NOTES

Merchandise trade with Canada and Mexico is excluded from this data.

Air: Values for some airports may include a low (generally less than 2-3 percent of the total value) level of small user-fee airports located in the same regional area. In addition, due to confidentiality regulations, data for nearby individual courier operations are included in certain airport totals.

Road, rail and pipeline: Data for these modes are included in U.S. trade with Canada and U.S. trade with Mexico. Data for these modes are therefore shown in Table 6-7c.
