This Series Includes Private Industrial Buildings; Commercial Buildings; And Other Private Nonresidential Buildings. Buildings Are Classified According To Their Specific Function, Rather Than The Function Of Any Broader Facility Of Which They Are A Part. However, In The Case Of Most Complex Industrial Projects, It Is Not Possible To Separate Data For The Various Components. The Entire Project In These Cases Is Classified By Its Major Function. For Further Information On Definitions, Sources, And Estimation Procedures, See Introductory Notes On Bls-Commerce Dept. Series, And Lipsey & Preston, Pp. 261-262 1939-63.
