Abstract : The US Air Force Statistical Digest summarizes the great volume of statistical information collected and published by the various offices in USAF Headquarters and certain Air Force Commands. The more important data on the many activities and operations of the USAF are brought together on a uniform basis to serve as an official and basic reference manual. The 1948 Statistical Digest is the third edition in the annual Series. Original editions- Army Air Forces 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 available Air Force statistics in summarized form as far back as available, with the exception of Combat Operations. The latter data is found only in the 1945 editions. The present issue is the first strictly annual publication and historical continuity may be accomplished by referring to the previous publications. Many new tables have been added on data which has become available during the preparation of this issue. An effort has been made to cover all phases of the Air Force activities for which this publication is the official statistical yearbook.
