Constant-dollar inventories, sales, and inventory-sales ratios for manufacturing and trade: revised estimates, 1985:I=1988:II.

The constant-dollar inventories, sales, and inventory-sales ratios have been revised beginning with 1985 to incorporate new source data. Revised constant-dollar inventories through the first quarter of 1988 are consistent with the revised inventory estimates in the July 1988 issue of the SURVEY OF CURRENT BUSINESS. Tables 1, 2, and 3 present quarterly and monthly constant-dollar inventories, sales, and inventory-sales ratios, respectively. Table 4 presents quarterly fixed-weighted constant-dollar inventoTY-Sales ratios, i.e., ratios obtained by weighting detailed industry ratios by 1982 sales. Table 5 presents quarterly and monthly inventories for manufacturing by stage of fabrication. Quarterly constant-dollar manufacturing and trade inventories, sales, and inventory-sales ratios were published for 1976-82 in the February 1986 SURVEY, for 1983 in the September 1986 SURVEY, and for 1984 in the September 1987 SURVEY.
