THE EVIDENCE STUDY SERIES 

The EVIDENCE STUDIES were originally planned as a means of gathering evidence 
tearing upon various legal issues which arose under the National Industrial Re- 
covery Act. 

These studies have value quite aside from the use for which they were originally 
intended. Accordingly, they are now made available for confidential use within the 
Division of Review, and for inclusion in Code Histories. 

The full list of the Evidence Studies is as follows: 



1. Automobile Manufacturing Ind. 23. 

2. Boot and Shoe Mfg. Ind. 24. 

3. Bottled Soft Drink Ind. 25. 

4. Builders' Supplies Ind. 26.

also made available for confidential use within the Division of Review and for in- 
clusion in Code Histories, as follows:

AUTOMOTIVE PARTS AND EQUIPMENT 
MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY 



General Notes 



Code Definition 



The Automobile Parts and Equipment Manufacturing Industry 
as defined by the Code includes: "The business of the production 
and/or manufacture of automotive parts and/or equipment, consisting 
of automotive original equipment, automotive replacement parts, 
automotive accessories, automotive service tools, automotive chemical 
specialities, automotive electrical products, internal-combustion 
engines excepting aircraft engines, such other allied products as 
are natural affiliates, including industrial, marine, and aircraft 
parts, units, and/or equipment, which are or have parts kindred to 
this automotive parts and/or equipment Industry, excepting, however, 
the production and/or manufacture of such articles when produced 
or manufactured by a manufacturer for use exclusively in his own 
finished product, and excepting the business of manufacturing and/or 
producing rubber tires and tubes and other rubber products included 
in the Code or Codes of Pair Competition for the Rubber Industry, 
and excepting the products included in the Code of Pair Competition 
for the Electric Storage and Wet primary Battery Industry. " 

The criteria by which industry formulated Code definitions 
were somewhat different from those used by the Bureau of the Census 
and other government agencies in making their classifications and 
for this reason figures from government sources are not applicable 
to the Automotive parts and Equipment Manufacturing Industry as 
defined by the Code. 



The sources of the data in the accompanying tables are 
the Code Authority for the Automotive Parts and Equipment Manu- 
facturing Industry, the Automotive Parts and Equipment Manufacturing 
Association, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 

Code Authority Data. . - In making a study of the Automotive 
Parts and Equipment Manufacturing Industry, in cooperation with 
the Division of Research and Planning, of the National Recovery 
Administration, the Code Authority segregated the companies 
manufacturing original equipment from those manufacturing replace- 
ment parts. 

Employment, payrolls, man-hours, hourly and weekly wages 
from 1929 through November 1934 are shown for five independent 
original equipment companies whose employment represented 11 per 
cent of total employment in the industry in 1934, a.nd about 95 



9124 



- p 



per cent of whose output is sold to automobile manufacturers. 

Similar data covering a shorter period of time are shown 
for 47 original equipment companies who employ approximately 45 
per cent of all the employees in the industry. Data for the 12 
replacement parts companies cover only one per cent of all the 
employees in the industry. It is not known what proportion these 
employees are of the employees in all replacement parts companies. 

Bureau of Labor Statistics . - Data from the Bureau of 
Labor Statistics are from a special unpublished tabulation made in 
cooperation with the Rational R e covery Administration for establish- 
ments under the Code. 

Employment, payrolls and average weekly wages are based 
upon a sample covering an average of 72 establishments and 33,316 
employees in 1933, an average of 180 establishments and 63,393 
employees in 1934, and an average of 154 establishments and 
56,742 employees for the eight months of 1935. The indexes of 
employment and payroll are derived by chaining together month-to- 
month relative changes in identical establishments. 

Average hours and average hourly wage are based upon a 
sample covering an average of 57 establishments and 20,426 em- 
ployees in 1933, an average of 133 establishments and 48,228 
employees in 1934, and an average of 149 establishments and 
56,299 employees for the eight months in 1935. 

Man-hours were derived by multiplying the index of employ- 
ment by the average hours worked per week and reducing the results 
as relatives to the 1933 average.
