a This table covers all personnel engaged in planning, collecting, editing,
tabulating, analyzing, and publishing statistics in civilian agencies of the
Federal government, including civilian agencies of the Military Departments.
It includes personnel engaged in collecting or processing operating data needed
by the agencies to guide in administration, and data compiled to serve public
purposes. It does not include personnel engaged in (a) accounting or house-
keeping operations where these are inseparable from nonstatistical regulatory or
collection operations (such as income tax returns); (b) building maintenance;
(c) mailing or printing work outside the statistical agencies, in the Govern-
ment Printing Office or the Post Office Department; (d) staff analyses of statistics
for policy making purposes in the agency, or a parent agency, and not released
for general use. Total for all civilian agencies includes full-time equivalents
of many persons doing some statistical work in time spared from other Federal
duties, but excludes part-time and intermittent Federal employees: 1,772
part-time workers were employed by the Census Bureau, 122 by the Bureau of
Labor Statistics. The Census Bureau states that the work of their 1,772 part-
time and intermittent employees averaged about 42 percent of full-time
service. On the assumption that the same ratio holds for the BLS the full-time
equivalent of the part-time force employed by the Census Bureau and the
BLS would be 795.
b Civilian employees in the Executive Branch of the Federal government ex-
cluding the Departments of the Army (except Corps of Engineers), Navy, and
Air Force in fiscal 1947-48 numbered 1,200,000; employees of the collection,
analytical, administrative, regulatory, and coordinating agencies included in
this table numbered 500,123. Employees engaged in statistical and research
activities in agencies not listed here are negligible.
