Abstract : The principal purpose of this study was to make available a body of flow of funds data for a sufficiently large sample of companies to reveal the range of variations in the flow of funds in different businesses. The data have at least two possible types of use. The first is of direct concern to businessmen, especially small businessmen and theieeir counselors. This is the use of the data as a basis for comparison in evaluating the flow of funds in a given business. The study of the cement company is an example of a use of this sort. A second type of use is by research workers who may wish to study such matters as (a) the range of variations in fund flows of different companies facing somewhat similar conditions, or (b) the underlying causes which may lead to differences in the fund flow behavior of different companies, or (c) the effect of general economic conditions on the flow of funds in businesses.
