THE Bureau of Labor Statistics received and tabulated reports concerning the volume of employment in August, 1919, from representative establishments in 13 manufacturing industries. Comparing the figures of August, 1919, with those of identical establishments for August, 1918, it appears that in 6 industries there was an increase in the number of persons employed, while in 7 there was a decrease. The largest increase, 18.1 per cent, is shown in automobile manufacturing, and the greatest decreases--33.2 and 25.2 per cent--appear in cigar manufacturing and car building and repairing, respectively. Ten of the 13 industries show an increase in the total amount of the pay roll for August, 1919, as compared with August, 1918, and 3 show a decrease.
