[Estimates are based on data from the 2002 and 1997 Commodity Flow Surveys. Because of rounding, estimates may not be additive]
|Description||Value (percent)||Tons (percent)||Ton– miles (percent)|
|Packing Group I||26.9||28.9||26.3||28.0||24.5||24.8|
– Represents an estimate equal to zero or less than 1 unit of measure.
