    A separate report was issued for each State, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Each report presents general statistics on number of establishments, sales, payroll, employment, operating expenses, and inventories, for all wholesale establishments. At the State level, data also are presented separately for the following types of wholesale operation: merchant wholesalers; manufacturers' sales branches and offices; and agents, brokers, and commission merchants. Less type-of-operation detail is shown below the State level. For States, MSA's, counties, and places with 200 wholesale establishments or more, statistics are presented by kind of business. Greater kind-of-business detail is shown for larger areas. In addition, data are shown for all places with 2,500 inhabitants or more and all counties (with no kind-of-business detail). For each State, the District of Columbia, and the U.S., 1982 data are provided on sales and employees per establishment, sales and payroll per employee, payroll as a percent of operating expenses, and operation expenses and end-of-year inventories as percentages of sales. Comparative statistics showing percent changes in sales and payroll between 1977 and 1982 are also shown.
