Notes: Based on Appendix of Hal Higdon, The Business Healers, Random House, 1968. 1968 revenues converted to a real basis by multiplying by growth in the CPI over the time period. The CPI rose from 34.8 in 1968 to 160 in 1996. Growth rates for Big Six firms which merged computed assuming merger in 1968. Cases where revenues in 1996 were not available due to firm disappearance are noted "#NA".
