Although This Series Has Been Subdivided Into Two Time Segments, Both Raw Variables And Both Seasonally Adjusted Variables May Be Considered Comparable And Run As One Variable. Data Have Been Checked With The Files Of Commodity Exchange And Their Figures Agree Exactly With The Scb. Data Beginning July 1933 Are Available In The Commodity Exchange, Inc.
