Federal Civil Defense Administration Annual Statistical Report for Fiscal Year 1955   [open pdf - 7MB]

"The Federal Civil Defense Administration was created by the Federal Civil Defense Act of 1950, Public Law 920-81st Congress, which was passed January 12, 1951. […] From the time FCDA was created, programs have been originated and have gone forward to discharge these responsibilities. This statistical report is designed, to show in summary form the progress made in civil defense in the United States and particularly in the programs carried on directly by FCDA. This is the first annual statistical report issued by the agency. For this reason, the reporting period for most programs covers the period from the beginning of the program to June 30, 1955. It is anticipated that similar annual reports in the future will bring the information up-to-date and include data on new programs and other aspects of civil defense. Interim quarterly and other periodical reports will provide current data on some of the programs."
