PREFACE 

This is one of a series of volumes presenting final results of the 1954 Census of Busi- 
ness for Wholesale, Retail, and Selected Service Trades. Statistics for Wholesale Trade 
are contained in two volumes. Volume III and this volume. The 1954 Census, which was 
conducted by mail canvass of business establishments and by use of Internal Revenue 
Service records (see "Method of Enumeration" in Introduction), was authorized by law 
under Title 13, United States Code, Section 131. Previous business censuses covered 
the years 1929, 1933, 1935, 1939, and 1948. 

Important to the conduct of the 1954 Census of Business was the cooperation of the Bu- 
reau of 01dT\ge and Survivors Insurance and the Internal Revenue Service in permitting 
use of certain records, thus making possible a material reduction in the cost of enu- 
merating the Census. We wish also to acknowledge the assistance of many private and 
public organizations in the planning phase of the census and the excellent cooperation 
of some 1,750,000 business establishments in completing the required census forms. 

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 minimizing the burden of re- 
porting, as well as in determining the types of information which would be of greatest 
value. Especially helpful was the Advisory Council on Federal Reports, which through 
special panels of business experts advised and assisted in the development of inquiries. 
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 
Chambers of Commerce, business organizations, trade papers, local newspapers, and 
television and radio stations aided greatly in informing businessmen of the nature and 
objectives of the census and facilitated the collection of census reports. 

Primary responsibility for the 1954 Census of Business program was centered in the 
Business Division of the Census Bureau, under the direction of Harvey Kailin, Chief of the 
Division. John Albright, Chief of the Wholesale Trade Branch, supervised the wholesale 
trade segment of the Business Census. He was assisted by Robert Viehman, Assistant 
Chief of the Wholesale Trade Branch, Earl B. Wiley, Elizabeth S. Owen, and Charles 
Settlemyer. Maurice Haven served as Assistant Branch Chief until September 18, 1955. 

Processing of the 1954 Census of Business reports was performed by the Economic 
Operations Division, under the supervision of M. D. Bingham, Division Chief, and 
Irving Weiss, Assistant Chief. Max Van Horn, then Chief of the Wholesale Branch, was 
responsible for processing Wholesale Trade reports and tabulations. He was assisted by 
Blynn T. Shafer and Eugene L. Wendt. 

In the Field Division, Jack B. Robertson, then Chief of the Division; Ivan G. Munro, 
Assistant Chief; and Arthur Cook, then Chief of the Economic Census Branch, directed 
the field work for the Census of Business. 

Important functions were also performed by the Machine Tabulation Division under 
C. F. Van Aken, Chief; Mrs. Catherine M. Neafsey, Chief of the Economics Section, was 
responsible for machine tabulation techniques and procedures used in Wholesale Trade 
tabulations. 

Geography Division personnel participating in various phases of Business Census work 
were Clarence E. Batschelet, Chief; Robert Klove, Assistant Chief; and William T. Fay, 
Chief, Survey Planning Branch. 

Donald K. Heiser, Chief of the Electronics Systems Branch, assisted by Rudolph M. 
Micoly, Chief of Operations for the Branch, was responsible for planning and use of 
electronic computor and accompanying high-speed printer equipment. Robert H. Brooks, 
Chief, Graphics Branch, was responsible for preparing Census of Business publications 
for reproduction. Mrs. Elma Beynon of the Statistical Reports Division reviewed all 
text material and table forms, and assisted on publications problems.

INTRODUCTION 



The 1954 Census of Business, along with the 1954 Censuses 
of Manufactures and Mineral Industries, was authorized by law 
under Title 13, United States Code, Section 131. These 1954 
Censuses covered businesses operated in continental United 
States, Alaska, and Hawaii. Separate Censuses of Business and 
Manufactures for 1954 were also conducted in Puerto Rico jointly 
with the Commonwealth Government. 

The 1954 Census of Business covered Wholesale Trade, Retail 
Trade, and Selected Service Trades. This volume provides find- 
ings for that portion of the 1954 Census of Business which relates 
to Wholesale Trade. 

KINDS OF BUSINESS COVERED 

This report covers all establishments which, during 1954, re- 
ported any paid employment and which were included in Whole- 
sale Trade as defined in the Standard Industrial Classification 
Manual , Volume II, Nonmanufacturing Industries, 1949 edition, 
issued by the Bureau of the Budget, Executive Office of the Presi- 
dent, with the exception of milk dealers which, in conformity with 
a subsequent action of the Bureau of the Budget, have been 
classified in the manufacturing industries. 

Wholesale Trade as defined in the Standard Industrial Classi- 
fication Manual , and as covered in the 1954 Census, includes 
establishments or places of business primarily engaged in selling 
merchandise directly to retailers; to industrial, commercial, 
institutional or professional users; or to other wholesalers; or 
acting as agents in buying merchandise for, or selling mer- 
chandise to, such persons or companies. 

Wholesale Trade is divided, in the Standard Industrial Classi- 



fication Manual , into two parts: "Merchant wholesalers," 
and "Wholesale trade, other than merchant wholesalers." "Mer- 
chant wholesalers" includes establishments usually known as 
wholesalers, merchant wholesalers or jobbers primarily engaged 
in buying, taking title to and, when customary, physically storing 
and handling the goods sold. Also included in this group are 
industrial goods distributors, foreign trade merchants, cash-and- 
carry wholesalers, drop shippers andwagon(truck)distributors. 
"Wholesale trade, other than merchant wholesalers" includes 
four general types of establishments; Sales branches and sales 
offices of manufacturing and mining companies; petroleum 
bulk plants and terminals; merchandise agents and brokers; 
and assemblers of farm products. 

METHOD OF ENUMERATION 

Information for establishments primarily in Wholesale Trade 
was obtained by means of a mail canvass. Report forms were 
mailed to all business firms included in the active records of 
the Internal Revenue Service as subject to payment of Federal 
Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes (i. e., employers of 
one or more persons) and which were classified in the records 
of the Bureau of Old-Age and Survivors Insurance (BOASI) as 
wholly or partially engaged in wholesale, retail, manufacturing, 
mineral industries, and in major groups 70, 72, 73, 75, 76, 78, 
and 79 of the Service portion of the Standard Industrial Classi- 
fication Manual . In addition, report forms were mailed to all 
establishments which BOASI had not classified by kind of busi- 
ness prior to mailing of Census report forms. Each establish- 
ment was mailed a report form appropriate to its BOASI classi- 
fication (for those cases for which BOASI classification had not 
yet been established, a general purpose form was used) but its 
1954 Census classification was determined by replies to ques- 
tions on the Census report form. (See Appendix C, Report 
Forms.) 



COMPARISON OF 1948 AND 1954 CENSUSES 

The 1948 and 1954 Business Censuses differed in several 
respects, which to some degree affect the comparability of the 
data for Wholesale Trade. In the case of some of these differ- 
ences (items 1, 2, 3, and 4 below) it has been feasible to revise 
the 1948 data reproduced herein so as to make them comparable 
with the data for 1954. The more important revisions and dif- 
ferences are as follows: 

(1) The 1948 Census figures have been revised to the 1954 
basis by excluding establishments with no paid employment during 
the census year. In 1948, this class of establishments accounted 
for some 25,000 establishments in the United States with sales 
for the year of approximately $2.9 billion, or less than two 
percent of the total wholesale trade sales volume. 

(2) The definition of Wholesale Trade in the 1954 Census 
differs from that of the 1948 and previous censuses by the exclu- 
sion of wholesale milk bottling plants. The 1948 data shown in 
this and other 1954 Census of Business publications have been 
revised to the 1954 basis and will differ in this respect from the 
results in previously issued 1948 Census of Business publications . 
For 1954, data for plants previously classified as wholesale milk 
bottling plants are included in reports of the Census of Manu- 
factures. 

(3) The general policy of classifying the separately incor- 
porated sales subsidiaries of manufacturing companies pri- 
marily engaged in selling the products of the parent company 
as "Manufacturers' sales branches and sales offices" rather than 
"Merchant wholesalers" has been followed more completely 
in the 1954 Census than in previous censuses. The 1948 data 
shown in this and other 1954 Census of Business publications have 
been revised to the 1954 basis and will differ in this respect 
from the results in previously issued 1948 Census of Business 
publications. 

(4) 1948 data likewise have been revised where corrections in 
the classification of certain establishments have been found 
necessary, in order that the 1948 and 1954 Censuses be on a 
comparable basis. 

(5) The adoption of the mail canvass method in the 1954 
Census, described under METHOD OF ENUMERATION, above, 
made it feasible to systematically include "nonrecognizable" 
establishments in the coverage of the census. This class of 
establishments consists of businesses which, in a field canvass 
procedure such as was used in previous Censuses, would not 
have been located by enumerators in the course of their can- 
vass because they do not have the appearance of a place of busi- 
ness. Businesses operated from the home, or on an itinerant 
basis, are the most frequently occurring examples of "nonrecog- 
nizable" businesses. However, differences between the two Cen- 
suses in this respect should be minor since the use of records 
of the Bureau of Old-Age and Survivors Insurance as a coverage 
check in the 1948 Census operations made it possible to account 
for a substantial portion of the " nonrecognizable" establishments 
in that Census. 

(6) In the 1954 Census of Business, the classification "Fish 
and seafood wholesalers" included establishments in fishing 
or producing areas that packed and shipped fresh or iced fish, 
as well as seafood merchants in wholesale marketing centers. 
Also in 1954, establishments primarily engaged in filleting or 
eviscerating fish and those shucking and packing oysters were 
not included in Wholesale Trade, but were included in the Census 
of Manufactures. In the 1948 Wholesale Census, packers and 
shippers of fresh or iced fish located in the fishing or producing 



1 



WHOLESALE TRADE-AREA STATISTICS 



areas, together with oyster shucking houses, were included 
under the general classification "Assemblers, mainly farm 
products . " 

(7) Special care was exercised in the 1954 Census to include 
in manufacturing industries, rather than in wholesale trade, 
poultry dressing establishments primarily deriving their receipts 
from poultry dressing at the plant. In the 1948 Census, it was 
not always possible to distinguish such establishments from 
"Poultry, poultry products distributors." 

(8) A change was made in 1954 in the classification of "Lum- 
ber, millwork wholesalers." In the 1948 Census, sales to gen- 
eral contractors and builders were considered as "wholesale" 
sales and establishments primarily engaged in making such sales 
were considered as wholesale distributors. Establishments with 
sales primarily to "other contractors" (i. e., special trade 
contractors), however, were classified in Retail Trade. For 
purposes of the 1954 Census, sales to contractors— whether gen- 
eral or special trade contractors— have been considered as re- 
tail and establishments primarily engaged in making such sales 
are classified in Retail Trade. 

(9) Establishments identified as "Electronic parts, equipment 
distributors" represent a new classification first appearing in 
the 1954 Census. Many of the establishments are new in this 
classification, not having been in business in 1948, while others 
appear in this classification after having changed their businesses 
since 1948. A common transition was from electrical appli- 
ances, radios, television sets, etc., to electronic parts and equip- 
ment. 

(10) The classification "Stationery, office supplies whole- 
salers" has been broadened to include advertising novelties and 
specialties houses as well as stationery, office supplies whole- 
salers. In the 1948 Census such establishments were classi- 
fied as "Merchant wholesalers, miscellaneous products." 

(11) The classification "Gift, art goods, greeting cards whole- 
salers" is being used for the first time in the 1954 Census. In 
previous censuses such establishments would have been classi- 
fied as "Other recreation goods wholesalers" or "Other mer- 
chant wholesalers, miscellaneous products." 

(12) The kinds of business under the general type-of-operation 
group "Manufacturers' sales branches, sales offices" have been 
defined in 1954 to parallel more closely the classification of 
establishments in the Census of Manufactures— establishments 
for which they sell— rather than in the merchant wholesaler 
classification pattern used in the 1948 Wholesale Census. For 
example, data are shown for sales branches and sales offices of 
"Food and kindred products," a classification which corre- 
sponds with a Census of Manufactures' industry group. Like- 
wise, sales branches and sales offices of "Chemicals and allied 
products" manufacturers are identified separately. This type 
of classification permits ready comparisons of sales branch 
and sales office activities with factories for which they serve as 
outlets. In some cases comparability with Census of Manufac- 
tures classifications was accomplished merely by a change in the 
title of the sales branch or sales office classification; in others 
it was necessary to change the content of the 1954 classifica- 
tion from what it was in 1948. 

(13) The classification "Assemblers of farm products" was 
redefined in the 1954 Census to exclude "packers and shippers" 
of fish and seafood, as described above. In addition, it should 
be noted that 1954 data for assemblers of farm products tend to 
differ somewhat from the 1948 figures, particularly for those 
establishments handling products with high "support" prices. 
For example, country grain elevators, in periods such as 
1948 when the market price of grain was higher than the "sup- 
port" price, sold grain purchased from farmers and in their 
Census of Business report forms reported the sales of such 
grain. In 1954, however, a number of commodities moved un- 
der support loans; the grain elevators did not purchase or 
subsequently sell these commodities. Consequently, the re- 
ceipts reported for census purposes were based on the serv- 
ice charge for storing these commodities. As a result, in 
some areas sales volume for this class of establishments in 
1954 was considerably lower than in 1948. 



(14) Manufacturers' Sales Branches, Sales Offices.— Cover- 
age of these classes of establishments differed somewhat in the 
1954 mail canvass from 1948 when there was a field enumera- 
tion. Over-all the count of branches and offices was smaller 
in 1954, particularly in larger cities and by firms operating 
a small number of such establishments, as the result of the 
inclusion of some sales branches and sales offices in plant 
reports, or in reports covering units auxiliary to manufacturing. 
(Employment and payroll for the branches and offices included 
in plant reports or reported as auxiliary to manufacturing will 
be included in figures for the Census of Manufactures.) An 
analysis of a sample of firms reporting sales branches and 
sales offices in 1948 but not in 1954 indicates that, for the 
country as a whole, between 5 and 10 percent of the sales 
branches with stocks and a little greater percentage of the sales 
offices without stocks which were in the 1948 Census were not 
enumerated as these types of establishments in 1954. However, 
the effect on sales is somewhat less since these establishments 
generally were smaller than the average. 

Table IC of the United States summary chapter presents 
summary comparisons, 1954 and 1948, by type of operation and 
kind of business. See Appendix B for comparison of 1954 and 
1948 classification. 

CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA 

In accordance with Census law, any data which would disclose 
the operations of an individual establishment or business organi- 
zation are not published. The number of establishments in a 
kind of business is not considered a disclosure by Census rules, 
so that this item is shown in instances where other items of 
information for the same establishments are suppressed. 

EXPLANATION OF TERMS 

Establishments . — Census of Business figures represent a sum- 
mary of reports for individual establishments rather than com- 
panies. A separate report was obtained for each location where 
business was conducted, including each location of multiunit 
organizations. Each report in the census was tabulated in ac- 
cordance with the physical location at which the business was 
conducted. 

Where two or more activities were carried on at a single 
establishment, the entire establishment was classified on the 
basis of its major activity and all data for it were included in 
that classification. 

The count of establishments does not include those places 
which conducted business at some time during 1954 but which 
went out of business before the end of 1954; however, sales, 
employment, payroll, etc., of such establishments are included. 

This volume does not include figures for those locations of a 
multiunit organization which service or are auxiliary to whole- 
sale establishments of the organization, such as separate storage 
warehouses and administrative offices. Information for this 
type of unit will be included in Volume III of the 1954 Census of 
Business publications. In the 1948 Business Census, figures 
for such units, where included in the tabulations, were sep- 
arately identified. 

Sales.— Sales are defined to include total receipts from cus- 
tomers during 1954, after deductions of returns, allowances 
and discounts. They include the amount of local and State sales 
taxes or Federal excise taxes which are collected by the es- 
tablishments directly from customers and paid directly by the 
establishments to a local. State, or Federal taxing agency. Ex- 
cise taxes and import duties paid by wholesale establishments, 
or paid by manufacturers or importers and passed along to 
wholesale businesses are also included. Sales include receipts 
from repairs and from other services to customers but ex- 
clude amounts not received from customers, such as income 
from investments and rental of real estate. 

The sales figures, therefore, represent total sales and re- 
ceipts of all establishments primarily engaged in wholesale 
trade including any retail sales made by them. They do not 
include sales at wholesale accountedfor by manufacturing plants. 



INTRODUCTION 



retail stores, and other business establishments whose primary 
activity is other than wholesale trade. 

Sales as shown in the accompanying tables for merchandise 
agents and brokers represent the value of the goods involved in 
sales transactions negotiated, rather than commissions received 
or earnings. 

Inventories, end of year. — Inventories consist of stocks, at 
cost value, of merchandise owned and on hand for sale at the end 
of the year. Goods owned by the reporting establishments but 
held by others on consignment basis are included. 

Operating expenses .— Operating expenses include payroll as 
well as other overhead expenses, but not the cost of mer- 
chandise nor withdrawals by owners of unincorporated busi- 
nesses. The term covers such items as administrative, selling, 
warehouse, delivery, occupancy, and miscellaneous expenses. 

For merchandise agents and brokers, and for commission 
petroleum bulk plants, entries under the heading "Operating 
expenses" represent the amount of brokerage or commission 
received rather than total expenses incurred. 

Payroll, entire year. — Payroll includes all forms of com- 
pensation (salaries, wages, commissions, bonuses, and vaca- 
tion allowances) paid during the year to all employees. For 
corporations, it includes amounts paid to officers and executives, 
however, it does not include compensation of proprietors or of 
partners of unincorporated businesses. Payroll is reported 
before deductions for Social Security, income tax, insurance 
dues, etc. 

Payroll — workweek ended nearest November 15 .— This item 
consists of payroll, as defined above, which was paid to persons 
on the payroll in the pay period ended nearest November 15, 
1954 . Establishments whose payroll period was other than a week 
were requested to adjust the figures to a weekly basis. 

Paid employees— specified workweek. — Paid employees con- 
sist of the number of employees, including salaried officers and 
executives of corporations, who were on the payroll for the 
workweek ended nearest March 15, May 15, August 15, and No- 
vember 15, 1954. 

Active proprietors of unincorporated businesses . — Active 
proprietors include owners or partners of unincorporated busi- 
nesses who devoted the major portion of their time to the opera- 
tion of the business for the workweek ended nearest November 
15, 1954. 

CITY SIZE 

Each establishment included in the 1954 Census of Business 
was classified into one of nine city-size groups, based on the 
number of inhabitants in the city in which the establishment was 
located. City size was determined by the 1950 Census of 
Population count, except for places which had special censuses 
taken by the Bureau of the Census between April 1, 1950, and 
September 15, 1954. The group entitled "Remainder of United 
States" includes all establishments located in incorporated cities 
of less than 5,000 inhabitants, and in rural areas. 

STANDARD METROPOLITAN AREA CONCEPT 

In addition to those for States, counties, and cities. Census of 
Business statistics are presented for standard metropolitan 



areas. These are areas which have been defined and established 
cooperatively by a number of interested Federal agencies under 
the direction of the Bureau of the Budget for purposes of compila- 
tion and presentation of a wide variety of statistical data on a 
uniform area basis. 

The general concept adopted in defining a standard metropolitan 
area was that of an integrated economic area with a large volume 
of daily travel and communication between a central city of 
50,000 inhabitants or more and the outlying parts of the area. 
This resulted in anareaconsiderably more restricted, especially 
for the larger cities, than the "market" or "trading" area. Each 
area (except in New England) consists of one or more counties. 
In New England, metropolitan areas have been defined on a town 
basis rather than a county basis. A complete statement of the 
principles adopted as a guide in applying this general 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 173 standard metropolitan areas in continental United 
States and Hawaii for which 1954 Census of Business data are 
included in this volume are those defined by the Bureau of the 
Budget as of June 8, 1954. (See list on page 8.) 



CLASSIFICATION OF WHOLESALE ESTABLISHMENTS 

Each wholesale establishment was classified in the Census by 
type of operation and kind of business as described in Appendix 
A. 

Complete kind-of-business detail is shown in the 1954 Census 
of Business reports only at the United States level. Data for 
States, standard metropolitan areas, and counties are presented 
at six different levels of kind-of-business detail. The amount 
of detail shown at each level is determined by the number of 
wholesale establishments in 1954 in the particular area, in ac- 
cordance with the following plan; 



Stub A.— 306 trade classifications— United States summary (table 
lA). 

Stub B. — 159 trade classifications— States (table 101) and stand- 
ard metropolitan areas (table 103) with 5,000 or more 
wholesale establishments. 

Stub C— 102 trade classifications— States (table 101) and stand- 
ard metropolitan areas (table 103) with 1,000-4,999 
wholesale establishments. 

Stub D.— 27 trade classifications— States (table 101) with fewer 
than 1,000 wholesale establishments. 

Stub E.— 37 trade classifications— standard metropolitan areas 
(table 103) with 400-999 wholesale establishments. 

Stub F.— 21 trade classifications— standard metropolitan areas 
(table 103) with fewer than 400 wholesale establish- 
ments—counties (table 104) with 150 or more wholesale 
establishments. 

Stub G.— 5 trade classifications— counties (table 104) with 100- 
149 wholesale establishments (data are presented in 
table 102 for all counties in the State regardless of size).
