The analysis deals mainly with the flow of funds between the various sectors in the second quarter of 1972, the latest period for which a full set of statistics is available. Comment on the third quarter is largely confined to the banking sector, external currency flow, and central government financing. The analysis is based throughout on seasonally adjusted figures. Unadjusted flows for the second quarter are given in Table H, and a seasonally adjusted matrix in Table J. Brief notes on sources, definitions and adjustments appear on page 466.
