The figures given in this report for quantity represent the product reduced to the equivalent or the standard 9-inch fire brick. The quantity so reported for 1907 was 783,017,000 brick, valued at $14,946,045," or $19.09 per thousand, compared with 770,839,000, valued at $14,206,868, or $18.43 per thousand in 1906. This was a gain of 12,178,000 fire brick, or 1.58 per cent in quantity, and of $739,177, or 5.20 per cent in value. Pennsylvania is by far the largest producer, reporting 369,956,000 fire brick, valued at $6,907,904, or $18.67 per thousand; for 1906 this State reported 374,857,000 fire brick, valued at $6,854,640, or $18.29 per thousand, a loss in 1907 of 4,901,000 brick in quantity but a gain of $53,264 in value.

Kentucky was fourth in quantity in 1907 and fifth in value, and New Jersey was fifth in quantity and fourth in value.
