shown in the 1971 edition), for 1963 forward, to also include imports of separate chassis and bodies. (The 1971 edition identifies data for these years in that volume as imports of complete units only.) In this volume, the figures beginning 1966 (monthly, beginning 1972) reflect a small downward adjustment (from data shown in the 1973 BUSINESS STATISTICS) to delete two TSUSA codes, "motor vehicles chassis and bodies, not elsewhere shown,” which have been identified as automobile chassis and bodies. Also, effective February 1972, imports of auto trucks (valued $1,000 or less) are included; for earlier periods these were classified in a miscellaneous group.

Annual data prior to 1947 and monthly data for cars and trucks for 1963-70 (except detail for Canada) are in earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS (see reference note, p. 1 of this section). Note that monthly data for truck imports for 1966-70 do not include imports of separate chassis and bodies. Monthly data prior to 1963 (prior to 1966 for Canada) are available from the original Census reports. Data shown in the 1965 and earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS cover complete units and chassis, separate bedies for assembly or replacement, and used cars; data are not shown separately for trucks.

Prior to 1958 the data cover total truck trailers, i.e., the number of units shipped, including trailer chassis only, for sale separately. Effective 1958, shipments of complete trailers and chassis are defined as trailers in which the body is permanently attached to the chassis; not included are new trailer chassis shipped with detachable trailers. Also, beginning 1958, the data include complete trailers reported by manufacturers who purchase the chassis and add the body; prior to 1958 such assemblies are excluded. Detachable trailer bodies refer to all trailer bodies manufactured with or without detachable chassis or running gear, including those for use on ships or rail cars (minimum size 8' X 8' x 10'). Detachable trailer chassis (and running gear), manufactured for use with detachable trailer bodies, cover all detachable chassis, whether shipped with detachable bodies or not.

The large volume in 1953 reflects in part Defense Department procurement of small-capacity trailers of special construction. The total for complete trailers and chassis includes in addition to vans, the following types: Tank; bulk commodity and dry materials (except vans); pole and logging; platform; low-bed heavy haulers; dump trailers and dump chassis; all other trailers and chassis, except detachable trailers and detachable trailer chassis. Effective with this edition, all figures for complete trailers and chassis (except detachables) omit shipments of dollies or converter gear. Data were revised back to 1964.

Monthly data for 1961-72 for complete trailers as shown in the 1973 and earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS include shipments of dollies and converter gear; monthly data revised to exclude these items and detailed monthly data for detachable trailer bodies and for detachable trailer chassis sold separately for 1964-70 are available upon request. Monthly data for 1961-70 for vans are in earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS (see reference note, p. 1 of this section). Monthly data for 1945-62 for production (summarized on a different basis) appear in the 1963 and earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS.

Source: R.L. Polk & Company. Data represent the number of new passenger cars and trucks registered in the United States as follows: Registrations are included for Alaska beginning 1958 and for Hawaii beginning 1959; not included are registrations for the State of Oklahoma, effective April 1969.

The figures include all municipal, State, and nontactical Federal Government vehicles; not included are vehicles for which the Government takes delivery overseas and are not reported to R.L. Polk.

Imports (foreign car registration) cover all foreign cars, including domestically sponsored cars manufactured overseas. Excluded are U.S.-type cars manufactured or assembled in Canada and imported into the United States free of duty; such cars are counted as domestic car registrations. Beginning 1965, Volkswagen station wagons are counted as passenger cars (prior to 1965, as trucks).

For 1974, all annual totals include data for one State, data for which are not covered in the February-August 1974 monthly data; for November 1974, total passenger and import car figures include 1,300 cars sold in the January-October 1974 period, but not reported prior to November 1974. For the months August 1973 and April 1971, all data omit figures for one State. For 1972, annual truck figures include 4,200 units sold throughout the year but not previously reported; the 1972 annual car totals reflect the deletion of 130 import cars not deleted from the monthly data. For the year 1971, total and foreign cars include 13,500 units not distributed to the July-November 1971 monthly figures; for trucks, the year 1971 figure reflects deletion of 800 units which were not deleted from the monthly data.

Annual data prior to 1947 and monthly data for 1932-70 (import cars, 1959-70), except as noted below, are in earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS (see reference note, p. 1 of this section). Revisions for passenger cars (1952, 1954, and 1955) and additional notes for trucks (revised prior to 1956) are in the 1963 BUSINESS STATISTICS note; November 1959 truck registrations were revised to 74,300 units. Passenger car registrations prior to 1932 are on p. 19 of the August 1933 SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS; monthly data for new import cars (1956-58) and trucks (1925-31) are available upon request.

Sources: Beginning 1966, published jointly by the Association of American Railroads and the American Railway Car Institute; prior to 1966, by the Institute. The data cover all car builders (both equipment manufacturers and railroad and private-line shops). In this volume, all figures cover new freight cars for domestic use only and pertain to all types of cars for railroads, private car lines and industries, and governmental customers; excluded are rebuilt cars and cars for export.

New orders represent net new orders, i.e., adjusted for cancellations; end-of-period backlog figures are not similarly adjusted.

Monthly data for 1967-70 are in the 1973 and 1971 editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS. Data through 1968 as shown in earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS also cover freight cars for export by equipment manufacturers; see reference note, p. 1 of blue section of the 1969 edition.

Imports as shown for 1965 omit fragmentary data available for November and December 1965 under the Automotive Products Trade Act of 1965 (effective October 22, 1965); for January-April 1966, total and imports from Canada include new and used cars and other motor vehicles not specifically identified under the classification system in effect. Effective May 1966, data are defined as imports of new, complete, on-highway, four-wheeled passenger automobiles. 9

Sources: Interstate Commerce Commission (for annual data through 1970, except cars held for repairs) and the Association of American Railroads (for monthly data and cars held for repairs). The ICC annual data refer to the total number of freight-carrying cars and average car-carrying capacity available for service at close of year; the aggregate capacity measures total carrying capacity at end of year for units owned and used plus cars leased from others. According to the ICC, the data over the years shown are not strictly comparable because of changes in accounting and reporting. The data cover class I roads, which for the period shown have accounted for about 95 percent of the total U.S. mileage operated by all line-haul railroads. Effective December 1955 and December 1965, the data reflect changes in the definition of class I roads; beginning 1965, class I railroads are those having average annual operating revenues of $5 million or more (from December 1955 through November 1965, $3 million or more; for The Association's end-of-month figures for revenue freight cars are as reported to their Car Service Division by class I roads; as shown in this volume, data exclude cars on private lines and railroads owned and controlled refrigerator cars. (Estimated total ownership and car capacity, including estimates for the omitted types, as well as for class II roads and for switching and terminal companies, are shown monthly in the Association's weekly Car Service Statement, CS-54A, “Revenue Freight Loaded by Commodities and Total Received from Connections.")

The original monthly condition report, Car Service-60A, gives the

ownership of cars and cars undergoing or awaiting heavy and light repairs, by districts, by individual roads, and by type of car.

Yearend figures for years prior to 1947 and monthly data for 1929-70 (except car capacity, 1963-70) are in earlier editions of BUSINESS STATISTICS (see reference note, p. 1 of this section). Monthly data for capacity prior to 1963 appear in the Car Service 54A report noted above (1961-62) and in the discontinued monthly report Car Service 15A, Revenue Freight Car Ownership (prior to 1961). Minor revisions have been made in some of the figures appearing in BUSINESS STATISTICS prior to the 1947 issue.
