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 Industrial Economics Form ITA-991,
Titanium 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 js
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 include 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 classi-


fiction 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' 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.

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 $501 effective
March 1979 and for shipments valued under $251 prior to
March 1979. 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 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 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.

h. Geographic Area of Coverage-Import and export data
reflect the movement of merchandise into and out of the U.S.
customs territory (the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and
Puerto Rico). They do not include movements between the
United States and its possessions. Domestic output (shipments)
data exclude Puerto Rico and other outlying areas.
