Central Statistical Board

I request the head of the industrial statistics department to let me have the following data as soon as possible:

1) what data are coming in to the department of current industrial statistics and how often;

2) from how many big establishments;

3) the percentage (even if only a rough one) of correct reports and short statements coming in;

4) for which recent months there are satisfactory data;

5) when can I have the shortest abstract of the latest data relating only to the main branches of industry;

6) are the few very big establishments brought together under a separate head, if they are, how many are there of them and what data are available on them.

V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, Council of Labour and Defence
