Release: NBER Macrohistory Database
Series Has Been Subdivided Into Two Variables: (1) V826 -- Original Data, 1919-1947; (2) V827 -- Original Data, 1947-1963. This Index Measures Changes In The Physical Volume Of Production Of Clay, Glass, And Stone Manufactured Products. It Does Not Cover Stone And Earth Minerals. It Is Based On Production Or Shipments Data From The Bureau Of The Census, The Bureau Of Mines, And Trade Associations, Such As The American Glassware Association; And On Bls Man-Hours Data. The Index Is 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. Most Clay, Glass, And Stone Products (85 Per Cent Of The Output In 1957-59) Are Classified As Construction Materials And Are Included In The Index For That Market Group. In 1957-59 They Accounted For Over One- Quarter Of Total Production Of Construction Materials. Major Revisions Of The Clay, Glass, And Stone Index Were Made In 1940, 1943, 1953, 1959, And 1962. In Addition To Changes In The Base Period, The Revisions Affected The Composition Of The Index, Weighting, Adjustment To Benchmark Levels, Types Of Basic Data Used, And Method Of Seasonal Adjustment. Seasonal And Working-Day Adjustments Are By The Source. For A Detailed Description Of The Index And The Revisions, See Above Sources And"Federal Reserve Bulletin", December 1953.
