Table B-15a. Estimated Measures of Reliability for Hazardous Material Shipment Characteristics for Packing Group I for the United States: 2012
(Estimates are based on data from the 2012 Commodity Flow Survey)
|Coefficient of variation of number||Standard error of percent of total||Coefficient of variation of number||Standard error of percent of total||Coefficient of variation of number||Standard error of percent of total|
|Packing Group I||4.9||0.9||6.3||1.1||7.1||1.8|
(1) Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network. See “Mileage Calculations” section for additional information.
NOTES: The Introduction and appendixes give information on confidentiality protection, sampling error, nonsampling error, sample design and definitions. Links to this information on the Internet may be found at <www.census.gov/econ/cfs>.
Packing Groups I, II, and III reflect the level of hazard associated with the material being shipped. Packing Group I is the most rigorous.
