Toward a Quantification of the Information/Communication Industries. Publication No. 74-2.
Lavey, Warren G.
A national survey was made to collect data about the information/communication industries in the United States today. Eleven industries were studied: television, radio, telephone, telegraph, postal service, newspaper, periodical, book publishing and printing, motion pictures, computer software, and cable television. The data collection scheme used four categories: revenues and net income, employment and compensation, messages handled, and other industry descriptors. The reports on the industries are organized in three parts. First, a cover page summarizes the data in the four categories of the data scheme. Second, a section of footnotes concerning the data on the cover page is presented, consisting of references to the source of the data cited, comments on the data item, and presentations of alternative and additional data. Finally, a set of tables concludes each section and amplifies the material found elsewhere in the analysis. (JY)
