|Export mode of transportation||Value||Tons|
|Coefficient of variation of number||Standard error of percent change||Coefficient of variation of number||Standard error of percent change|
|Air (includes truck and air)||4.4||4.5||8.2||7.7||6.2||10.1|
|Parcel, U.S. Postal Service, or courier||7.9||4.6||3.2||6.7||6.0||3.5|

NOTES: Value-of-shipments estimates have not been adjusted for price changes. Appendix B tables provide estimated measures of sampling variability. The Introduction and appendixes give information on confidentiality protection, sampling error, nonsampling error, sample design and definitions.
