The schedules for 1931 and 1933 are retained in their original paper format while the schedules for 1929 and 1935 only exist on microfilm that are rapidly deteriorating. For this reason, the National Archives has been in the process of digitizing the microfilm and making them available online.

The data represent complete cross-sections of twenty-five industries in 1929, 1931, 1933, and 1935, along with identifiers which connect individual establishments across time.
