Abstract : The USAF Statistical Digest (Short Title USAF SD-57) summarizes in one document the volume of statistical data collected and published by various offices in Headquarters, United States Air Force and certain major commands. It is published in accordance with AFR 5-24 and is to be used as the official basic reference document for the period and areas covered. The Fiscal Year 1957 edition is the twelfth edition of the series. Original editions - Army Air Force Statistical Digest (World War II) and supplement Number 1, 1945 were followed by AAF Statistical Digest, 1946 and USAF Statistical Digest 1947. The 1946 and 1947 editions made Air Force statistics available in summarized form, available as far back' as possible, with the exception of Combat Operations. This data is found only in the 1945 edition. The 1948 issue was the first strictly annual publication. Since 1949 each annual edition has been organized on a Fiscal Year basis. Immediately following the Table of Contents is a Major Air Command Directory, containing information which is appropriate to all data included in this issue. Definitions and general information pertaining to specific subject matter areas are found in introductory statements in each Part. Tables indicated in the headnote as New Tables are tables which were not included in the FY 56 edition of this publication. Sources of the majority of the data are the published and unpublished records of the Directorate of Statistical Services. The balance of the data was furnished by other agencies as noted in source reference data.
