This is one of a series of volumes presenting the findings of the 1933 Census of 
American Business. The statistics were collected in 1934 by a field canvass of wholesale 
establishments in every State, city, and county in the United States, with funds provided 
by the Federal Civil Works Administration. They cover the operations of wholesale estab- 
lishments during the year 1933. 

The volumes were prepared under the supervision of Fred A. Gosnell, Chief Statistician 
for the Census of American Business, by Theodore N. Beckman, in Charge of Wholesale Distri- 
bution, assisted by John Albright, Administrative Assistant.

CHAPTER I 

THE FIELD OF WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION 

In this volume and in Volumes II to VII, inclusive, are presented basic statistics on 
wholesale trade for the year 1933. The data were collected in 1934 in connection with the 
wholesale census, which was taken as a part of the Census of American Business. This vol- 
ume contains a series of uniform tables by functional types of operation and by kind-of- 
business classifications for the United States. In it are also included brief summaries 
for each of the States, principal cities, and counties. Tables similar to those for the 
United States are contained in Volumes II to VII inclusive, for States, arranged by geo- 
graphic divisions. Some of the material included in these volumes was first published in 
semi-final form in a series of State bulletins, one for each State, supplemented by a Sum- 
mary bulletin for the United States. To a more limited extent such data were also previous- 
ly published in a series of city bulletins, one for each city having in 1930 a population 
of 50,000 or more inhabitants. 

The volumes on Wholesale Distribution were prepared under the supervision of Fred A. 
Gosnell, Chief Statistician for the Census of American Business, by Theodore N. Beckman, in 
Charge of Wholesale Distribution, assisted by John Albright, Administrative Assistant. 

THE DISTRIBUTIVE PROCESS 

In the volume of Wholesale Distribution for 1929 published by the Bureau of the Cen- 
sus!/, the importance of merchandise distribution in our economic system was explained 
in some detail. Even before the depression, which began in 1929, a change in national em- 
phasis from production to distribution was readily discernible. The field of distribution, 
as a segment of our economic system, whether measured by the number of people engaged or 
employed therein, the volume of business involved, the number of enterprises, or the value 
added to goods reckoned by gross margins, is becoming increasingly important. For two de- 
cades it has been generally recognized by students of business that attention must be turn- 
ed somewhat from production technic to the problems involved in the distribution of goods. 

It has been asserted that many commodities reach the ultimate consumer at a cost sev- 
eral times the selling price of such articles at points of original production. Whether 
the distributive process involves the performance of unnecessary functions, results in duplica- 
tion of services, or is otherwise inefficiently operated, is difficult to say in the ab- 
sence of reliable, factual data relating to the structure, methods, policies, procedures, 
and costs of distribution. It is recognized, however, that the distributive process must 
be improved and that its outmoded methods must be supplanted in order that it may keep 
pace with the constant development in production technic and efficiency. This process must 
be Pltered and remolded if a satisfactory solution is to be secured to the multifarious 
problems arising out of a separation, both in time and space, of ultimate consumer from 
prime producer. The need for improvements in this field was further accentuated by the 
economic conditions prevailing since 1929, 

1/ Fifteenth Census of the United States: 1930, Distribution, Volume II, p. 3.

THE FIRST CENSUS OF DISTRIBUTION. — To fill part of the gap in our knowledge of the 
distributive process, the first Census of Distribution was taken by the Bureau of the Cen- 
sus in 1930, covering the operations of wholesale establishments and retail stores during 
1929. This was done in conformity with the act providing for the Fifteenth Decennial Cen- 
sus, approved June 18, 1929, by Congress. As a result of this endeavor much valuable in- 
formation was secured concerning the scope of activity of merchandising establishments, the 
employment they afforded, their volume of trade, costs of doing business and many other 
pertinent facts. This census served to clear the air of many misconceptions by supplying 
the first quantitative description of the marketing structure and its functioning; also by 
measuring the extent of the task and the approximate manner in which that task was being 
performed. The facts issued were generally hailed as a substantial contribution to know- 
ledge of the distribution mechanism. The principal flaw in the usefulness of these results 
was the inability to make comparisons with other periods and to ascertain trends; also it 
is now known that 1929 was not a representative year. 

THE CENSUS OF AMERICAN BUSINESS. — As a remedy to some of the deficiencies mentioned in 
the preceding paragraph, the second census of merchandising places of business for the year 
1933 was taken in 1934, with funds supplied by the Civil Works Administration. In taking 
the new census, known as the Census of American Business, approximately 15,000 white-collar 
workers were furnished temporary employment as enumerators, canvassing about 2,200,000 
places of business. Complete information was gathered from each of the establishments and 
assembled for every city, county, and State of continental United States. The schedules 
showed the number of persons employed in the business during the year, by months, by sex, 
and on a full-time and part-time basis; salaries and wages paid to the employees; total op- 
erating expenses incurred; net sales or operating receipts; value of stocks on hand; amount 
of business done on credit, etc. 

COMPARABILITY OF THE TWO CENSUSES. — Since the Census of American Business was similar 
in most respects to the 1929 Census of Distribution, a comparison of the two censuses — one 
during a year of prosperity and the other in a year of depression — depicts the shifts and 
adjustments in business between the two years. To facilitate comparisons in the wholesale 
figures every effort has been made to have classifications for 1933, both by type of estab- 
lishment and kind of business, similar to those presented for 1929. The two censuses, how- 
ever, are not exactly alike due largely to differences in canvass, coverage, and classifi- 
cation. The differences in canvass, as in Pennsylvania, were due largely to cond- 
itions over which the Bureau had no control. As to differences in coverage, establish.nents 
with annual sales of less than $1,000 or less than $500 in the case of assemblers and coun- 
try buyers) are not included in the 1933 figures but were included in 1929. On the other 
hand, cream stations are included in the figures for 1933 but were not included in any large 
extent in 1929. These latter differences would materially affect the number of establishments 
although they can have little influence on the volume of business. 

Differences in classification were due to the abbreviated schedule used in 1933 and to 
the methods used in classifying wholesale establishments. The 1929 schedules made provi- 
sion for comprehensive commodity information which was not called for on the form used in 
1933. Some shifts in classification may have resulted from the fact that the establish- 
ments were classified in 1933 primarily on the basis of the information contained in the 
report submitted for that year; in most cases no account was taken of the classification of 
the establishment in 1929. A certain latitude, therefore, must be allowed for variations 
between the kind-of-business classifications which may have been caused by lack of uniform- 
ity in phraseology used by enumerators throughout the country.

WHOLESALING AS A PART OF THE DISTRIBUTIVE PROCESS.— In the movement of goods from orig- 
inal production into industrial or ultimate consumption, a number of marketing functions 
must be performed. In the course of time certain channels have been carved out for the 
flow of goods to their destination. A most imposing array of business establishments, 
whose function it is to bridge the gap between producer and consumer, operate in the whole- 
sale field. The two principal functions of these establishments, particularly in the case 
of wholesalers proper, are to act as purchasing agents for retailers and other customers on 
the one hand, and to operate as distributors of the goods of manufacturers and processors 
on the other. To discharge these major functions properly, it behooves wholesale estab- 
lishments as a group to perform, among others, the following principal operations: 

1. To concentrate farm products, which are generally produced on a small scale, in 
quantities large enough for economical handling and shipment. 

2. To assemble for retailers and for industrial consumers, a large variety of mer- 
chandise from numerous domestic and foreign sources of supply, in order to facilitate buy- 
ing under one roof on the part of their customers. 

3. To store goods until needed by the trade. Because of the seasonal nature of pro- 
duction in agriculture on the one hand, and the seasonal character of demand for many manu- 
factured goods on the other, it is essential that reservoirs be provided at strategic 
points throughout the Nation to carry the physical inventories which these essential re- 
serves represent. The wholesaler has performed this function traditionally and still con- 
tinues to do so, although frequently assisted, in modern times, by public warehouses, manu- 
facturers' warehouses, chain-store warehouses, and places provided by other types of inte- 
grated trading institutions, such as department stores and mail-order houses. Whoever per- 
forms this task, the necessity for providing storage for surplus reserves of merchandise in 
relatively close proximity to consuming centers, is an inescapable wholesale function. 

4. To provide facilities for sorting, grading, and otherwise preparing goods for the 
market, in compliance with requirements of the trade. 

5. To study the needs of the trade, quantitatively and qualitatively, in order to 
make proper goods available in suitable lots for prompt delivery. 

6. To establish business connections with retailers, industrial consumers, and other 
wholesale organizations to which the goods are passed on in their movement to final desti-

SCOPE OF WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION 

The terms "wholesaling", "wholesale trade", or "wholesale distribution" have been wide- 
ly used for many years in discussions of marketing or of general business conditions, yet '^ 
much confusion is current as to their meaning and no clear-cut conceptions may be found on If 
the subject. At the present time the term "wholesaling", for example, is used in at least j'o 
three different senses. 

WHOLESALING IN ITS BROADER ASPECTS. — Broadly conceived, the term "wholesaling" includes 
all activities relating to the purchase or sale of goods at wholesale or in a wholesale ■■' 
manner, excluding only those transactions which involve sales to ultimate or home consum- '^ 
ers. It matters not whether the goods are sold by original producers, by processors, by '^ 
wholesalers, or by any of the functional middlemen engaged in wholesale trade such as com- '5 
mission men, brokers, and selling agents; nor does it matter whether the goods are sold to '^ 
a retailer, to an industrial consumer, or to a wholesale organization, so long as the pur- 'W 
pose of the customer in buying such goods is to resell them in one form or another, or to lv> 
use them in the conduct of his business. 

Were an attempt made to measure the total volume of wholesale trade in its broadest, - 
and theoretically most sound aspect, it would be necessary to include within the province '^ 
of wholesaling: 

1. Sales made by manufacturers, directly or through their sales branches, to whole- 
salers and other types of wholesale middlemen. 

2. Sales to retailers of all kinds 

3. Sales to institutions, restaurants, and hotels, 

4. Sales to industrial consumers, including manufacturers, mine operators, oil well 
conrpanies, fisheries, railroads, public utilities, farmers, and Government bodies, on the 
assumption that the goods are purchased for business purposes and not for family consump- ' '' 
tion. In this category are included sales of equipment and supplies to service and pro- '^ 
fessional establishments, as exemplified by sales made to barbers, beauty parlors, den- ''^ 
tists, and doctors, so long as such items are not purchased by ultimate consumers for their '-^ 
own use; also sales of building materials tc contractors. 

5. All activities of wholesale iriddlemen who aid in the transfer of title to goods 
which are bought for business purposes. In this group of middlemen are included agents 
and brokers of all kinds. 

6. All purchases of farm products for resale to others than individual consumers, 
irrespective of whether such purchases are made direct from farmers or from middlemen. 

WHOLESALING IN ITS NARROWER ASPECTS .-- Common usage on the part of laymen narrows the 
term "wholesaling" to the activities of wholesalers who sell to retailers.- In tnis narrow 
sense only wholesalers who take title to the goods and who sell the same to bona fide re- 
tailers for resale to consumers are included. Usually the term is narrowed to cover the 
activities of servic e wholesalers, thereby excluding the business of certain types of 
wholesalers who take title to the goods, but who render a limited number of services as in 
in the case of drop shippers and cash-and-carry wholesalers. Under all circumstances. It 
excludes the business operations of functional middlemen as exemplified by agents and bro- 
kers as well as these of chain store warehouses, manufacturers' sales branches, and other 

9749

types. 

CENSUS CONCEPT OF WHOLESALING. — Between these two general concepts various shades of 
meaning have been injected into the term "wholesaling", depending upon the special interest 
of the parties involved. For census purposes the term "wholesaling" or "wholesale distri- 
bution" is confined to the operations of wholesale establishments, i.e., places of business 
operating on a wholesale basis or in a wholesale manner. It does not include wholesale 
sales made by manufacturers, except through branches especially maintained for that pur- 
pose; nor does the term include wholesale sales made by farmers or by operators of mines, 
quarries, or oil wells. Obviously, it was impossible to make the term all-incl\'sive, that 
is, to use it in the bro ades t aspec t, since the census was taken on an establishment basis. 
Had the scope of the wholesale census been broadened to include such sales, it would have 
been necessary to secure a separate distribution report from every producing establishment 
and from every farmer and nurseryman, in addition to the report which they submit on pro- 
duction activities to the Census of Manufactures, Census of Mines and Quarries, and Census 
of Agriculture, respectively. It has been equally impracticable to confine the term to 
service wholesalers or to any other limited type of wholesalers, inasmuch as a clear-cut 
functional division as between different types of wholesale organizations is practically 
impossible. Much of the wholesale business, even in the sense in which service wholesal- 
ers operate, is being done by bulk tank stations, by manufacturers' sales branches and by 
other types of wholesale establishments. 

What The Wholesale Census Includes. — Thus, the wholesale census embraces all estab- 
lishments in continental United States v/hich were engaged in 1933 primarily in the pur- 
chase, sale, or distribution of goods on a wholesale basis. In addition to wholesalers of 
the conventional type, the census covers limited-function wholesalers, such as drop ship- 
pers and wagon distributors, and the whole range of organizations engaged in wholesale trade 
and which perform wholesale functions, including brokers, commission merchants, chain store 
warehouses, manufacturers' sales branches, selling agents, bulk tank stations, assemblers 
and country buyers of farm products, etc. In fine, the wholesale field covers practically 
all merchandising concerns whose primary function is to buy or sell goods at wholesale. 

What The Wholesale Census Does Not Include. — From this census are excluded all data 
on wholesale peddlers and others who maintain no definite places of business, since the e- 
numeration was based on establishments consisting of physical business units. Likewise, 
data are excluded on establishments engaged purely in the performance of services not 
immediately related to the purchase or sale of farm, mineral, forest, fishing, or manufac- 
tured products, as exemplified by advertising agencies, cotton gins, brokers in real es- 
tate and securities, and those middlemen operating on the commodity exchanges whose deal- 
ings were largely in futures. For emphasis it may also be reiterated that the census does 
not include wholesale sales made by manufacturers directly from their plants or such sales 
made by agricultural producers. Only when separate wholesale places of business were main- 
tained by such producers or processors were they included in the canvass. 

STATISTICAL TECHNIC USED IN THE WHOLESALE CENSUS 

In the process of gathering, handling and compiling the enormous mass of data of the 
wholesale census an elaborate technic had to be developed. It is believed that some under- 
standing of the statistical technic involved will make possible a bettor use of the pub- 
lished data. While in general the usual census technic was followed, important differences 
may be noted because of the fact that this was only the second complete wholesale census 
ever taken. 

9749 



THE CANVASS. — In securing reports for the wholesale census the aim was to itaka a com- 
plete enumeration. A report had to be obtained for every type of wholesale establishment, 
regardless of its size, method of operation, or nature of organization. For the purpose of 
the canvass a wholesale establishment was defined as a place of business, the primary func- 
tion of which is to buy, sell or distribute goods on a wholesale basis. It may be in the 
form of a store, wholesale warehouse, a sales or brokerage office, or part of an office, as 
when the office is shared with other similar organizations. 

The United States was divided into a number of districts, each in charge of a super- 
visor. The more technical phases of the canvass were in turn supervised by chief special 
agents of the Bureau of the Census. These special agents were trained in Washington for 
some time, the course of training consisting of lectures, discussions and actual schedule 
preparation. The information was actually collected by individuals, taken fiom Civil 
Works Administration rolls, in the various communities, who were paid largely on a piece- 
rate basis for the duration of the census period. As already noted, the canvass was on the 
basis of establishments rather than companies or firms, in order to facilitate the enumera- 
tion and to make it possible to present data by geographic areas. Maintenance of merchan- 
dise stocks was not a criterion in determining whether a place of business existed; other- 
wise the census would have excluded many agents and brokers as well as manufacturers' sales 
branches. 

EDITING THE SCHEDULES. — In collecting the data for 1933, a uniform schedule was used 
in reporting trading and service establishments, hotels, and places of amusement {see copy 
of schedule at end of this Volume). Upon receipt of the schedules in Washington they were 
sorted into wholesale, retail, and service and transmitted to the corresponding sections. 
Definite and detailed written instructions were prepared for the editing staff. Such in- 
structions were later supplemented in the light of additional experience. Every schedule 
was edited, checked and verified. The editing process required that the entire schedule be 
carefully examined by a single clerk for errors of statement, omissions, and inconsisten- 
cies. Many errors were corrected in the process, while others required correspondence with 
those furnishing the information. Schedules were checked against various trade directory 
lists, telephone directories, and membership lists in order to insure complete returns. In 
many cases they were also checked against schedules submitted in connection with the pre- 
vious census. 

THE PROBLEM OF CODING. — Due to the fact that electrical tabulating machinery was used 
in compiling the statistics it was necessary to code all schedules so that the information 
could be transferred to punch cards. This process required translation of data other than 
actual figures into numbers in accordance with a predetermined code. Coding of wholesale 
schedules was particularly complicated since it required at least two kinds of classifica- 
tions, one by functional type of operation and the other by kind of business. The number 
of strata or planes of wholesaling on the one hand and the high degree of specialization in 
merchandise on the other added to the difficulty. The number of functional types was fin- 
ally reduced to 19 and that of kinds of business to 166, for the 1933 census, as compared 
with 43 and 343, respectively, used in the 1929 census. A further complication lay in the 
fact that provision had to be made for presenting the statistics by geographic divisions. 
A well-established census rule makes it impossible to reveal data for any one establish- 
ment. Consequently provision had to be made for combining closely related types or lines 
of trade, as the case may be, in order to avoid disclosure of individual operations. Thus, 
every schedule had to be classified in two or more ways and then coded accordingly. The 
coded schedules were checked by more expert coders and reviewed by section chiefs in order 

9749 



-7- 

to insure accuracy. 

MECHANICAL TABULATION. — In order to make possible the use of the mechanical devices 
referred to above, the information contained in the wholesale schedules was transferred to 
specially prepared machine cards. Five 45-column cards were required to each schedule. 
These cards were machine punched by a separate section specializing in that work. The 
punched cards were transferred to another centralized station of the Bureau, where they 
were sorted and tabulated in accordance with instructions prepared for the purpose. The 
information was taken from the electrical tabulating machines on large "result slips" which 
showed the various area, kind-of-business, or type--of-establishment codes and the figures 
contained in the schedules. After careful inspection, the result slips were forwarded to 
the section responsible for the preparation of the tables. 

PREPARATION OF TABLES. — The result slips served as the -basis for the data which appear 
in the volumes on wholesale trade. Subject to carefully prepared instructions, the pre- 
liminary draft of the tabular material was compiled, for the most part, by inexperienced 
clerks. Due to the complicated nature of wholesaling and to the high degree of accuracy 
required when presenting a limited amount of information for certain areas and within cer- 
tain classifications, the preliminary tabulations were subject to expert inspection. By 
this method it was possible not only to eliminate statistical inaccuracies and mechanical 
errors, but also to detect and correct weaknesses in the field canvass and to prevent dis- 
closures.

CHAPTER II 

CLASSIFICATIONS AND DEFINITIONS IN THE 
WHOLESALE CENSUS 

IMPORTANCE OF CLASSIFICATIONS AND DEFINITIONS. — For a clear understanding and study of 
wholesale distribution, it has been necessary to classify the information, geographically, 
by areas such as States, counties, and incorporated cities and towns as fixed by the laws 
establishing their boundaries. It has also been necessary properly to identify each re- 
porting establishment according to its functional type and according to the line of mer- 
chandise handled. Only in this manner is it possible to present a statistical picture of 
the wholesaling mechanism of the Nation and its various subdivisions, showing the facili- 
ties existing in 1933, as compared with 1929, in each portion of the country for the whole- 
sale distribution of goods of different kinds. In this wise it is also possible to present 
data bearing on the relative efficiency of the different phases of the wholesaling system. 

In defining and classifying establishments the first problem was to distinguish be- 
tween wholesale and retail business. What was finally included in the wholesale census has 
been indicated in Chapter I of this volume. In effecting a division between wholesale and 
retail trade, many complexities presented themselves. In a number of instances wholesaling 
and retailing functions are so interwoven and intertwined as to make the process of sep- 
aration an almost insurmountable task. This situation is further complicated by the con- 
cerns operating in what may be termed the "twilight zone", as in the case of lumber yards 
which are conventionally designated as retail lumber yards but which in principle are 
wholesale establishments, inasmuch as they sell most of their goods to contractors for in- 
dustrial use. Furthermore, many business concerns do not fall clearly in either the retail 
or wholesale category, since they operate in both ways. It is impracticable, however, to 
classify any single establishment in more than one place. Consequently, concerns engaged 
in both retailing and wholesaling have been classed as retail or wholesale in accordance 
with the bulk of their business. If over 50% of their dollar volume was secured through 
wholesale sales, establishments have been counted as wholesale, and vice versa. Provision 
has been made, however, to compile retail sales of v;holesale establishments and wholesale 
sales of retail establishments, in order that complete figures may be available on total 
volume of wholesale business and total volume of retail business. 

CLASSIFICATION BY KIND OF BUSINESS 

Obviously, wholesale establishments handle different lines of merchandise. To be of 
real value to a business enterprise, the statistics of a wholesale establishment should be 
compared with those of other wholesale establishments operating in the same line of trade 
and in the sane area in which the concern wishing to nake comparisons is located. More- 
over, the characteristics in regard to employment, pay roll, total expenses, etc., nec- 
essarily vary as between different lines of trade or kinds of business. For these and 
other reasons each wholesale establishment has been classified, b^ kind of business , on the 
basis of the principal line or lines of merchandise in which it dealt. But the kind-of- 
business classifications, while on a commodity basis, must not be confused with commodities 
themselves, since most establishments handle more than a single commodity or group of com- 
modities. 

FACTORS IN CLASSIFYING WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS BY KIND OF BUSINESS .--Inquiry 2 of the 
schedule used in collecting information from wholesale establishments required, first, that 

9749 



-9- 

th© name or designation of the kind of business be given, based on the major kind of mer- 
chandise in which the reporting establishment dealt, and second, that the principal lines 
of merchandise sold or handled be listed in the order of their importance as determined by- 
volume of business during 1933. The information contained in the schedule in answer to this 
inquiry was the basis for classifying wholesale establishments by kind of business. In 
classifying a wholesale establishment, first, by kind of business ana, second, by kind-of- 
business groups three distinct factors or bases were considered: 

(1) The way in which the goods reported on the schedule are normally distributed, name- 

ly, the channels of distribution generally used in the wholesaling of such 
products; 

(2) The source of supply of the commodity or commodities under consideration; 

(3) The use of the commodity or goods by those who purchased the same from the report- 

ing firm. 

According to the first factor an establishment might be classified under dry goods, 
hardware, drugs, or electrical goods, if the goods involved are normally sold through one 
of those channels. On the basis of source of supply, an establishment might be classified 
under such kind-of-business groups as farm products, metals, or petroleum and its products. 
When utilization was the main feature, an establishment would be classified under such 
kinas of business as heating, clothing, farm supplies, groceries, etc. In a great many in- 
stances two or all of the three bases were used in classifying a wholesale place of busin- 
ess, with the emphasis usually being placed on channels of distribution. 

For the 1933 Census all wholesale places of business have been divided into 166 de- 
tailed kind-of-business classifications. These, in turn, were combined and telescoped into 
25 major kind-of-business groups. This compares with 343 detailed classifications used in 
the 1929 census which in turn v/ere combined into 86 major classifications which were fur- 
ther combined into 24 kind-of-business groups. An attempt has been made to retain com- 
parability insofar as possible between the kind-of-business classifications of the two 
wholesale censuses. However, since both funds and time were limited in connection with the 
1933 enumeration, fewer classifications had to be developed. The following arrangement 
presents the kind-of-business classifications used for 1933 and comparable classifications 
for 1929.

CLASSIFICATION BY TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT 

In addition to being classified according to kind of business, each wholesale estab- 
lishment was also classified by functional type. In the grocery trade, for example, there 
rr;, in addition to v'hat may be termed "service wholesalers", a number of newer types of 
vholesale distributors such as drop shippers, wagon distributors, and cash-and-carry v/hole- 
salers. Among the other wholesale organizations operating in the grocery field are brok- 
ers, chain store warehouses, and selling agents. Obviously, it is not sufficient to pra- 
sent census data only by kind-of-business, since various characteristics such as employ- 
ment, pay roll, credit sales, and total operating expenses will vary in a given kind of 
business an ths basis of the functions performed. For example, such characteristics for a 
sugar broker may be altogether different from those of a sugar wholesaler, because cf dif- 
ferences in the functions of the two wholesale middlemen. 

BASES FOR CLASSIFYING WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS BY TYPE. — In any attempt to classiry or 
group types of wholesale establishments, several possibilities are encountered. Such es- 
tablishments may be classified: 

1. According to the ownership of goods, into those which take title to the merchan- 
dise and operate as merchants and those which do not take title. 

2. According to services rendered, indicating whether they render complete or limited 
services. 

3. On the bs-sis of whether they emphasize the buying function or the selling func- 
tion, namely, a division into buying establishments and selling establishments. 

4. According to the ownership of the establishments, in order to indicate single unit 
establishments, branches, and chains. 

5. According to the relationship of the wholesale establishment to retail outlets, as 
in the case of chain store warehouses, or to producers, as in the case of manufacturers' 
sales branches . 

6. On the basis of the domestic territory covered, according to which they may be 
divided into local, sectional, and national. 

7. Accordinj to whether they are engaged in foreign or domestic trade. 

Any one of these classes may be further subdivided. Thus, it is possible to classify 
organizations engaged in domestic trade into buying organizations and selling organiza- 
tions. Each of those may in turn be- classified en the basis of title to the goods in order 
tc show m-srchant and noL-merchant establishiei.ts, as well as on the basis of who owns ths 
establishments, in order to determine whether they are integrated with retail stores as in 
the case of chain-store warehouses or with manufacturing establishments as in the case of 
manufacturers' sales branches. 

NUMBER OF TYPES USED 11! THE CENSUS. — In ordor to enhance the usefullness of the sta- 
tistics, wholesale establishmsnts have been divided into six type groups, four of which 
hc-vc been furthsr subdivided, so that a total of 19 distinct types of wholesale establish- 
ttsnts is used in breaking down census data by type. Several of the types represent regular

middlemen, namely, business concerns operating between producer and consumer in the pur- 
chase or sale of goods. Usually they also furnish a number of marketing services related 
to the buying and selling of merchandise. Some of these middlemen are of the merchant 
type, because they take title to the goods, while others may be designated as functional 
middlemen, since their main activity lies in the negotiation of purchases or sales, but 
they do not take title to the goods involved. These functional middlemen usually perform 
a more limited number of marketing functions than in the case of merchant middlemen. Some 
of the types defined below are integrated with manufacturers and others are integrated with 
retailers. Consequently, they can not be regarded as middlemen, although they are all in 
the middleman business.

DEFIlvITIONS OF TYPES OF WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS 

The concepts contained in the definitions of wholesale types set forth below are those 
used by the census in classifying the schedules. Every attempt has been made to adhere as 
closely as possible to the definitions used in the 1929 Census of Distribution and to com- 
mon usage among authorities in the field of marketing. 

I. WHOLESALERS PROPER. — In the functional type group known as " who lesalers EXoper" 
are included all wholesale establishments engaged in the buying and selling of goods on 
their ov/n account, and which are largely independent in ownership. It embraces wholesale 
merchants, exporters, importers, and limited function wholesalers. The term "wholesalers 
proper" is not to be confused with the term "wholesale merchants" which is used in a much 
narrower s:nse, as indicated below, although in some trades they may be synonymous since 
there may not be in such trades any exporters, importers, or limited function wholesalers. 



9749 



-28- 

(a) Wholesale Merchants . — These middlemen are usually known as wholesalers, but the 
term is used here in a more restricted sense, to cover only full- function wholesalers per- 
forming their functions primarily in the domestic market. They are merchant middlemen who 
sell goods principally to other middlemen or to industrial consumers. They buy and sell 
merchandise on their own account; carry stocks in their places of business; assemble in 
large lots ard redistribute, usually through salesmen, in smaller quantities, extend credit 
to customers, and render advice to the trade. In some lines of business, particularly 
where the merchandise is cf a perishable nature or derived from unstandardized production, 
wholesale merchants also perform the functions of grading and standardization. Although 
they sell primarily to retailers, substantial quantities of merchandise are also sold by 
them to industrial consumers such as restaurants, hotels, public institutions, public 
utilities, ac>nufacturers, mining companies, oil well companies, and to other wholesalers. 
In fact, some of the wholesale merchants specialize in the sale of goods to industrial con- 
sumers when they are often designated as supply and machinery distributers, industrial 
distributors, or mill supply houses. A clue to the number of wholesale merchants special- 
izing in the sale of industrial goods may be gleaned from the kind-of-bu£iness classifica- 
tions. 

The term "wholesale merchants" is used synonymously with that of "jobbers", sirce it 
was impossible to distinguish between the two on the basis of reports submitted. Further- 
irore, in practically all lines of trade the two terms are used interchangeably, with pre- 
ference being given to the more descriptive term "wholesaler" or "wholesale merchant". 

Under "wholesale merchants" are also included "semi-jcbbers" and "converters". Semi- 
■i o bbers are wholesale merchants who combine wholesaling and retailing in a single estab- 
lishment with the major emphasis on wholesaling. Converters are wholesale middlemen found 
chiefly in the textile and paper trades. In addition to performing the usual functions of 
wholesale merchants, converters also perform or have performed for them, some of the func- 
tions of manufacturing in its final stages. In the case of textiles this involves finish- 
ing, dyeing, printing, etc., while in the case of paper it may require cutting, ruling, and 
otherwise converting the paper into finished products in tablet or other form as required 
by the trade. The manufacturing functions are so insignificant in the case of converters 
included in the wholesale census, as compared with all of the other functions they per- 
form, that they are properly regarded as wholesale middlenen. 

(b) Exporters . — Exporters are wholesale merchants selling in the foreign rather than 
in the domestic market. Their sales may be largely to wholesele merchants abroad or to 
industrial consumers, rather than to retailers, as is the case witn wholesale merchants en- 
gaged in domestic trade. 

(c) Importers. — Importers in the wholesale field are tc be largely identified with 
wholesale merchants as far as functions are concerned. Tne chief distinction lies in the 
source of purchases which, for importers, is in the foreign field. Furthermore, sales by 
importers may be made largely to wholesalers or to industrial consuners rather than direct 
to retailers. 

(d) Limited Function Wholesalers . — Thi= term covers wholesalers operating in tne domes- 
tic market who take title tc the goods but render a limited number cf wholesale func- 
tions or perform such functions in a modified manner. Tn this group are included cash-and- 
carry wholesalers, drop shippers, mail order wholesalers, wagon distributors, and distri- 
buting warehouses. 

9749 



-29- 



1. Cash-and-c arr y w holesalers buy and sell merchandise in their own name, carry stock 
in storage, usually assemble in large quantities, and sell in smaller amounts to retail and 
other dealers who call for the goods at their places of business and pay cash for them. 
They are to bo distinguished from wholesale merchants by the fact that they usually carry a 
reduced line of products, mostly staples and fast-moving items, and do not generally extend 
credit to their customers, nor do they make free deliveries. As a rule, they employ no 
outside salesmen, hence they reduce the wholesale merchant's emphasis upon the selling func- 
tion and at the same time cut down upon the amount of market information which the full- 
function wholesaler makes available for his customers. Frequently, such establishments are 
operated as branches of "service" wholesalers in order to meet competition from chains, 
cooperatives, and other cash-and-carry jobbers. For purposes of the census, only estab- 
lishments that sell primarily on a cash-and-carry basis are regarded as cash-and-carry 
wholesalers. 

2. Drop- s hippers or desk j obbers are distinguished primarily by the fact that they do 
not perform the function of warehousing or storage, since they do not handle the goods; 
neither do they perform the delivery function, for all orders solicited from retailers and 
others are shipped directly from the manufacturers to the drop shippers' customers. While 
drop shippers buy and sell in their own names, assume some risk, and may extend credit, 
they are to be sharply distinguished from full-function wholesalers who actually handle the 
goods and make deliveries from stock. Under this classification are listed only those 
wholesale merchants who do all or the bulk of their business on a drop-shipment basis. 

3. Mail order or catalogue w holesale rs sell all or the bulk of their goods by mail. 
Otherwise such establishments operate in every way as service wholesalers, extending cred- 
it, making deliveries, etc. Some of them employ "good will" traveling men who tend to be- 
come active in the solicitation of orders. Only a few such concerns were canvassed in the 
United States in the 1933 census. 

4. Wagon distributors or Wago n Jobbers perform the wholesale functions of buying, 
selling, warehousing or storage, and delivery or transportation. Occasionally they extend 
credit to their customers. Their chief distinction from ordinary or service wholesalers 
lies in the following points: 

(1) They combine the functions of salesmen with those of deliverymen. In other words, 
no separate sales force is employed, the work of selling and delivery being carried out by 
salesmen-drivers. 

(2) They normally carry a limited assortment of merchandise, consisting of nationally 
advertised specialties and fast moving items of a perishable nature. 

(3) Normally they sell for cash and in original packages. 

In some lines of trade manufacturers have in recent years established their own wagon 
distribution systems. In this census are covered under the term "wagon distributors" only 
bona-fide wholesalers operating in the manner described above, excluding systems of wagon 
distribution used by manufacturers, particularly when the wagons or trucks operated direct- 
ly from the plant. 

9749 



-30- 

5. Warehouse (djgtribution . ) — Under this term have been included only those relative- 
ly few A-arehouse companies which buy and sell goods on their own account and thus engage in 
merchandising in addition to the storage service rendered to depositors of merchandise. 

II. BULK TANK STATIONS. — In this classification are included wholesale places of busi 
ness engaged in the distribution of gasoline, oil, and other petroleum products. While the 
term covers some district and general sales offices dealing in petroleum and its products, 
it comprises for the most part, *fhat is known as bulk plants, bulk stations, or bulk tank 
stations. Out of these stations, tank jvagons operated by salesmen-drivers cover the ser- 
vice or gasoline filling stations, both company-owned and independent. In the first in- 
stance bulk tank stations resemble chain store warehouses, while in the second case they act as 
wholesalers proper. Frequently, bulk stations do business on both bases. In fact, some of 
the largest oil companies sell most of their products through their bulk tank stations to 
independent retailers. They also supply in this manner independent wholesalers and large 
consumers. Most bulk stations are Oivned and operated by producing companies, although some 
of them are owned and operated by wholesale marketers of petroleum products who are not en- 
gaged in refining. Most bulk tanK stations are operated as chains, i.e., in multiple unit 
establishments. All of them actually handle the merchandise; consequently, brokers and 
agents #ho do not handle the goods are excluded from this classification. 

III. CHAIN STORE WAREHOUSES are establishments maintained by retail chains as distri- 
buting stations used to supply their stores with merchandise. In some respects they are 
similar in operations to establishments of wholesale merchants and are, in reality, more 
than mere warehouses. They maintain stocks, break bulk, and deliver and bill the merchan- 
dise to the retail outlets. Furthermore, the activities of these warehouses may include 
accounting and general supervision, and chain systems often maintain branch executive of fices 
■at these warehouses, which are charged with the superintendenc of the retail outlets with- 
in their respective districts. Who lesa le commissaries are included under this heading 
because they are essentially centralized ivarehousing establishments supplying company stores 
of manufacturing, mining, or other producing companies which cater to employees of such con- 
cerns. Prepared-food depots and other A-holesale distributing establishments operated in 
connection with bakeries and restaurants fall in the same general category. 

IV. MANUFACTURERS' SALES BRANCHES. — These branches represent wholesale outlets o#ned 
and operated by manufacturers, largely or entirely for the distribution of their own pro- 
ducts. They do not include places of business operated by incorporated companies #hich are 
not engaged primarily in the manufacture of goods. All such companies have been treated as 
entities for census purposes. Consequently, sales corporations of manufacturers have been 
classified as wholesalers rather than manufacturers' sales branches. 

Some of the manufacturers' sales branches carry regular stocks of merchandise and op- 
erate very much like A'holesale merchants, while a number of such branches are mere sales 
offices and carry no stock whatever or only for display and sample purposes. In this cen- 
sus, data are shown separately for the two types of manufacturers' sales branches, inasmuch 
as the characteristics of each type are quite distinct. In both types the emphasis is 
largely upon the selling function. The buying problem is minimized by the fact that they 
act as outlets for goods turned over to them by the parent organization. For the 1933 cen- 
sus district sales offices maintained by manufacturers have been treated as manufacturers' 
sales branches, while data for general sales offices have been largely excluded.

V. ASSEMBLERS AND COUNTRY BUYERS. — Establishments covered by this term engage pri- 
marily in the purchase or sale of farm products at local producing points or in the cities 
of producing regions. The emphasis is on the buying side, since it is the principal func- 
tion of these organizations to assemble and concentrate farm products which are produced on 
a relatively small scale in quantities large enough for economical shipment and handling. 
Most of them operate in what may be termed the local growers' markets, and include firms 
and individuals who do business on their own account, as well as those who operate on a 
salary or commission basis for others. The chief distinction between some of these differ- 
ent types, as indicated by their names, rests upon the commodities involved, rather than 
functional performance. 

(a) Ass emblers of F arm Products cover independent buyers, country buyers on salary or 
commission, and packers and shippers. Indepen dent bu yers of agricultural commodities, as a 
rule forward or consign the goods purchased to wholesale receivers or distributors in 
another and usually a larger market or to manufacturers or processors. Some of the larger 
handlers of agricultural commodities also maintain assembling and packing plants at points 
of concentration in producing regions. In addition to the products handled by such assemb- 
lers, large quantities of agricultural commodities are purchased by local retail store- 
keepers or others primarily engaged in some other business. Co untr y buyers on salary or 
commission, other than those covered by cream stations or elevators, include only those 
persons and firms engaged in the buying of agricultural products as agents for others with 
established places of business. P ackers and shipp e rs engaged primarily in the assembly of 
fruits and vegetables and in sea foods. Under this term are included establishments main- 
tained especially for the purpose of packing, shipping, and distributing agricultural pro- 
ducts but it does not include the packing and shipping operations by farmers or other pro- 
ducers directly from their farms or orchards. 

(b) Coo perati ve Marketing Associations . — These associations are formed largely by pro- 
ducers of farm products for the purpose of disposing of their goods at the most advantage- 
ous prices for the mutual benefit of the members. In addition to the actual selling of the 
products, they often grade, pack, store, finance, and in some cases advertise the commodi- 
ties they handle. Such associations may also buy for the members various supplies, such as 
feed, seed, fertilizer, and coal. In the 1933 census this designation covers cooperative 
marketing associations, whether local, sectional, or national, as well as central marketing 
associations set up as sales agencies by cooperatives. Cooperative cream and milk sta- 
tions, as well as cooperative elevators, are not included in the figures for cooperative 
marketing associations, but are covered instead under their respective designations. 

(c) Cream S tations . — This term applies to collecting stations or depots located in 
fluid milk-producing regions. They may be maintained by city milk distributors, by cream- 
ery companies, by cooperative milk associations, or by independent firms. Some of the 
cream station operators devote their full time to the purchase and shipping of milk or 
cream. In other cases they also purchase eggs, poultry, and other farm products. However, 
the majority of cream stations are operated in conjunction with some other business, which 
may be a retail store, an elevator, or a general country buying business. Under these 
latter conditions cream stations were not counted as separate establishments. 

(d) E levators . — The term "elevator", as used in the census, refers to those elevators 
that purchase and handle grain, either on their own account (independent), or for their 

9749 



-32- 

principals (line). It also includes elevators maintained by cooperative marketing associa- 
tions. Storage elevators, both public and private, and grain warehouses were not included 
in the Wholesale Census, but are covered instead in the service division of the Census of 
American Business. 

Independent elevators are, as a rule, locally owned and, in the majority of cases, are 
operated as single units. Line elevators, on the other hand, consist of a group or chain 
of elevators operated by a firm of grain dealers or by a mill or milling company. Strictly 
speaking, the use of the term "line elevator" should be confined to those elevators whose 
operations are directed from a central office. Cooperative elevators may be either inde- 
pendent or line, since some farmers' cooperative elevator associations operate a number of 
elevators. In addition to purchasing, handling, storage, and shipping of grain, elevators 
in some sections of the country transact a greater or less amount of retail business. In 
fact, in some of the older grain States the retail sales of seme elevators exceeded, in 
1933, the total dollar volume of grain handled. Unless the value of the grain handled 
equalled at least 50 per cent of the total sales reported, such elevators were considered 
as retail establishments. As a side line many of the elevators may also handle such items 
as coal, feed, or fertilizer for sale to farmers in the near-by communities. 

VI. AGENTS AND BROKERS. — In this group of wholesale establishments are included func- 
tional middlemen who specialize in the performance of buying or selling functions, either 
in domestic or foreign trade and who do not take title to the goods involved. Their chief 
additional function is in furnishing market information. For these services they receive 
compensation in the form of fees or commissions. 

(a) Brokers are wholesale middlemen v/hose function it is to negotiate transactions 
between buyers and sellers without having direct physical control of the goods. They act 
as agents for their principals who are usually wholesalers or producers, although sometimes 
they represent retailers as v/ell. Brokers may represent either buyers or sellers in a 
given transaction, or both, doing business in the name of their principals. They do not 
take title to the goods to which their negotiations apply, nor do they finance their cli- 
ents. Their power as to prices and terms of sale is usually limited by their principals. 
When the emphasis is placed on the purchase of goods, such brokers are frequently designat- 
ed as buying brokers. 

Brokers are not bound to any set of clients but operate freely in the wholesale field. 
Their relations with any one client are not continuous as they are in the case of selling 
agents or manufacturers' agents. The remuneration of brokers is in the form of a commis- 
sion or fee, based upon the value of the goods or upon the physical quantity of merchan- 
dise involved in the transaction. In addition to performing the functions of buying or 
selling, their chief function consists in advising their clients as to market conditions; 
for knowledge of such conditions, of sources of supply, and of outlets is their main stock 
in trade. Normally brokers do not handle the invoices and have nothing whatever to do with 
the amounts invoiced. In the grocery trade it is difficult to distinguish between brokers, 
selling agents, and manufacturers' agents, the three terms frequently being used in a 
synonymous manner. 

(b) Commission merchants are functional middlemen transacting business in their own 
name, and who have direct physical control over the goods consigned to them, on a commis- 
sion basis. As commission merchants they do not take title to the goods they sell for 

9749 



-33- 

clients. In some few lines of trade, commission merchants, or commission houses, act 
purely as shippers' agents, but in most lines of business they combine some merchant busi- 
ness with commission dealing. When acting in the capacity of agents for their principals, 
it is the practice of commission merchants, fthen the goods require it, to prepare them for 
the market, to sell them at the best possible prices, and to remit the proceeds after de- 
ducting commissions and other charges. In this capacity commission merchants always repre- 
sent sellers. When the emphasis is placed, however, on outright purchasing, so-called 
commission merchants become in reality wholesale merchants and are so classified for the 
purpose of the census. 

In this classification are also included factors which specialize in the raw-cotton 
and textile trades and in the distribution of naval stores, since their operations are sim- 
ilar to commission merchants. In the textile trade factors are generally commercial bank- 
ers who specialize in financing the mills, a function which they originally combined with 
that of selling. This is very unusual at the present time, consequently for purposes of 
the census the term "factor" is applied only to operators in the ra,v-cotton trade, and to 
those other factors Afho actually engage in the distribution of goods, since purely finan- 
cial or service establishments are not covered in the Census of American Business. Factors 
operating in the raw-cotton trade are located in central markets and receive the cotton on 
consignment from producing areas. Their work consists, first, in advancing funds to the 
shipper, who may be a grOA-er but who is usually a country buyer or cotton merchant ; second, 
in warehousing or storing the goods; third, in grading; and, finally, in selling the goods. 
Factors receive commissions for their services. 

(c) Exgort Agents include export commission houses and all agents and brokers who 
specialize in the sale of goods to foreign countries. Some of these agsncies may represent 
foreign clients for whom they purchase goods in the United States while others represent 
American exporters. 

(d) Import Agents include commission merchants, manufacturers' agents, and selling 
agents who represent foreign sellers in the American market. Normally a single agent rep- 
resents a number of clients ,vhose individual operations are too snail to justify separate 
organizations for importing purposes. They also attend to customs formalities and receive 
their compensation in the form of commissions. 

(e) Manufacturers ' Agents are functional middlemen who sell part of the output of cer- 
tain manufacturers on an extended contractual basis. They are limited ;vith respect to 
territory of operation and as to prices and terms of sale. Their principal duty is to sell 
goods in accordance with the desire of their clients, although they may also warehouse some 
of the merchandise. As used in this census, manufacturers' agents usually represent tv/o or 
more producers whose goods are non-competitive but supplementary in nature. Such agents 
are to be distinguished from salesmen in that they are in business for themselves. 

(f) Se lling Agents are independent business enterprises operating on a commission 
basis, Afhose principal function is to sell the entire output of a given line of goods for 
one or more manufacturers with ivhom they maintain continuous contractual relationships. 
Selling agents differ from manufacturers' agents in the following respects: (1) They nor- 
mally handle the entire output of their clients; ($2) they may sell everywhere while manu- 
facturers' agents are limited in their territory of operation; (3) they have full authority 
with regard to prices, terms, etc., while the authority of manufacturers' agents is limited 
in this regard; and (4) they frequently finance their clients and offer assistance in con- 

9749 



-34- 

nection with their advertising and other sales promotion activites. 

(g) Other Agents, — Under this classification are included auction companies, purchas- 
ing agents, and resident buyers. Auc tion com pani es are concerns that sell by the auction 
method at wholesale. Sales are conducted under definite rules and are usually made to the 
highest or best bidder. Such concerns do not take title to the goods but handle them for 
clients on a commission or fte basis. They provide a place for the public inspection and 
sale of merchandise consigned to them or to auction receivers and may, on their own res- 
ponsibility, extend credit to purchasers. 

P urc h asing agents and resident buyers are "terms used to identify syndicate buyers. 
They are independent organizations, as a rule, who buy merchandise for their clients and 
also supply them with market information. Occasionally such organizations are maintained 
cooperatively by a number of wholesalers or retailers for whom they perform the buying func- 
tion. Purchasing agents as used in the census comprise independent middlemen and are to be 
distinguished from so-called purchasing agents employed in manufacturing plants who are not 
in business for themselves but merely work for a single employer.

CHAPTER IIJ;_ ::- ;;.-^ -.-.; - 
GENERAL EXPLANATION^ - - ■ -r 

EXPLANATION OF TERMS; •- 

ESTABLISHMENTS. — This term covers all wholesale establishments canvassed in 1934 that 
were in existence during the year 1933, even though they operated but a portion of the year 
for which the data were collected. It comprises places of business rather than companies 
or firms, and does not include establishments that came into being after the census year or 
those y/hich discontinued operations prior to the actual canvass. This term was used in the 
same sense in connection with the 1930 census during which time wholesale establishments 
were canvassed that were in existence during all or part of the year 1929. 

PROPRIETORS AND FIRM MEMBERS. — Under this heading are included owners and part-owners 
of wholesale business enterprises of the single proprietorship or partnership type, pro- 
vided such owners and part-owners were actively engaged in the operation of the business. 
In listing proprietors and firm members no attention was given to the method or amount of 
remuneration, since their compensation has been entirely omitted from the statistics on 
salaries and wages in wholesale trade. 

EMPLOYEES. — Under this designation are included all paid employees, among them being 
corporation officers, other executives, salesmen, and all office, warehouse, delivery, and 
other employees. Proprietors and firm members are not included- under number of e mployees , 
regardless of the manner in which they received their compensation, whether in drawing 
accounts or in the form of net profits, nor are members of families of proprietors included 
unless they functioned on a salary basis in 1933. In arriving at the average number of em- 
ployees, the number reported for the 15th of each month during the year 1933 was added and 
the sum divided by 12. 

FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES. — This includes all paid employees working a full day during the 
whole or the greater part of the pay roll period including the fifteenth of the month. 
Since information on employment was requested for each month, employees described above are 
regarded as full-time employees, regardless of the fact that the establishment operated only 
part of the year because it was brought into existence sometime during 1933 or because it 
operated on a strictly seasonal basis. 

PART-TIME EMPLOYEES. — This term is meant to cover employees hired on a part-time 
basis, involving either part of a day or part of a pay roll period. No employee has been 
included in this classification if he worked a full day over a period of time more than 
three days per week. 

EMPLOYMENT BY SEX. — The distribution of paid employees by sex was reported for all em- 
ployees, full-time and part-time combined, as of December 30, 1933. In arriving at the es- 
timated average number of males and females (Table 6), the sex ratio of employees as of 
December 30 was applied to the average number of employees for the entire year. 

MONTHLY EMPLOYMENT. — Employment is the only item in the wholesale trade statistics 
which is presented on a monthly basis. It may be taken, to^ indicate the extent of seasonal 
change in wholesale activity which is quite marked in certain lines of trade. The number 
of full-time and part-time employees is shown separately on the pay roll nearest the 15th 
of each month. 

9749 



-36- 

PAY ROLL. — The total pay roll figure covers the total compensation — salaries, wages, 
commissions, bonuses, etc. — paid to salaried corporation officers, other executives, sales- 
men, other salaried employees and wage earners. The income derived by proprietors and firm 
members is not included in this figure. The term pay roll is synonymous with salaries and 
wages used in the 1929 Census of Distribution and includes the compensation of part-time as 
well as full-time employees. In addition, part-time pay roll is shown separately although 
it has already been included under the total. 

Full-time pay roll, which can be obtained by deducting part-time pay roll from total 
pay roll, may be used to arrive at average annual earnings of full-time employees. In 
following this procedure, however, account must be taken of certain qualifying considera- 
tions. Full-time pay rcll represents the aggregate of salaries, commissions, and other 
types of compensation paid to full-time employees in the course of 1933. The average num- 
ber of full-time employees on the other hand is merely the average of the total number of 
names entered on twelve pay rolls (each covering a single week, half-month or month) as 
persons engaged on a full-time basis as described above. One of the factors is thus a true 
aggregate while the other may or may not represent a true monthly average of full man- 
months of employment. It must also be remembered that there is some variation on the part 
of respondents in differentiating between full-time and part-time employees, and on account 
of differences in the length of employemnt of full-time employees (varying from a little 
better than 3 days per week over a period of time to full-time employment, every day over a 
period of time) pay roll should not be used to compute the average wages per employee. 

TOTAL EXPENSES. — This item includes all expenses paid by the reporting wholesale es- 
tablishments during 1933. It covers total pay roll, as defined above, and all other expen- 
ses incurred in the operation of the business, such as traveling and other expenses of 
salesmen, rent paid for the premises, interest, advertising expense, credit and collection 
expense including losses from bad debts, insurance, certain taxes, Jight, heat, power, 
postage, etc. Neither capital investment (land, buildings, fixtures, and the ]ike) nor the 
cost of goods sold are included under this or any other item covered in the census reports. 

NET SALES. — The term net sales is used in the Census in a broad way so as to include 
total net receipts whether those receipts are from the sale of merchandise, services, or in 
the form of receipts from rentals or from other sources. Net sales are derived by deduct- 
ing from gross sales the value of goods returned by, or allowances made to, customers. 

Some wholesale establishments are engaged primarily in buying or assembling goods, the 
selling phase being incident or non-existent irasmuch as such purchases iray be made for 
parent organizations or for clients. Brokers, too, may represent buyers rather than sell- 
ers. Consequently, the term net sales is used to include the purchases made by country 
buyers of farm products and by other buying agents as well as the activities of agents and 
brokers operating en a commission basis, irrespective of whether they represented clients on 
the selling or buying end of the business. However, no transaction has been counted more 
once, that is, either the purchasing end was considered or the selling end. 

In the case of agents and brokers operating on a comirissicn basis it was sometimes 
necessary to compute net sales on the bas.s cf average commission rates or fees charged. 
These rates or fees were either reported by the agents and brokers concerned or were ob- 
tained through a computation of such rates and commissions reported by other agents and 
brokers for the same geographic division of the United States. This method was necessitat- 
ed by the fact that many agents and brokers maintain records only of commissions received 

9749 



-37- 

and do not have actual figures covering their operations in behalf of clients for whom they 
either buy or sell goods. 

STOCKS ON HAND. — The schedule used by the Wholesale Census required that each estab- 
lishment report the value of merchandise on hand for sale December 31, 1933, or nearest in- 
ventory date, on a cost or replacement basis. This inventory figure can not be used to 
compute the rate of stock turnover without firet making essential adjustments. To compute 
the rate of stock turnover properly, it is necessary, first, to have a true average inven- 
tory or an inventory carried normally throughout thp year and, second, to reduce the sales 
and inventory figures to the same basis, namely, to take both of them either at cost or at 
selling prices. Neither of these conditions obtain.'^ in the census figures. The inventory 
is taken in most cases as of December 31, which may or may not be representative of the 
average stocks carried during the year in any given line of business. Furthermore, stocks 
on hand are given approximately at cost prices while net sales are shown at selling prices. 
To reduce the net sales to a cost basis it would be necessary to know the gross margin or 
mark-up on the merchandise; this is not available in the census figures since no question 
was asked to secure data on net profits which are r"?cessarily a part of the gross margin. 

CREDIT SALES. — Each establishment was requested to report under this item in the sche- 
dule, that part of its total business which was done on a credit basis; i.e., sales made on 
weekly terns, on a 10-day basis, 30-day basis, end-o T-month terms, sales on tne installment 
plan, or on any other basis that does not involve the immediate payment of cash upon receipt 
of goods. C.O.D. sales, including all transactions which involve a sight-draft attached 
bill of lading, and sales on relief orders were classed, for purposes of this census, as cash 
sales. The term presucably covers, except as noted, all sales made on any basis other than 
strictly cash. 

SALES TO RETAILERS. — Every reporting establishnent was requested to report the actual 
amount of goods sold to retailers fcr resale. This term presumably excludes purchases made 
by retailers of such items as machinery, equipment or supplies which are not bought for re- 
sale but merely for use in the conduct of the business. 

SALES TO CONSUMERS (at retail). — This represents sales made to ultimate or home con- 
sumers who bought the goods for personal use or for household consumption. While such 
sales are normally aade by retail stores, a certain amount of goods is sold to consumers 
also by wholesalers who may be engaged in both wholesale and retail business (see defini- 
tion of Wholesale Merchants in Chapter II) or who nay sell a relatively small amount of 
their goods to ultimate consumers on a retail basis merely as an accommodation. 

SALES TO INDUSTRIAL CONSUMERS. — These are sales made by wholesale establishments to 
manufacturers, oil well companies, mine operators, railrods, public utilities, and institu- 
tions. In it may alsc be included sales made to farmers when they bought goods from regu- 
lar wholesale establishments for farming purposes and not for their personal use. Such 
sales consist largely of machinery, equipment, supplies, and raw materials not intended for 
resale in the same form. 

SALES TO WHOLESALE ORGANIZATIONS. — Wholesale establishments were required to report 
the distribution of their business voluire by outlets, that is, to indicate how cuch they 
sold to retailers, to industrial users, and to consumers (at retail). Most of the respon- 
dents reported on this item, as shown in Table 5. When the total sales of an establishment 
exceeded the amount reported by the above listed types of outlets it was presumed that the 

9749 



-38- 

Jifference was due to sales made by the establishment to other wholesale organizations. 
This presumption was checked through correspondence with many reporting firms and f ound- tt^. 
be correct. Thus, the data under this item show the amount of duplication in wholesale 
trade, i.e., the extent to which goods are sold by one wholesale establishment to another, 
involving two or more wholesaling transactions relating to identical products. 

NEW WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS. — This term refers to wholesale establishments which have 
come into existence in the wholesale field since 1929, but prior to 1934. For a complete 
explanation of the term and its significance, as well as for a complete analysis of the 
business done by such establishments, see report on "New and Old Wholesale Establishments". 

EXPLANATION OF TABLES 

The first seven tables in the United States Summary, other than those contained in 
Chapter IV, are similar in contents and numbering with the tables in the individual State 
reports. To this there are tv,o exceptions. ' Table 2-A in the State reports shows the 
n-:.3':er of establishments by kind of business, in detail, for as many types as possible, 
v/hile Ta;le 2-A in the United States Summary presents, in addition to the number of estab- 
lishments by kind of business, in detail, also essential information for all types of 
wholesale establishments conbined. Table 5-A "sales mada by retailers to other retailers" 
is not given in the State reports. 

The United States Summary contains two additional tables (Tables 8 and 9) for which 
there are no counterparts in the State reports. Table 8 presents data on new wholesale 
establishments which started operations subsequent to 1929. While information on these es- 
tablishments is not given in the State reports, a special study on "New and Old Wholesale- 
Establishments" published separately by the Bureau of the Census contains such statistics 
not only for the United States as a whole but also for each of eight States that are thought 
to be representative of large and small States and of different sections of the country. 
Finally, Table 9 gives information on wholesale trade by counties. All text tables 
have been given Roman numerals to distinguish them from the comparable State and United 
States Summary tables. 

TABLE 1, SUMMARY OF WHOLESALE TRADE, BY TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT. —This table presents a 
summary of wholesale trade by functional types of wholesale establishments. For cities of 
100,000 or more inhabitants, with the exception of a limited number of selected citiesl/, 
these data are shown only for four major type groups. For a limited number of large cities 
representative of different sections of the United States, for each of the States, and for 
the United States these data are shown for each of six type groups, some of which have been 
further subdivided so that information can be given for each of 19 distinct types of whole- 

1/ The 21 selected cities arranged according to their 1930 population are as follows: New 
York, N.Y.; Chicago, 111.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Detroit, Mich. ; Los Angeles, Calif.; Cleve- 
land, Ohio; St. Louis, Mo.; Baltimore, Md.; Boston, Mass.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; San Francisco. 
Calif.; Milwaukee, Wise; Buffalo, New York; Minneapolis and St. Paul (combined), Minn.;. 
New Orleans, La.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Kansas City, Mo.; Seattle, Wash.; Denver, Colo.; At- 
lanta, Ga.; Dallas, Texas.

sale establishments. Data are shown in this table on the number of establishments, both 
for 1933 and 1S23; net sales, for 1933 and 1929; total expenses, expressed in amounts and 
as a percent of net sales, the latter for 1933 and 1929; t!:e average number of full-time 
employees; total pay roll expressed in amounts and as a percent of net sales; part-time pay 
roll; and stocks on hand at the end of the year. 

TABLE 2A, NUMBER OF WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS, BY TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT AND KIND OF 
BUSINESS. — As indicated in the preceding chapter, each wholesale establishment was classi- 
fied not only according to functional type but also by kind of business as determined by 
the chief line or lines of merchandise in which it dealt. In this table which is presented 
for each of the States and for selected cities is shov.'n merely the number of wholesale es- 
tablishments by kind of business, in detail, for each of 19 functional types. This table 
may be regarded as a supplement to Table 2B; it indicates at least the number of establish- 
ments under given functional types for those kinds of business for which detailed informa- 
tion can not be shown in Table 28 without disclosing individual operations. 

For the United States Summary, Table 2A is used to show the same information by kind- 
of-business in detail, as is given in Table 2B. Such information is presented in Table 2A 
for all types of establishments combined, whereas in Table 2B the data are shown separately 
for as many of 19 types of establishments as is possible without disclosing individual op- 
erations. Conse^.uently, totals for any kind of business, regardless of type of operation 
involved, can be secured only from Table 2A. 

TABLE 2B, WHOLESALE TRADE, BY TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT AND KIND OF BUSINESS.— In this 
table are presented the most essential statistics of the wholesale division of the census. 
For this reason these data are shown for as many separate communities as possible, the de- 
tail being increased with the size of the community. The table is presented for cities of 
5,000 to :10,000 population in one line totals; for cities of 20,000 to 50, 000 inhabitants by 
five kind-of-busihess groups, for wholesalers proper and all other types combined; for 
cities of 50,000 inhabitants and over by 25 kind-of-business groups for each of four major 
functional types; and for a limited number of selected cities, for States, and for the 
United States by kind of business, in detail, for as many of the 19 functional types as can 
be presented without disclosing information concerning individual establishments. 

The data shown in Table 2B include the number of establishments; net sales; total ex- 
panses, expressed in amounts and as a percent of net sales; average number of full-time em- 
ployees; pay roll, total and part-time; and stocks on hand. 

TABLE 3, RECEIPTS FROM SALES OF MERCHANDISE AND SERVICES, BY KIND OF BUSINESS. —In 
addition to dealing in merchandise, many wholesale establishments derive a certain amount 
of income from the sale of services and from other sources which are usually incidental to 
their principal activity. In a few exceptional cases receipts from services constitute the 
principal business of the wholesale establishment. This is true, for example, of motion 
picture film exchanges whose main income is from the rental of films rather than the sale 
of goods. The data in Table 3 measure quantitatively the volume of business secured 
through the sale of goods and that obtained from other sources. This table is presented 
only for States and for the United States by 25 kind-of-business groups, for all types of 
establishments combined. 

Table 3 sr.o'.vs the number of establishments in a given hind- -of- -business group, total net 
sales, a term used throughout as interchangeable with reoeipts, total expenses, expressed

in amounts and as a percent of net sales; and receipts. The last item is broken down 
according to sources into sales of merchandise; receipts from parking, storage, cleaning, 
etc. ; receipts from space rentals; and receipts from other sources. The "other sources" 
consist, for the most part, of receipts from film rentals and from rental of machinery. 

TABLE 4, CREDIT SALES, BY TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT AND KIND OF BUSINESS.— Tha extent to 
which wholesale establishments engaged in selling on a credit basis is shown in Table 4. 
This information is presented only for States and for the United States. For States, cred- 
it data are shown by 25 kind-of-bu«iness groups, separately for wholesalers proper and for 
all other types combined. For the United States as a whole these data are presented by 25 
kind-of-busnoss groups, for each of 19 functional types. The statistics contained in this 
table indicate the degree to which wholesale establishments perform the functions of fi- 
nancing business by extending credit to retailers, industrial consumers, and to other 
wholesale organizations to which they sell. 

Since some of the wholesale establishments did not operate on a credit basis and 
others failed to reort on this item, data on credit sales are presented in Table 4 only for 
those establishments for which the credit information was available. The table shows the 
number of establishments reporting credit and the percent which that number constituted of 
the total for the kind of business under consideration. The same procedure is followed in 
connection with net sales. In the columns that follow, credit sales are given in amounts 
and as a percent of sales of establishments reporting credit sales as well as a percent of 
sales of all establishments in a given group. The table also shows total expenses incurred 
by establishments operating on a credit basis. These expenses are given in amounts and as 
a percent of sales so that comparison may be made between the costs of doing business of 
establishments selling on credit with the costs incurred by those establishments which pre- 
sumably do not operate on a credit basis, if it can be assumed that all or most of the es- 
tablishments not reporting credit sales sold for cash. 

TABLE 5, DISTRIBUTION OF SALES, BY KIND OF BUSINESS AND TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT. ~A 
common conception is that wholesalers sell only to retailers and that wholesalers are the 
only type of organization operating in the wholesale field. That this is far from the 
truth is indicated by the figures shown in Table 5. The statistics therein contained are 
presented only for States and for the United States. For each of the States the data are 
shown by 25 kind-of-business groups, separately for wholesalers proper and for all other 
types combined. For the United States as a whole the data are presented by 25 kind-of- 
business groups, for each of the 19 functional types. The table shows that wholesale es- 
tablishments sell to retailers, to industrial consumers, to ultimate or home consumers, and 
to other wholesale organizations. Naturally, there is considerable variation in the extent 
to which different types of wholesale establishments make use of these outlets and the de- 
gree to which they are used in the different kinds of business. 

Here, too, not all of the establishments reported the distribution of their sales, 
partly because of inadequate records at the time the census was taken. The table shows for 
each type and kind-of-business group the number of establishments, net sales, and total ex- 
penses of all establishments, and then presents statistics for those establishments which 
reported a distribution of sales by outlets. For these establishments it shows the number 
and the percent which such number consituttes of the total for the group under considera- 
tion. Similar treatment is given to the net sales of establishments which reported their 
sales by type of customers. This is followed by total expenses for such establishments, 
expressed both in amounts and as a percent of sales. Total sales are then distributed into 



-41- 

the follov/ing groups: salee to retailers (for resale); sales to home consumers (at retail); 
sales to industrial users, including institutions; and sales to other wholesale organiza- 
tions. From these data it should be possible, among other things, to determine the amount 
of duplication in the total wholesale sales figures, due to the fact that some wholesale 
establishments sell to other wholesale organizations. 

TABLE 6, MONTHLY EMPLOYMENT, BY KIND OF BUSINESS. —The lignificance of wholesale trade 
as a source of employment is indicated in Table 6. In this table the number of proprietors 
and firm members and the number of paid employees, divided into male and female and into 
full-time and part-time, are shown for each of the 25 major kind-of-business groups. The 
estimate by sex is based on the sex distribution reported for the total number of employ- 
ees as of about December 30, 1933; the percent of women shewn separately relates to the same 
date. The table also presents the number of full-time and part-time employees as of about 
the 15th of each month for each kind-of-business group, and a monthly index of employment 
for wholesale trade as a whole. This information is presented for the United States, for 
each of the States, and for cities of 500,000 population and over. 

TABLE 7, WHOLESALE MERCHANTS AND MANUFACTURERS' SALES BRANCHES, BY SIZE OF ESTAB- 
LISHMENT AND KIND OF BUSINESS. — Two types of wholesale establishments, namely, wholesale mer- 
chants (including importers) and manufacturers' sales branches with stocks, have been clas- 
sified by size according to their net sales. Data by size are shown only for States and 
for the United States. For each of the States information is presented by 25 kind-of- 
business groups on the number of establishments, the annual average number of full-time 
employees, and total expenses expressed as a percent of net sales, for each of the follow- 
ing 7 size groups:

For the United States as a whole additional information is given on the amount of net 
sales and of expenses. Moreover, for wholesale merchants data are given by kind of busi- 
ness in detail rather than by 25 groups, and the number of size groups has been increased 
from 7 to 11 as follows:

Table 7 permits a comparison by lines of trade of ,vholesale merchants (including im- 
porters) with manufacturers' sales branches with stocks, two types of wholesale operations 
which, for the most part, compete in the same market, warehouse goods, and make deliveries 
from stocks. Comparison is also possible of small and large-sized establishments in a 
given trade as to operating costs. It shows to what extent each size group furnishes em- 
ployment in wholesale trade. It further indicates the differences existing betjveen trade 
groups and between wholesale merchants and manufacturers' sales branches with stocks as to 
average size of establishment, as to distribution of establishments by size, and as to op- 
erating costs. 



TABLE 8, SUMMARY OF WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS WHICH BEGAN OPERATIONS 1929-1933. —The 
number of new establishments and their net sales are shown in this table. New wholesale 
establishments are those which have come into existence after 1929 but prior to 1934 and 
were still in operation when the census was taken during the early months of 1934. The 
data are shown in totals for each of the five type groups regardless of the kinds of busi- 
ness involved and for each of 27 kind-of-business groups irrespective of the types of es- 
tablishments operating therein. The two items of information, namely, number of estab- 
lishments and net sales, are also presented separately for those establishments which began 
operations after 1929 but prior to 1933 and for those which have come into being in 1933 
during each of the first two quarters of the year and during each month thereafter. A more 
complete analysis of the business of new wholesale establishments may be found in a sepa- 
rate publication of the Bureau of the Census entitled "Ne,v and Old Wholesale Establish- 
ments". 

TABLE 9, WHOLESALE TRADE OF THE UNITED STATES, BY STATES AND COUNTIES. — This is the 
only table in ^rhich wholesale statistics are shown by counties. For each county, listed 
alphabetically under the proper State, the number of establishments is shown for 1933 and 
for 1929, followed by net sales for each of the same two years. Other information given 
for each county pertains only to 1933 and consists of the average number of full-time em- 
Dloyees; pay roll for all employees and for part-time employees; and stocks on hand at the 
end of the year. On the basis of this information it should be possible to ascertain 
changes in the relative importance of the various counties as geographic wholesale trade 
units. The data on a county basis are also valuable for sales planning and quota setting 
purposes, for the determination of market potentialities, and for economic and social uses 
where the county constitutes the unit of operation or control.

CHAPTER IV 

GENERAL ANALYSIS OF WHOLESALE TRADE STATISTICS 

Unlike most surveys and sample studies in the field of wholesaling, the census data 
for 1933, as well as those for 1929, have the advantage in that they represent complete 
coverage and are of a much wider scope. Survey statistics are ordinarily confined to a 
limited part of the universe studied, whereas census data cover the entire universe, the 
results of which make possible a correction of the current data so that the latter may be 
made more useful. Moreover, in a survey or sample study relatively few items are generally 
covered. In the Wholesale Census, on the other hand, are included statistics not only on 
the number of establishments and sales but also on many other phases of wholesaling, as 
will be analyzed briefly in the following pages. The statistics derived from the census 
are basic and fund ame n tal : consequently, timeliness is not as important a factor as it is 
in current data. In this Chapter an attempt will be made, first, to discuss and analyze 
quantitatively the wholesale distribution process as a whole and, second, to analyze some- 
what a few specific phases of the subject. 

GENERAL SUMMARY OF WHOLESALE TRADE. — The Census of Wholesale Distribution, taken as 
part of the Census of American Business in the early months of 1934, covers operations for 
the year 1933 and is based upon schedules submitted for 164,170 establishments operating on 
a wholesale basis, as defined in Chapter I. These establishments reported a volume of 
business during the year, hereinafter generally referred to as net sales, amounting to 
$32,151,373,000. Of this amount, sales to home consumers at retail totaled $585,945,000, 
which must be subtracted from the amount stated above; to this must then be added the sales 
made by retailers on a wholesale basis, or $461,659,000, so that the total volume of whole- 
sale trade passing through merchandising establishments of all types, operating in all 
kinds of business, amounted to $32,027,087,000. 

Practically all of the business reported by wholesale establishments was secured from 
the sale of merchandise, the remainder of the volume being obtained through the sale of 
services which consisted of receipts from parking, storage, space rental, rental of ma- 
chinery, rental of motion picture films, and from other sources of a miscellaneous character. 
Receipts from the sale of merchandise accounted for $31,884,432,000 worth of business or 
99.2 percent of the total, while all other sources of revenue contributed but $266,941,000 
or 0,8 percent of the total. 

In securing and transacting the volume of wholesale trade covered by the Census, the 
establishments engaged in the business required an average of 1,095,977 full-time paid em- 
ployees (exclusive of proprietors and firm members) and 125,943 part-time employees. Of 
the total number of full-time and part-time employees, 1,003,097 were male and 219,823 or 
7.9 percent were female. As compensation for their services during 1933 employees engaged, 
by wholesale establishments received $1,714,109,000 in salaries, wages, commissions, and 
bonuses; of this amount $59,871,000 was paid for part-time employment. In addition to 
salaries and wages, other expenses were incurred in the operation of wholesale places of 
business, amounting to $1,996,124,000. Thus, total expenses reported by wholesale estab- 
lishments (not including the cost of merchandise, interest and amortization on the invest- 
ment, salaries of proprietors and firm members, or net profit) aggregated $3,710, 233, 000; 
which was 11.5 percent of net sales. 

Stocks on hand at the end of 1933 for all wholesale establishments combined had a cost 
or replacement value of $3,013,179,000, the equivalent of 9.4 percent of net sales for the 
year. Some of the goods were sold for cash and others on time. For the establishments re- 

9749 



-44- 

porting creciit sales, the proportion of business done on a creciit basis was 82.4 percent of 
the total. The sale of goods was not limited to any single outlet or type of customer. 
For the establishments which reported their sales by type of outlet, it was found that 52.2 
percent of the business consisted of sales to retailers, 28.8 percent represented sales to 
industrial users, 2.2 percent comprised sales to home consumers (at retail), and the re- 
maining 16.8 percent consisted of sales to other wholesale organizations. 

As compared with 1929, the number of wholesale establishments in 1933 was 3.2 percent 
less and the voluae of business was 53.4 percent lower. This is significant, first, in 
showing the relatively small decline during the depression in the number of wholesale 
places of business, and second, in indicating the extent to which the sales per establish- 
ment decreased. The following tabulation summarizes the most important changes affected in 
wholesaling since 1929 (see Table I, below).

WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION IN RELATION TO THE WHOLESALING TASK. — In dealing with data for 
1929 it was possible to prepare an estimate of the value of goods — manufactured products, 
farm products, minerals, and the like — which were distributed in a wholesale manner, that 
is. sold or transferred by their producers or importers to wholesalers, retailers, or 
industrial users. The total then obtained of nearly $82,000,000,000 was an apprximate 
measure of the task in terms of the total value of goods (at f.o.b. point of production or 
import prices) to be distributed at wholesale. As against this figure the total volume of 
wholesale trade covered by the Wholesale Census for 1929 was $68,950,108,000. The two 
figures are, of course, not directly comparable. The wholesale trade figure is based on 
prices charged by wholesale establishments which differ from the f.o.b. point of production 
or import prices underlying the estimate of value of gocds istributed at wholesale by the 
amount of the wholesale gross margin. Moreover, wholesale trade figures include an appre- 
ciable amount of duplication arising from sales by one wholesale organization to another. 
Nevertheless, the relationship between the two figures has some significance as a concrete 
indication of the difference between the somewhat broader concepts of wholesaling measured 
in terms of goods to be wholesaled and the narrower conception of wholesale trade adopted 
by the Wholesale Census. 

In the absence of requisite data, particularly on the break-down of manufacturers' 
sales by type of outlet, it does not appear possible to prepare an estimate of the value of 



9749 



-45- 

goods distributed in a wholesale manner in 1933. It is, however, feasible to estimate 
roughly the change from 1929 to 1933 in the relationship between the task of wholesale dis- 
tribution conceived from the standpoint of the task measured by the value of goods to be 
sold at wholesale and wholesale trade as defined by the Census. The decline in the volume 
of wholesale trade i£, as indicated above, 53.4 percent. The decline in the value of goods 
entering wholesale distribution can be approximated by comparing the aggregate value of 
output of manufacturing industries, mines and quarries, oil wells, of products sold by 
farmers (farm cash income) and of goods imported in 1933 with that in 1929 (See Table II).

2/ Revised from 1929 published figures as per Summary by Industries published January 23, 
1935 by the Census of Manufactures. 

As is evident from Table II, above, the decline in the aggregate value cf the princi- 
pal items entering for the most part wholesale distribution amounts to 54.2 percent. It 
appears, therefore, that there was little or no significant change in the relation between 
wholesale trade covered by the census and the total volume of goods available for distribu- 
tion at wholesale during the four years of depression 1/. 

WHOLESALE TRADE IN RELATION TO RETAIL SALES. —For the year 1933, the volume of busi- 
ness done by wholesale establishments was 128.4 percent of the sales reported by retail 
stores. When the total reported expenses of retail stores are deducted from retail sales, 
in order to make the retail and wholesale figures more comparable as far as price* are con- 
cerned, it appears that v/holesale trade was 173.4 percent of the retail business, despite 
the fact that retail sales include several billions of dollars worth of goods purchased 
directly from manufacturing plants and froir farmers, and which are, therefore, not included 
in the wholesale census figures. 



1/ To measure the total volume of wholesale trade on the basis of actual dollar trans- 
actions, inclusive of duplication and operating margins, it would be necessary to add to the 
total value of goods sold by producers at wholesale the sales reported by the various whole- 
sale institutions. 



9749 



-46- 

The excess of wholesale business over that of retail sales may be explained in several 
ways. In the first place, the wholesale trade total includes a certain amount of export 
business which naturally dos not enter domestic retail trade channels. Second, it involves 
a considerable amount of duplication resulting from the sale of the same goods by two or 
more wholesale organizations successively. For 1933 the amount of duplication reported, 
consisting of sales by one wholesale organization to another, was 16.8 percent of the tot- 
al. Finally, wholesale trade figures include a large volume of sales of industrial goods 
like machinery, equipment, and raw materials. Such goods are sold even by the conventional 
wholesalers but are not included in the sales reported by retail stores. As a matter of 
fact, when all of these factors are considered, only approximately 52.0 percent of the 
sales reported by wholesale establishments must be accounted for in the sales reported by 
retail stores. It should also be pointed out in this connection that wholesale trade in- 
cludes the business of establishments which are not conventionally considered as whole- 
salers. Since establishments like agents and brokers operate on a wholesale basis and sell 
substantial quantities of goods to retailers and to industrial users in direct competition 
with regular wholesalers, they constitute a part of the wholesaling structure fully as much 
as do service wholesalers. 

Total sales made by wholesale establishments to retailers must not be confused with 
the sales reported by the retail stores of the country. In addition to buying from whole- 
sale organizations, retailers purchase substantial amounts of merchandise directly from 
manufacturing plants and from farmers. Such transactions are not covered by the Wholesale 
Census. Furthermore, as already indicated previously, retail sales figures are reported at 
retail selling prices which necessarily include the gross margin of the retailers, whereas 
the sales to retailers reported by wholesale establishment are given at wholesale prices. 
Finally, many retailers included in their sales figures not only the prices secured from the 
sale of merchandise, but also the value of certain services rendered in connection with 
such sales, as in the case of restaurants and garages which do not sell the commodities in 
the same form in which they purchase them. Retailers also included in their reported sales 
receipts from repair work and other services to the extent of $567,767,000. 

In relation to retail stores, the number of wholesale establishments has changed b\>t 
little since 1929. At that time, the proportion of wholesale establishments to retail 
stores was 10.99 percent, while in 1933 it was 10.75 percent. However, the volume of wholesale 
trade dropped proportionately more than the volume of retail business. In 1929 wholesale 
trade was 140.3 percent of the sales reported by retail stores, but in 1933 wholesale trade 
was 128.4 percent of retail store volume. 

The change in volume relationships between wholesale and retail trade may be accounted 
for, principally, in two ways. As already indicated in a preceding paragraph, a large pro- 
portion of wholesale sales represented business done with industrial consumers, with custom- 
ers in foreign lands, and with other wholesale organizations. None of these transactions 
directly affect retail store volume. Furthermore, wholesale trade involves a considerable 
amount of duplication. It is possible that changes in the type of transactions just men- 
tioned, since 1929, have been responsible for a considerable drop in wholesale volume, 
making a close approximation between changes in wholesale and retail trade practically im- 
possible. 

A second factor in the situation is to be found in the relative variability in whole- 
sale and retail prices, since sales volumes are expressed in terms of money. Wholesale 
prices, as a rule, are more sensitive and tend to change more frequently and, over a period 
of time, more radically than in the case of retail prices. For 1929 the composite index of 

9749 



-47- 

wholesale prices for all commodities stood at 95.3; for 1933 this index was 65.9 and 30.8 
percent lower. It is believed that the decline in retail prices for all commodities was 
not as great. This would indicate that retail margins in 1933 were different from those of 
1929 and varied from those of wholesale margins. As a matter of fact, operating expenses 
of wholesale establishments were 29.2 percent higher in 1933 as compared with 1929, while 
operating expenses of retail stores were but 23.2 percent higher in 1933. 

DISTRIBUTION OF WHOLESALE TRADE BY GEOGRAPHIC AREAS 

WHOLESALE TRADE BY GEOGRAPHIC DIVISIONS. — Even a cursory examination of Table III 
will disclose the fact that, geographically, wholesale trad© is highly concentrated. Data 
in Table III are shown for each of nine divisions which have been officially recognized by 
the Bureau of the Census. Since wholesale trade is not usually confined within State bound- 
aries, statistics by geographic divisions may be of greater importance in measuring mark 
et potentialities of different parts of the country. 

The Middle Atlantic, East North Central, and the West North Central divisions account- 
ed for nearly two-thirds (65.4%) of the total volume of wholesale trade in 1933 and for ex- 
actly two-thirds of the business during 1929. If the New England division is added, the 
volume of wholesale business tr?nsacted by the establishments located in these four divi- 
sions represented 72.1 percent of the total volume in 1933 and 72.8 percent of the volume 
of wholesale trade in 1929. 

WHOLESALE TRADE BY STATES. —Almost one-half (48.5%) of the total volume of wholesale 
trade in 1933 was reported by wholesale establishments located in the four States of New 
York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and California. The same fcur States accounted fcr 48.4 per- 
cent of the volume of trade in 1929. An additional six States, consisting, in the crder of 
their importance measured by volume of wholesale trade, of Missouri, Ohio, Massachusetts, 
Texas, Michigan, and Minnesota contributed approximately an additional 23.0 percent so that 
the 10 leading States, from the standpoint of volume of wholesale trade, accounted for 71.5 
percent of all wholesale trade in 1933 and almost a similar proportion of the total (71.8%) 
in 1929. Only 8 of the 48 States reported more than a billion dollars worth of wholesale 
business each during 1933. Together these States made up 65.8 percent of the total volume 
of business during the year, which means that the remaining 34.2 percent of the wholesale 
volume of trade was distributed among 39 States and the District of Columbia, again showing 
an unusually high concentration of business, geographically. 

The principal changes in rank of the various States since 1929, based on wholesale 
trade volume, can be gleaned from Table III and Chart I. While the same 10 States lei in 
the volume of wholesale business during both years, 7 of them have changed in rank in 1933 
from that of 1929. New York, Illinois, and Texas retained their first, second, and eighth 
places, respectively. Michigan and Minnesota have changed places, the latter State moving 
ahead to ninth position. The most notable changes, however, are to be found in the case of 
California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Missouri. California changed places 
with Pennsylvania, moving up from fourth place to third, probably because of the abnormal 
decline in the volume of business in the heavy goods industries which are so important a 
factor in the wholesale trade of Pennsylvania. Ohio and Massachusetts advanced from sixth 
to fifth and from seventh to sixth positions, respectively, while Missouri descended from 
fifth to seventh place. The loss in rank of the State of Missouri iray be explained in part 
by the unusual decline in the business of farm products of the raw material type such as 
live stock. Most of the remaining 38 States also changed rank during 1933, with the most 
radical changes taking places in the States, a large proportion of whose business in 1929

was in farm products, such as grain, live stock, and leaf tobacco, or in the heavy goods 
industries such as machinery, equipment, and metals. 

WHOLESALE TRADE BY COUNTIES. — The tremendous concentration of wholesale trade by 
counties is shown in Table IV below and in Table 9 of this Summary, as well as on the 
accompanying map. Of the total volume of wholesale trade, over one-third (34.9%) was 
accounted for by the four counties of Manhattan borough, New York; Cook, Illinois; Phila- 
delphia, Pennsylvania; and Suffolk, Massachusetts. Each of these counties reported more 
than a billion dollars worth of wholesale trade during 1933. Another 16.3 percent of the 
business was contributed by eight additional counties, each reporting an annual volume of 
business from one-half to one billion dollars. In this group are included, in the order of 
their importance, San Francisco, California; Los Angeles, California; St. Louis City, 
Missouri; Wayne, Michigan; Alleghany, Pennsylvania; Cuyahoga, Ohio; Hennepin, Minnesota; 
and Jackson, Missouri. Thus, over one-half (51.2%) of the wholesale business was transact- 
ed by establishments located within twelve counties, although these counties contained but 
14.5 percent of the total population.

1/ Includes 24 independent cities in Virginia and the independent city of St. 
Louis which have the same status as counties; also the District of Columbia. 

Counties in which wholesale establishments reported an aggregate volume of wholesale 
trade from $100,000,000 to one-half billion dollars, numbered 31 and accounted for 18.8 
percent of all v/holesale business during 1933. An additional 33 counties, each reporting 
from $50,000,000 to $100,000,000 worth of wholesale business contributed 7.3 percent of the 
volume. Altogether, 76 counties and independent cities in the United States, each with 
business of $50,000,000 or over during 1933, contributed $24,842,976,000, or 77.3 percent 
of the total volume of wholesale trade for the entire country. This compares with 127 
counties and independent cities, each with business of $50,000,000 and over, which, during 
1929, accounted for 83.2 percent of the total volume of wholesale trade. 

WHOLESALE TRADE BY CITIES. — An indication of the unsually high concentration of whole- 



9749 



-51- 

sale trade in urban centers is clearly brought out by the data in Table V. Approximately 
three-fourths (75.3%) of all wholesale busir.ess was transacted in 1933 by establishments 
located in the 93 cities having, in 1930, a population of 100,000 or more inhabitants. 
This business was conducted by 73,879 establishments or about 45 percent of the wholesale 
cn'.ablishments in th3 United States. For the year 1929 the same 93 wholesale centers 
contributed 76.8 percent of the volu.r-e cf business and contained a little less than 48 per- 
cent of the wholesale establishments in existence at that tine. It would appear, thtre- 
fore, that regardless of economic conditions, wholesaling is concentrated in large cities 
and that the relative importance of such cities has remained the same during the depress- 
ion. 

Since the 100,000 cities represented a little over 75 percent of the total volume of 
wholesale trade for 1933, but contained only 45 percent of the establishments, it would 
appear that the average size of the business unit is much greater in these cities than in 
other communities. In partial explanation of this condition it should be pointed out that, 
in small communities, there are a large number of assemblers and country buyers of farm 
products which operate on a relatively small scale and thereby reduce the average size of 
the establishment. In such small communities are also found a large number of the cream 
stations and bulk tank stations operating in the petroleum trade, both of which are of re- 
relatively small size. 

Although the larger cities, as a group, dominate the wholesaling picture, there is by 
no means perfect correlation between volume of .vholesale trade and the population within 
the city. The three leading cities in population. New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia, are 
also the leading wholesale centers, but thereafter notable differences are to be found. 
Boston, for exa.'nple, is the fourth largest wholesale center, although it is only ninth in 
population. San Francisco, which ran'.'.s eleventh in population is fifth in wholesale trade; 
St. Louis vvhich ranks seventh in population is sixth in wholesale trade, while Minneapo- 
lis, which is fifteenth in population, ran:.s eleventh in wholesale trade. Conversely, 
there are a number of cities which have a lo^-er rank in wholesale trade than they enjoy in 
population. 

COMPOSITION OF WHOLESALE TRADE 

WHOLESALE TRADE, BY TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT. — Totals for wholesale trade are important 
and interesting, but for "specific application to business problems totals must be broken 
c'- -\ to a considerable extent. For this reason all wholesale establishments have been div- 
ided into six groups, according to tho ''V?^ of establishment or the nature of functions 
performed. Four of these groups have been further subdivided. Each of the types for which 
data are presented in the United States Summary throughout the various tables and for each 
of the States has been defined in Chapter III. In Table 1 (see page A-1) of the United 
States Summary statistics are summarized for each of 19 types of wholesale establishments. 

Of the total number of A-holesale establishments in the United States, 50.5 percent 
were wholesalers proper and 10. 3 percent represented manufacturers' sales branches; 15.9 
percent were bulk tank stations; 0.3 percent constituted chain store warehouses; 14.6 per- 
cent were assemblers and country buyers; while agents and brokers accounted for 8.4 percent 
of the total. The toial volume of wholesale business was distributed as follows: whole- 
salers proper, 40.4 percent; manufacturers' sales branches, 23.5 percent; bulk tank sta- 
tions, 5.9 percent; chain store warehouses, 4.5 percent; assemblers and country buyers, 
5.5 percent; and agents and brokers, 20.2 percent.

For all kinds of business combined, wholesale merchants of the conventional type were 
the most important wholesale organization, both in the number of establishments and the 
volume of business reported. They comprised 76,856 establishments, or 46 . S percent of all 
establishments, doing $11,302,947,000 worth of business, or 35.1 percent of the total. Of 
all w holesalers proper , wholesale merchants constituted 92.7 percent of the number of es 
tablishments, doing 87.0 percent of the business, which means that as far as wholesaler s 
(who take title to the goods and are largely independent in ownership) are concerned, the 
more or less old-fashioned type, service wholesaler, designated as wholesale merchant, is 
still dominant. Limited function wholesalers, on the other hand, comprising a variety of 
relatively newer types such as d"op-shippers, wagon distribut )rs, and cash-and-carry whole 
salers, constituted but 4.1 percent of the number of establishments operated by wholesalers 
proper and transacted but 2.8 percent of the business. When the limited function whole- 
salers are vieived as a part of the entire v/holesaling structure, their importance, from the 
standpoint of both number and volume of business, is still further diminished. 

Second in importance, from the standpoint of net sales, A-ere manufacturers' sales 
branches. Of that group, 73.8 percent carried stocks and did 68.1 percent of the business. 
From the standpoint of numbers, however, bulk tank stations were second in importance, 
followed by as.3emblers and country buyers operating in the agricultural field, and manu- 
facturers' sales branches took fourth place. Among the agents and brokers, manufacturers' 
agents were the most numerous, but commission merchants led from the standpoint of volume 
of business, followed by brokers and selling agents, respectively. 

The foreign trade of the United States was represented by 2,176 importers with a vol- 
ume of business of $776,354,000 and 453 exporters //ith sales of $558,147,000. In addition 
there ,vere 240 export agents with reported sales of $135,126,000 and 179 import agents 
«hose business air.ounted to $50,541,000. The figures on foreign trade presented herein by 
no means represented the entire volume of foreign trade during 1933, since the census is 
based upon establishments and did not cover exports or imports made directly by manufactur- 
ers and other producers, nor does the census show, separately, the volume of import und ex- 
port business done by wholesale establishments which did not specialize in foreign trade. 

The data by type of wholesale establishment, as shown in the several tables, indicate, 
first, the relative inportance of each functional type of organization; second, the varia- 
tion in employment, total expenses, and other items as affected by the type of organiza- 
tion; and third, changes in the relative importance of the different types since 1929 (See 
Chart II) . 

In the light of the various predictions concerning the elimination of the wholesaler, 
it may be interesting to note what changes have taken place since 1929 in the relative 
position of that middleman, as well as of other institutions operating in the wholesale 
field. Reference to Chart II and Table I reveals the fact that wholesalers proper repre- 
sented, in 1933, 50.5 percent of the establishments and 40.4 percent of the volume of busi- 
ness reported by all wholesale places of business, as compared with 47.0 percent of the 
establishments and 42.5 percent of the volume in 1929. Thus, while wholesalers proper 
showed an actual increase in number of 3.9 percent since 1929, a decline in volume of 55.6 
percent, in relation to other wholesale establishments they registered an increase of 3.5 
percent in the number of establishments and a decline of but 2.0 percent in the volume of 
business. These figures indicate not only that wholesalers proper, consisting, for the 
most part, of what may be termed old-fashioned service wholesalers, are the dominant type 
of wholesaling, but also show that this institution has apparently exhibited considerable 
tenacity in the face of adverse circumstances.

Kanufactvirers' sales branches also held their own remarkably well. While they regist- 
ered a decrease in the number of establishments of 1.2 percent since 1929, these branches 
actually increased, in proportion to other types of wholesaling., from 11.2 percent in 1929, 
to 11.5 percent in 1933. The volume of business of these branches declined 53.7 percent, 
?.•? compared with an average decrease for all wholesale establishments of 53.4 percent, 
which means that they maintained the sace relative position during the two periods covered 
by the census. 

Chain store warehouses registered a considerable increase in volume of business, 4.13 
percent of total in 1933 as compared with 2.8 percent for 1929. Of the six type groups by 
which wholesaling operations have been classified, assemblers and country buyers suffered 
the greatest percentage decrease in business, while bulk tank stations experienced the 
smallest decline in volume and showed an actual increase in the number of establisnments. 

WHOLESALE TR-'^DE, BY KIND OF BUSINESS. — In addition to being classified according to 
functional type, each establishment was also classified by kind of business, on the basis 
of the chief line or lines of merchandise in which it dealt. Follo-.ving this basis of clas- 
sification, wholesale establishments were divided into twenty-five major kind-of-business 
groups, which were furtner sub-divided into 166 detailed kind of business classifications 
according to the degree of merchandise specialization. For example, a wholesaler of silks 
and velvets obviously deals in dry goods and must, therefore, be classified in the dry 
goods group. However, it would not be proper to compare the operations of such a concern 
with those of wholesalers of notions or with v,-holesalers handling a general line of dry 
goods. For this reason the establishment wholesaling silks and velvets, while included in 
the dry goods group total, is classified under the subdivision "piece goods" so that com-- 
parisons may be made of homogeneous businesses. 

The importance of breaking down wholesale establishments into detailed kind-of-busi- 
ness classifications becomes apparent as soon as one attempts to make specific use of the 
figures. Trade associations, code authorities, economists, and statisticians may thus 
determine, from the data shown in Tables 2-^ (see page A-2) and 2-B (see page .A-5), the 
total number of wholesale establishments operating in a given line of business, their net 
sales, operating expenses, the average number of full-time employees engaged in such trade, 
the pay roll disbursed during the year 1933, and the stocks on hand at the end of the year. 
These data can be compared, first, with similar information for 1929 in order to discern 
changes and, second, with similar data for other kinds of business as a means of determin- 
ing the relative importance, operating costs, etc. of the kind of business under considera- 
tion. 

Total stocks on hand in the various wholesale establishments operating in a given line 
of business constitute an interesting and important item of informaticn, showing the amounts 
cf merchandise in the wholesale channels at a given time. It is of utmost importance, how- 
over, not to confuse kind of business information v.lth commodity data. The two are quite 
different. For example, wholesale establishments are classified as electric refrigerator 
concerns because the bulk of t".;air business is in such merchandise and not because they 
handle refrigerators to the exclusion of all other goods. On the other hand, electric re- 
frigerators are handled also by wholesale establishments in the automotive trade, by hard- 
ware wholesalers, and by wholesalers engaged principally in the sale of other merchandise 
than electrical goods. Consequently, it woul-^. "..e erroneous to regard the business of elec- 
tric refrigerator wholesale establishments "s synonymous with the business in electric re- 
frigerators as a commodity.

The largest number of wholesale establishments operated in the petroleum buiness, 
followed by those dealing in groceries and foods; farm products-consumer goods; farm pro- 
ducts-raw materials; and machinery, equipment, and supplies. These five lines of trade 
accounted for 104,214 establishments or 63.5 percent of the total. However, from the 
standpoint of volume of business, as shown in Tables 2-A and 2-B and on Chart III, grocer- 
ies and foods led all of the 25 kind-of-business groups, comprising 23.6 percent of the 
total volume of wholesale trade. Next in importance were the establishments dealing in 
farm products of the raw material type, with 12.1 percent of the business, followed by farm 
products-consumer goods, with 9.9 percent; petroleum and its products, with 7.1 percent; 
and dry goods, with 7.0 percent. While establishments dealing in petroleum and its pro- 
ducts led in numbers, they contributed but 7.1 percent of the volume of wholesale trade, 
thus occupying fourth place on the basis of net sales. Other lines of trade with more than 
one billion dollars worth of business during the year were metals (except scrap) and mach- 
inery, equipment, and supplies. Thus, the seven kind-of-business groups reporting on 
annual volume of more than a billion dollars made up slightly more than two-thirds (67.4 
percent) of the business. 

Examination of the data in Tables 2-A and 2-B reveals the high degree to which whole- 
saling permeates the various lines of trade. Instead of being confined, as has been popu- 
larly believed, to so-called "jobbing" lines such as groceries, hardware, drugs, and dry 
goods, there is hardly a line of trade of any importance which does not move through whole- 
sale channels, regardless of the newness of the products involved. These tables also show 
to what extent wholesale establishments specialized in the kind of merchandise handled. 
From such data it is possible to ascertain, for example, just how many wholesale establish- 
ments carried a general line of dry goods, how many of them confined themselves to knit 
goods, notions, or piece goods. Similar information can be obtained for the various lines 
of trade, showing not only the number of establishments carrying limited lines or general 
lines of a given type of merchandise, but the relative importance of each as measured by 
volume of business and their relative efficiency as measured by total operating expenses. 

While it is true that kinds of business are not analogous to commodities, a rough re- 
lationship between the two does no doubt exist. Grocery wholesalers do sell, for the most 
part, grocery commodities, although some of the grocery commodities are also sold by whole- 
salers in other kinds of business. Nevertheless, on the basis of the rough relationship 
herein pointed out an examination of Tables 2-A and 2-B and Chart III yields interesting 
facts relative to elasticity of demand for various classes of commodities. 

According to the figure presented in those tables, it would appear that the volume of 
trade in necessities such as groceries and foods, farm products-consumer goods, and the 
like, increased in relative importance during 1933 as the total volume of wholesale trade 
declined in comparison to 1929. It will be noted that the sales of groceries and foods 
constituted 23.6 percent of the total volume of wholesale trade in 1933 and but 19.2 per- 
cent of the business reported for 1929. Farm products-consumer goods increased in relative 
proportion from 8.4 percent for 1929 to 9.9 percent in 1933. Other significant increases 
in relative importance are to be noted for dry goods, petroleum and its products, and to- 
bacco and its products, all of which have come to be regarded as necessities. On the other 
hand, durable goods as well as goods intended primarily for industrial consumption, have 
suffered the greatest decline as the income of the people of the United States fell pre- 
cipitously since 1929. Large decreases are to be found in farm products-raw materials, 
which accounted for 17.0 percent of all trade in 1929, but only 12.1 percent of the whole- 
sale business for 1933; metals (except scrap) declined from 6.4 percent to 3.8; electrical 
goods from 3.5 to 2.2; lumber and building materials from 3.1 to 1.6; and automotive pro- 
ducts from 3.3 to 2.7. Little change had apparently taken place in certain of the semi- 

9749 



-59- 

durable lines of merchandise. Evidence to that effect is sho^fn by the volume of business 
in the clothing and furnishings trade, ffhich claimed 3.2 percent of the total in 1929 as 
against 3.1 percent of the total during 1933. Similarly, the position of the hardware 
trade was about the same, with 1.3 percent of the total in 1929 and 1.2 percent in 1933. 

TYPES OF ESTABLISHMENTS, BY KIND OF BUSINESS. — Important as it is to have information 
for each kind of business or line of trade in detail, it is even more significant to have 
such data presented separately for each type of wholesaling organization. This has been 
done in Table 2-B of the reports. In that manner the accomplishments of a wholesale r in a 
given line of business may be compared with the accomplishments of all wholes a lers operat- 
ing therein, while the achievements of a manufacturers ' sales b ranch can be compared with 
those of manufacturers' sa les branch es in the same line of trade. Such comparisons are of 
special interest to individual business enterprises and to the student of marketing. 

Moreover, the information contained in Table 2-B is specific and pointed. To illus- 
trate, under Wholesalers Proper, the classification known as "Groceries and Foods (except 
farm products)" is shown to be composed of wholesalers handling a general line of grocer- 
ies, .vholesalers specializing in confectionery and soft drinks, wholesalers of fish and sea 
foods, wholesalers of meats and meat products, and wholesalers handling other food and gro- 
cery specialties. For the entire grocery and food group the figures for 1933 show an in- 
crease in the number of establishments of 18.8 percent, as compared with 1929. However, 
wholesalers of general line groceries decreased in numbers during the same period by 35.0 
percent, while wholesalers of confectionery and soft drinks increased in numbers by 41.0 
percent. The increase in the number of establishments specializing in fish and sea foods 
was 29.7 percent, in the case of meats and meat products the increase was 2.5 percent, 
while wholesalers dealing in other food and grocery specialties a little more than doubled 
in the number of establishments. Obviously, the figure showing a change in the total num- 
ber of wholesalers dealing in groceries and foods would be of little value to a wholesaler 
handling a general line of such items, or to any of the wholesalers specializing in some 
limited line of groceries. 

From the standpoint of business volume, a detailed kind of business analysis throws 
much additional light. Illustrating again with wholesalers dealing in groceries and foods, 
the decrease in business in 1933 as compared with 1929 for the group as a whole was 42.1 
percent, although the number of establishments for the group as a whole increased 18.8 per- 
cent. In contrast to the increase in the number of establishments for the group as a whole 
it is significant to note that wholesalers handling a general line of groceries decreased 
in numbers to the extent of 35.0 percent but the decline in their business was only 51.7 
percent. On the other hand, wholesalers specializing in confectionery and soft drinks, 
while showing a healthy growth in numbers (41.0 percent increase) reported a decline in 
volume for the group of 30.0 percent. Similarly interesting is the fact that wholesalers 
dealing in "other food and grocery specialties" siiov/ed an increase of 100.7 percent in the 
number of establishments but a decline in volume of business of 21.4 percent. From these 
figures it would appear that, on the basis of average sales per establishment, general line 
wholesale grocers fared better during the depression that did specialty wholesalers in the 
grocery business. 

Operating expenses reveal other important differences between wholesale establishments 
of the same type due largely to differences in the degree of specialization in merchandise. 
Wholesalers handling a general line of groceries reported a cost of doing business of 9.9 
percent of net sales, as against 14.3 percent for specialty wholesalers in the grocery 
uasiness, 14.5 percent for wholesalers of meats and meat products, 18.4 percent for whole- 

9749 



-60- 

salers of confectionery and soft drinks, and 19.7 percent for wholesalers of fish and sea 
foods. 

From the statistics presented in Table 2-B, it should be possible for every wholesale 
establishment to compare its accomplishments with those of others operating on a similar 
basis. It should also be possible for anyone interested in a single line of busine.>=:s to 
compile from the dsta in Table 2-B a table which sets forth the relevant information by 
type of establishment in detail. An example cf such a compilation for wholesalers proper 
in the hardware trade is appended below. Those interested only in wholesalers proper hand- 
ling a general line of hardware may exclude from the figures, concerns dealing in hard- 
ware specialty lines exclusively. 

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF WHOLESALE TRADE 

SOURCES OF REVENUE FOR WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS .—Table 3 (see page A-26) shows the 
composition of v/holesale trade by sources of revenue. It shows to what extent the reported 
sales consisted of inccme from the sale of merchandise, or were in the form of receipts 
from rentals cf space, machinery, etc. Of the $32, 151,373, 000 net sales reported by all whole- 
sale establishments for 1933, the sale of merchandise represented $31,884,432,000. or 99.2 
percent. The remaining $266,941,000 or 0.8 percent of the business was secured from the 
following sources: receipts frcm parking, storage, cleaning, etc., $62,047,000; receipts 
from space rental, $5,076,000; receipts from other sources, primarily rental of machinery 
and motior picture films, $199,818,000, 

The amusement and sporting goods trade led in the importance of income from sources 
other than the sale of merchandise, principlaly because in that trade are included motion 
picture film exchanges whose product is distributed on a rental basis instead of being sold 
outright. Next in importance was the automotive products trade, with receipts from park- 
ing, storage, cleaning, etc., consisting to a considerable extent of revenue from repair 
work. For the same reason, machinery, equipment and supply concerns were third in import- 
ance; also because certain kinds of machinery are distributed on a rental basis. The twc 
other important lines of trade in this respect were farm products-raw materials, and elec- 
trical goods, respectively, the first involving a considerable amount of storage and the 
second, mostly repair work.

It is significant, however, that so little of the income derived by wholesale estab- 
lishments had come from sources other than the sale of merchandise. It is probable that, 
with a few exceptions, receipts from services were secondary in nature and that such ser- 
vices were performed incidentally to the major operation of the business. 

CREDIT BUSINESS OF WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS. — Every wholesale establishment was re- 
quested to report how much of its total receipts during 1933 represented credit business. 
They were further instructed to include in the credit figures all sales made on weekly, 10- 
day, 30-day, end-of-month, instalment or on any other credit basis. However, not all of 
the establishments reported on this item. Whether the failure to reply to this inquiry de- 
notes strictly cash business or represents an omission is difficult to say, the presumption 
being that it probably means that in most such cases business was done on a cash basis. 
Data on credit sales are shown in Table 4 (see page A-27) . They are first summarized for 
each of the 19 types of wholesale organizations and then shown by twenty-five kinds of 
business under each of these 19 wholesale types. 

Of the 164,170 wholesale establishments, 111,481 or 67.9 percent reported their credit 
business. The establishments so reporting represented 69.0 percent of the total volume of 
wholesale trade. For these establishments credit business constituted 82.4 percent of 
their net sales. Surprising as it may seem, manufacturers' sales branches reported a lar- 
ger portion of business on credit than did wholesalers proper, the percentages being 92.0 
as against 80.4. Moreover, sales branches without stocks sold 95.9 percent of their goods 
on credit, as compared with 90.6 percent credit business for sales branches with stocks. 
As many as SB.O percent of the bulk tank stations operated on a credit basis, selling 56.4 
percent of their goods on credit, while onljr 24.7 percent of the chain store warehouses 
extended credit to customers, but the sales of such warehouses that were made on credit 
terms constituted 66.4 percent of their net sales. 

While the figures on credit sales reported by bulk tank stations may appear surpris- 
ing, the fact remains that most filling stations to which they sell are independently owned 
and operated. In the case of chain store warehouses, the 24.7 percent of the establish- 
ments reporting credit sales made up but a small proportion of the business of the group, 
so that their credit sales amounted only to 5 percent of the sales made by all warehouses. 

Another interesting feature is revealed by the credit sales data for agents and brok- 
ers. While only 56.4 percent of such functional middlemen operated on a credit basis, 
their sales on time represented 90.4 percent of their total volume. Selling agents appar- 
ently found it necessary to extend credit more extensively than any other type of function- 
al middlemen. Over three-fourths of the selling agents (75.8 percent) extended this privi- 
lege to their customers and in such cases practically all of their sales were made on cre- 
dit (97.9 percent). Credit as a selling device was utilized the least by cream stations, 
probably because most of them are owned and operated by larger companies for whom such pro- 
ducts are bought, followed next by assemblers of farm products. As a group, assemblers and 
country buyers made the least use of credit, partly for the reason mentioned under cream 
stations and partly because they deal in raw commodities for which there is a ready cash 
market at all times. 

Even for a given type of wholesaling, the amount of business done on a credit basis 
varied considerably with the line of trade involved. For example, in the case of wholesale 
merchants, 74.3 percent presumably operated on a credit basis, selling 80.5 percent of 
their goods on such a basis. However, in the hardware trade, 91.2 percent of the wholesale 
merchants extended credit, making such sales to the extent of 88.3 percent of their total.

On the other hand, only 35.9 percent of the wholesale merchants operating in the v/aste mat- 
erial business sold on credit, but the volume of credit business represented 84.3 percent 
of the net sales of those reporting on the item. Judging on the basis of the numbe r of 
w holesa le merchant s selling on credit, the following lines of trade led in the order men- 
tioned: hardware, paper and its products, plumbing and heating equipment and supplies, dry- 
goods, lumber and building materials, chemicals, and electrical goods. On the basis of the 
total volume of credit b usiness as a percent of net sales of the corcerns reporting on the 
iteir, wholesale merchants in the general merchandise field occupied first place, followed 
by those dealing in dry goods, clothing and furnishings, metals (except scrap), and paper 
and its products. 

Obviously, credit was used to a larger extent in domestic trade than in foreign comm- 
erce, at least a? far as wholesale establishments are concerned. While 88.1 percent of the 
importers sold on credit, only 51.7 percent of the exporters operated on such a basis. 
Furthermore, of those reporting credit business, in the case of importers, 86.0 percent of 
the volume represented credit sales, as compared with 67.3 percent of the volume of export- 
ers reporting credit business. 

The use of credit was apparently so pervasive that even limited function wholesalers 
which include, among others, cash-and-carry wholesalers, found it necessary to resort to it 
of this group, 49.0 percent extended credit accommodations, selling 78.6 percent of their 
goods on such terms. The extent of credit sales by wholesale establishments indicates the 
degree to which the wholesaling structure is called upon to finance the business of their 
customers, thereby lessening the burden of financial institutions. Thus, trade credit in 
the mercantile field, as evidenced by the census figures, is an important suppleirent to the 
.financial credit extended by banks, finance companies, and other such institutions. 

DISTRIBUTION OF SALES BY OUTLETS. — In this census, information was obtained from the 
various wholesale establishments relative to the major types of customers served by them. 
Each respondent was requested to indicate the portion of total sales of the establishment 
made: (1) to retailers (for rissale), (2) to home consumers (at retail), and (3) to indus- 
trial users. Of the 164,170 wholesale establishments covered by the census, 134,335 or 
81.8 percent were able to furnish this information directly from their books cr on the 
basis of carefully prepared estimates. These establishments represented 81.7 percent of 
the total volume of wholesale trade. The distribution of their sales, as shown in Table 5 
(see page A-36) and on Chart IV, was as follows: 52.2 percent to retailers, 28.8 percent to 
industrial users, and 2.2 percent to home consuirers. The remainder, consisting of 16.8 
percent, obviously represented sales made by one wholesale establishment to another. Par- 
ticularly is this latter practice true of such wholesale types as agents and brokers and of 
assemblers and country buyers. In many cases this item was checked by correspondence with 
respondents, in order to insure accurate treatment of the data. 

It is thus possible, for the first time, to deternine, with a fair degree of exact- 
ness, the amount of duplication involved in v^holesale trade figures, i. e., the extent to 
which the same goods were sold two or more times at wholesale. If it is assumed that the 
81.8 percent of the establishments, reporting a distribution of their sales, are represen- 
tative of all the establishments covered by the census, the above percentages may be appli- 
ed to total sales in order to determine the tota l dollar volume of business flowing through 
wholesale channels to the various types of outlets.

SALES TO RETAILERS. — Obviously, not all types of wholesale organizations sold the same 
proportion of goods to a given outlet (see Chart V). Chain store warehouses, most of which 
supply their own stores, reported 82.7 percent of their business to retail stores. The re- 
mainder of their business consisted primarily in sales to other wholesale organization. In 
this latter figure are included sales of merchandise of own manufacture made to wholesalers 
as well as sales by such concerns as the Atlantic Commission Company which sells farm pro- 
duce to other middlemen in addition to supplying the needs of the parent organization — 
The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company. Bulk tank stations which are similar in many 
respects to chain store warehouses, reported 76.7 percent of their business to retailers, 
26.8 percent to industrial users, 3.3 percent to home consumers, and but 6.6 percent to 
petroleum marketers and to other v/holesale organizations. As was to be expected, whole- 
salers proper dealt primarily with retailers, 63.4 percent of their business being account- 
ed for by sales to retail outlets. It is significant that such a large proportion of the 
business of manufacturers' sales branches also represented sales to retailers (46.4 per- 
cent) and the same may be said of assemblers and country buyers and of agents and brokers 
(see Table VI). 

SALES TO HOME CONSUMERS. — The home consumer normally buys goods at retail for personal 
or family consumption. When so purchased, commodities are completely removed from trade 
channels. While it is not the general practice of wholesale houses to sell directly to the 
public for personal consumption, and i.o establishment has been included in the wholesale 
census whose major operations involved dealings with home consumers, many wholesale organi- 
zations do sell limited quantities of goods to ultimate consumers. The smallest proportion 
of total sales made to home consumers was reported by chain store warehouses, followed by 
agents and brokers. Bulk tank stations sold as high as 7.6 percent of their volume in such 
manner, with wholesalers proper taking second position with 3.2 percent of their volume thus 
disposed of. To what extent such sales were made as a matter of accommodation or as a mat- 
ter of regular business practice is somewhat difficult to state. 

SALES TO INDUSTRIAL USERS. — As already indicated in a* previous connection, a large 
number of wholesale establishments dealt in industrial goods. Such products are sold pri- 
marily to factories, oil wells, mines and quarries, hotels, public utilities, railroads, 
institutions, and to various wholesale, retail, and service places of business. The goods 
so purchased are either converted into more finished products or are used in the conduct of 



9749 



-67- 

the business rather than for resale in the same form. Such goods consequently consist of 
ra'ii materials, semi-manufacturers, parts, machinery, equipment, and supplies. The largest 
proportion of business consisting of sales to industrial users was reported by agents and 
brokers. 

The kinds of business leading in sales to industrial users vary, depending upon the 
type of agency involved. To illustrate, the bulk of the sales to industrial users reported 
by selling agents was in the dry goods trade. About one-half of the sales to industrial 
users reported by manufacturers' agents were made in two lines of trade, namely, dry goods, 
and machinery, equipient, and supplies. On the other hand, the largest proportion of sales 
to industrial users reported by commission merchants was in the farm prcducts-raw material 
trade, followed by dry goods, while in the case of brokers considerably over one-half of 
the sales made to industrial users was concentrated in the grocery and food trade and in 
farm products of the raw material type. 

Next to agents and brokers, assemblers and country buyers led in the proportion of 
their sales made to industrial users, followed by manufacturers' sales branches and then by 
wholesalers proper. The smallest volume of such business was reported by chain store ware- 
house?. However, from the standpoint of total business done with industrial users, whole- 
salers proper took first place, agent? and brokers were second in importance, and manufac- 
turers' sales branches ranked third. Not unlike the case illustrated above in connection 
with agents and brokers, considerable variation may be noted in the relative importance of 
sales to industrial users, according tc the kind of business in which the wholesale estab- 
lishments operated. For example, sales to industrial users reported by manufacturers' 
sales branches with stocks, were made principally by the establishments operating in the 
machinery, equipment, and supply trade; in the electrical trade; in groceries and foods; 
and in chemicals. Sales to industrial users reported by manufacturers' sales branches with- 
out stocks operated mainly in the metal (except scrap) trade, followed by the machinery, 
equipment, and supplies trade and by the dry goods trade, 

DUPLICATION OF WHOLESALE SALES. — A principal contribution to our knowledge of the sub- 
ject made by the data presented in Table VI above, and in Table 5 of the wholesale census 
reports, lies in the information on sales to other wholesale organizations. For the first 
time it has been possible to secure reliable statistics on duplication cf sales by whole- 
sale establishments. Of the total sales broken down by outlets, 16.8 percent represented 
the extent to v/hich wholesale houses sold to one another. It is probable that if a break- 
dov.'n had been obtained for all establishments, the percentage of duplication v/culd have 
been somswhat larger. The schedule used in the Census of American Business did not speci- 
fically provide for a report on sales to other wholesale organizations. This information 
was obtained primarily by subtracting from total net sales of those establishments which 
reported a break-down, the sum of their sales to retailers, to home consumers, and to in- 
dustrial users. It may well be that some establishments failed to give a distribution of 
their sales because none of their business involved sales to retailers, to home consumers, 
or to industrial users, but consisted instead of sales to other wholesale organizations. 

Nevertheless, it is significant that 84.8 percent of the agents and brokers who report- 
ed a distribution of sales by outlets, indicated duplication only to the extent of 32.5 
percent of their business. For some time it has been assumed by students of distribution 
that practically all sales made by agents and brokers were of this type. A similar revela- 
tion is to be found in connection v/ith assemblers and country buyers which reported only 
31.7 percent of their business as consisting in sales to other wholesale establishments. 
The least amount of duplication was reported by bulk tank stations, followed by wholesalers

proper. Of the $11,838,698,000 *orth of business of wholesalers proper that was broken 
down by outlets, only $784,232,000 or 6.6 percent represented sales made by one wholesaler 
to another. The figures in Table 5 of the United States Summary also indicate that the 
principal competitor of the conventional wholesaler is not the newer type wholesaler but 
the manufacturer's sales branch and that the wholesaler must compete directly, to a con- 
siderable extent, with agents and brokers, and to some degree also with assemblers and 
country buyers. 

EMPLOYMENT IN WHOLESALE TRADE. —The wholesale establishments of the United States em- 
ployed during 1933, an average of 1,096,977 full-time paid employees and 125,943 part-time 
employees. In addition, they used the full-time services of 94,487 proprietors and firm 
members, thus providing employment for 1,317,407 persons. This number constituleo a group 
larger than the population of Los Angeles, California and almost equal to the combined 
population of Boston and Pittsburgh. The significance of wholesale trade as a s-urce of 
employment is indicated largely in Table 6, (see page A-46) although the other tables also 
throw light on the subject. 

The largest number of full-time employees //as absorbed by the grocery and food trade. 
Next in importance was farm products-consumer goods, and third position was occupied by 
petroleum and its products. These three kinds of business together gave employment to 
464,644 men and women on a full-time basis, representing 42.4 percent of all full-time paid 
employees engaged in wholesale distribution. 

The total number of full-time and part-time employees was divided into 1,003,097 males 
and 219,823 females. The estimate, by sex, is based on the sex distribution reported for 
the total number of employees as of December 30, 1933; the percent of women shown separate- 
ly relates to the same date. Women employed in wholesale trade constituted 17.9 percent of 
all paid employees. This ratio varied considerably with the lines of trade. It was as 
low as 5.8 percent in the petroleum trade, and as high as 39.4 percent in the amusement and 
sporting goods trade. Second in importance, from the standpoint of employment of women in 
relation to total, was clothing and furnishings with 33.8 percent, followed by drugs and 
drug sundries with 30.6 percent. The trades showing the smallest relative employment of 
women, other than petroleum, were lumber and building materials, coal, and automotive pro- 
ducts. 

Table 6 also presents the number of full-time and part-time employees as of the fif- 
teenth of each month, for each kind-of-business group, and a monthly index of employment 
for wholesale trade as a whole. If the average number of full-time eaployees be expressed 
as 100, October, Never ber and December showed an improve.iient over January, February, and 
March of 11 points. Similarly, the peak of part-time employment was reached in November, 
which was 24 points higher than the low recorded in March. 

The figures in Table 6 show both seasonal variations in wholesale business as a whole, 
and in different lines of trade, and they also reflect a cyclical improvement which became 
especially noticeable during the last five months of 1933. Just how much of the variation 
is due to one or the other of the tv;o major factors, can not be stated with accuracy, for 
it is probable that some lines of trade responded more quickly to betterments of a cyclical 
nature than was true of others. To measure exactly the effect upon employment in the differ- 
ent lines of trade, of improvements in general business conditions as distinguished from 
seasonal fluctuations, would require a knowledge that can not be gleaned directly from the 
figures presented in the census. 

9749 



-69- 

As compared with 1929, the average number of employees, full-time and part-time com- 
bined, engaged in wholesale trade during 1933. was 23.6 percent lower. The total pay roll 
of such employees, on the other hand, declined 42.9 percent. On the average, the decrease 
in earnings of employees engaged in wholesale trade approximated 25 percent. Inasmuch as 
the cost of living index declined about the same amount durirg the period in question, the 
decrease in average earnings per employee in wholesale trade was about equal to the decline 
in the cost of living. 

INVENTORIES OF WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS. — One of the primary functions of wholesale 
places of business is to maintain surplus reserves of commodities at strategic points 
throughout the Nation. Only in that way can retailers secure prompt delivery of goods 
ordered, and thus operate at reasonable cost and with a minimum of stock. It is also gen- 
erally recognized that wholesale organizations as a group can store goods probably with 
greater economy than either producer or retailer. The extent to which wholesale establish- 
ments perform this function is indicated, in part, by statistics showing stocks on hand at 
the end of the year, valued at cost or at replacement prices. While it is possible that 
the inventories as of the end of the year were not representative of the volume of goods 
kept in stock throughout the year, the figures are, nevertheless, worth while, at least for 
comparison purposes. 

All wholesale establishments maintained a total of $3,013,179,000 in inventories, the 
equivalent of 9.4 percent of net sales (see Tables 1, 2A, and 2B) . Wholesalers proper acc- 
ounted for the largest proportion of this total, maintaining inventories to the extent cf 
$1,982,758,000 or 15.3 percent of their net sales. Of this group, wholesale merchants 
maintained the most important reservoir of merchandise inventories. Their stocks represen- 
ted 15.4 percent of net sales. At the other extreme, under wholesalers proper, were the 
limited function wholesalers with inventories comprising 4.4 percent of their net sales. 

It is interesting to note that manufacturers' sales branches with stocks carried sub- 
stantial inventories, the ratio of inventories to sales being 10.7 percent. The smallest 
inventories, in proportion to sales volume, wore reported, naturally, by agents and brok- 
ers, followed by chain store warehouses and bulk tank stations. Substantial variations in 
the amount of stock carried, in relation tc sales, may also be noted as between the various 
kinds of business or trade groups, shown in Table 2A and 2B. 

Attention must be called to the fact that the above ratios do not represent stock-turn 
figures, inasmuch as the stocks on hand are shown at cost or replacement values, whereas 
sales are given at selling prices. In order to obtain approximate stock-turn figures, it 
would be necessary to reduce the sales of the wholesale establishments involved to a cost 
bwSis, by subtracting therefrom total operating expenses, v.'Uich tray be presumed to have 
approximated gross margins during 1933. 

DISTRIBUTION OF NET SALES BY SIZE OF ESTABLISHMENT .--Table 7 (see page A-47) presents 
data for wholesale merchants and for manufacturers' sales branches, by size of establishment 
and kind of business. It shows for each kind of business, by size groups, the number of 
establishments; the average number of full-time employees; and total expenses, expressed in 
amounts and as a percent of net sales. The relative importance of establishments in the 
various size groups operated by wholesale merchants is depicted en Chart VI. 

Of the 79,032 establishments operated ty wholesale merchants, 43,447 or 55.0 percent 
had an annual average sales vclume of less than $50,000, and accounted for but 6.3 percent 
of the business of all wholesale merchants. This compares with 30.8 percent of the estab- 
lishments with less than an average of $50,000 in annual sales during 1929, doing 1.8 per- 
cent of the total business for the year. Thus, wholesale establishments with sales under

$50,000 were relatively more important during 1933 both from the standpoint of numbers and 
the proportion of net sales for the year. Over one-sixth (15.8 percent) of all wholesale 
merchant establishments during 1933 reported an average annual business of $50,000 to 
$100,000, as compared with almost a similar proportion (15.4 percent) of the wholesale mer- 
chant establishments during 1929 appearing in the same size group. However, the establish- 
ments in this size group during 1933 contributed 7.3 percent of the total volume of whole- 
sals trade, while those in 1929 contributed only 3.3 percent of the total volume. At the 
other extreme one finds 36.9 percent of the business reported by all wholesale merchant 
establishments in the hands of 1.827 units, with a million dollars and over per annum, 
which constituted but 2.3 percent of all such establishments, while an additional 16.5 per- 
cent of the business was reported by 3.7 percent of the establishments with average annual 
sales of $500,000 to $1,000,000. It would thus appear that 70.8 percent of the establish- 
ments operated by wholesale merchants, with annual sales during 1933 under $100,000, acc- 
ounted for 13.6 percent of the volume of business, while 6 percent of the establishments, 
with annual net sales of $500,000 and over, contributed 53.4 percent of the business. 

OPERATING EXPENSES IN WHOLESALE TRADE 

It is probable that, with the exception of the first Census of Wholesale Distribution, 
this Census presents a more comprehensive analysis of expenses incurred in the wholesaling 
of goods, than has ever before been available on so wide a scale. The 164,170 wholesale 
establishments in the United States expended a total of $3,710,233,000 in operating costs. 
T.'-.ls figure, which constitutes 11.5 percent of total net sales by all wholesale establish- 
ments, has significance only in a general way. It indicates the net wholesale m rgin or 
the amount which wholesale organizations added to the cost of goods sold in 1933, as a re- 
sult of actual money outlays incident to such business. Since no figures were secured on 
net profits or on the cost of goods sold, the actual wholesale mark-up can only be estimat- 
ed. In the wholesale field, however, net profit percentages are usually so small, and this 
was particularly true during 1933, that it may well be assumed that total expenses approxi- 
mated gross margins. 

OPERATING EXPENSES IN RELATION TO TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT. — Total expenses varied con- 
siderably with the type of wholesaling and with the line of trade involved. For wholesal- 
ers proper they represented 15.0 percent of net sales, while manufacturers' sales branches 
had a cost of only 12.5 percent. Bulk tank stations reported a cost of doing business of 
19.7 percent; chain store warehouses, 4.5 percent; assemblers and country buyers, 9.8 per- 
cent; and agents and brokers, 3.2 percent. Even within a given type group considerable 
differences may be noted in costs of doing business. To illustrate, under the "wholesalers 
pr.-psr" group, wholesale merchants reported total expenses of 15.8 percent, while exporters 
had a cost of only 6.1 percent. Similarly, brokers had total expenses of 1.7 percent, 
while costs of doing business reported by manufacturers' agents represented 6.8 percent of 
their sales. Such variations in cost are no doubt explained to a large degree by the differ- 
ences in functions performed. 

OPERATING EXPENSES IN RELATION TO KIND OF BUSINESS. — Considerable differences in costs 
of doing business may also be noted as between different kinds of business. Wholesale mer- 
chants, for example, while reporting a cost of 15.8 percent for all kinds of business com- 
bined, reported total expenses of 24.6 percent in amusements and sporting goods group, 23.1 
percent in the automotive products group, 20.4 percent in chemicals, 16.0 percent in cloth- 
ing and furnishings, 13.1 percent in coal, 16.6 percent in drugs and drug sundries, 13.5 
percent in dry goods, 22.3 percent in electrical goods, 7.8 percent in farm products-raw 
materials, 14.9 percent in farm products-consumer goods, etc. Even within a single kind- 
of-business group and a given type of wholesale organization expenses varied as between the 

9749 



—^■' —' ' 



-72- 

different kind-of-business sub-groups. In the chemical group, for example, establishments 
specializing in naval stores had a cost of doing business of 3.6 percent of sales, while 
those dealing primarily in paints and varnishes had a cost as high as 27.2 percent. In the 
case of drugs and drug sundries, wholesale merchants handling a general line cf drugs oper- 
ated at a cost of 15.1 percent of sales, while those specializing in toilet articles and 
preparations reported a cost of 32.0 percent. Thus, the range of expense ratios, by types 
of wholesale dist ributio n, for all kinds of business combined, showed a variation from a 
low of 1.7 percent for brokers, to a high of 19.7 percent for bulk tank stations. By kind 
of business, for all types of distributors combined, the range of expense ratios showed a 
variation from a low of 2.1 for dealers in live stock to a high of 43.4 for establishments 
dealing in musical instruments and sheet music. 

OPERATING EXPENSES IN RELATION TO STOCKS ON HAND. —Scire of the variation in the cost 
of doing business of different wholesale organizations in a given line of business, rr cf 
the same type of wholesale organization in different lines of business, is due to the na- 
ture of the functions performed. Service wholesalers which perform practically all of the 
wholesaling functions and are designated for census purposes as "wholesale merchants" would 
naturally be expected to operate at a relatively high cost. Not only do they carry adequate 
stocks, but they also grant credit, furnish delivery service, assist and advise their cus- 
tomers, etc. In contrast to wholeaale merchants are limited function wholesalers who oper- 
ated at a cost of 11.5 percent of sales, due principally to a curtailment in services. 
This fact stands out prominently in connection with manufacturers' sales branches. Those 
branches which did not carry stocks had a cost of doing business of 7.4 percent of net' 
sales. Such cost was a little more than double (14.9 percent) for sales branches with 
stocks. 

OPERATING EXPENSES IN RELATION TO CREDIT BUSINESS. —The excellent correlation between 
expenses and functions has already been suggested through the stocks carried, ■ which involve 
the performance of the warehousing function. This is further corroborated by the expenses 
of concerns operating on a credit basis. A comparison of total expenses in Table 1 and 2B 
with those shown in Table 4 reveals the fact that in practically all cases concerns extend- 
ing credit to their customers had a higher cost of doing business, as might well be expect- 
ed. While total expenses for all wholesale establishments were 11.5 percent of sales, for 
those operating on a credit basis they constituted 13.4 percent of sales. This is but a 
rough comparison. To determine the extent of the difference exactly, it would be necessary 
to subtract the sales of concerns reporting credit business from the total sales of all es- 
tablishments, in order to ascertain the volume of business done by establishments which 
presumably sold strictly for cash. It would then be necessary to deduct the total expenses, 
in dollars, incurred by the establishments operating on a credit basis, from the total ex- 
penses reported by all wholesale establishments. When the difference in operating expense 
amounts is divided by the sales of concerns presuirably selling for cash only, it appears 
that their costs of doing business were 7.5 percent of sales, as compared with 13.4 percent 
for those selling on credit. Nevertheless, even a rough compariscn is illuminating. 

For all wholesalers proper, total expenses were 15.0 percent of net sales, compared to 
15.8 percent for those operating on a credit basis. Expenses of all wholesale merchants 
(a subdivision of wholesalers proper) were 15.8 percent; of those extending credit, 16.5 
percent. 'In the case of exporter.*, operating expenses of those doing business on credit 
were 7.9 percent of sales, as against 6.1 percent for all exporters. 

Table VIII has been designed to show the expense ratios of establishments operated by 
wholesale merchants (service wholesalers) on a credit basis in comparison with those which 

9749 



-73- 

did not report credit sales and are therefore presumed to have sold only for cash. These 
expense ratios, expressed in percentages of net sales, are sho./n for each of the 25 kind-of 
business groups. The table also shows the average sales per establishment on a kind-of- 
business basis for credit and non-credit establishments, respectively. 

In 14 of the 25 kind-of-business groups in which who lesale me rchan ts operated, operat- 
ing expenses of those extending credit accommodations to their customers were higher than 
for those which did not render the credit function. In three kind-of-business groups 
(clothing and furnishings, dry goods, and petroleum and its products) , expenses were approx- 
imately the same, regardless of the extension of non-extension of credit, while in eight 
cases expenses were somewhat lower for those operating on a credit basis. 

The data on credit sales, shown in Table 4 of the United States Summary and in Table 
VIII of this chapter, reveal several important points. Among them should be mentioned the 
fact that the performance of the credit function involved additional expense over those op- 
erating on a non-credit basis. This was true of 14 of the 25 kind-of-business groups in 
the case of wholesale merchant establishments. However, the added expense incident to cred- 
it extension, even in these 14 kinds of business was relatively small, due no doubt to the 
additional business secured as a result of the credit function. For many years credit has 
been recognized as a potent business force and as a sales promotional device. It is more 
than mere coincidence that in 10 of the 14 kinds of business, wholesale merchant establish- 
ments selling on credit operated on a larger scale than those selling for cash. It is also 
more than mere coincidence that in all of the eight kinds of business in which wholesale 
merchants reporting credit sales had lower operating expenses, the average size of the 
business unit was larger than obtained for non-credit places of business. The same was 
true of the three kinds of business in vvhich operating expenses jvere approximately the same 
for credit and non-credit establishments. From this evidence it may be inferred, that 
while credit operation adds to the costs of doing business the additional expense is relatively 
small and is, in many cases, more than offset by the economies accruing from larger business 
volume attracted through the credit privilege. 

OPERATING EXPENSES IN RELATION TO TYPE OF CUSTOMERS. — Another factor in the variation 
of operating expenses lies in the type of outlets served, which in turn determines the vari- 
ety of services required and the average size of individual purchases. It is probable that 
concerns selling principally to industrial users or to other vvholesale organizations, and 
hence in larger quantities, would show a lower cost of doing business, as compared tiiih 
wholesale establishments of the same type and in the same line of business, whose principal 
sales are to retailers, and still lower than those who also cater to home consumers. It may 
be that an exhaustive statistical study of the data presented in Table 5 showing operating 
expenses for establishments reporting a distribution of sales by outlets, fiill shed some 
some light on the subject. 

SIZE OF THE BUSINESS UNIT AND ITS EFFECT UPON OPERATING EXPENSES. —One of the impor- 
tant contributions to the theory of cost variation lies in the analysis of operating expen- 
ses of two homogeneous types of wholesaling, namely, wholesale merchants and manufacturers' 
sales branches with stocks. Data for each of these wholesale types are presented in Table 
7 of the United States Summary by kind of business and by size of the business unit. For 
all wholesale merchants together, the average operating cost during 1933 was 15.5 percent 
of net sales. Small scale establishments operated by wholesale merchants, with annual 
sales under $10,000, reported operating costs of 35.5 percent, while those with annual sales 
of $10,000 to $50,000 showed a cost of 25.7 percent of net sales. As the average size of 
the business establishment increased the total expense ratio decreased until it reached a 
low of 10.1 percent of sales for establishments with annual business of $10,000,000 and 
over. This evidence that operating expenses declined as the size of the business increased

is not uniform for all kinds of business. As a general rule operating costs decreased as 
the business of the establishments increased from the lowest two brackets to those estab- 
lishments which had net sales of from $50,000 to $100,000 during the year. The few excep- 
tions to this statement are found in kinds of business where the number of establishments 
•.vas too small to have any special significance. As the establishments reached beyond the 
$100,000 annual sales mark, the tendency is still for operating expenses to decline, but 
exceptions become numerous. 

In Table IX, an attempt has been made to show what happened to operating expenses as 
the size of the establishment increased, separately for wholesale merchants and for manu- 
facturers' sales branches with stocks. In the case of wholesale merchants, it is interest- 
ing to note that in all 25 kind-of-business groups, operating expenses were lower for es- 
tablishments with average annual sales of $10,000 to $50,000, as compared to those in the 
lower sales bracket (under $10,000). As the size of the establishment grew, expenses did 
not always decrease, so that in the case of establishments with annual sales of $300,000 to 
$500,000 only 19 kinds of business showed lower costs over establishments in the next small- 
er size group while in 6 kinds of business the expenses were actually higher. A similar 
situation was found in the next higher size group. This would seem to suggest that in some 
kinds of business, tha optimum size of the business unit may be found in the middle-sized 
groups, while other kinds of wholesale business may be more subject to decreasing costs. 
It is also evident that the very small units were the most expensive. 

For manufacturers' sales branches with stocks, the optimum size v/ould seem to be 
reached in the majority of kinds of business at even a lower level than for wholesale mer- 
chant establishments. Thus, 12 of the 23 kind-of-business groups with establishments in 
the $200,000 to $300,000 size group either had higher costs than those with sales of $100,000 
to $200,000 or the costs were the same. However, as the size of the establishment grew 
beyond the $1,000,000 volume, the majority of the kinds of business showed lower expenses. 
From these data it may be inferred that as far as sales branches (with stocks) are concern- 
ed, the very small establishments were the most expensive, and that for some kinds of busi- 
ness the optimum size is reached at a relatively low volume while for other kinds of busi- 
ness large units are the Eost profitable until the $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 size group is 
reached when many of the establishments begin to have higher costs than those of the pre- 
ceding size group. 

PAY ROLL AS A PART OF OPERATING EXPENSES. — Pay roll, exclusive of the compensation of 
proprietors and firm msmbers, was 5.3 percent of the net sales reported by all wholesale 
establishments for 1933. It accounted for 46.2 percent of total reported expenses. Pay 
/;11 varied considerably with the different functional types of wholesale organizations. 
For wholesalers proper it was 47.6 percent of their expenses. For manufacturers' sales 
branches, it represented 45.2 percent of total expenses. The larger proportion of expenses 
in pay roll on the part of manufpcturers ' sales branches, as compared v/ith wholesalers, may 
be explained in part by the fact that all executives for sales branches have been included 
among paid employees, whereas in the case of v/holesalers proper a number of establishments 
were operated by proprietors and firm members whose compensation was not included in the 
reported pay roll. It is also interesting to note the difference in pay roll as between 
those branches that carried stocks ana those which did not. For the first type of manufac- 
turers' sales branch, pay roll was 6.6 percent of sales and 44.1 percent of operating ex- 
penses. Manufacturers' sales branches without stocks had a pay roll of but 3.7 percent of 
net sales, although it constituted only a little more than one-half of the expenses (50.2 
percent). In the case of bulk tank stations, pay roll comprised 41.0 percent of operating 
expenses; for chain store v/arehouses it was 43.8 percent; for assemblers and country buy- 
ers, 44.7 percent; and for agents and brokers, 49.0 percent.

Inesmuch as operating expenses varied with the different kinds of business, the same 
may be expected of pay roll, which is the most important item of operating expenses in the 
wholesale business. In no kind-of-business group was pay roll lesr than 34.4 percent of 
total expenses; in 3 kinds of business it was less than 40.0 percent; in 16 kind-of-busi- 
ness groups it was from 40.0 to 50.0 percent of total expenses; and in 6, pay roll exceeded 
50.0 percent of the costs of doing business.

CHANGES IN OPERATING EXPENSES SINCE 1929. — For all wholesale trade combined, operating 
expenses were higher in 1933 than in 1929, rising from 8.9 percent of net sales to 11.5 
percent and thus registering an increase of 29.2 percent. Expenses were higher for each 
type group except for agents and brokers, in which case they remained at 3.2 percent during 
both years. In the case of wholesalers proper operating expenses rose from 11.7 percent in 
1929 to 15.0 percent in 1933. For manufacturers' sales branches they rose frcm 9.8 percent 
tc 12.5 percent; for bulk tank stations, from 14.3 to 19.7 percent; for chain store ware- 
houses, from 4.3 to 4.5 percent; and for assemblers and country buyers costs irore than 
doubled, rising from 4.5 to 9.8 percent. 

While complete explanations can not be given of the possible causes for the higher 
costs of doing business during 1933, it would appear that they were due in part to two 
principal factors. In the first place, the Icwer dollar volume of business during li'SS 
presented a smaller base over which to spread operating expenses. In every wholesale 
business enterprise there are certain irreducible fixed charges. Such charges become 



9749 



-78- 

burdensome as the dollar volume of business declines. Even the so-called variable expenses 
frequently can not be reduced to the same degree as the decline in business volume; hence 
the percentage of expenses to sales tends to rise when business slumps even though in ab- 
solute amounts they are actually reduced. 

A second factor in the rise of operating expenses is to be found in the larger volume 
of physical goods wh-'ch had to be handled during 1933 per dollar of sales. Inasmuch as 
prevailing prices were considerably lower than in 1929 the decrease in tonnage handled dur- 
ing 1933 was not commensurate #ith the decline in dollar volume. This point may be illus- 
trated by the merchandise stocks on hand at the end of 1933 in comparison to the inventor- 
ies during the earlier year. While wholesale trade volume was 53.4 percent lower in 1933 
than in 1929, stocks on hand were but 41.6 percent less. Stated otherwise, at the end of 
1929 stocks of merchandise maintained by wholesale establishments were 7.6 percent of the 
sales during the year. At the end of 1933, however, stocks were 9.4 percent of the year's 
business. When it is remembered that the stocks are figured at cost or replacement values, 
sales at selling prices, and that the mark-up (due to higher operating expenses) *as pro- 
portionally greater in 1933, it «ould seem that the actual inventories carried during the 
latter year were considerably more substantial than the ratio between 9.4 and 7.6 would 
seem to indicate.
