New York, Oct. 27. Tho total nn

1018 wns 01 billion dollars, us com
pared with 31. -1 billions In 1013; but
this Increnso In dollars did not repre
sent n like Increase In production. Most
of It was due to tho rise In prices, for
the dollar of 1018 and 1010 was a much
less etliclent dollar thnn that of 1D1H,
The actual total of commodities pro
duced Increased very little, If ut all,
and n largo part of those which were
produced were war materials, not of
a kind really benefiting consumers.
Consequently, Individual Incomes,
estimated on a per capita basis, rising
from $3-10 In 1010 and $354 in 1013,
to $580 In 1018, represent more dollars
but little or no real Increase, becuuse
tho $580 of 1018 Is equivalent to only
$372 in terms of tho purchasing power

Distribution of Income.
Tho report snys that only one out
of a hundred (1 per cent) income re
ceivers In the United States In 1018
hud Incomes of $8,000 or more, and
that this one per cent hud 14 per cent
of the nutlonul Income. Five per cent,
representing Incomes above $3,200,
hud 20 per cent of the total. Ten pe
cent, Including Income above $2,300,
hud nenrly 35 per cent of the totul
the most prosperous 20 per cent, In
eluding income above $1,750, hud about
47 per cent. Eighty per cent of the
Income receivers hud Incomes below
$1,750, receiving about 03 per cent of
the total Income.
Shares of Labor and Capital.
In most of the years since 1012, the
bureau finds that In the principal or
ganized Industries, wages and salaries
were nbout 70 per cent of the total in
come; while capital (including mnn
ngement) received about 30 per cent,
out of which were puld rent, Interest
and profits; but these proportions va
rfed niuterlully with relative prosper
ity and depression. In 1010, for ex-
ample, tho share of capital Increased
to about 35 per cent, with 05 per cent
to labor, while In 1010 capital's shore
fell to u!)out 22 per cent, while lubor
got nbout 78. Of tho total payments
to employees in tho highly organized
Industries, nbout 02 per cent goes to
tho manual workers und clerical staffs.
while 8 per cent goes to ofllclnls.
Share of the Farmer. .
The farmers, who during the past
decade havo made up about 10 per
cent of the total of gainfully employed
had from 12 to 13 per cent of the nn
tlonnl Income In the yeurs between
1010 nnd 1010 Inclusive; since 1017
they hnve been receiving 10 to 17 per
cent, or n somewhat higher propor

of the executive committee In London,
a program for discussion at the con

10 total, manufacturing nbout 80 per

government about 5 per cent, mining
little more than 3 per cent, blinking
llttlo over 1 per cent. The many
miscellaneous employments, profes
sional men, retailers; Jobbers, mer
chants, domestics, etc., too numerous
to list specifically, contribute 8.1 per
cent. In other words, our highly or
ganized Industries, even If we Include
all manufacturing, mining, transporta
tion, banking, nnd government activi
ties such us education nnd road-build-
lug, produce only about hnlf of tho na

Income Tax Dlscreoancles.
Tho report estlmntcs thut the num
ber of nersons In 1018 having Incomes
over $2,000, wus 0,300,000, and that
their total Income, wus over 23 billion
dollars. Income tax returns, however,
showed only 2,008,000 persons having
over $2,000, and their total reported
ncoine wus less thun 14 billion dol
lars. This discrepancy Is duo In part
to technical evasions und straight llle
gul withholdings, but ulso In part to
the existence of tax-exempt income.
AN hut this means in terms of the In
come tax Is thut tho government re
ceived in 1018 about half a billion dol
lars less thun It would have, If nil

Contribution of Housewives.
The contribution of tho 20,000,000
Amerlcnn housewives is not Included
by the bureau in the national Income
because they are not. paid In money.
ISut the report points out that If they
were paid at the lowest possible figure
(the uverage recompense of personal
and domestic service) their addition to
tho total national Income would bo
about one-third, or 18 billions.. On
that busls, the bureau gives the follow
ing conjectural figure as to the fluctua
tion of tho housewife's contribution
to the national Income since 1000:
