CENSUS OF BUSINESS: 1935

This is one of a series of final volumes on Wholesale Distribution, 
a part of the Census of Business, 1935. This volume, which presents 
data on number of establishments, net sales, proprietors, employees 
and total pay roll for cities and counties, is in three sections. 
Section One consists of Table 12A which presents the data for cities 
of more than 50,000 population, first by 6 types of operation and then 
for each type group by kinds of business. In Section Two (Table 12B) 
the data are presented by 29 kinds of business for cities of 20,000 to 
50,000 population. Section Three (Table 13) presents the data in summary 
for each State, each county, each city of more than 5,000 population and 
remainder of each county. Cities are classified by size on the basis of 
the 1930 population. 

The statistics were collected in 1936 by a field canvass of whole- 
sale establishments in every State, city and county in the United States, 
by the Bureau of the Census, with funds provided by the Works Progress 
Administration. They cover the operations of wholesalers during the 
year 1935. 

This volume corresponds in part to Tables 1 and 2 (Wholesale 
Volumes II to VII) and Table 9 (Wholesale Volume I) of the 1933 Census 
of American Business. Similar information is found in Tables 1, 2, 3, 
4, and Text Table V of Wholesale Volume II of the Census of Distribution, 
1929. 

Wholesale trade reports are prepared under the supervision of John Guernsey, Distribution 
Economist for the Census Bureau, by John Albright, assisted by Dr. Albert Haring, Edwin P. Slabaugh 
and John J. Lennon.

WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION: 1935 



VOLUME III 



CITIES AND COUNTIES 



This volume, which is one of a series on Wholesale Distribution for 
1935, presents data for cities and counties supplementing the information 
contained in Volume II, States and 25 Selected Cities. Together the two 
volumes show data on number of establishments, net sales, employment and 
pay roll for each State, each city and each county in the United States. 
The information is shown by types of operation and kinds of business insofar 
as possible without disclosing individual operations. 

The material in this volume is divided into three parts. Section One 
consists of Table 12A which presents the data for cities of more than 50,000 
population, first by 6 types of operation and then for each type by kinds of 
business. 

In Section Two (Table 12B) the data are analyzed by 29 kinds of business 
for cities of 20,000 to 50,000 population. Section Three (Table 13) presents 
the data in summary for each State, each county, each city of more than 5,000 
population and for the remainder of each county. 

CONCENTRATION OF WHOLESALE TRADE IN CITIES 1/ 

There is an unusually high concentration of wholesale trade in a relative- 
ly few urban centers, as is clearly shown by the accompanying table and by 
Chart I. Slightly more than one-half (51.3%) of all wholesale business in 
1935 was transacted by establishments located in 13 cities, each having a 
population 2/ of more than 500,000. When the 93 cities with more than 100,000 
population are considered together, it is found that they account for three- 
fourths (75.2%) of all wholesale trade, but less than one-half (47.9%) of 
the establishments. These cities account for only 29.6 percent of the population. 

Cities of 50,000 to 100,000 population show about the same percentage of 
establishments (5.2) and wholesale sales (4.9) as they do of population (5.3). 
Cities with less than 20,000 population and rural areas contribute well over 
one-half (58.0%) of the population, but only 40.2 percent of the establishments 
and 14.5 percent of wholesale trade. 



1/ In the Wholesale Census, data are tabulated according to the location of the establishment from which the 
business is conducted. The sales of a Mew York house, for example, having no branches, but selling over 
500 mile radius, are all included in the figures for that city. In the case of a multi-unit organization, a 
separate report was secured for each establishment and the data tabulated accordingly. 

2/ Population figures for all cities are based on the 1930 Population Census. 



XII 



Although wholesale trade is concentrated in the larger cities, the correla- 
tion between total sales and population is not perfect. New York City and 
Chicago rank first and second in both wholesale trade and population, but Boston, 
which is third as a wholesale center, is ninth in population. San Francisco, 
which is 11th in population, ranks 5th in wholesale trade. On the other hand, a 
number of cities rank lower in wholesale sales than in population. 



A summary of these factors by city-size groups follows:

Minor Shifts Between City-Size Groups 

Cities of more than 500,000 population accounted for 51 percent 
of total wholesale sales in 1935 as compared with 52 percent in 1933. 
The percentage for cities of 100,000 to 500,000 increased from 22 to 
24 while the proportion accounted for by cities with less than 100,000 
population and rural areas dropped one point, from 26 percent to 25 
percent. These ratios indicate that the 13 largest cities contribute 
slightly more than one-half of the total trade of the country while the 
other half is divided about equally between cities of 100,000 to 500,000 
population and smaller cities and rural areas. They also indicate very 
little change as between city-size groups in the period between 1933 and 
1935.

Size_of_CitY_Inf luences_T^E§ 

An analysis of wholesale trade by city-size groups and types of operation 
clearly indicates that certain types of operators are found primarily in the 
larger cities, while others operate chiefly in the smaller cities and rural 
areas. Sixty percent of manufacturers' sales offices, 55 percent of agents 
and brokers, 41 percent of full-service and limited-function wholesalers and 
38 percent of manufacturers' sales branches are found in the 13 largest cities. 
On the other hand 91 percent of the bulk tank stations and 97 percent of 
the assemblers are found in cities of less than 50,000 population and rural 
areas. 

A greater concentration is found in net sales than in the number of es- 
tablishments. Seventy-three percent of the business of manufacturers' sales 
offices; 61 percent for agents and brokers; 59 percent for manufacturers' sales 
branches; and 50 percent for full-service and limited-function wholesalers 
are found in cities of more than 500,000 population. 

Sixty percent of the business of bulk tank stations and 72 percent of the 
business of assemblers are found in cities of less than 50,000 population and 
rural areas.

groups expressed as a percent of the total by types of operation follows:

DESCRIPTION OF TERMS 



WHOLESALE_ESTABLISHMENTS . — Wholesale establishments, as the term 
is used here, are places of business engaged primarily in selling, or 
acting as agents in purchasing or selling, goods on a wholesale basis. 
In addition to the conventional types of wholesalers, the number in- 
cludes producer-controlled selling branches and offices, agents and 
brokers, bulk tank stations and assemblers of farm products with estab- 
lished places of business. 

Selling on a wholesale basis is selling primarily to retailers, 
institutions, industrial users and other wholesale organizations, for 
resale or further processing or business use, rather than for personal 
or household consumption. 

For census purposes, wholesale establishments do not include peddlers 
or others selling at wholesale without recognizable places of business; 
nor establishments engaged in wholesaling as a secondary activity; nor 
central administrative offices of wholesale concerns when reported as 
separate establishments. Wholesaler-retailers are included if more than 
half of their business is at wholesale. 

NET_SALES. — The term net sales is used in the Census to include 
total receipts from the sale of merchandise or services, or from other 
sources derived in the normal operation of the business. Sales taxes 
are included, but not 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 incidental or non-existent, 
inasmuch as such purchases may be made for parent organizations or 
for clients. Brokers, too, may represent buyers rather than sellers. 
Consequently, the term net sales includes the purchases made by country 
buyers of farm products and by other buying agents, as well as the 
activities of agents and brokers operating on a commission basis, 
irrespective of whether they represented clients who are selling or 
buying. However, no transaction has been counted more than once; that 
is, either the purchasing phase was considered or the selling phase. 

In the case of agents and brokers operating on a commission basis, 
it was sometimes necessary to compute net sales on the basis of average 
commission rates or fees charged. These rates or fees were either re- 
ported by the agents and brokers concerned, or were obtained through a 
computation of such rates and commissions reported by other agents and 
brokers operating in a similar manner in the same geographic division 
of the United States. This method was necessitated by the fact that 
many agents and brokers maintain records only of commissions received 
and do not have actual figures covering their operations in behalf of 
clients for whom they buy or sell goods. 



XV 



PROPRI ETO RS. — The number of proprietors includes owners or partners 
of unincorporated businesses devoting the major portion of their time 
to the operation of the business. Although they are actively engaged in 
the business, their number is not included in the count of employees, nor 
is theii- compensation included in pay roll. Executives of corporations 
are classified as employees, not as proprietor-owners. 

EMPL OYEES . — This item includes the number of full-time and part-time 
paid employees of wholesale establishments, including salaried corporation 
officers and executives. The average is arrived at by totalling the 
number reported monthly (for the pay period ending nearest the 15th of 
each month) and dividing the sum by 12. Manufacturing employees of whole- 
sale establishments who are included in the Census of Manufactures are 
omitted from these figures. 

TOTAL_PAY .ROLL. — Pay roll is the total compensation (salaries, wages, 
bonuses, and commissions) paid to employees during the year. It includes 
no compensation for proprietors and firm members of unincorporated 
businesses. 



TYPES OF OPERATION 

In presenting the data for cities of more than 50,000 population, 
wholesale establishments have been divided, according to type of estab- 
lishment or the nature of the functions performed, into six groups as 
described below. Establishments engaged in more than one type of 
operation are classified according to their ma jor activity in 1935. 

1- Full-Service and Lim ite d-Fun cti on Wholesalers. — The first of the 
six functional type groups consists of service and limited-function whole- 
salers including exporters, importers and industrial distributors — estab- 
lishments engaged in buying and selling goods on their own account and 
largely independent in ownership. Establishments in this classification 
usually warehouse the goods which they distribute, and sell primarily 
to retailers, although some handle goods which are sold chiefly to in- 
dustrial users. 

The leading type of establishment in this group is the conventional 
wholesale merchant, who accounts for 88 percent of the establishments and 
82 percent of net sales. The term covers all full-function wholesalers 
operating primarily in the domestic market. They buy and sell merchandise 
on their own account; carry stocks in their places of business; assemble in 
large lots and redistribute, usually through salesmen, in smaller 
quantities; extend credit to customers; and render advice to the trade. 
Although they sell primarily to retailers, substantial quantities of 
merchandise are sold by them to industrial and commercial users, such 
as restaurants, hotels, institutions, public utilities, manufacturers 
and to other wholesalers. 

For census purposes, the terms wholesale merch ant and Jobber are 
used interchangeably. 



XVI 



2. Manufacturersl_Sales_Branches_iwith_stocksl. — This classifi- 
cation consists of wholesale outlets owned and operated by manufacturers 
apart from their plants primarily for the purposes of carrying stocks, 
selling and delivering their own products. Sales of manufacturers' 
sales branches include bookings (sales for direct delivery from plant) 
as well as sales from stocks at the branches. Subsidiary sales cor- 
porations of manufacturers have been classified as full-service and 
limited-function wholesalers rather than manufacturers' sales branches. 

3. Manuf actu rers' Sales Offi.ces_(without_stQnkgJI_. — The third type 
of operation consists of establishments maintained by manufacturers 
apart from their plants for the purpose of selling their products. 
Sales offices are distinguished from sales branches by the fact that 
they do not include facilities for the physical storage, handling and 
delivery of merchandise, 

4- Bulk Tank Stations. — For census purposes bulk tank stations are 
wholesale establishments engaged primarily in storing and distributing 
gasoline, oil and other petroleum products. The classification includes 
bulk stations servicing retail filling stations owned by the same 
organization, as well as stations selling to independent retailers or 
industrial users. It embraces stations independently owned and operated, 
chain-operated stations, and commission stations owned by chains but 
operated by managers with a proprietary interest. 

The operators of commission bulk tank stations are paid in the form 
of commissions, which include indeterminate amounts for overhead and de- 
livery costs as well as pay roll of employees hired by them and compen- 
sation for their personal services. Inasmuch as it was impracticable to 
obtain separate employment and pay roll figures for these stations, such 
data are omitted from the tables. In Table 12A the number of such stations, 
if any, is shown for each city in a footnote. In Table 12B the number 
appears in parentheses in the stub after the name of the city and also 
after the kind of business. In Table 13 the number for each county or city 
likewise appears in parentheses in the stub. 

5. Agent s_and_Brokers_lfunctional_middlemenl. — The fifth type 
group includes middlemen who negotiate purchases and/or sales in 
domestic or foreign trade, but who do not, as a rule, take title to 
the goods. A chief additional function is to furnish marketing 
information. They commonly receive their remuneration in the form 

of commissions or fees. This classification includes auction companies, 
merchandise brokers, commission merchants, export agents, import agents, 
manufacturers' agents, selling agents, purchasing agents, and resident 
buyers. 

6. Assemblers. — The sixth group includes establishments engaged 
primarily in the purchase or sale of farm products at local producing 



XVII 



points or in cities convenient to producing regions. The emphasis is on 
the buying phase, since it is the principal function of these organiza- 
tions to assemble and concentrate farm products which are produced 
on a relatively small scale into quantities large enough for economical 
shipment and handling. Most assemblers operate in what may be termed 
the local growers' markets. The classification includes firms and 
individuals who do business on their own account, as well as those who 
operate on a salary or commission basis for others. Under this heading 
are included cream stations, cooperative marketing associations, grain 
elevators, packers and shippers of fruits and vegetables and sea foods, 
as well as other country buyers of farm products. 

For a more detailed discussion of the types of operation, see Volumes I and II. 

KINDS OF BUSINESS 

In addition to being classified according to functional type, each 
establishment is also classified by kind of business (drugs, groceries, hard- 
ware, etc.) according to the principal lines of merchandise dealt in or the 
usual trade designation. All wholesale establishments are divided into 29 
major kind-of-business groups. These 29 groups are comprised of 142 de- 
tailed classifications according to the degree of merchandise specializa- 
tion. A complete list of kinds of business together with an explanation 
of the method of classification is given in Volumes I and II. 

To make them of most value, data for cities of more than 50,000 
population are analyzed first by types of operation and then (for each 
of the six type-groups) by 29 kinds of business. Presented in this 
manner they enable each wholesaler to compare his accomplishments with 
those of other wholesale establishments operating in the same line of 
trade and in the same area in which his business is located. This 
method of presentation permits significant comparisons with respect to 
sales per establishment, sales per employee, and pay roll in percent of 
sales. 

For cities of 20,000 to 50,000 population, the data are presented 
by 29 kinds of business, all types combined. This procedure is dictated 
by the necessity of preventing disclosure of individual operations and 
at the same time showing as great detail as possible. 

Discl osu re of Individual Operations. — To protect the confidential na- 
ture of the statistics, no information is shown which would disclose the 
operations of an individual establishment or organization. In the case of 
cities of more than 50,000 population, the data which must be withheld are 
combined under a miscellaneous caption, usually termed "all other", with 
a footnote showing the number of establishments for each classification 
contained therein. For cities of 20,000 to 50,000 population, only those 
classifications with three or more establishments of separate ownership 
are shown separately. 



XVIII 



Com2a:iaMlit^_wath_Previous_Censuses. — In presenting the data on 
wholesale trade, every effort has teen made to keep the classifications 
comparable with those of the 1933 and 1929 censuses. In making compari- 
sons, however, it should be remembered that the scope of the present 
census is more restricted than its predecessors. Chain store warehouses 
and purchasing offices of retail chains are excluded from the current 
Wholesale Census, but are described and correlated in a special report 
of the Business Census entitled "Retail Chains". Central or administra- 
tive offices of multi-unit wholesalers, formerly included in the Wholesale 
Census for their selling activity, are now treated as auxiliary units 
and included in a special tabulation in Wholesale Volume I only. Also, a 
few Factors in the textile trade, chiefly in New York City, which were 
included in the 1933 Wholesale Census because of their marketing functions, 
now appear in the Census of Financial Institutions. These changes in the 
Wholesale Census have been made on the advice of business leaders and econo- 
mists; comparability of the 1935 data with that for previous years has been 
preserved by appropriate adjustments in the 1933 figures in summary tables. 

Comparisons are qualified by the fact that the current Census is 
affected slightly by incomplete coverage due to the absence of legislation 
which during regular census years makes reporting mandatory. In addition 
to a few scattered concerns elsewhere who failed to cooperate, the Bureau 
was unable to obtain complete coverage in certain areas of Colorado, 
Nebraska and Missouri. 

In making comparisons consideration should be given to establishments 
whose activities fall within different census fields, such as manufacturing 
and jobbing, wholesaling and retailing, or the growing and packing and shipping 
of fruits and vegetables. Each such establishment must be included in its 
entirety in whatever classification most nearly describes its major activity. 
With a minor change in activities some of these establishments may shift 
into or out of the Wholesale Census, and in the smaller cities their 
presence or absence may have an appreciable effect upon the total. Compari- 
sons by kinds of business are influenced somewhat by dual-line establishments 
which may take either of two classifications (hardware and plumbing and 
heating, groceries and tobacco products, dry goods and clothing, or drugs 
and liquors) but which are classified according to the line that predominates 
currently. A small change in sales emphasis may cause the entire business 
of such an establishment to shift from one classification to another. 
However, their sales are comparatively small so the unavoidable shifts 
have no appreciable effect on group totals even though they sometimes 
distort comparisons in small cities or rural areas.
