Business Summary (E. L. Burgess)

Dollar volume of business in Nebraska in March was up only 0.3% from a year ago. The U.S. dollar volume increased 4.2% from March, 1966. Physical volume increased from year-ago levels 2.9% in the U.S. and 2.4% in Nebraska. This would indicate that price increases in the United States have not been accompanied by price increases in Nebraska. Construction activity remained down from a year ago in both Nebraska (-27.4%) and the U.S. (-6.3%). Nebraska's cash farm marketings were off 1.5% from a year ago but up 28.4% from February, 1967.
