National total 3,760 436

KEY: SE = standard error; S = data not included because of high sampling variability or poor response quality.

NOTES: Because the state data in this table are based on information from a survey, they are subject to sampling errors that could affect the estimates of shipment size and the relative positions of the states. Because of these data uncertainties, the national total data (tons) are not the sum of state data on the table but rather the published national total (see source below). Information on measures of sampling variability for the data used in the table is available at http://www.bts.gov/.
