1985. Also, the consumption of ingot in 1986 decreased 3 per- manufacturers and represents the total U.S. shipment of titanium

DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY

Scope of Survey. This survey covers companies engaged in pro-
ducing titanium ingot, mill products, and castings.

Survey Methodology. The statistics in this publication are col-
lected by mail on Bureau of the Census quarterly Form ITA991,
Titanium Metal. The panel for this survey includes all known pro-
ducers of titanium ingot, mill products, and castings, approx-
imately 48 companies.

Survey Error. Figures for the current quarter include estimates
for panel members for which reports were not received in time
for tabulation. Such missing figures are "imputed" based on
quarter-to-quarter movements shown by reporting firms. Imputa-
tion generally is limited to a maximum of 10 percent for any one
data cell. Figures with imputation rates greater than 10 percent
are footnoted.
The imputation rate is not an explicit indicator of the potential
error in published figures due to nonresponse because the ac-
tual quarterly movements for nonrespondents may or may not
closely agree with the imputed movements. The probable range
of difference between the actual and imputed figures is not
precisely known but is assumed to be small. The degree of uncer-
tainty regarding the accuracy of the published data, however, in-
creases as the percentage of imputation increases. Figures with
imputation rates above 10 percent should be used with caution.

Revisions to Previous Period Data. Data may be revised as the
result of corrected figures received from respondents or other
corrections. Figures which have been revised by more than 5 per-
cent from previously published figures are indicated by footnotes.

EXPLANATION OF TERMS

Gross Shipments of Mill Products. Represents mill shapes ship-
ped between producers plus mill shapes consumed in the pro-
duction of fabricated products such as forgings.

Net Shipments of Mill Products. Represents gross shipments less
receipts. For detail categories, net shipments also includes con-
sumption in the manufacture of other mill shapes.

Sheet and Strip Flat roll mill products with thickness less than
or equal to .187 inch.

Plate. Flat roll mill products with thickness exceeding .187 inch
and greater than 10 inches wide.

Forging and Extrusion Billet. Rounds, squares, and rectangles with
a cross-sectional area greater than or equal to 16 square inches
and width less than 5 times thickness.

Rod and Bar. Rounds greater than I inch diameter and less than
or equal to 4% inches in diameter. Squares with cross-sections
less than 16 square inches. Rectangles with widths less than


or equal to 10 inches and thickness less than 3/16 and cross-
sectional area less than 16 inches square.

Fastener Stock and Wire Rounds with diameter less than or equal
to % inch.

Extrusions (Other Than Tubing). Any product of any shape, ex-
cept pipe and tubing, produced by forcing heated metal through
a die.

Pipe and Tubing. All seamless and welded pipe and tubing.

Ingot. Includes direct casting of extrusion billet and other similar
products.

Stocks. Equal to the end of the prior period plus production and
receipts for the current period, minus consumption and
shipments.

COMPARISON OF EXPORT, IMPORT, AND
DOMESTIC OUTPUT DATA

The Standard Industrial Classification ISIC) system used for
domestic output and the statistical export and import commodity
classifications were developed independently. This results in con-
siderable difficulty in comparing the three types of data for many
commodity areas. The domestic output classification is based
on type of industry; on the other hand, the export and import
classification system is more materials oriented. Also, there are
a substantial number of imported commodities which have no
comparable domestic output classification. The relationships
shown in this report should be considered only as approxima-
tions, since, in addition to the problems mentioned above, there
are also the following problems affecting the comparability of
the three sets of data.


Valuation. There are different methods of valuation for the three
types of data:

* Domestic Output. Valued at the point of production. It includes
the net sales price, f.ob. plant, after discounts and allowances,
exclusive of freight charges and excise taxes.

* Exports. Valued at the point of exportation. It includes the sell-
ing price, or cost if not sold, and inland freight, insurance and
other charges to the export point.
Estimated producers' values of exports have also been
developed. These values more closely approximate the values
reported for domestic output because they exclude freight,
insurance, and other charges applied from the producing plant
to the export point.

* Imports. Valued at the first port of entry in the United States.
It includes c.i.f. (cost, insurance, and freight), duty, and other
charges to the import point.









Duplication in Quantity and Value of Output. Because producers'
shipments of some commodities may be used as materials for
incorporation into other commodities, combinations of data for
such commodities may contain a certain amount of duplication.
Thus, percentages of exports to output or imports to apparent
consumption (output plus imports minus exports) at four-digit
or broader levels may be understated. Where duplication is known
to be substantial, the output data are appropriately noted in the
table.

Low-Value Import and Export Transactions. Detailed commodity
information is not included for individual export shipments valued
at not more than $1,000. Generally, detailed commodity infor-
mation is not included for individual import shipments valued at
more than $1,000. For textiles and textile products, gloves,
footwear, and miscellaneous rubber and plastics products, de-
tailed commodity information is not included for individual import
shipments valued at not more than $250. This is believed to have
only negligible effects on the statistics for the bulk of the
commodities.

Manufacturers' Shipments, Not Specified by Kind. The value of
manufacturers' shipments at the four-digit industry level often
includes a small amount which is not distributed among the in-
dividual five-digit product classes. Export and import percentages
at the more detailed levels might, therefore, be slightly overstated.

Time Lag Between Output and Exports. There will be a lag
between the time a commodity is produced or shipped by the
producer and the time it is actually exported, especially when
intermediaries (wholesalers, exporters, etc.) are involved. Ordinari-
ly, this type of discrepancy is insignificant in annual figures.

'Direct" vs "Total" Commodity Exports and Imports. Export and
import data do not include materials which are incorporated into
other more finished products and exported or imported in finished
form. Thus, by showing only direct exports and imports, the rela-
tion of exports to output and imports to apparent consumption
for intermediate products is considerably understated.

Used Commodities. With a few exceptions, used or rebuilt com-
modities are classified in the same import or export codes as is
new merchandise Percentages are thus overstated to the extent
that used or rebuilt products are significant in trade.

Geographic Area of Coverage. Import and export data reflect the
movement of merchandise into and out of U.S. foreign trade
zones, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. customs terntory (in-
cludes the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico).
