ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

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. Business

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. Willis K. Jordan supervised

the preparation of Part II, Product Statistics.
