The Basis For The Index Is The National Lumber Manufacturers Association Series On Lumber Production, In Board Feet. This Index Is A Component Of The Federal Reserve Index Of Production Of Construction Materials, 1947-1963. The Indexes For Individual Series Are Available On The 1957-59 Base Only From 1947; For Earlier Years The Latest Data Are On A 1935-39 Base. This Series Is Therefore Shown Here In Two Segments With An Overlap Of One Year. Seasonal Adjustment For 1919-47 Is By The Source; And For 1947-63 By NBER. The Original And Seasonally Adjusted Data Have Been Adjusted For Variations In The Number Of Working Days. See Lipsey And Preston, P. 287 For Additional Information.
