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 oper- 
ations of wholesale establishments during the year 1953. 

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 Distribution, assist- 
ed by John Albright, Administrative Assistant.

WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION: 1933 



■ In this report are presented statistics on wholesale trade for 
the year 1933. Data are shown both by type of establishment and by kind 
of business so as to set forth the essential characteristics of the whole- 
sale business of the area covered by this volume. For a description of 
the Wholesale Census, for definitions, explanations of terms, classifi- 
cations, and United States Summary tabl:s, and for an analysis of whole- 
sale trade, see Volume I. 

For census purposes a wholesale establishment is a place of 
business, the primary function of which is to sell or distribute goods on 
a wholesale basis. It may be in the form of a store, a wholesale ware- 
house, a sales or brokerage office, or part of an office as when the 
office is shared with other similar organizations. Sales at wholesale 
may be made to retailers, to institutions, to industrial consumers or to 
other wholesale organizations. No merchandising establishment has been 
classified as "wholesale" unless fifty percent or more of its sales were 
made in a wholesale manner or on a wholesale basis. 

The Wholesale Census was taken on the basis of establishments 
rather than companies or firms in order to facilitate the canvass and to 
make it possible to present data by geographic areas. A separate report 
was required for each establishment regardless of whether or not it was 
ov/ned or operated as a part of a large business organization. Wholesale 
peddlers and others who sell goods at wholesale but who maintain no 
regularly established places of business were not included in this census. 

WHOLESALE TRADE, BY TYPE OF ORGANIZATION . —In presenting the 
data for the States and for the United States as a whole, v/holesale 
establishments have been divided into six groups, some of which have been 
further subdivided, according to the type of establishment or the nature 
of the functions performed. 

The first of the six functional type groups for which data are 
shovm is called "wholesalers proper" and consists of more or less regular 
wholesalers in domestic and foreign trade who take title to the goods 
they buy and sell and are largely independent in ownership. The second 
division comprises "manufacturers' sales branches," consisting of whole- 
sale outlets owned by manufacturers lar^oly for the disposal of their own 



8181 



goods. The third type, "bulk tank stations," consists of establishments 
performing wholesale functions in the distribution of gasoline, oil and 
other petroleum products. While primarily distributing their products to 
retail stations, they also sell goods at wholesale to tank wagons and to 
industrial users. The fourth type, "chain store warehouses," are distri- 
bution stations maintained by retail chains to supply their stores v/ith 
merchandise. They carry on wholesale operations in addition to ware- 
housing in that they break bulk, deliver and bill merchandise, and in 
some cases exercise supervision over a chain of stores. Wholesale 
commissaries, prepared- food depots which serve their own restaurants, 
and distribution centers for bakery chains are also included in this 
group. 

The fifth division is called "assemblers and country buyers." 
Their principal operation is the purchase and assembly of farm products 
such as grain, cotton, tobacco and other forms of farm produce. This 
group also includes cooperative marketing associations; packers and 
shippers; cream stations; and independent, line, and cooperative elevators 
as differentiated from terminal elevators. The sixth and last group is 
called "agents and brokers," and includes auction companies, brokers, 
commission merchants, export and import agents, manufacturers' agents, 
selling agents, resident buyers, etc. 

For each of the six type groups of wholesale establishments and 
for some of the subdivisions thereof data are shown in Table 1 on the 
number of establishments, both for 1933 and 1929; net sales, for 1933 and 
1929; total expenses, expressed both in amounts and as a percent of net 
sales; the average number of full-time employees, pay roll for all 
employees and for part-time employees; and stocks on hand at the end of 
the year. This information is presented for each of the States and for 
each of the cities of 100,000 population and over. 

7M0LESALE TRADE, 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. Following this basis of classification, 
wholesale establishments were divided into twenty-five major kind-of- 
business groups, which were further subdivided into 166 detailed kind of 
business classifications according to the degree of merchandise specializ- 
ation. A complete explanation of this method of classification is given 
in Volume I. 

Important as it is to have information for each kind of busi- 
ness or line of trade in detail, it is even more significant to have such 
data presented separately for each type of wholesaling organization. In 
that manner the accomplishments of a wholesaler in a given line of busi- 
ness may be compared with the accomplisl'.r.ents of all wholesalers operating 
therein, while the achievements of a manufacturer' s sale s branch can be 

8181 



compared with those of manufacturers' sales branches in the same line of 
trade. Such comparisons are of special interest to individual business 
enterprises and to the student of marketing. 

Basic statistics on wholesale trade for types of establishments 
by kind of business are shown in two tables. Table 2A presents for each 
State and for a limited number of selected cities, the number of whole- 
sale establishments by kind of business, in detail, for each of nineteen 
functional types of wholesale organizations. This table may be regarded 
as a supplement to Table 2B which shows for each of the States and for 
cities of 5,000 population and over, the number of establishments; net 
sales; total expenses, expressed in amounts and as a percent of net sales; 
the average number of full-time employees; pay roll, total and part-time; 
and stocks on hand. This information iz shown for as many kinds of busi- 
ness, under each type, as possible without disclosing data for individual 
establishments. More complete information on the number of establishments 
by type and kind of business in detail is to be found in table 2A, 
described above. 

SOURCES OF RECEIPTS. — In addition to dealing in merchandise, 
many wholesale establishments derive a certain amount of income from the 
sale of services and from other sources. Table 3 has been devised in 
order to measure quantitatively the volume of business secured through 
the sale of goods and that obtained from other sources. This table is 
presented for States only, by kind-oi -business groups, and shov/s the 
number of establishments in a given group; total net sales, a term used 
throughout as interchangeable with receipts; total expenses, expressed 
in amounts and as a percent of sales; and receipts. The last item is 
broken dovm according to sources into sales of merchandise; receipts 
from parking, storage, cleaning, etc.; receipts from space rental; and 
receipts from other sources. 

CREDIT BUSINESS OF WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS .—The extent to 
which wholesale establishments engaged in selling on a credit basis is 
shown in Table 4. This information is presented for States only, by 
kind-of-business groups, separately for wholesalers proper and for all 
other types combined. It indicates the degree to which wholesale estab- 
lishments perform the functions of financing 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 report on this item, data 
related to credit sales are presented in Table 4 only for those establish- 
ments for which the credit information was available. It shows the 
number of establishments reporting credit and the percent which that 
number constituted of the total for the kind of business under consider- 
ation. The same procedure is followed in connection with net sales. 

8181 



In the following columns credit sales are given in amounts and as a per- 
cent of sales of establishments reporting credit sales and 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 establish- 
ments selling on credit with the costs incurred by those establishments 
which presumably do not operate on a credit basis, if it can be assumed 
that all or most of the establishments not reporting credit sales sold 
for cash. 

DISTRIBUTION OF SALES. — A common conception is that wholesalers 
sell only to retailers and that wholesalers are the only type of organiz- 
ation operating in the wholesale field. That this is far from the truth 
is indicated by the figures shown in Table 5. The statistics therein are 
presented for States only, by 25 kinds of business, separately for whole- 
salers proper and for all other types combined. It shows that wholesale 
establishments 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 degree to 
which they are used in the different kinds of business. 

Here, too, not all of the establishments reported the distri- 
bution 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, net sales, and total expenses of all establishments, 
and then presents statistics for those establishments that reported a 
distribution of sales by outlets. For these establishments it shows the 
number and the percent which such number constitutes of the total for 
the group under consideration. 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 the following groups: sales to retailers (for resale); sales to home 
consumers (at retail); sales to industrial users, including institutions; 
and sales to other wholesale organizations. 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. 



8181 



EMPLOYMENT IN WHOLESALE TRADE.— The significance 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 employ- 
ees, 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 
employees as of December 30, 1933; the percent of women shown separately 
relates to the same date. The table also presents the number of full- 
time and part-time employees as of 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 each of the States and for 
cities of 500,000 population and over. 

Employment is the only item in the wholesale trade statistics 
which is presented on a monthly basis. It affords indirect indication 
of the extent of seasonal change in wholesale activity, quite marked in 
certain lines of trade. A comparison of monthly figures for 1933 with 
quarterly data for 1929 suggests the extent of non-seasonal improvement 
in employment conditions in the course of 1933. Part-time employment in 
wholesale trade, information on which was gathered for the first time for 
1933, appears to be much less important in this field than in retail 
trade; it attains significant proportions in only a few kinds of business. 

WHOLESALE TRADE BY SIZE OF BUSINESS UNIT. — Table 7 presents the 
number of establishments, the annual average number of full-time employ- 
ees, and the operating expense ratio of wholesale merchants and of manu- 
facturers' sales branches with stocks*, by size-of-establishment groups, 
based upon net sales. Establishments have been classified into 7 size 
groups, as follows: 

Group number Net sales 

I Under $10,000 

II $10,000 to $49,999 

III $50,000 to $99,999 

IV $100,000 to $199,999 

V $200,000 to $499,999 

VI $500,000 to $999,999 

VII $1,000,000 and over 



■*For definition of wholesale merchants and manufacturers' sales branches 
with stocks, see Volume I. 

8181 



This information is given by States for each of the 25 kinds 
of business. The table permits a comparison by lines of trade of whole- 
sale merchants (including importers) with manufacturers' sales branches 
with stocks, two types of wholesale operations which, for the most part, 
compete in the same market, warehouse '"oods and make deliveries from 
stocks. Comparison is also possible of small and large-sized establish- 
ments in a given trade as to operating costs. It shows to what extent 
each size group furnishes employment in wholesale trade. It further 
indicates the differences existing between trade groups and betv/een whole- 
sale merchants and manufacturers' sales branches with stocks as to average 
size of establishment, as to distribution of establishments by size, and 
as to operating costs. 

A FEW SUGGESTED USES OF THE DATA IN THESE REPORTS.— The statis- 
tics presented in these reports on wholesale trade should prove of 
considerable value to individual business men, public authorities and 
independent students. The breakdown by type of operation, line of trade, 
and geographic areas should enable the wholesaler to compare his accom- 
plishments with those of others operating on a similar basis in the same 
market area. For the manufacturer planning a sales campaign the fi ures 
should make possible an allocation of sales quotas and territories to 
salesmen. The formulation of policies by public authorities should be 
facilitated by information on the amount and nature of business done in 
each locality, the employment it furnishes, and the income it distributes. 
The quantitative description of the marketing wholesale structure and c f 
the changes in it in the course of the memorable years, 1930 - 1933, found 
in the Census volume, should serve as basic material to the analytical 
student of Ame.ican economic life.
