PREFACE 

This is one of a series of seven volumes presenting final results of the 1948 Census of Business for Wholesale, 
Retail, and Service Trades. Statistics for Wliolesalo Trade are contained in tvk'o volumes — Volume IV, General 
Statistics and Commodity Line Sales Statistics; and this volume. The Census, which was conducted by personal 
canvass of business establisliments, was taken in accordance with the provisions of the act of June 19, 1948 (62 
Stat. 478; 13 U. S. C. 121-123). This act provides for a Census of Business to cover the year 1948 and every fifth year 
thereafter. Previous business censuses covered the years 1929, 1933, 1935, and 1939. 

Important to the conduct of the 1948 Census of Business was the assistance of many private and public organiza- 
tions in the planning phase of the census and the excellent cooperation of some 3,000,000 business establishments in 
supplying the information required, as well as the work of the several thousand census employees who participated 
in the field enumeration, editing, tabulation, and other census operations. 

The advice of trade associations, individual businessmen, research and marketing organizations, and Government 
agencies was invaluable in determining the feasibility of collecting various types of data and the methods for mini- 
mizing the burden of reporting, as well as in determining the types of information which would be of greatest value. 
Because of budgetary and other limitations, it was not possible to collect all of the data recommended by these groups. 
Timely publicity given to the business census by business organizations, trade papers, local newspapers, and radio 
stations aided greatly in informing businessmen of the natULre and objectives of the census and facilitated the collec- 
tion of census reports. 

The primary responsibility for the 1948 Census of Business was centered in the Business Division of the Census 
Bureau. Other divisions of the Bureau, particularly the Field Division and the Machine Tabulation Division, also 
had important functions in the census. 

The business census was taken under the supervision of William C. Truppner, Chief of the Business Division. 
Major contributions to the planning of the 1948 Census of Business were made by William A. Ruff, Assistant Chief, 
who retired January 1, 1948, and Earl D. Krickbaum, Chief of the Procedures and Processing Section until November 
1, 1948. 

The following personnel in the Business Division had important responsibilities in the census: 

Harvej' Kailin was Assistant Chief, Program Branch. Louis Greenberg was responsible for review of all text 
material and table forms, and assisted on publication problems. 

Max A. Bershad was Chief of the Statistical Methods Section. Henry Wulff, in charge of Quality Control, worked 
on field enumerating techniques, and office editing and tabulating procedures. Aaron Sabghir, in charge of Sampling 
Techniques, worked on the postenumeration survey and measures of census coverage and accuracy. 

John Albright was Chief of the Wholesale Trade Section and William P. Mclnerny was Assistant Chief. George 
L. Whalley, Max E. VanHorn, Frank R. Alvis, and Bruce B. Spratling, participated in the planning and developing 
of report forms, publication plans, and manuals; the writing of texts; and the handling of technical problems arising 
during the processing of reports and tabulations. 

M. D. Bingham was Chief of the Procedures and Processing Section, and Sol DoUeck was Assistant Chief; Rich- 
ard S. McCurdy, succeeded by R. M. Micoly in July 1949, and assisted by Jervis Braunstein, was in charge of the 
Directory Subsection, responsible for receiving report forms and the handling of special problems connected with 
multiunit firms. Leroy H. Groeper was Chief of the Wholesale Trade Processing Subsection, and was in charge of 
editing, coding, and tabulating Wholesale Trade reports. J. Stanley Werking participated in the design of forms 
and all problems of printing and preparation of material for publication. 

In the Field Division, Jack B. Robertson, assisted by Arthur Cook, directed the field work for the census of busi- 
ness. Lancelot W. Armstrong, Machine Tabulation Division, assisted by Hugh Jones, was responsible for machine 
tabulation techniques and procedures; arid Franklin L. Thatcher and Robert H. Brooks, Administrative Services 
Division, were responsible for the printing and publishing of the Census of Business.

INTRODUCTION 



Scope of the census, and area covered. — The 1948 
Census of Business covers Retail, Wholesale, and Service 
Trades. Retail and Wholesale Trades in the Business 
Census correspond mth minor exceptions to these trade 
divisions as described in the Standard Industrial Classi- 
fication Manual, issued May 1949, under the sponsor- 
ship of the Biu'eau of the Budget, Executive Office of the 
President. For a discussion of the census scope of Service 
Trade, see Introduction to volume VI: Service Trade — 
General Statistics. All previous Business Censuses cov- 
ered Retail and Wholesale Trades; Service Trades were 
first enumerated in the 1933 Census. 

The 1948 Census of Business includes business estab- 
lishments located in Continental United States and the 
Territories of Alaska and Hawaii. Data for Puerto 
Rico, obtained in a Census of Business for 1949, are 
published separately. The 1939 Business Census cov- 
ered the same areas as the 1948 Census, and, in addition, 
Puerto Rico. AH earher Business Censuses were con- 
ducted only in Continental United States. 

Period covered by the census. — The 1948 Census of 
Business is basically a report of business activity in the 
calendar year 1948. However, the relatively small pro- 
portion of establishments that maintained their records 
on a fiscal year basis and were imable to report on a cal- 
endar year basis, were permitted to use a fiscal year end- 
ing between September 30, 1948, and March 31, 1949. In 
a very few cases, reports were accepted for fiscal years 
not falling within this range. Regardless of the fiscal 
year used, all establishments were required to report 
employment and pay roll (except annual pay roll) for 
the pay periods specified on the report forms. 

Method of canvass. — The 1948 Census of Business was 
conducted primarily by means of field enumeration, al- 
though advance inquiries were made by mail to clarify 
the reporting problems of large multiimit organizations. 
For purposes of enumeration, 308 Census field offices 
were established with jurisdiction over the some 37,000 
enumeration districts into which the Nation had been 
divided. Trained enumerators were assigned areas 
consisting of one or more enumeration districts. A more 
complete description of enumeration procedures, includ- 
ing controls on and measures of the coverage of business 
estabhshments, are contained in the 1948 Census of 
Business Volume I, Retail Trade; Volume IV, Whole- 
sale Trade ; and Volume VI, Service Trade. 

Scope of Wholesale Trade. — The Standard Industrial 
Classification (SIC) Manual, Volume II, Nonmanu- 
facturing Industries, defines Wholesale Trade as includ- 
ing "estabhshments or places of business primarily 
engaged in selling merchandise to retailers; to industrial, 



commercial, institutional, or professional users; or to 
other wholesalers; or acting as agents in buying mer- 
chandise for, or selling merchandise to, such persons or 
companies." The 1948 Census of Business was con- 
ducted in accordance with this definition. 

Comparison of 1948 and 1939 Wholesale Trade scope.— 
With minor exceptions, the scope of Wholesale Trade in 
the 1948 census is the same as for 1939. Changes from 
1939 were made with respect to coffee roasting and leaf 
tobacco stemming and redrying estabhshments, which 
were excluded from the 1948 Census of Business, but 
covered in the 1947 Census of Manufactures. Motion 
picture film distributors were included with Wholesale 
Trade in 1939 but not in 1948. Data for this industry 
were collected and published in a special bulletin en- 
titled "Motion Picture Film Distributors." Adminis- 
trative offices and auxiliary units of wholesale establish- 
ments were omitted in 1939, but included in 1948. Some 
adjustments in 1939 data were made in the case of indi- 
vidual companies which were classified differently in 
1948 from 1939. Adjustments and scope changes are 
reflected in those tables which contain comparative 
statistics. 

Type-of-operation classification. — ^Wholesale Trade, 
as defined above, is much broader than the conventional 
concept of "wholesaler" selling primarily to retailers, as 
it also includes foreign trade merchants, industrial dis- 
tributors, manufacturer-owned wholesale outlets, agents, 
brokers, and assemblers of farm products. As the scope 
is so broad, the primary approach in classifying whole- 
sale establishments is on the basis of type of operation 
of the establishment. In the Standard Industrial Clas- 
sification Manual, wholesale establishments are divided 
into two major groups, one of which is further subdivided 
into four gi-oups: 

50 Merchant wholesalers. 

51 Wholesale Trade, other than merchant wholesalers. 

511 Sales branches and sales offices of manufacturing 

and mining companies. 

512 Petroleum bulk stations. 

513 Agents and brokers. 

514 Assemblers, mainly of farm products. 

These major groups are recognized in presenting 
Census of Business findings, but, in some tables, are 
broken into more detailed types with the result that 
data are shown for as many as 36 separate types of oper- 
ation. Descriptions of these 36 types are shown in 
appendix A, and comparative Census classifications used 
in the 1948, 1939, and 1929 Censuses for the major groups 
are given in appendix C of this volume. A comparison 
of classifications used in the 1948 Census and in the 

IX 



Standard Industrial Classification Manual is presented in 
appendix D. 

Establishment basis of the census.— Census of Business 
figures represent a summary of reports for individual 
"establishments" rather than for the combined activities 
of "companies." A separate report was obtained for 
each location at which business was conducted, including 
each location of multiunit organizations. For such 
organizations, a separate report also was obtained for 
each central warehouse, administrative and district 
office, and each other location (other than a manufactur- 
ing plant) which serviced, or was auxiliary to, establish- 
ments of the organization reported to the Business 
Census. Each report was tabulated in accordance with 
the physical location of the establishment. 

Kind-of- business classification. — In addition to "loca- 
tion" and "type of operation" classification, each estab- 
Hshment was assigned a kind-of-business classification. 
A total of 145 kind-of-business classifications are recog- 
nized in presenting census results for Wholesale Trade. 
The 145 detailed classifications are grouped into 53 
classifications which, in turn, are further arranged 
according to 17 major groups. A complete listing of 
kinds of business together with their descriptions is given 
in appendix B of this volume, accompanied by a com- 
parison of census classifications used in the 1948, 1939, 
and 1929 Business Censuses. In contrast to 145 Census 
classifications, SIC groups wholesale establishments 
imder 57 kinds of business. A comparison of Census 
and SIC classifications including an outline of the dif- 
ferences in these two classification systems is given in 
appendix D. 

Report forms. — Five report forms were used in can- 
vassing wholesale establishments in the 1948 Census of 
Business. Form BC-30 was used for reporting operations 
of merchant wholesalers and manufactm-ers' sales 
branches and offices primarily engaged in selling 
consumer goods such as foods, clothing, jewehy, etc.; 
Form BC-3 1 was used for enumeratiag merchant whole- 
salers and manufacturers' sales offices engaged in selling 
industrial, commercial, or professional goods such as 
electrical goods, machinery, beauty supplies, etc. ; Form 
BC-32 was a specialized questionnaire used for reportiag 
operations of petroleum bulk stations and distributing 
terminals; Form BC-33 was designed for enumerating 
agents and brokers; and Form BC-34 was used for 
reporting activities of assemblers and marketers of farm 
products. The five forms were identical with respect to 
the basic information presented in this volume on num- 
ber of establishments, sales, personnel, pay roll, and 
inventories. However, they differed materially in the 
amount and kind of detail called for on sales by commod- 
ity line, expenses, cash and credit business, trucks, etc. 
Information on these subjects, for Wholesale Trade, is 
presented in volume IV. 

In addition, a Form BC-10 was required for each 
administrative office, warehouse, or other auxiliary unit, 
primarily engaged in performing functions for the whole- 
sale establishments within their own organization. In- 



formation collected on Form BC-10 is also included in 
data presented in this volume. Reproductions of Forms 
BC-30, BC-31, BC-32, BC-33, BC-34, and BC-10 are 
shown in appendix F. 

Statistics for Wholesale Trade. — The patterns for 
presentation of data by type of operation and kind of 
business in the tables in this Volume are determined, 
basically, by the number of establishments in the areas 
to which the data showTi relate. Because of the relation- 
ship between the number of establishments and the 
number of different classifications for which data can be 
presented without violating Census laws designed to pre- 
vent disclosure of confidential information, the detail 
shown will vary from area to area. 

Information for 36 types of operation and 145 kinds 
of business are shown in table lE. This is the maximum 
, detail shown in this volume. For States and standard 
metropolitan areas (tables 101 and 102), data are shown 
for a maximum of 13 types of operation and 53 kinds of 
business. For counties with 50 or more wholesale es- 
tablishments (table 104), data are shown for a maximum 
of 17 kinds of business. Table 103 summarizes whole- 
sale trade information for all counties and, within coun- 
ties, for cities with 5,000 or more inhabitants. In this 
table, establishment and sales information is presented 
for "Wholesale merchants," and "Other operating types." 

For presentation of wholesale data, a "collapsible" 
stub was employed where the small number of estab- 
lishments in an area or kind of business resulted in in- 
ability to present statistics without disclosure. In 
such cases, all kinds of business for which data could 
not be separately shown were lumped together in an 
"n. e. c." (not elsewhere classified) group. Thus, in a 
number of areas, data are presented for such classifica- 
tions as "Merchant wholesalers, n. e. c," or "Manu- 
facturers' sales branches, n. e. c," etc. Data in differ- 
ent tables for "n.e.c." groups are usually not comparable 
since they can consist of a varying number of kinds of 
business. 

Wherever information for an area might result in dis- 
closure of figures for an individual establishment, all 
data, except "Number of establishments," were sup- 
pressed. To prevent derivation of the suppressed fig- 
ures by subtraction, it always was necessary that data 
for another kind of business also be withheld. 

Standard metropolitan areas. — In addition to States, 
counties, and cities, Census of Business statistics are 
presented for standard metropolitan areas. These are 
areas which have been defined and established coopera- 
tively by a number of interested Federal agencies under 
the direction of the Bureau of the Budget for purposes of 
compilation and presentation of a wide variety of statis- 
tical data on a uniform area basis. 

The general concept adopted in defining a standard 
metropolitan area was one of an integrated economic 
unit with a large volume of daily travel and communica- 
tion between a central city and the outlying parts of the 
area. This resulted in an area considerably more re- 
stricted, especially for the larger cities, than the " market" 



or "trading" area. Each area (except in New England) 
consists of one or more entire counties. In New Eng- 
land, metropolitan areas have been defined on a town 
rather than on a county basis. A complete statement 
of the principles adopted as a guide in applying this gen- 
eral concept to the definition of individual areas will be 
found in a document issued by the Bureau of the Budget, 
Executive Office of the President, dated July 28, 1950, 
entitled "Standard Metropolitan Area Definitions." 

The 147 standard metropolitan areas for which 1948 
Census of Business data are included in the Area Statis- 
tics Volumes are those defined by the Bm'eau of the 
Budget as of June 5, 1950, on the basis of 1950 popula- 
tion statistics available at that time. Subsequent to the 
preparation of Census of Business tabulations, the list of 
metropohtan areas was increased to 168 areas. The list 
of 147 standard metropohtan areas included in the 



Census of Business and the description of the territory 
which they cover will be found on page 0.31. These 
areas arc also shown on the map on page xiv. 

Cities of 5,000 inhabitants or more. — ^The list of cities 
included in table 103, "Counties and cities with 5,000 
inhabitants or more," was based on unofficial population 
figures and will differ slightly from the list as determined 
by the final 1950 Census of Population, which was not 
available in time for use for 1948 Census of Business 
piu-poses. Some cities which had 5,000 inhabitants or 
more were not included in the above tables, while a few 
which had less than 5,000 inhabitants have been included. 
A review of official preliminary 1950 population figures, 
available at the time of publication of this volume, 
permitted preparation of a list of those cities of 5,000 
inhabitants or more which were not included in the 
tables. Appendix E lists these cities. 



EXPLANATION OF TERMS 



Establishments. — Establishments consist of all whole- 
sale places of business as well as administrative offices, 
central warehouses, and other units of multiunit organi- 
zations which service, or are auxiliary to, the wholesale 
establishments of the organization. The count repre- 
sents the number of establishments in business at the end 
of 1948. 

Administrative oflSices and auxiliary units. — These in- 
clude locations of a midtiunit organization which service, 
or are auxiliary to, the wholesale establishments within 
the organization. They are not primarily engaged in 
selling merchandise. Included are such locations as 
district oflBces, purchasing offices, central warehouses, 
garages, etc., primarily engaged in performing adminis- 
trative or other auxiliary functions. Chain-store ware- 
houses and central warehouses which service the retail 
establishments of their own organization are classified in 
Retail Trade. 

Wholesale establishments. — These are separate places 
of business primarily engaged in selling, or acting as an 
agent in selling merchandise to (or buying for) business 
concerns, regardless of whether the latter purchased for 
resale or for business use. The place of business may be 
a warehouse from which sales are made at wholesale, a 
sales or brokerage office, or part of an office that may be 
shared with others. Each establishment of organiza- 
tions operating at more than one place of business is 
counted separately. 

Although the 1948 Census of Business enumerated all 
wholesale establishments regardless of size, tabulations 
exclude data for those that operated during the entire 
year 1948 but had sales of less than $5,000. In 1939 the 
corresponding figure for exclusion from the tabulations 
was $1, 000. 

Sales. — Sales include receipts from merchandise sold 
during 1948 together with any receipts from repairs or 
other services to customers, after deducting returns and 
allowances and trade discoimts. Sales of merchandise 



for others on a commission basis are included as well as 
sales for the account of the reporting establishment. 
Local and State sales taxes or Federal excise taxes col- 
lected by the wholesale establishment directly from 
customers and paid directly to local, State, or Federal 
taxing agencies are included. Gasoline, liquor, tobacco, 
and other excise taxes paid by the manufacturer or 
supplier and passed along to the wholesale establishment 
are also included in the sales figures. 

Sales figures therefore represent total sales and re- 
ceipts of all establishments primarily engaged in whole- 
sale trade. They do not include sales by manufacturing 
plants, general administrative offices of manufacturers, 
retailers, and other businesses whose primary activity is 
other than wholesale trade. 

Some establishments included in Wholesale Trade 
(such as buying brokers, pin-chasing agents, syndicate 
buyers, country grain elevators, and cream stations) 
are engaged chiefly in buying from the trade or public for 
clients or for parent organizations, selling being incidental 
or nonexistent. These establishments reported pm-chases 
in lieu of sales. Sales as shown for agents and brokers 
represent the selling value of the goods in the transactions 
negotiated. 

Operating expenses. — Total operating expenses, some- 
times referred to as "overhead," includes all expenses 
incurred during the census year by the reporting estab- 
lishment. It includes pay roll as well as other overhead 
expenses, but not the cost of merchandise sold, nor does 
it include withdrawals by owners of imincorporated busi- 
nesses. It covers such items as administrative, selling, 
warehousing, delivery, occupancy, and miscellaneous 
expenses. 

For agents, brokers, and conmiission petroleum bulk 
stations the entries under the heading "Operating ex- 
penses" in tables IC and IE for 1948 represent the 
amount of brokerage or commissions received rather 
than overhead expenses incurred. 



Pay roll. — Pay roll includes all compensations (sala- 
ries, wages, commissions, and bonuses) paid during the 
specified period to all employees. For corporations, it 
includes amounts paid to officers and executives; it does 
not include compensation for proprietors or firm mem- 
bers of unincorporated businesses. Pay roll is reported 
before deductions for social security, income tax with- 
holding, insurance, dues, etc. 

Pay roll — entire year. — All amounts paid during the 
census year to employees are included in this item. 

Pay roll — specified workweeks. — All amounts paid to 
employees on pay rolls for the workweek ending nearest 
March 15, July 15, and November 15 are included in these 
items. Provision was made for reporting pay roll ad- 
justed to the workweek where the pay period was on other 
than a workweek basis, and also for reporting on a work- 



week basis commission and bonus payments. However, 
for a number of establishments annual pay roll figures 
included amounts not allocated to weekly pay rolls. 

Active proprietors of unincorporated businesses. — 
Active proprietors include o^vners or partners of unincor- 
porated businesses who devoted the major portion of their 
time to the operation of the business duringNovember 1948. 

Paid employees. — Paid employees consist of the num- 
ber of employees including salaried officers and execu- 
tives of corporations who were on the pay roll for the 
specified workweeks. 

Stocks on hand. — Stocks are defined as the inventory, 
at cost value, of merchandise on hand for sale as of the 
end of 1948. Goods owned and out-on-consignment are 
included but not the value of merchandise of others held 
for sale on consignment.

LIST OF CORRECTIONS 



This volume has been prepared primarily by assembling 
and binding the statistical portions of previously issued 
Area Bulletins for the United States, States, the District 
of Columbia, and Territories. This publication plan 
was adopted to conserve public funds and expedite the 
issuance of the volume. The corrections appearing be- 
low represent changes which would ordinarily have been 
made if the voliune had been prepared by reprinting the 



contents of all bulletins. It was found desirable to 
reprint completely the following Bulletins for volume 
publication: Arizona, California, Tennessee, Alaska, and 
Hawaii. In these cases, some figures will differ from 
those shown in the Bulletins as originally issued. Differ- 
ences of 1 in totals for the same item appearing in differ- 
ent tables have not been listed where they are caused by 
rounding. 



["Line" and "Column" Indicate the position of the item on a page. Thus "line 10" means the tenth line from top of the table stuh, counting every line on which printing appears 
regardless of presence of entries In field. "Column 5" means fifth column from the left, not counting the stub column]
