The presentation by States shows that the average duration of strikes was 13.6 days in Utah and 175.5 days in Nevada. The percentage of establishments closed was 14.71 per cent in Oklahoma and 100 per cent in Nevada. The average days closed were 4.8 in Oklahoma and 175.5 in Nevada. Considering the States in which the largest number of strikes occurred, the average duration per establishment was 15.5 days in New York, 37.8 in Pennsylvania, and 23 in Illinois. The percentage of establishments closed was 63.29 per cent in New York, 65.82 per cent in Pennsylvania, and 68.03 per cent in Illinois. The average days closed were 11.9 in New York, 32.5 in Pennsylvania, and 19.1 in Illinois. That part of the table presenting the facts by geographical divisions shows that the average duration of strikes was greatest in the Western division and least in the North Atlantic division. The percentage of establishments closed was highest in the North Central division and lowest in the Western division. The average days closed were highest in the South Atlantic division and lowest in the Western division.

DURATION OF LOCKOUTS, ESTABLISHMENTS CLOSED,

AND TIME CLOSED The succeeding three tables present the average duration of lockouts per establishment, the number and per cent of establishments involved which were closed, and the average days closed per establishment. The first of the series of three tables presents these data by years, as follows:

DURATION OF LOCKOUTS, NUMBER AND PER CENT OF ESTABLISHMENTS CLOSED,

AND AVERAGE DAYS CLOSED, BY YEARS, 1881 TO 1905.

See Table XVI, pages 736 and 737, for notes relating to establishments closed permanently, establishments in which lockout was pending at the close of some one of the four investigations included in
