KEY:
— Represents an estimate equal to zero or less than 1 unit of mea sure.
S Estimate does not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability or poor
response quality.

(1) Selected states are sorted in descending order of estimated tons without regard to sampling
variability.

NOTE: 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 confidentially protection, sampling error, nonsampling error, sample design, and
definitions. Links to this information on the Internet may be found at www.census.gov/cfs.

Coverage for the 2002 Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) differs from the previous surveys due to a
change from the 1987 Standard Industrial Classification System to the 1997 North American
Industry Classification System and other survey improvements. Therefore, data users are urged
to use caution when comparing 2002 CFS estimates with estimates from prior years.
