In preparing the data for publication, geographical distinctions were observed and separate tabulations for the employees were made for the Middle West and the East in order that working conditions in the two sections might be compared. The States included in the first division are Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin, while New York and Pennsylvania make up the second. The three main divisions of the report, therefore, are:
Part I. General survey of the industry as a whole. This section consists of a statistical survey of the entire industry based on the data obtained from employees and households without regard to geographical lines.
Part II. General survey of the industry in the Middle West.-This section is a statistical review of employees in the Middle West, together with a detailed study of a representative agricultural implement and vehicle manufacturing community.
Part III. General survey of the industry in the East. This section embraces a study of employees in the States of New York and Pennsylvania.
