (+) or less ( - ) than the total for the corresponding
period ended March, 1923.
Base year or period.—For purposes of comparison with a previous more or less normal period, all items, so far as possible, are
related to such a period by index numbers. The period taken for each item, called the base, is the monthly average of
the year or period stated in this column. Wherever possible, the year 1913 is taken as a ba.se, and if no pre-war figure*
are available, 1919 is usually taken to avoid using a war year as a basis. In some cases it will be noted that figures were
not available prior to 1920 or even 1921, and that sometimes a month, or an average of a few months, has to be used
rather than a year's average. Also, for some industries, 1919 would not be a proper base on account of extraordinary
conditions in the industry and therefore some more representative year has been chosen.
Index numbers.—In order to visualize the trend of each movement, index or relative numbers are given for the last four months
and for two corresponding months of a year ago. These index numbers are computed by allowing the monthly average
for the base period, usually 1913 or 1919, to equal 100. If the movement for a current month is greater than the base
the index number will be greater than 100. If the converse is true the index number will be less than 100. The difference
between 100 and any index number gives at once the per cent increase or decrease compared with the base period. Index
numbers may also be used to compute the approximate per cent increase or decrease from one month to the next.
Percentage increase (+) or decrease (—) March from February.—The last column shows the per cent increase or decrease of
the figure for the last month compared with the preceding month.

Data furnished by the Enameled Sanitary Ware Manufacturers* Association and said to represent approximately 98 per cent of the total output in the United States.
/ " ° association
explains that orders shipped are the best current index of the industry. Orders received are likely to pyramid during periods of great activity to be for
f ™ . b v cancellations if the demand drops off. Stocks always increase during the winter and spring months because more efficient wonc at the enameling ovens can be
aone in cold weather and manufacturers operate at maximum capacity as long as they canfinanceoperations and find storage capacity for the products.
small ware includes lavatories, sinks, and miscellaneous.
Average of 8 months, May to December, inclusive.

,
on
* Represents money held outside tho Treasury and Federal Reserve System. The revised yearly figures are as of June 30 and are taken from the Secretary *s Annual
Beport (1923), p 555
* Short term'debt includes issues maturing within five years from tho particular date noted; a larpe increase in a particular month, such as in September, 1923 is usually
due not so much to an increase in indebtedness (absence of increase in the gross debt would show thU), but that tho maturity date of a certain bond issue has bucu brought
within five years. The increase in September, 1923 was due to the Third Liberty Loan being brought in this category. At present, besides the Third Liberty Loin, there
are included in tho short-term debt the following: Loan and tax certificates of indebtedness, Treasury savings securities and Tioasury notes. Debt on which interest has
ceased and interest-bearing debt redeemable at the pleasure of tho Government but not maturing within flvo years arc not included m this statement.

INDEX
Page numbers refer to data in detailed tables (57-229) only. Items in the table on "Trend of Business Movements" and
in the text are arranged in groups which should make reference easy without the necessity of an index. Note that only the page
containing the index number tables is given here. Where the numerical data for these items are in a separate table, they will
always be found on the page opposite the index numbers.
