3These values were derived by use of adjustment factors to exclude freight insurance, and other charges incurred in moving goods to the port of
export. This adjustment is made to convert the values to an approximation of the producers' value of exported goods. Current adjustment factors
are based on data for 1976 which are published in "Origin of Exports of Manufacturing Establishments" M76(AS)-8, appendix A. Comparable adjustment
factors for earlier years are based on similar factors developed for 1971 and 1972. The adjustment factor for this report is .953.

5Beginning with 1978, the dollar value represents the c.i.f. (cost, insurance, and freight) value at the first port of entry in the United States
plus U.S. import duties.
6Apparent consumption is derived by subtracting exports from the total of net shipments plus imports.

DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY

Scope of Survey-This survey covers firms engaged in
manufacturing titanium ingot and mill products, including
castings.

Sampling Description-The statistics in this publication were
collected on the Bureau of Domestic Business Development
Form ITA-991,iTitanium Metal. The mailing panel for this survey
includes all known titanium ingot, mill product, and castings
producers.

Survey Error-Figures for the current month include esti-
mates for respondents whose reports were not received in time
for tabulation. Such missing figures are "imputed" from
month-to-month movements shown by reporting firms and are
generally limited to a maximum of 10 percent for any one item.
Individual items 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 actual monthly 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
unknown. The degree of uncertainty regarding the accuracy of
the data, however, increases as the percentage of imputation
increases. Figures with imputation rates above 10 percent
should be used with caution.

Revision to Previous Period Data-Statistics for previous
months may be revised due to receipt of corrected data from
respondents, including late reports for which imputations were
previously made as described above, and other corrections.
Figures which have been revised by more than 5 percent from
previously published figures are indicated by footnotes.

Seasonal Adjustment-The data are not adjusted for seasonal
variation or number of working days.

EXPLANATION OF TERMS

Net Shipments-Derived by subtracting the sum of pro-
ducers' receipts of each mill shape from the industry's gross
shipments of that shape.

Gross Shipments-Include the quantities of mill shapes con-
sumed in rolling mills in the production of fabricated products
such as forgings, etc. Also includes the quantities of mill shapes
shipped between producers.

COMPARISON OF EXPORT, IMPORT, AND
DOMESTIC OUTPUT DATA

The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system used for
domestic output and the statistical export and import com-
modity classifications were developed independently and are
based on somewhat differing systems of classification. This
results in considerable difficulty in comparing the three types of
data for many commodity areas. The domestic output classifi-


cation is based on type of industry; whereas, the export and
import classification system is more materials oriented. Aside
from the differences in the basic commodity classifications,
there are additional problems involving import data, since there
are a substantial number of imported commodities which are
not produced in the United States or which are produced only
in very small quantities and which, therefore, have no com-
parable domestic output classification. The relationships shown
in this report should be considered only as approximations,
since, in addition to those mentioned above, there are also the
following problems affecting the comparability of the three sets
of data:

a. 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.o.b. plant, after discounts and
allowances, exclusive of freight charges and excise taxes.

Exports-Valued at the point of exportation. It includes
the selling price, or cost if not sold, and inland freight,
insurance, and other charges to the export point.
Estimated producers' value of exports have also been devel-
oped. These values more closely approximate the values re-
ported for domestic output because they exclude freight, in-
surance 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

b. Duplication in Quantity and Value of Output-Because
producers' shipments of some commodities may be used as
materials for incorporation into other commodities, combina-
tions 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.

c. Low-Valued Export and Import Transactions-Commodity
information is not shown for individual imports valued under
$251. For exports, commodity information is not reported for
shipments individually valued under $251 effective October
1969 and for shipments valued under $100 prior to October
1969. This is believed to have only negligible effect on the
statistics for most commodities.

d. 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 individual five-digit product classes. Export and
import percentages at the more detailed levels might, therefore.
be slightly overstated.

e. 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.
Ordinarily, this type of discrepancy is insignificant in annual
figures.
f. "Direct" vs "Total" Commodity Export 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 relation of exports to output and imports to
apparent consumption for intermediate products is considerably
understated.

g. Used Commodities-With a few exceptions, used or rebuilt
commodities 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.

At what rate are newly constructed apartments rented or otherwise absorbed?

Find the answers in these quarterly housing reports-


"MARKET ABSORPTION OF
APARTMENTS"
- Series H-130
Because of the continuing interest in apartment con-
struction throughout the Nation, both private industry
and Government have a need for information on the
nature of the demand for rental housing. This report is
designed to provide data concerning the rate at which
non-subsidized and unfurnished privately financed units in
buildings with 5 or more units are rented (or absorbed).
The "Market Absorption of Apartments" quarterly report
provides data on the time it takes to rent new apartment
units by showing percent absorbed at 3, 6, 9, and
12-month intervals following completion of the units.
Three-month absorption rates are also presented for some
characteristics of the units, such as asking rent classes and
number of bedrooms. Beginning with the First Quarter
1976 report, data for cooperative and condominium
apartment units, such as the total completed and the
3-month absorption rate, are also provided.
The annual report provides similar data for the
geographic areas of regions of the U.S. and for inside and
outside SMSA's of the U.S. In addition, data are presented
on facilities and services offered in new rental units, such
as air conditioning and swimming pools.


"CHARACTERISTICS OF
APARTMENTS COMPLETED"
- Series H-131
This report provides data on the characteristics of
non-subsidized and privately financed apartment units in
buildings with 5 or more units completed during a
calendar year. For unfurnished units, the characteristics
include number of bedrooms, asking rent classes, and the
three-month absorption rate. Geographically, the data are
presented by regions of the U.S. and by inside and outside
SMSA's for the U.S
For furnished units, data are presented for the U.S. by
asking rent classes and number of bedrooms. For
cooperative and condominium units, data are given for the
U.S. by number of bedrooms, regions, and percent
absorbed after 3 months.
These publications are of great value to builders,
bankers, market analysts, land planners, and Government
officials trying to measure the needs for Federal, State,
and local assistance in providing better housing for
everyone.
The statistics of these reports are based on a survey
conducted by the Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department
of Commerce, for the Department of Housing and Urban
Development.

Exports-Valued at the point of exportation. It includes
the selling price, or cost if not sold, and inland freight,
insurance, and other charges to the export point.
Estimated producers' value of exports have also been devel-
oped. These values more closely approximate the values re-
ported for domestic output because they exclude freight, in-
surance 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.

b. Duplication in Quantity and Value of Output-Because
producers' shipments of some commodities may be used as
materials for incorporation into other commodities, combina-
tions 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.

c. Low-Valued Export and Import Transactions-Commodity
information is not shown for individual imports valued under
$251. For exports, commodity information is not reported for
shipments individually valued under $251 effective October
1969 and for shipments valued under $100 prior to October
1969. This is believed to have only negligible effect on the
statistics for most commodities.

d. 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 individual five-digit product classes. Export and
import percentages at the more detailed levels might, therefore.
be slightly overstated.

e. 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.
Ordinarily, this type of discrepancy is insignificant in annual
figures.
f. "Direct" vs "Total" Commodity Export 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 relation of exports to output and imports to
apparent consumption for intermediate products is considerably
understated.

g. Used Commodities-With a few exceptions, used or rebuilt
commodities 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.

tThese values were derived by use of adjustment factors to exclude freight insurance, and other charges incurred in moving goods to the port of
export. This adjustment is made to convert the values to an approximation of the producers' value of exported goods. Current adjustment factors
are based on data for 1976 which are published in "Origin of Exports of Manufacturing Establishments" M76(AS)-8, appendix A. Comparable adjustment
factors for earlier years are based on similar factors developed for 1971 and 1972. The adjustment factor for this report is .953.

plus U.S. import duties.
'Apparent consumption is derived by subtracting exports from the total of net shipments plus imports.
