Table 11c. Hazardous Material Shipment Characteristics by Selected Commodities: Percent of Total for 2007 and 2002
Estimates are based on data from the 2007 and 2002 Commodity Flow Surveys. Because of rounding, estimates may not be additive.
|SCTG Code 1||Commodity Description||Value (percent)||Tons (percent)||Ton-miles (percent) 2||Value Standard Error of %||Tons Standard Error of %||Ton-miles Standard Error of %|
|17||Gasoline and aviation turbine fuel||45.8||42.3||43||48.5||21.2||35.9||1.4||1.5||1.3||1.9||1.7||2.7|

KEY: S = Estimate does not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability or poor response quality. - Zero of Less than half the unit shown; thus, it has been rounded to zero.
Classification of Transported Goods.
2 Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network.
NOTES: Value-of-shipment estimates are reported in current prices. More information on sampling error, confidentiality protection, nonsampling error, sample design, and definitions may be found at http://www.bts.gov/publications/commodity_flow_survey/.
