KEY:
– Represents and estimate equal to zero or less than 1 unit of measure.
S Estimate does not meet publication standards because of highly sampling variability or poor response quality.

1 SCTG codes were selected based on estimated tons without regard to sampling variability.

NOTES: "Truck" as a single mode includes shipments that were made by only private truck, only for-hire truck, or a combination of private and for-hire truck.
For purposes of this table, individual shipment data are classified as either completely "interstate" or completely "intrastate." All shipments with the state of destination different than the state of origin are classified as "interstate." All shipments having the state of origin the same as the state of destination are classified as "intrastate."
