This is one of a series of final volumes on Wholesale Distrihution, 
a part of the Census of Business, 1935. This volume consists of an in- 
troduction and Sections One and Two. In the introduction, a brief 
analysis of the data is given together with a description of terms and 
method of classification. Section One (Table 5) shows to what extent 
full-service and limited-function wholesalers and manufacturers' sales 
branches engage in selling on a credit basis. In Section Two (Table 7) 
the business of wholesale establishments is analyzed by classes of custo- 
mers. The table shows to what extent wholesalers sell to retailers, to 
household consumers, to industrial users, to other wholesalers and to 
buyers in foreign countries. 

This volume corresponds in part to tables 4 and 5 (Wholesale Volumes 
I to VII) of the 1933 Census of American Business. 

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. 

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 VII 



CREDIT SALES 



AND 



SALES BY CLASSES OF CUSTOMERS 



This volume, which presents data on credit business and an analysis of 
wholesale sales by classes of customers, consists of an introduction and 
Sections One and Two. In the introduction, a brief analysis of the data is 
given together with an explanation of terms and method of classification. 
Section One consists of Table 6 which shows credit sales for full-service 
and limited-function wholesalers and manufacturers' sales branches by kinds 
of business. Section Two (Table 7) analyzes the business of wholesale estab- 
lishments showing sales to retailers, to household consumers, to industrial 
users, to other wholesalers, and export sales to buyers in foreign countries. 

CREDIT SALES 

Credit S ale s Predominate 

Of the sales of full-service and limited-function wholesalers and 
manufacturers' sales branches doing a credit business, over 80 percent are 
on a credit basis. Of the 88,931 full-service and limited-function whole- 
sale establishments in the United States in 1935, 62,086 reported credit 
sales. These 62,086 establishments granted credit on $11,123,208,000, or 
81.5 percent, of their net sales of $13,650,448,000. Of the 11,634 manu- 
facturers' sales branches, 9,397 reported credit sales of $5,143,453,000 
or 82.5 percent of their net sales of $6,232,227,000. 

A summary of the credit information for the two types of operation 
follows:

Vol. VII - Page 8 



It is significant that the proportion of the credit business for the two 
types is approximately the same, 81.5 for full-service and limited-function 
wholesalers as compared with 82.5 for manufacturers' sales 'branches. However, 
a slightly larger percentage of the latter (80.8 percent) reported that they 
did some credit business, as compared with 69.8 percent of the former type. 
Whether the failure to report credit sales indicates a strictly cash business, 
or represents an omission, is difficult to say. It is known, however, that 
many wholesale establishments sell only for cash. 

Credit b^ Kinds of Business 

When the two types are analyzed by kinds of business, a close relation- 
ship is noted between the credit ratios. Full-service and limited-function 
wholesalers and manufacturers' sales branches both show over 90 percent credit 
sales for clothing and furnishings, dry goods, furniture and house furnishings, 
lumber and construction materials, metals and metal work and paper and its 
products. Both types show over 85 percent credit for 14 identical trades, 
while for automotive products and for farm products-consumer goods, both show 
low credit ratios. 

Significant differences between the credit ratios of the two types are noted 
for the following trades: beer, wines and liquors; coal and coke; farm supplies; 
and tobacco and its products. These differences are due to the fact that the 
two types are either serving different classes of customers or are emphasizing 
different lines of merchandise which fall within the same major kind-of- 
business classification. Sales branches of manufacturers of tobacco and its 
products and beer, wines and liquors sell primarily to distributors or jobbers 
rather than to retailers. Their credit ratios are therefore higher than for 
full-service and limited-function wholesalers. In' the case of the farm supplies 
group, fertilizer, which is sold primarily for cash, constitutes the bulk of 
the business of manufacturers' sales branches, while feed and seeds are the 
important lines of merchandise of full-service and limited-function whole- 
salers. Similarly, coke is the important item of manufacturers' sales 
branches in the coal and coke trade, but is relatively unimportant for 
merchant wholesalers. 

Considerable variation is found in the credit ratios for the various kinds 
of business of full-service and limited-function wholesalers. Dry goods 
(specialty lines) shows 97.2 percent credit as contrasted with 57.8 for 
automotive products. Of t'ne 29 kind-of-business groups, 9 show credit of 90 
percent or more, 11 from 80 to 90 percent, 4 from 70 to 80 percent, while 5 
report less than 70 percent. A more careful analysis of the classifications 
showing a low credit ratio discloses some interesting facts (see Table 6, 
Page 23). Automobiles and other motor vehicles are sold primarily for cash 
(36.5 percent credit), while 72.2 percent of equipment is sold on credit. 
As indicated above, beer is more frequently sold for cash than are wines and 
liquors. Credit business dominates in the sale of wool, mohair and raw silk 
but occupies a less important position in the sale of other farm products. 
In the grocery specialities trade, soft drinks show a low credit ratio. 



Vol. Vll - Page 9 



Comparison with 1933 

The credit ratios for the two types show little change between 1933 and 
1935. For full-service and limited-function wholesalers, credit sales of those 
doing a credit business increased from 80.4 to 81.5, while for manufacturers' 
sales branches, the ratio dropped from 90.4 to 82.5. A significant factor in 
the latter change is the increased sales importance of automobiles, primarily 
a cash business. 

It is interesting to note that for full-service and limited-function whole- 
salers, 12 of the 21 trades for which direct comparisons can be made show less 
than a two-point change. For manufacturers' sales branches, 8 trades show less 
than a two-point change. 

A comparison of credit sales ratios, 1935 and 1933, is given below for 
full-service and limited-function wholesalers and manufacturers' sales branches 
by kinds of business.

SALES BY CLASSES OF CUSTOMERS 

Duplication in Wholesale Sales 

Sales of merchandise to retailers for resale constitute less than one-half 
of the total business of wholesale establishments. An analysis of wholesale 
sales shows that 45.4 percent are to retailers for resale, 1.5 percent at retail 
to household consumers, 29.8 percent to industrial users, 20.2 percent to other 
wholesalers and 3.1 percent for export to buyers in foreign countries. The 
20.2 percent sales to other wholesale establishments represents duplication 
in the total figures, in that it shows to what extent goods are sold two or 
more times at wholesale. 

These figures are based upon information furnished by 141,295 establishments 
able to supply the data direct from their books or on the basis of carefully 
prepared estimates. These 141,296 establishments represented 79.9 percent of 
the total number and accounted for 81.5 percent of the total sales of wholesale 
establishments in the United States in 1935.

Sales to Reta ilers 

Obviously, not all types of wholesale establishments sell the same 
proportion of goods to a given class of customers. Bulk tank stations 
reported 73.3 percent of their business to retailers. The remainder 
of their sales are about equally divided among sales to household con- 
sumers, to industrial users and to other wholesalers, with 0.4 percent 
exports. Full-service and limited-function wholesalers deal primarily 
with retailers, 59.2 percent of their business being with retail accounts. 
It is significant to note that more than half (52.6 percent) of the busi- 
ness of manufacturers' sales branches, is with retailers. Only a small 
portion of the business of agents and brokers (21.0 percent), manufactur- 
ers' sales offices (17.8 percent) and assemblers (12.7 percent) is with 
this class of customers. 

Sales to House hold Consumers 

The household consumer normally buys goods from the retail store for 
personal or family consumption. While it is not the general practice of 
wholesale houses to sell at retail, and no establishment is included in 
the Wholesale Census whose major operations are sales to home consumers, 
many wholesale organizations do sell a limited quantity of goods to 
ultimate consumers. In addition the Wholesale Census includes a few whole- 
sale retailers when the major portion of their business is at wholesale. 
The smallest portion of sales made to household consumers is shown for 
agents and brokers (0.1 percent), followed by manufacturers' sales offices 
(0.2 percent). On the other hand, 8 percent of the business of bulk tank 
stations and 4.1 percent of assemblers are with household consumers. Sales 
in this category are frequently a matter of accommodation. 

Sales to Industrial Users 

As indicated by the kind-of-business classification, a large number 
of wholesale establishments deal in industrial goods sold primarily to 
factories, oil wells, mines and quarries, hotels, public utilities, rail- 
roads, institutions, and to various commercial houses. The goods so pur- 
chased are either converted into more finished products or are used in the 
conduct of the business rather than re-sold in the same form. Such goods 
consequently consist principally of raw materials, semi-manufactured prod- 
ucts, parts, machinery, equipment and supplies. The largest proportion 
of sales to industrial users was reported by manufacturers' sales offices 
(59.3 percent), followed by agents and brokers (34.9 percent) and assem- 
blers (29.5 percent). 

Sales to industrial users vary in importance between the major kinds of 
business and also differ among the several types of operation. In the case 
of full-service and limited-function wholesalers, sales to industrial users 



Vol. VII - Page 14 



amount to 74.0 percent of total sales of waste material dealers, 72.2 per- 
cent of the machinery trade and 61.5 percent of metals. Similar figures for 
manufacturers' sales "branches are: 82.8 percent for metals, 75.0 percent for 
jewelry and optical goods, 73.8 percent for electrical goods, and 70.0 per- 
cent for the dry goods specialties group. The sales of manufacturers' sales 
offices to industrial users are 94.7 percent of total sales for machinery, 
89.5 percent for metals, and 85.3 percent for dealers in chemicals and 
paints, while for agents and brokers the proportion sold to industrial users 
is 75.4 percent for machinery, and 67.0 for waste materials. 

Sales to Other Wholesalers 

Of the total sales analyzed by classes of customers, 20.2 percent rep- 
resents the extent to which wholesale establishments sell to one another, 
often referred to as the factor of duplication in wholesale sales. Leading 
types in this respect are assemblers, 50 percent, and agents and brokers, 
39.4 percent. Little duplication is found for full-service and limited- 
function wholesalers, 10.2 percent, and for bulk tank station, 8.4 percent. 
For agents and brokers, the largest percent of duplication is found in the 
groceries and foods (specialty lines) trade, 67.7 percent, followed by petro- 
leum and its products, 56.3 percent, and hardware, 55.7 percent. The least is 
found in the general merchandise, the machinery, equipment and supplies, and 
the waste materials trades, all of which show less than 6 percent duplication 
of sales. For assemblers, each of the trades reported sales to other whole- 
salers as follows: farm products-raw materials, 43.0 percent; farm products- 
consumer goods, 64.3 percent; farm supplies, 37.9 percent; groceries and foods 
(specialty lines), 50.9 percent; and all other products, 9.2 percent. 

Export Sales to Buyers in Foreign Countries 

Under this inquiry each wholesale establishment was requested to re- 
port the volume of goods sold for export to buyers who do not maintain estab- 
lished places of business in the United States. Such sales constituted 3.1 
percent of the total, with agents and brokers (including export agents) show- 
ing the highest ratio 4.6 percent. Full-service and limited-function whole- 
salers (including exporters) are second with 3.8 percent. Manufacturers' 
sales branches and bulk tank stations each show less than 1 percent export 
sales. 

An analysis of sales to the five classes of customers described above 
is given for types of operation and kinds of business in Section Two of this 
volume .

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 includes producer- 
controlled selling branches and offices, agents and brokers, bulk tank 
stations and assemblers of farm products with established places of business. 

Selling on a wholesale basis is selling primarily to retailers, institu- 
tions, industrial users and other wholesale organizations, for resale or further 
processing or business use, rather than for personal or household consumption. 
Sales to retailers for re-sale constitute slightly less than one-half of total 
wholesale distribution. 

For census purposes, the number of wholesalers does 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 estab- 
lishments. Wholesaler-retailers are included if more than half of their 
business is at wholesale. 

NET SA LES. --The term net sales is used in the census to include total 
receipts from the sale of merchandise or services, and from other sources 
in the normal operation of the business. Sales taxes are included. The 
value of goods returned by, or allowances made to, customers has been de- 
ducted. 

Some wholesale establishments are engaged primarily in buying or assem- 
bling 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 fiurchases 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 commis- 
sion rates or fees charged. These rates or fees either were reported 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 
the value of goods bought or sold for their principals. 



Vol. VII - Page 16 



CREDIT SALES ITABLE_61.--Each establishment was requested to report 
under this item in the schedule, the part of its total business which was 
done on a credit basis; i. e., sales made on weekly terras, on a 10-day basis, 
30-day basis, end-of-month terms, sales on the installment plan, or any other 
basis that did not involve the immediate payment of cash on receipt of goods. 
C. 0. D. sales are classed for purposes of the census as cash sales. The term 
"credit sales" covers, except as noted, all sales made on any basis other than 
strictly cash. 

SALES ANALYZED BY CLASSES OF CUSTOMERS ITABLE_71.--Most establishments 
analyzed total net sales by classes of customers. In many cases, however, 
particularly for petroleum and its products, the amount under this heading 
represents net sales with certain deductions, such as: sales, turn-over, 
gasoline and other commodity taxes and, in some instances, receipts from 
services. 

SALES TO RETAILERS. --Every reporting establishment was requested to 
report the actual amount of goods sold to retailers for resale. For the 
purpose of this inquiry the term retailer is used as described in the 
census of Retail Distribution.!/ The term "sales to retailers" presumably 
excludes purchases made by retailers of such items as machinery, equipment 
or supplies which are bought for use in the conduct of the business, rather 
than for re-sale. 

SALES TO HOUSEHOLD CONSUMERS. --The amount reported under this classifi- 
cation represents sales of wholesale establishments at retail. 1/ 

SALES TO INDUSTRIAL USERS. --These are sales made by wholesale estab- 
lishments to manufacturers, oil well companies, mine operators, railroads, 
public utilities, institutions, etc. They consist largely of goods bought 
for business use, such as machinery, equipment, supplies and raw materials, 
rather than for resale in the same form. 

SALES TO WHOLESALE ORGANIZATIONS. --Under this inquiry each wholesale 
establishment was asked to report sales to other wholesale establishments 
as defined above. The data under this item show the amount of duplication 
in wholesale trade, i. e., the extent to which goods are sold by one whole- 
sale establishment to another involving two or more wholesaling transactions 
relating to identical products. 

EXPORT SALES TO BUYERS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES. --As the term indicates, 
the amount represents sales to buyers who do not maintain established places 
of business in the United States. It is the domestic value of goods pur- 
chased from wholesale establishments for export.

Vol. VII - Page 17 



TYPES OF OPERATION 



In presenting the data, wholesale establishments have been divided, 
according to type of establishment 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 major activity in 
1935. 

i- Full-Service and Limited-Function 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 stock the goods which they distribute, and sell primarily to re- 
tailers, although some handle goods which are sold chiefly to industrial 
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 most 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 and manufacturers) and to other wholesalers. 

For census purposes no distinction is made between wholesale merchant 
and jobb er . 

2. M3;nufacturer§_;_ Sales Branches (with stocks) . --This classification 
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 corporations of manufacturers 
have been classified as full-service and limited-function wholesalers rather 
than manufacturers' sales branches. 

3. Manuf actu rers' S ale s Ofiices (without stocks) .--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. 



Vol. VII - Page 18 



4- Sulk Tank Stations. --Bulk tank stations are wholesale estab- 
lishments engaged primarily in storing and distributing gasoline, oil and 
other petroleum products. The classification includes bulk stations ser- 
vicing retail filling stations owned by the same organization, as well 
stations selling to independent retailers or industrial users. It em- 
braces stations independently owned and operated, chain-operated stations, 
and commission stations owned by chains but operated by managers with a 
proprietary interest. 

5- Agents and Brokers Ifunctional middlemen) . --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 com.missions or fees. This classi- 
fication includes auction companies, merchandise brokers, commission 
merchants, export agents, import agents, manufacturers' agents, selling 
agents, purchasing agents, and resident buyers. 

5. Assemblers. --The sixth group includes establishments engaged 
primarily in the purchase or sale of farm products at local producing points 
or in cities convenient to producing regions. The emphasis is on the buying 
phase, since it is the principal function of these organizations to assemble 
and concentrate farm products, which are produced on a relatively small scale, 
into quantities large enough for economical shipment and commercial handling. 
Most assemblers operate in what m.ay 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 market- 
ing associations, grain elevators, packers and shippers of fruits and vege- 
tables and sea foods, as well as other country buyers of farm products. 



CLASSIFICATION BY KINDS OF BUSINESS 



Based on experience with previous censuses, all wholesale establishments 
have been divided into 29 kind-of-business groups. These groups comprise 
142 minor or detailed classifications. In arranging the classifications, 
three factors were considered; 

1. The way in which certain goods are distributed, namely, 
the Channels of Distribution. 

2. The Source of Supp3y of the commodity or commodities 
under consideration. 

3. The Utilization of the commodity by those who purchase 
it from the reporting firm. 



Vol. VII - Page 19 



To illustrate, soap powder used for household consumption is included 
among groceries, since the great bulk of such merchandise is handled through 
grocery channels. This classification obviously follows the first basis 
mentioned, namely, channels of distribution. Hides and skins, on the other 
hand, are classified under "farm products-raw materials" on the basis of 
their source of su^Sii- Similarly, fruits and vegetables are classified 
under "farm products-consumer goods". Shoes are classified under "clothing 
and furnishings" because of the way in which they are utilized. 

In some cases it was necessary to combine two or three of the bases 
mentioned. For example, stoves and ranges are classified as "plumbing and 
heating equipment and supplies", partly because they are distributed through 
plumbing channels but largely because they are used for heating purposes, 
so that both the channels of distribution and utilization of the products 
are followed in this case. 

To assist in determining the proper classification of establishments, 
each respondent was requested to give the usual name or designation by 
which the business was known to the trade or public. In addition, he was 
asked to name the principal lines of merchandise sold or handled, in the 
order of their importance, based upon net sales for 1935. The information 
supplied in reply to these inquiries, together with the analysis of sales by 
commodities, served to determine the proper kind-of-business classification 
for the establishment. In general, the major kind-of-business classification 
was arrived at through the trade designation, while the lines of merchandise 
or commodities handled determined the more detailed classification. Estab- 
lishments engaged in more than one kind of business were classified accord- 
ing to the line that predominated during the year 1935. 

Although kind of business is predicated in part upon the commodities 
handled, sales of any given kind of business are not to be confused with the 
sales of the commodities themselves, as most establishments handle more than 
a single commodity or line of merchandise. For example, wholesale grocers 
frequently sell drug items, paper goods and tobacco products while hardware 
wholesalers sell automotive parts, wiring supplies, sporting goods or radios. 
(An analysis of sales by commodities is presented in Volume VIII.) 

EXPLANATION OF TABLES. — An explanation of the tables is found on the 
blue divider sheets as follows: 

Table 6. — "Credit Sales", Page 21 

Table 7. — "Distribution of Sales by Classes of Customers", Page 43 

DISCLOSURE OF INDIVIDUAL OPERATIONS. — The confidential nature of the 
material requires the v/ithholding of some information to avoid disclosing 
individual operations. In general, figures are withheld when they repre- 
sent fewer than three establishments or ownerships. In some cases it has 
been necessary also to withhold data for a larger number of establishments 
to protect deleted information from disclosure.

VOLUME VII 



SECTION ONE 



TABLE 6.- -CREDIT SALES 



The extent to which full-service and limited-function wholesalers 
and manufacturers' sales branches engage in selling on a credit basis 
is shown in Table 6. The information is presented in summary for the 
United States for the two type-groups by 142 kinds of business. For 
the 9 geographic divisions and 13 largest cities, the data are shown 
by 29 kind-of-business groups, for full-service and limited-function 
wholesalers only. The statistics contained in this table indicate the 
degree to which these types of wholesale establishments perform the 
functions of financing business by extending credit to retailers, to 
industrial users, 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 on credit 
sales are presented in Table 6 only for the establishments for which 
credit information is available. In the first two columns of the table 
are shown the number and net sales for all establishments, including also 
those selling entirely for cash and others which failed to report 
definitely whether they sold for cash or credit. The remaining columns 
relate only to establishments reporting credit sales for 1935. For 
these establishments, the number, net sales (cash and credit) and the 
amount of credit sales are given together with the percent of credit 
business. 

Data for the different areas appear as follows:

WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION: 1935 
VOLUME VII 



SECTION TWO 



TABLE 7.-DISTRIBUTI0N OF SALES BY CLASSES OF CUSTOMERS 



The extent to which wholesalers sell to retailers, to household con- 
sumers, to industrial users, to other wholesalers, and for export to buyers 
in foreign countries is shown in the following pages. The statistics are 
presented in summary for the United States, for the 9 geographic divisions 
and for the 13 cities having more than 500,000 population in 1930. For 
the United States as a whole, the data are shown for 6 functional type- 
groups by 142 kinds of business, while for the geographic divisions and 
the 13 largest cities, they are presented for the 6 types by 29 kind-of- 
business groups. Naturally, there is considerable variation in the extent 
to which the different wholesale establishments, type and kind, sell to the 
various classes of customers. 

Not all the establishments reported the distribution of their sales, 
partly because of inadequate records. The table shows, for each type and 
kind, the number of establishments and net sales of all establishments; 
and then presents an analysis of sales for those reporting a distribution 
by classes of customers. For the latter group, it shows the total sales 
analyzed, and a division between sales in the domestic market and export 
sales to buyers in foreign countries. The domestic business is divided 
into sales to retailers for resale, to household consumers, to industrial 
users and to other wholesalers. From these data it is possible, among 
other things, to determine the amount of duplication in the total whole- 
sale sales figures due to the fact that some establishments sell to other 
wholesale organizations. 

Data for the different areas appear as follows:

This is the final volume of a series on Wholesale Distribution, 
a part of the Census of Business, 1935. In this volume sales of whole- 
sale establishments are analyzed by commodities or lines of merchandise. 
Tables are included for the United States as a whole, for New York City, 
for Chicago and for San Francisco and Los Angeles combined. The commodity 
analysis is presented for 29 kind-of-business groups for the following 
major types of operation: full-service and limited-function wholesalers, 
manufacturers' sales branches (with stocks), manufacturers' sales offices 
(without stocks), bulk tank stations, agents and brokers; and assemblers. 
Data are shown for 100 major commodity classifications many of which are 
subdivided into detailed commodity items. 

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. 



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

COMMODITY SALES 



On the schedule form used in enumerating wholesale establishments, 100 
commodity groups or lines of merchandise, including receipts from service, were 
listed, 38 of which were subdivided into more detailed commodity items (see 
schedule form in Appendix). Each establishment was requested to analyze its 
sales for the year 1935 and to report, from book figures or on the basis of 
carefully prepared estimates, the value of each commodity sold. Additional 
space was provided for commodities not on the standard list with the request 
that the respondent specify the kind and amount. 

The information derived from this inquiry is presented in Table 8. Be- 
cause of the magnitude of the task and the time required, tabulations were 
prepared only for the United States as a whole, for the cities of New York 
and Chicago, separately, and a combined tabulation for San Francisco and 
Los Angeles. The four cities represent different geographic divisions and 
account for 35 percent of all wholesale trade for the country in 1935. 

COMMODITY COVERAGE. --Not all of the wholesale schedules gave information 
on sales by commodities. Had all reports been broken down on this basis, the 
sales analyzed by commodities and total net sales would have been the same 
and the commodity coverage would have been 100 percent. Since the records of 
some establishments were such that no breakdown could be secured, the total 
commodity ^ales in any given trade are usually less than total net sales for 
the same classification. The term, "commodity coverage" is used in the Census 
to express this fact. Commodity coverage is the ratio which sales made by 
establishments reporting commodity figures bear to the total sales of all 
establishments in the same classification. For the country as a whole. 
161,171 of the 176,756 establishments analyzed their sales. The business 
of the 161,171 establishments amounted to $38,517,229,000 as compared with the 
total of $42,802,913,000. Hence, commodity coverage for the United States 
is 89.9 percent ($38,517,229,000 divided by $42,802,913,000). The coverage 
varies with each kind of business and each type of operation ranging from a 
low of 50.6 percent for full-line grocery merchants to 100 percent for a 
number of classifications. 

HOW COMMODITY DATA ARE PRESENTED. --Commodity data are presented for the 
29 kind-of-business or trade groups* of the 6 m.ajor types of operation. 



* Although "kind of business" is predicated in part upon the commodities handled, it must not be confused 
with the commodities thomselves, as most establishments handle more than a single commodity or line of 
merchandise. For example, wholesale grocers frequently sell drug items, paper goods and tobacco products 
while hardware wholesalers sell automotive parts, wiring supplies, sporting goods or radios. The method 
of c'a<3ification by kinds of business is explained on page 15. 



^ 



Vol. VIII - Page 8 

In the preparation of Table 8, all establishments reporting commodity sales 
were classified first on the basis of type of operation or functions per- 
formed according to the following groups: 

I Full-service and limited-function wholesalers 

II Manufacturers' sales branches (with stocks) 

III Manufacturers' sales offices (without stocks) 

IV Bulk tank stations (petroleum) 

V Agents and brokers 

VI Assemblers of farm products 

The establishments falling within each of these type classifications 
were further sorted into kind-of -business or trade groups as follows: * 

- ■ 1. Amusement and sporting goods 

I:'''" 2. Automotive 

■ 3. Beer, wines and liquors 

4. Chemicals and paints 

5. Clothing and furnishings 

6. Coal and coke 

7. Drugs (full line) 

8. Drugs and drug sundries (specialty lines) 

9. Dry goods (full line)

For each kind-of-business group under each type of operation, the 
sales are analyzed to show which commodities, as listed on page 25, are 
sold and in what amounts. 

TABLE 8 EXPLAINED. --As stated above, commodity sales are presented by 
types of operation and kinds of business for the United States as a whole, 
for the cities of New York and Chicago and a combined tabulation for 
San Francisco and Los Angeles Table 8 for these areas includes only those

in the Appendix, page 80.

establishments reporting sales by commodities. The type of operation is 
clearly indicated at the beginning of each sheet, or where breaks occur, 
in large type centered over the columns. The kind-of -business or trade 
groups are centered and underscored in the stub. 

The various commodities found in each kind of business are listed in 
the stub in the order in which they appear in the standard list on page 25. 
Under full-service and limited-function wholesalers (see Page 27) the first 
kind of business is the amusement and sporting goods trade. In this trade 
group. 950 establishments with sales of $107,419,000 reported sales by commod- 
ities. The commodity coverage for the trade is 91.8 percent*. In general, 
this means that the sale of any specified commodity thereunder is 91.8 per- 
cent of what it would have been had all establishments been analyzed. 

Of the 950 establishments classified as amusement and sporting goods, 
22 reported sales of commodity number 27--clothing and furnishings, men's 
and boys'. The total sales of these 22 establishments amounted to $4,536,000, 
of which $294,000 or 6.5 percent (see first percentage column) was in the 
particular commodity "clothing and furnishings, men's and boys'". In the 
second percentage column is shown the ratio which the $294,000 bears to the 
total sales ($107,419,000) of the amusement and sporting goods houses report- 
ing commodity information. 

Stated differently, the commodity "clothing and furnishings, men's and 
boys'" accounted for 6.5 percent of the sales of amusement and sporting 
goods merchants handling this item, but inasmuch as not all establishments 
sold men's and boys' clothing and furnishings, it accounted for only 0.3 
percent of the total for the trade group. In addition to clothing and fur- 
nishings, 16 major commodity lines are found in substantial amounts in the 
amusement and sporting goods trade**. For the country as a whole each of 
the following commodities represent more than ten percent of the total 
for the trade group: sporting goods, 18.8 percent; toys and games, 19.6 
percent: cameras and supplies. 10.6 percent; and motion picture film rent- 
als. 26.6 percent. 

In the automotive trade, 5,416 establishments with sales of $743,303,000 
reported commodity analyses. The commodity coverage for this trade group 
is 95.2 percent. The commodity or line entitled "automobiles and other 
motor vehicles" accounted for 45.2 percent of the total, but when the automo- 
tive establishments not selling automobiles and motor vehicles are excluded, 
this same line accounted for 91.2 percent of sales. From this analysis it is 
evident that distributors of automobiles and other motor vehicles deal very 
little in other commodities. 

Some returns show a breakdov.'n of "automobiles and other motor vehicles" 
into passenger automobiles, commercial vehicles, tractors, and motorcycles. 
Of the establishments which provided a more detailed breakdown, 284 sold 

Commodity coverage can be verified by comparing the $107,419,000 as shown above with the total 
sales for the trade amounting to .$117,045,000 as shown in Table 1, page 17. 

** Commodities representing less than one-tenth ot one percent of the total sales of a given Irade are not 
shown separately but are included in all other commodities . 



Vol. VIII - Page 10 



passenger automobiles representing 88.4 percent of their total sales; 115 
sold commercial vehicles which accounted for 15.5 percent of their sales; 
and 39 sold tractors accounting for 56.2 percent of their sales. Only 4 
sold motorcycles. Of the $335,764,000 of automobiles and motor vehicles, 
$61,342,000 are not further analyzed. The table does not show the number 
of establishments involved. 

LIMITATIONS. --In using the commodity data, it should be remembered that 
not all establishments were able to provide the desired information and for 
most classifications the sale of a given commodity is understated. The commo- 
dity coverage ratio can be used, however* in projecting totals. 

Many respondents reported commodity sales on the basis of lines of mer- 
chandise or departments. For some of these, the sale of a given department 
was reported as the sale of a commodity. Paints sold in the hardware depart- 
ment, for example, were sometimes included with the commodity "hardware", 
although the schedule made provision for reporting paints separately. Some 
grocery merchants included miscellaneous house furnishings with "all other 
commodities". Likewise, the term, "notions" was variously used by wholesale 
establishments. In short, the sale of a commodity in a trade where it is 
not normally found is, as a rule, understated, while for trades where it 
constitutes a substantial portion of the total, it may be slightly overstated. 

The commodities listed for a given trade in Table 8 are not to be con- 
sidered as the only ones sold in establishments so classified. In addition 
to the fact that some commodities do not appear as the information was fre- 
quently furnished for departments, data are not shown sepai-ately for commodi- 
ties which represented less than one-tenth of one percent of the total for a 
trade group. In spite of these limitations, however, it is believed that the 
tables furnish very reliable data on the more common commodities. 

USE OF TABLE 8. --The analysis of sales by commodities is designed pri- 
marily to satisfy the wants of two major groups. One of these consists of 
wholesale merchants and other wholesalers who are interested in knowing what 
their competitors sell and in what amounts. The second group comprises pro- 
ducers and manufacturers who have goods to market through wholesale channels. 
In addition to these two groups, commodity information has considerable 
significance for executives of trade associations, economists and consultants 
in market research, advertising and research agencies and similar groups. 

The chief objective in presenting commodity statistics is to permit a 
clear understanding of what commodities are sold in a given line of business. 
The wholesaler can thus ascertain what lines of commodities are carried 
by other wholesalers classified as himself and what proportion these commo- 
dities constitute of the total sales of the houses handling them. They also 
show him how important each commodity is for the trade as a whole, thus 
providing valuable information on lines of merchandise which might well be 
added or eliminated. 



Vol. VIII - Page n 



Manufacturers may glean from these statistics the total wholesale volume 
of the particular commodities which they are producing. This information 
affords a basis for comparing their distribution with the total for the country, 
thereby giving a concrete idea of the relative share of the market which they 
may reasonably hope to secure. Also, the commodity information makes it 
possible to work out a more scientific method of distribution, since it pro- 
vides facts on commodity outlets with respect both to the types of operation 
and trade groups which handle the various commodities. It is thus possible 
for the manufacturer of electrical goods, for example, to determine what 
establishments sell electrical commodities and how important the commodity 
is to their business. 

USE ILLUSTRATED. --The use of Table 8 may be illustrated by a study of 
tobacco wholesalers. Tobacco and its products (except leaf) constitutes one 
of the 29 major kind-of -business or trade groups and "cigars, cigarettes and 
tobacco"--commodity number 89--is considered as a separate commodity classi- 
fication. The table, therefore, provides a basis for determining what tobacco 
distributors sell in addition to cigars, cigarettes and other tobacco products. 
Referring to Table 8 for New York City, it is found (see Page 49) 
that 161 full-service and limited-function wholesalers--chief ly jobbers--of 
tobacco and its products (except leaf)* reported sales amounting to $94,312,000. 
The commodity coverage of this classification was 96.9 percent; hence, the 
amount reported for each of the commodities handled by tobacco jobbers may be 
assumed to be only 3.1 percent short of what it would have been had all tobacco 
distributors analyzed their sales. Ninety-five of the 161 distributors sold 
confectionery. Sales of these 95 distributors amounted to $68,900,000 of which 
$5,260,000 or 7.6 percent was confectionery. The confectionery business, however, 
represented only 5.6 percent of the total sales of the 161 establishments. 

As was to be expected, "tobacco products" including cigars, cigarettes, 
chewing tobacco, etc., was the major commodity sold in this trade, accounting 
for 90.5 percent of all sales. In addition to confectionery and tobacco 
products, substantial amounts of groceries, drugs and drug sundries, soaps 
and toiletries and sporting goods are handled in this trade. All other 
commodities accounted for less than one percent of the total. 

From the figures in Table 8, it may be assumed that in New York City a 
tobacco jobber handling various tobacco items may expect 71.6 percent of his 
sales to be made up of cigarettes and that 90.5 percent will consist of "cigars, 
cigarettes and other tobacco products". If he is handling confectionery, he 
may expect this line to account for 7.6 percent of his total sales. 

In addition to full-service and limited-function wholesalers of tobacco 
products, 16 manufacturers' sales branches specializing in this business are 
found in New York City (see Page 51)**. All of these branches analyzed 
their sales; hence the commodity coverage was 100 percent. Sales branches 



*lncludes only those whose primary business is the sale of cigars, cigarettes and other tobacco products. 

**lt should not be assumed from the above treatment that manufacturers' sales branches compete with tobacco jobbers 
lor the retailer's business. By referring to Page 94 of Wholesale Distribution, 1935, Volume VII, it is shown that over 
90 percent of the sale of manufacturers' branches are to full-service and limited-function wholesalers of tobacco. 



Vol. VIII - Page 12 



maintained by tobacco manufacturers sell tobacco products (98.9% of sales) 
almost to the exclusion of all other commodities. The limited number of 
manufacturers' sales offices (without stocks) and of agents and brokers 
specializing in tobacco has prevented showing their sales by commodities. 

WHO HANDLES TOBACCO PRODUCTS . --Table 8 may also be used in determining by 
what types of wholesalers and in what kinds of business or trades cigars, 
cigarettes and other tobacco products are handled. To illustrate the use of 
the table in this respect, the summary for the United States is selected. Below, 
the data are assembled for the various types of operation and kinds of business, 
showing the percentage of commodity coverage in each case together with the 
total reported sales of "cigars, cigarettes and other tobacco products".

In addition small amounts of "cigars, cigarettes and tobacco" are sold by 
other classes of establishments, but the sales in each case, constitute less than 
one-tenth of one percent of the total for the kind-of-business or trade group. 

Tabulations similar to the above can be prepared for any of the reported 
commodities. By way of 'assistance in locating information in the table, each 
major commodity is given a number (see Page 25) which remains the sanio through- 
out the study and appears in the stub to the left of the classification Under 
each trade classification, the commodities found therein are listed in numerical 
order. The omission of a number means that either the item is not found or it is 
not of sufficient importance to be shown separately.

DESCRIPTION OF TERMS 



To assist in the understanding of the data in this report, the 
following explanation of terms is given: 

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 includes producer- 
controlled selling branches and offices, agents and brokers, bulk tank 
stations and assemblers of farm products with established 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, the num.ber of wholesalers does 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. V/holesaler-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 rentals or aerived 
from other sources in the normal operation of the business. Sales taxes 
are included, but not the value of goods returned by, nor 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 m.ay be made for parent organizations or for clients. 
Brokers, too, may represent buyers rather than sellers. Consequently, the 
term net sales is used to include the purchases made by country buyers of 
farm products and bv 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 con- 
sidered 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 reported 
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 main- 
tain 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. 



Vol. VllI - Page 14 

COMMODITY COVERAGE. --Commodity coverage is the ratio which sales made by 
establishments reporting commodity figures bear to the total sales of all estab- 
lishments in the same classification. For instance, total sales of all estab- 
lishments reporting a commodity analysis amounted to $38,517,229,000 as compared 
with sti-les for all establishments of 142,002,913,000; hence, commodity coverage 
is 89.9 percent. 

TYPES OF OPERATION 



In presenting the data, wholesale establishments have been divided, 
according to the type of establishment or the nature of the function per- 
formed, into 6 groups as described below. Establishments engaged in more 
than one type of operation are classified according to their major activity 
in 1935. 

1- Full-Service and Limited-Function Wholesalers . --The first of six 
functional type groups consists of full-service and limited-function whole- 
salers including exporters, importers and industrial distributors-establish- 
ments 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 industrial 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 most full-function wholesalers 
operating primarily in the domestic market. Wholesale merchants 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 no distinction is made between the terms wholesale 
mer chant and jobber. 

2. Manufacturers' gales Branches i.With Stocks!. --This classification 
consists of wholesale outlets owned and operated by manufacturers apart 
from their plants, primarily for the purposes of carrying stocks and 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 corporations of manufactur- 
ers have been classified as full-service and limited-function wholesalers 
rather than manufacturers' sales branches. 

3. Manufacturers' Sales Offices iWithout StocksJ.. --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. 



Vlll - Page 15 



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. 

5- Agents and Brokers IEyil£iioili;i Middi®5§Ili- "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. AsseSJblers. --The sixth group includes establishments engaged 
primarily in the purchase or sale of farm products at local producing 
points or in cities convenient to producing regions. The emphasis 
is on the buying phase, since it is the principal function of these 
organizations 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, and other country 
buyers of farm products. 

KINDS OF BUSINESS 

In addition to classification by type of operation, each establishment 
is classified by kind of business (drugs, groceries, hardware, etc.) based 
upon the principal lines of merchandise handled or trade designation. 
Guided largely by the experience of previous censuses, all wholesale establish- 
ments have been divided into 29 kind-of-business or trade groups. These groups 
comprise 142 minor or detailed classifications. (For a complete list, see 
Appendix.) In arranging the classifications, three factors were considered: 

1. The way in which certain goods are distributed, namely 
the Channel s of Distribution . 

2. The Source of Supply of the commodity or commodities 
under consideration. 

3. The Utilization of the commodity by those who purchase 
it from the reporting firm. 



Vol. Vm - Page 16 



To illustrate, soap powder used for household consumption is included 
among groceries, since the great bulk of such merchandise is handled through 
grocery channels. This classification obviously follows the first basis 
mentioned, namely, channels of distribution. Hides and skins, on the other 
hand, are classified under "farm products-raw materials" on the basis of 
their source of su^Ely- Similarly, fruits and vegetables are classified 
under "farm products-consumer goods". Shoes are classified under "clothing 
and furnishings" because of the way in which they are utilized. 

In some cases it was necessary to combine 2 or 3 of the bases mention- 
ed. For example, stoves and ranges are classified as "plumbing and heating 
equipment and supplies", partly because they are distributed through plumbing 
channels but largely because they are used for heating purposes, so that both 
the channels of distribution and utilization of the products are followed in 
this case. 

To assist in determining the proper classification of establishments, 
each respondent was requested to give the usual name or designation by which 
the business is known to the trade or public. In addition, he was asked 
to name the principal lines of merchandise sold or handled, in the order 
of their importance, based upon net sales for 1935. The information supplied 
in the reply to these inquiries together with the analysis of sales by 
commodities served to determine the proper kind-of-business classification 
for the establishment. In general, the major business classification 
was arrived at through the trade designation, while the lines of merchandise 
or commodities handled determined the more detailed classification. Estab- 
lishments engaged in more than one kind of business were classified according 
to the line that predominated during the year 1935. 

TABLE 1 

For convenience in comparing commodity information as given in Table 
8 with other data on wholesale trade. Table 1 is included for each area covered 
by Table 8. This table which is included in other volumes of the Wholesale 
Census series, presents the total number of establishments in each area together 
with their net sales, operating expenses, personnel, pay roll and stocks on hand 
at the end of the year.

CONFIDENTIAL GOVERNMENT REPORT 



Section 8 of the Act creating the Department of Commerce and Labor, approved February 14, 1903, provides that: " The 
Secretary of Commerce shall from time to time make such special investigations and reports * * * which he himself 
may deem necessary and urgent." Acting upon this authority, I have authorized and instructed the Director of the Census 
to take a Census of Business covering the calendar year 1935. We ask for the cooperation and assistance of the business 
men of the United States in this undertaking and assure them that their individual reports will be held absolutely confidential. 
Only sworn employees of the Bureau of the Census will be permitted to examine your report, and no information will be given 
to any person, whether in Government service or private life, which would disclose, exactly or approximately, any of the facts 
or figures in your report. The information will be used for statistical purposes only.
