U. S. Bureau of the Census, Annual Survey of Manufactures: 1953.
DEPOSITED BY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
The Annual Survey of Manufactures, of which this one for 1953 is the fifth, had been in the planning
stage since the late 1930's.
The actual beginning of the survey in 1949 followed the passage of legislation
changing the frequency of the Census of Manufactures from a two-year to a five-year basis.
groups, as well as officials of the Census Bureau, believed that a program of quinquennial Censuses. of
Manufactures supplemented by an annual survey on a sample basis afforded a more useful set of data at a
lower cost to both business and Government than did the previous biennial Censuses of Manufactures.
In recent years, the Annual Survey has constituted the major project in the statistical program of
the Bureau's Industry Division,
Maxwell R. Conklin, Chief of the Industry Division, was in charge of the
work with the assistance of Louis J. Owen, Assistant Chief for Management, and Owen C. Gretton,
Assistant Chief for Program.
Within the Division, the primary responsibility for the programming and
processing phases of the Annual Survey has been centered in Murray D. Dessel, Chief, Economic Planning and Analysis Branch; Jack L. Ogus, Chief, Statistical Methods Branch; and Sol Dolleck, Chief
Operations Branch; together with the Chiefs of the Industry and Commodity Branches mentioned on the opposite page. In addition, special recognition is also due to Samuel Schweid and Donald Young of the
Operations Branch; Irvin Strauss and Arthur W. Horowitz of the Economic Planning and Analysis Branch; and Richard J. Rice and Herman Hess of Statistical Methods Branch of the Industry Division for their
participtaion in the Annual Survey of Manufactures. Morris R. Goldman was responsible for the prepara
tion of the statistics on industrial water use, fuels, and electric energy.
