Table 5a. Export Shipment Characteristics by Commodity Group: 2007
Estimates are based on data from the 2007 Commodity Flow Survey. Because of rounding, estimates may not be additive.

KEY: S = Estimate does not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability or poor response quality. - = Zero or Less than half the unit shown; thus, it has been rounded to zero.
1 Standard Classification of Transported
2 Coefficient of Variation.
3 Estimates exclude shipments of crude petroleum (SCTG 16).
NOTES: Value-of-shipment estimates have not been adjusted for price changes. Estimated measures of sampling variability for each estimate known as coefficients of variation (CV) are also provided in these tables. More information on sampling error, confidentiality protection, nonsampling error, sample design, and definitions may be found at http://www.bts.gov/cfs.
