No Annual Values Are Presented Here. Annual Values Could Be Computed From The Monthly Data, But Such Computation Would Require Knowledge Of The Number Of Workdays In Each Month - A Quantity Which Varies From Month To Month, And For Any Given Month, From Year To Year. A Simple Average Of The Monthly Values Given Here Will Be A Biased Estimate Of The Annual Average. Source: Federal Housing Administration, Division Of Research And Statistics
