TABLE 1.-Estimated number of production workers in manufacturing industries 1
TABLE 1.-Estimated number of production workers in manufacturing industries ↳ Continued
1 October 1946 estimates are based on reports from 33,700 cooperating establishments covering 7,378,000 production workers. Estimates for the major industry groups have been adjusted to levels indicated by final 1944 data made available by the Bureau of Employment Security of the Federal Security Agency. Estimates for individual industries have been adjusted to levels indicated by the 1939 Census of Manufac tures but not to Federal Security Agency data. For this reason, together with the fact that this Bureau has not prepared estimates for certain industries, the sum of the individual industry estimates will not agree with the totals shown for the major industry groups.
