Scope and Content Note

Manuscript worksheets, mockups, and proofs provide statistics and trends in wages, hours, and employment practices in industries studied by the Commission. These were prepared for, and most were published in, either the Third Report of the Factory Investigating Commission (1914) or the Fourth Report of the Factory Investigating Commission (1915).

The series contains: some of the charts, graphs, and tables published in Appendix I (confectionery industry) and Appendix II (paper box industry) of the Third Report; proofs of all but two (p. 112 and p. 412) of the "plates" published throughout Volume II of the Fourth Report concerning the mercantile, shirt, paper box, confectionery, and millinery industries; some of the charts, graphs, and tables published in section II, "Mercantile Establishments," in Volume II of the Fourth Report; charts, graphs, and tables similar to some of those in section III, "The Shirt Industry," in Volume II of the Fourth Report--these are probably preliminary versions which were updated prior to publication: lines on the graphs, statistics in the tables, and in a few cases the format of the tables, differ in the published versions; mockups of Charts I-XVII (except for IV and XV) published in section X, "The Relation of Irregular Employment to the Living Wage for Women", in Volume II of the Fourth Report; and tables 53-228 (p. 757-1030) of the statistical tables published in Volume III (Appendix V) of the Fourth Report.
