Introduction to the Economic Census

PURPOSES AND USES OF THE ECONOMIC CENSUS
The economic census is the major source of facts about the structure and functioning of the Nation’s economy. It provides essential information for government, business, industry, and the general public. The economic census furnishes an important part of the framework for such composite measures as the gross domestic product, input/output measures, production and price indexes, and other statistical series that measure short-term changes in economic conditions. Policymaking agencies of the Federal Government use the data, especially in monitoring economic activity and providing assistance to business. State and local governments use the data to assess business activities and tax bases within their jurisdictions and to develop programs to attract business. Trade associations study trends in their own and competing industries and keep their members informed of market changes. Individual businesses use the data to locate potential markets and to analyze their own production and sales performance relative to industry or area averages.

Special programs also cover enterprise statistics and minority-owned and women-owned businesses. (The 1992 Census of Agriculture and 1992 Census of Governments are conducted separately.) The next economic census is scheduled to be taken in 1998 covering the year 1997.

AVAILABILITY OF THE DATA
The results of the economic census are available in printed reports for sale by the U.S. Government Printing Office and on compact discs for sale by the Census Bureau. Order forms for all types of products are available on request from Customer Services, Bureau of the Census, Washington, DC 20233-8300. A more complete description of publications being issued from this census is on the inside back cover of this document. Census facts are also widely disseminated by trade associations, business journals, and newspapers. Volumes containing census statistics are available in most major public and college libraries. Finally, State data centers in every State as well as business and industry data centers in many States also supply economic census statistics.

AUTHORITY AND SCOPE
Title 13 of the United States Code (sections 131, 191, and 224) directs the Census Bureau to take the economic census every 5 years, covering years ending in 2 and 7. The 1992 Economic Census consists of the following eight censuses: • Census of Retail Trade • Census of Wholesale Trade • Census of Service Industries • Census of Financial, Insurance, and Real Estate Industries • Census of Transportation, Communications, and Utilities • Census of Manufactures • Census of Mineral Industries • Census of Construction Industries WHOLESALE TRADE—GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES

WHAT’S NEW IN 1992
The 1992 Economic Census covers more of the economy than any previous census. New for 1992 are data on communications, utilities, finance, insurance, and real estate, as well as coverage of more transportation industries. The economic, agriculture, and governments censuses now collectively cover nearly 98 percent of all economic activity. Among other changes, new 1992 definitions affect the boundaries of about a third of all metropolitan areas. Also, the Survey of Women-Owned Businesses has now been expanded to include all corporations.

HISTORICAL INFORMATION
The economic census has been taken as an integrated program at 5-year intervals since 1967 and before that for 1963, 1958, and 1954. Prior to that time, the individual subcomponents of the economic census were taken separately at varying intervals. INTRODUCTION III

The economic census traces its beginnings to the 1810 Decennial Census, when questions on manufacturing were included with those for population. Coverage of economic activities was expanded for 1840 and subsequent censuses to include mining and some commercial activities. In 1902, Congress established a permanent Census Bureau and directed that a census of manufactures be taken every 5 years. The 1905 Manufactures Census was the first time a census was taken apart from the regular every-10-year population census. The first census of business was taken in 1930, covering 1929. Initially it covered retail and wholesale trade and construction industries, but it was broadened in 1933 to include some of the service trades. The 1954 Economic Census was the first census to be fully integrated—providing comparable census data across economic sectors, using consistent time periods, concepts, definitions, classifications, and reporting units. It was the first census to be taken by mail, using lists of firms provided by the administrative records of other Federal agencies. Since 1963, administrative records also have been used to provide basic statistics for very small firms, reducing or eliminating the need to send them census questionnaires. The Enterprise Statistics Program, which publishes combined data from the economic census, was made possible with the implementation of the integrated census program in 1954. The range of industries covered in the economic censuses has continued to expand. The census of construction industries began on a regular basis in 1967, and the scope of service industries was broadened in 1967, 1977, and 1987. The census of transportation began in 1963 as a set of surveys covering travel, transportation of commodities, and trucks, but expanded in 1987 to cover business establishments in several transportation industries. For 1992, these statistics are incorporated into a broadened census of transportation, communications, and utilities. Also new for 1992 is the census of financial, insurance, and real estate industries. This is part of a gradual expansion in coverage of industries previously subjected to government regulation.

The Survey of Minority-Owned Business Enterprises was first conducted as a special project in 1969 and was incorporated into the economic census in 1972 along with the Survey of Women-Owned Businesses. An economic census has also been taken in Puerto Rico since 1909, in the Virgin Islands of the United States and Guam since 1958, and in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands since 1982. Statistical reports from the 1987 and earlier censuses provide historical figures for the study of long-term time series and are available in some large libraries. All of the census data published since 1967 are still available for sale on microfiche from the Census Bureau.

AVAILABILITY OF MORE FREQUENT ECONOMIC DATA
While the census provides complete enumerations every 5 years, there are many needs for more frequent data as well. The Census Bureau conducts a number of monthly, quarterly, and annual surveys, with the results appearing in publication series such as Current Business Reports (retail and wholesale trade and service industries), the Annual Survey of Manufactures, Current Industrial Reports, and the Quarterly Financial Report. Most of these surveys, while providing more frequent observations, yield less kind-of-business and geographic detail than the census. The County Business Patterns program offers annual statistics on the number of establishments, employment, and payroll classified by industry within each county.

SOURCES FOR MORE INFORMATION
More information about the scope, coverage, classification system, data items, and publications for each of the economic censuses and related surveys is published in the Guide to the 1992 Economic Census and Related Statistics. More information on the methodology, procedures, and history of the census will be published in the History of the 1992 Economic Census . Contact Customer Services for information on availability.

Census of Wholesale Trade

GENERAL
The 1992 Census of Wholesale Trade, part of the 1992 Economic Census, covered wholesale trade as defined in the Standard Industrial Classification Manual: 1987 1 (SIC). It included all establishments with one or more paid employees primarily engaged in selling merchandise to retailers; other wholesalers; or industrial, commercial, institutional, farm, or professional users. Companies selling products to which they have title, as well as those acting as agents or brokers in buying or selling merchandise to others, are included. The census excluded governmental organizations classified in the covered industries except for wholesale liquor establishments operated by State and local governments. The basic tabulations in this report do not include data for establishments which are ‘‘auxiliary’’ (primary function is providing a service, such as warehouses) to other establishments within the same organization. Data for auxiliaries are presented in a subsequent report issued as part of the 1992 Enterprise Statistics reports. Wholesale firms without employees are excluded from the census. In the census of retail trade, the sales of firms with no paid employees are derived from administrative records of other Federal agencies rather than from a direct canvass. These sources proved impractical for wholesale firms without paid employees. In the census of wholesale trade, the sales value is the gross volume of business conducted. Firms which operated wholly or partly on a commission basis must provide both the gross volume of business conducted and commission receipts on census forms. Agents and brokers do not report to other Federal agencies the gross selling value of goods. Moreover, administrative records make no distinction between commission receipts and sales of products by wholesalers. Appendix A gives a more detailed explanation of census coverage and methodology.

classification is not considered a disclosure, therefore, this information may be released even though other information is withheld.

GEOGRAPHIC AREAS COVERED
This report series presents data for the following areas: 1. The United States as a whole. 2. Each State and the District of Columbia 3. Each consolidated metropolitan statistical area (CMSA) and primary metropolitan statistical area (PMSA) defined by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as of June 30, 1993. A CMSA is an area used to facilitate the presentation and analysis of data for large concentrations of metropolitan populations. It includes two or more contiguous PMSA’s which have a population of at least 1,000,0002 and which meet specific criteria of urban character and of social and economic integration. 4. Each metropolitan statistical area (MSA) defined by the OMB as of June 30, 1993. An MSA is an integrated economic and social unit with a population nucleus of at least 50,000 inhabitants. 2 Each MSA consists of one or more counties meeting standards of metropolitan character; in New England, cities and towns rather than counties are the component geographic units. 5. The area within the State outside metropolitan areas (MA’s). 6. Each county or county equivalent. 3 Counties are the primary divisions of States, except in Louisiana where they are called parishes and in Alaska where they are called boroughs and census areas. Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, and Virginia have one place or more that is independent of any county organization and constitutues primary divisions of their States. These places are treated as counties and as places. 7. Each consolidated city. 3 Consolidated cities are consolidated governments which consists of separately incorporated municipalities. 8. Each municipality of 2,500 inhabitants or more incorporated as a city, borough, village, or town.2 3

RELIABILITY OF DATA
All data compiled in this report originated from either census questionnaires or administrative records of other Federal agencies and, therefore, are not subject to sampling errors. However, the data are subject to nonsampling errors. Nonsampling errors can be attributed to many sources: inability to identify all cases in the actual universe; definition and classification difficulties; differences in the interpretation of questions; errors in recording or coding the data obtained; and other errors of collection, response, coverage, and estimation for missing or misreported data. The accuracy of these tabulated data is determined by the joint effects of the various nonsampling errors. No direct measurement of these effects has been obtained except for estimation for missing or misreported data; however, precautionary steps were taken in all phases of the collection, processing, and tabulation of the data in an effort to minimize the effects of nonsampling errors. The Census Bureau obtains on computer tape limited information extracted from administrative records of other Federal agencies. This information is used in conjunction with other information available to the Census Bureau to develop estimates for nonemployers, small employers, and other establishments for which responses were not received in time for publication. For an indication of the extent that data included in these reports were obtained from the administrative records of other Federal agencies and from estimation, rather than reports directly from respondents, see appendix E. Also, see appendix A for a more detailed explanation of census coverage and methodology.

Appendix A. General Explanation

CENSUS COVERAGE AND METHODOLOGY
Structure and method of enumeration. All wholesale firms that had at least one quarter of payroll in 1992 were included in the census of wholesale trade and were mailed either a regular census form or a short form designed to collect basic data and classification information only. The coverage and the method of obtaining census information from each follow: 1. Large companies, i.e., all multiunit firms and all single unit firms above the payroll size cutoff established to separate large from small employers, and a 10-percent sample of the small employers were mailed the appropriate 1992 Census of Distributive Trades establishment report forms. Although the payroll cutoff varied by kind of business, small employers generally included firms with one to three employees and represented about 10 percent of total wholesale sales. For the large companies, a report of company organization is conducted periodically to identify firms which operated establishments at more than one location and to obtain information on payroll and mid-March employment at each location. The 1991 Report of Company Organization was used as a coverage check in the census. In the 1992 Census, all multiestablishment firms were asked to notify the Census Bureau of any establishments for which a form was not received. Report forms were subsequently provided to the firms for these establishments. 2. Small companies other than those included in the 10-percent sample described above were mailed the short forms, which did not include questions on sales by commodity lines and employment by principal activity. Method of classifying kinds of business. Establishments receiving the regular census forms were classified on the basis of their answers to questions on sales by commodity lines and other inquiries. Those that received short forms were classified on the basis of their selfdesignation and answers to other inquiries.

Classifications. In both 1992 and 1987, classifications are based on the 1987 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Manual.1 As a result of a later clarification in 1992, the sale of industrial controls has been classified in electrical apparatus and equipment, wiring supplies, and construction materials (SIC 5063) as it was in 1982 and all previous censuses. In 1987, the sale of industrial controls was classified in industrial machinery and equipment (SIC 5084). Geographic areas. The boundaries of a number of areas for which data are shown in the 1992 census are not the same as in the 1987 census because of annexations; other boundary changes; and redefinitions of metropolitan statistical areas (MSA’s), primary metropolitan statistical areas (PMSA’s), and consolidated metropolitan statistical areas (CMSA’s).2 In addition, data for consolidated cities are included in the 1992 census. Data for special economic urban areas (SEUA’s) with 10,000 inhabitants or more in Michigan, Minnesota, New York, and Wisconsin qualified for publication in the 1992 census. This included townships in Michigan and Minnesota and towns in New York and Wisconsin. However, Minnesota did not have any townships that met the publication criteria.

EXPLANATION OF TERMS
Establishments. An establishment is a single physical location at which business is conducted. It is not necessarily identical with a company or enterprise, which may consist of one establishment or more. Census of wholesale trade figures represent a summary of reports for individual establishments rather than companies. For cases where a census report was received, separate information was obtained for each location where business was conducted. When administrative records of other Federal agencies were used instead of a census report, no information was available on the number of locations operated. Estimates of this number were derived from a sample and are provided in the wholesale trade report, Miscellaneous

COMPARABILITY OF THE 1987 AND 1992 CENSUSES
The 1987 and 1992 censuses were conducted under similar conditions and procedures except for the following: WHOLESALE TRADE—GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES

1 Standard Industrial Classification Manual: 1987. For sale by Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402. Stock No. 041-001-00314-2. 2 Newly defined metropolitan areas (MA’s) were announced by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) effective June 30, 1993.

Subjects (WC92-S-4). Each wholesale establishment was tabulated according to the physical location at which the business was conducted. The count of establishments represents the number in business at any time during 1992. Appendix G provides a comparison of the number of establishments active any time during the year versus the number in business at the end of the year. When two activities or more were carried on at a single location under a single ownership, all activities generally were grouped together as 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. However, when distinct and separate economic activities (for which different industry classification codes were appropriate) were conducted at a single location under a single ownership, and when conditions prescribed by the SIC manual for recognizing the existence of more than one establishment were met, separate establishment reports for each of the different activities were obtained in the census.
Firms. A firm is a business organization or entity consisting of one domestic establishment (location) or more under common ownership or control. All establishments of subsidiary firms are included as part of the owning or controlling firm. For the economic census, the terms ‘‘firm’’ and ‘‘company’’ are synonymous. Sales. Sales include merchandise sold for cash or credit at wholesale and retail by establishments primarily engaged in wholesale trade; receipts from rental or leasing of vehicles, equipment, instruments, tools, etc.; receipts for delivery, installation, maintenance, repair, alteration, storage, and other services; and gasoline, liquor, tobacco, and other excise taxes which are paid by the manufacturer and passed on to the wholesaler. Sales are net after deductions for refunds and allowances for merchandise returned by customers. Trade-in allowances are not deducted from total sales. Total sales do not include carrying or other credit charges; sales (or other) taxes collected from customers and forwarded to taxing authorities; and nonoperating income from such sources as investments, rental or sale of real estate, etc. Sales in this report do not include wholesale sales made by manufacturers, retailers, service establishments, or other businesses whose primary activity is other than wholesale trade. They do include receipts other than from the sale of merchandise at wholesale, e.g., service receipts, retail sales, etc., by establishments primarily engaged in wholesale trade. Sales figures include sales of all establishments in business at any time during the year. Sales shown for agents and brokers represented the value of the goods involved in the transactions rather than the commissions received or earnings. Annual payroll. Payroll includes all forms of compensation such as salaries, wages, commissions, bonuses, vacation allowances, sick-leave pay, employee contributions to A-2 APPENDIX A

qualified pension plans, and the value of payments in kind (e.g., free meals and lodgings) paid during the year to all employees. For corporations, payroll includes amounts paid to officers and executives; for unincorporated businesses, it does not include profit or other compensation of proprietors or partners. Payroll is reported before deductions for social security, income tax, insurance, union dues, etc. This definition of payroll is the same as that used on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form 941. First quarter payroll. This item consists of payroll, as defined above, paid to persons employed at any time during the quarter January to March 1992. Paid employees for pay period including March 12. Paid employees consist of the full- and part-time employees, including salaried officers and executives of corporations, who were on the payroll during the pay period including March 12. Included are employees on paid sick leave, paid holidays, and paid vacations; not included are proprietors and partners of unincorporated businesses. The definition of paid employees is the same as that used on IRS form 941. 1992 and 1991 inventories. Inventories consist of stocks of merchandise for sale at the end of 1992 and 1991. They were reported on an ownership basis; all merchandise owned by reporting establishments is included, even though some may be held by others for sale on consignment. Goods held by the reporting establishment, but owned by others, are not included. Data for 1992 and 1991 inventories LIFO composition are published in the 1992 Census of Wholesale Trade report, Miscellaneous Subjects (WC92-S-4). Operating expenses. Operating expenses include payroll as well as overhead expenses of the establishment. They do not include the cost of goods sold; income or excise taxes; or withdrawals by proprietors or partners of unincorporated businesses. Auxiliary establishments. Each company included in this census was asked to identify and separately report auxiliary locations whose primary functions were to manage, administer, service, or support the activities of the other establishments of the company. Data presented in this report do not include auxiliary establishments. Data for auxiliaries are presented in a subsequent report issued as part of the 1992 Enterprise Statistics reports.

KIND-OF-BUSINESS CLASSIFICATIONS
Wholesale trade, major groups 50 and 51 in the 1987 SIC manual, includes establishments primarily engaged in selling merchandise to retailers; to industrial, commercial, institutional, farm, or professional business users; or to other wholesalers; or acting as agents or brokers in buying merchandise for or selling merchandise to such persons or companies. WHOLESALE TRADE—GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES

JOBNAME: No Job Name PAGE: 3 SESS: 12 OUTPUT: Thu Jun 23 15:11:28 1994 /pssw01/disk2/economic/wc92a/0/14apdxa

The principal types of establishments included are: 1. Merchant wholesalers who take title to the goods they sell, such as wholesale merchants or jobbers, industrial distributors, voluntary group wholesalers, drop shippers, retailer cooperative warehouses, terminal elevators, and cooperative buying associations. 2. Manufacturers’ sales branches and offices (but not retail stores) maintained by manufacturing or mining enterprises apart from their plants or mines for the purpose of marketing their products. Sales branches and offices located at plants are included when separate records are available. 3. Agents, brokers, and commission merchants who buy or sell products owned by others on a commission or agency basis. Establishments primarily engaged in the wholesale distribution of used products are classified on the basis of the product sold. Establishments primarily engaged in selling merchandise to contractors are included in wholesale trade, with the exception of lumber yards and paint, glass, and wallpaper stores. These exceptions are classified in retail trade if they consider themselves retail, sell to the general public, and their sales to contractors and the general public is more than half their total sales. Establishments covered by the census were assigned kind-of-business classifications according to the industry classifications defined in the 1987 SIC manual. When a more detailed classification than defined in the SIC manual was needed, additional kinds-of-business were identified within an SIC industry. Kind-of-business classifications are not interchangeable with commodity classifications, because most businesses sell several kinds of commodities. The kind-of-business code assigned generally reflects either the individual commodity or the commodity group which is the primary source of the establishment’s receipts, or some mixture of commodities which characterizes the establishment’s business. Thus, the classification of establishments by kind of business does not make it possible to determine either the number of establishments handling a particular commodity or the sales of that commodity. For example, the groceries and related products classification excludes establishments selling food if the sale of food is not the primary source of receipts; moreover, even though establishments are classified as groceries and related products, some of their receipts may be derived from the sale of nonfood products. Information on the extent to which commodities are handled by different kinds of business is available in the 1992 Census of Wholesale Trade report, Commodity Line Sales (WC92-S-3). Descriptions of the 1992 Census of Wholesale Trade kind-of-business classifications follow:
