[eng] Postal Revenue Statistics of Use to Regional Economie Forecasters - The Post Office transported 14 billion objects in 1 981 . Most of these were sent by firms. Except for the smallest, these firms use postage machines, which make it possible to know, within a short time, the amounts of postal revenues by sector of activity and by region. The figures thus collected for the period 1978-1981 were processed statistically and examined. The results obtained seem significant; it is likely that, with further development, postal revenues could be a useful tool for analyzing the state of economic activities. [fre] La poste a transporté 14 milliards d'objets en 1981. La plupart proviennent d'entreprises. A l'exception des plus petites, celles-ci utilisent des machines à affranchir, ce qui permet de disposer, dans des délais brefs, du montant des recettes postales par secteur d'activité et par région. Les chiffres ainsi recueillis pour la période 1978-1981 ont été traités statistiquement et examinés. Les résultats obtenus paraissent significatifs : il est vraisemblable que, moyennant un travail de mise au point, les recettes postales pourraient constituer un instrument utile d'analyse conjoncturelle. [spa] Las estafetas de correos al servicio de los coyunturistas regionales - Correos accarreo 14 mil millones de objetos en 1981. La mayoría de el los provienen de empresas. Exceptuando las de menor tamano, estas utilizan máquinas franqueadoras, lo cual permite disponer dentro de breves plazos del importe de los ingresos postales por sector de actividad y region. Las cantidades reunidas así con relación al periodo que mide entre 1978 y 1981 fueron procesadas estadisticamente y examinadas. Los resultados conseguidos, son al parecer significativos : es probable que mediante un trabajo de puesta a punto, las estafetas de correos podrían constituir un instrumento util de análisis coyuntural.
