'Net shipments are derived by subtracting the sum of producers' receipts of each mill shape from the industry's gross shipments of that shape.
Gross shipments include the quantities of mill shapes consumed in rolling mills in the production of fabricated products such as forgings, etc. Also
includes the quantities shipped between producers and to customers.

export This adjustment is made :o 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 current adjustment factor for this report is .953.

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 products, and castings producers.
There are 31 companies reporting on this survey.

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
producers' receipts of each mill shape from the industry's gross
shipments of that shape.

Gross Shipments-lnclude the quantities of mill shapes
consumed in rolling mills in the production of fabricated
products such as forgings, etc. Also included are the quantities
of mill shapes shipped between producers.


COMPARISON WITH THE 1977 CENSUS OF
MANUFACTURES

Effective with 1979 annual reports, some Current Indus-
trial Reports were benchmarked to the 1977 Census of
Manufactures. However, this was not possible for this survey
since the Census of Manufactures product detail does not
distinguish between shipments of titanium and other nonferrous
metals on its Report MC77-1-33D, Nonferrous Metal Mills and
Miscellaneous Primary Metal Products.


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-
fication 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.


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.

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.

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.

Manufacturers' Shipments, Not Specifiedby 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.

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.

"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.









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.

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.

a report on how the 1977
economic censuses were taken-


The History of the 1977 Eco-
nomic Censuses chronicles the
planning, data collecting, data
processing, and publication of 1977
census results. Based on memoran-
dums, interviews, specifications,
internal progress reports, and other
planning documents, this report is
a history of the latest quinquennial
censuses of the Nation's economic
activity prepared by the Census
Bureau for general distribution.
The history covers the censuses
of retail trade, wholesale trade,
service industries, construction
industries, manufactures, mineral
industries, transportation, and
women-owned businesses;
the survey of minority-owned
business enterprises and the special
survey of women-owned business
es; and the enterprise statistics
program. The introduction contains
a synopsis of census operations.
The publication is illustrated with
maps, tables, and charts. Appendixes


present specialized reference
materials, including a history of
previous economic censuses; a
roster of key Census personnel;
descriptions of geographic areas
covered and codes used; a list of
questionnaire forms and facsimiles
of selected ones; lists of published
census reports; provisions of title


'i ma

13, United States Code, relating
to the 1977 economic censuses;
principal advisory committees and
conferences on the 1977 censuses;
and a glossary of economic terms.
The 1977 history is of special
value to users of census data and to
students of survey techniques.

Other Census
Histories
This report on the 1977 economic
censuses is part of a continuing
program of histories prepared for
each major census. Those for the
1978 Census of Agriculture and the
1980 Census of Population and
Housing are currently in prepara-
tion. The various phases of the
1982 economic and agricultural
censuses are being recorded and
histories of them will be issued
after the census period ends in
1985.
