NOTES: Transportation-related goods are motor vehicles and parts, aircraft and spacecraft and parts, railway vehicles and parts, and ships and boats. Data may not add to total because of independent rounding.

All dollar amounts are in current dollars. These data have not been adjusted for inflation because there is no specific deflator available for transportation-related goods. In addition, it is difficult to control for trading partners' inflation rates as well as currency exchange fluctuations when adjusting the value of internationally traded goods and services for inflation.
