1912 Excerpt: ... the 677 establishments reported in 1909, only 6,
or nine-tenths of 1 per cent, each had a value of products
exceeding $1,000,000. These establishments/ however, employed an
average of 4,130 wage earners, or 35.4 per cent of the total number
in all establishments, and reported 68.1 per cent of the total
value of products and 45.5 per cent of the total value added by
manufacture. The very small establishments--that is, those having a
value of products of less than $5,000--although constituting 38.6
per cent of the total number of establishments, produced only
nine-tenths of 1 per cent of the total value of products. Most of
the manufacturing was carried on in establishments which reported a
product valued at not less than $100,000. During the five years the
average value of products per establishment decreased from $173,862
to $108,230, the value added by manufacture from $66,716 to
$35,586, and the average number of wage earners from 23 to 17.
These decreases are undoubtedly caused to a great extent by the
large increase in the number of establishments employing but few
wage earners and having small value of products. The table shows
further that the, baking and printing and publishing industries in
Montana are conducted chiefly in the smaller establishments, while
the lumber and timber industry is conducted mainly in larger
establishments. In some respects; and especially from the
standpoint of conditions under which persons engaged in
manufactures work, the best classification of establishments to
bring out the feature of size is a classification according to the
number of wage earners employed. The next table shows, for 1909,
such a classification for all industries combined and for seven
important industries individually, and gives not only the number
