KEY: NEC = not elsewhere classified; R = revised; SCTG = Standard Classification of Transportation Goods; S = data are not published due to high sampling variability or some other problem.

a Estimates exclude shipments of crude petroleum (SCTG 16).

b Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network.

NOTE

Coverage for the 2002 Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) differs from previous surveys due to a change from the 1987 Standard Industrial Classification system to the 1997 North American Industry Classification System and other survey improvements. Therefore, data users are urged to use caution when comparing 2002 CFS estimates with estimates from prior years.
