Data Include All Finished Leather Held By Tanners, Shoe Manufacturers, Glove Manufacturers, Belting Manufacturers, Etc. Stock Figures Are Reported Currently To The Council By Practically The Entire Industry And Are Adjusted To An Industry Basis, So That They Are Comparable With Census Figures (From Scb 1938 Supplement, P. 194 Note 4 For P. 124). According To The Tanners' Council, 1920-1921 Figures Are Unrevised And The Original Data Was Not Checked By The Council. There Is Some Speculation That The Figure For May 1921 Is Too Large. 1938 Data Were Revised From The Commodities Exchange Incorporated "Hides", October 1939.
