Employment in Nonmanufacturing Industries in November,

1931 'N THE following table are presented, by geographic divisions, data

for 14 groups of nonmanufacturing industries, the totals for which also appear in the summary of employment and pay-roll totals, page 1.

The retail trade group reported increased employment and pay-roll totals in November, as compared with October, in continuation of the seasonal expansion which began in September. The remaining 13 industrial groups reported decreases in both employment and earnings, with the exception of the electric-railroad and the power, light, and water groups, in which a small gain in pay-roll totals was reported,

a coupled with a falling off in number of workers. The bituminous coal-mining industry reported the smallest decrease in employment from October to November, 0.3 per cent, and the telephone and telegraph group reported a loss of 7.7 per cent. Decreases in employment ranging from 1.3 per cent to 2.9 per cent were reported in wholesale trade, power, light, and water, electric railroads, metalliferous mining, laundries, and hotels. Anthracite mining reported 3.4 per cent fewer employees in November than in the preceding month and the dyeing and cleaning and the crude petroleum producing industries reported declines of 4.4 per cent and 4.6 per cent in employment, respectively. The two largest decreases over the month interval were seasonal declines and were reported in quarrying and nonmetallic mining and in canning and preserving, quarrying reporting a loss of 8.1 per cent in employment and the canning industry showing a drop of 43.8 per cent, due to the closing of establishments upon the completion of the vegetable canning season.

Following this monthly comparison of employment and earnings in these nonmanufacturing industries will be found a tabulation showing the per cent of change in these groups over a year interval.
