"Effective January 1, 1969, the Statistical Reporting Service plans to
discontinue calculation and publication of 5-year averages that appear
in this report. The report will contain data for the current and the
two preceding years. It is believed that changes in agriculture have
decreased the value of the five-year averages for making comparisons."
