Estimates are based on data from the 2007 and 2002 Commodity Flow Surveys. Because of rounding, estimates may not be additive.
|Export mode of transportation||Value||Tons||Value||Tons|
|Percent Change||2007 (thousands)||2002 (thousands)||Percent Change||2007 CV 1||2002 CV||Standard Error of % change||2007 CV||2002 CV||Standard Error of % change|
|Air (including truck and air)||279,987||180,265||55.3||3,671||3,441||6.7||4.5||7.5||13.5||6.2||11.2||13.7|

KEY: S = Estimate does not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability or poor response quality. - = Zero or Less than half the unit shown; thus, it has been rounded to zero.
1 Coefficient of Variation.
2 "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.
3 Estimates for pipeline exclude shipments of crude petroleum.
NOTES: Value-of-shipment estimates have not been adjusted for price changes. Estimated measures of sampling variability for each estimate known as coefficients of variation (CV) are also provided in these tables.
