This section presents statistics on usage, finances, and operations of the various communications media: Postal service, telephone, telegraph, radio, television, newspapers, and books. Data on the postal service are included in the Annual Report of the Postmaster General. Statistics on revenues, volume of mail, and distribution of expenditures are presented in the U.S. Postal Service's annual Revenue and Cost Analysis Report. Principal sources of wire, radio, and television data are the Federal Communications Commission's Annual Report, its annual Statistics of Communications Common Carriers, and its annual releases of financial data reported by radio and television stations and networks. Statistics on number and circulation of newspapers and periodicals and on sales of books and pamphlets are issued by the Bureau of the Census in reports of the Census of Manufactures. Annual data on number and circulation of daily and Sunday newspapers appear in International Yearbook Number, issued by Editor and Publisher, New York. Monthly data on new books and new editions of books are presented by R. R. Bowker Company, New York, in Publishers' Weekly. Postal Service.-"Revenue and cost analysis" is the term used by the Postal Service to describe its system of attributing revenues and costs to classes of mail and service. This system draws primarily upon probability sampling techniques to develop estimates of revenues, volumes, and weights as well as costs by class of mail and special service. The costs attributed to classes of mail and special services are primarily incremental costs which vary in response to changes in volume; they account for roughly one-half of the total costs of the Postal Service. Postal rates are set sufficiently above these incremental cost levels to recover all costs of the Postal Service. Telephone and telegraph systems.-Statistical coverage of wire and radio communications has been concentrated in the Federal Communications Commission since its establishment in 1934. According to the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, the Commission has jurisdiction over carriers engaged in interstate or foreign communications service by means of wire or radio. The Commission requires all except the smallest of these carriers to file annual and monthly reports and requires the companies controlling any but the smallest to file annual reports. Full jurisdiction applies to practically all domestic and overseas telegraph carriers and to the Communications Satellite Corporation but not to a large number of telephone carriers which are engaged in interstate or foreign service only by connection with the facilities of another unaffiliated carrier. However, the gross operating revenues of the telephone carriers reporting annually to the Commission are estimated to cover over 90 percent of the revenues of all telephone carriers in the United States.
Broadcast. The number of broadcast stations authorized refers to the nun br licensed or holding construction permits. Total broadcast revenues are defined as total sales of time, talent, programs, and services of all networks and stations, less commissions to agencies. Reports filed with the Federal Communications Commission by broadcast stations and networks cover substantially all units operating in the United States and its outlying areas.
Nonbroadcast radio.-Most of the nonbroadcast radio services are grouped together as the safety and special radio services, which constitute the greatest number of radio stations licensed by the Federal Communications Commission. Utilization of these services by individuals, industry, commerce, and State and local government covers broad fields of operations in connection with protection of life and property, industrial and agricultural production, transportation, disaster, and civil defense.
