These estimates are based on (1) monthly building-permit reports adjusted for lapsed permits and for lag between permit issuance and the start of con. struction, (2) continuous field surveys in nonpermit-issuing places, and (3) reports of public construction contract awards.

Private construction costs are based on permit valuation adjusted for understatement of costs shown on permit applications. Public construction costs are based on contract values or estimated construction costs for indi. vidual projects.

NOTE: For a description of these series, see Techniques of Preparing Major BLB Statistical Series, BLS Bull. 1168 (1984).

1 The injury-frequency rate is the average number of disabling work injuries for each million employee-hours worked. A disabling work injury is any Injury occurring in the course of and arising out of employment, which (a) results in death or permanent physical impairment, or (b) makes the injured worker unable to perform the duties of any regularly established job which is open and available to him throughout the hours corresponding to his regular shift on any one or more days after the day of injury (including Sundays, days off, or plant shutdowns). The term “Injury" includes occupational disease.

Rates are preliminary and subject to revision when final annual data become avallable.

Insufficient data to warrant presentation of average. NOTE: These data are compiled in accordance with the American Standard Method of Recording and Measuring Work Injury Experience, approved by the American Standards Association, 1954.

Information on concepts, methodology, etc., is given in Techniques of Preparing Major BLS Statistical Series, BLS Bull. 1168 (1954).

How American Buying Habits Change

A New Publication on
City Worker Family Expenditures

Since 1875

• Traces revolutionary changes in living standards of American workers
since the end of the 19th century.
Brings together, for the first time, findings of studies which the Labor
Department has made over the years on expenditures of city
workers—what foods they bought, what clothes they wore, what
kinds of dwellings they lived in, what they spent on recreation
and transportation.
• Written for popular consumption, but contains tables and charts
that make it a valuable work of reference for businessmen, union
members, editors, teachers, students, and others.

For copies of How American Buying Habits Change, send check or money order (do not send cash) payable to the Superintendent of Documents. Mail your order to the Superintendent of Documents, Washington 25, D.C., or to any of the following Bureau of Labor Statistics Regional Offices:
