DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY

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

Survey Methodology-The statistics in this publication are
collected by mail on Bureau of the Census monthly Form
ITA-991, Titanium Metal. The panel for this survey includes all
known producers of titanium ingot, mill products, and castings,
approximately 30 companies.

Survey Error-Figures for the current month include estimates
for panel members for which reports were not received in time
for tabulation. Such missing figures are "imputed" based on
month-to-month 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 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
not precisely known but is assumed to be small. The degree of
uncertainty regarding the accuracy of the published data increase
as the percentage of imputation increases. Figures with imputa-
tion rates above 10 percent should be used with caution.


Revision 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
percent from previously published figures are indicated by
footnotes.

EXPLANATION OF TERMS

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

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


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; on the other hand, 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 com-
modities which are not produced in the United States or which
are produced only in very small quantities and which, therefore,
have no comparable domestic output classification. The
relationships shown in this report should be considered only as
approximations, 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.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.



Estimated Low-Valued Export and Import Transactions-The
import statistics include estimated value data for shipments
valued under $251, based on a 1-percent sample. Effective with
the statistics for March 1979, the lower limit of the value ranges
for estimating data for low-value export shipments has been
raised from $251 to $501. For countries other than Canada,
effective with the March 1979 statistics, data for shipments
valued $501-$999 (formerly $251-$999) are estimated based on
a 50-percent sample of such shipments. As in the past, these
estimates are combined with data for shipments valued $1,000
and over, which continue to be fully compiled. For Canada.
effective with the March 1979 statistics, shipments valued
$501-$1,999 ($251-$1,999 prior to March 1979) are estimated,
based on a 10-percent sample and are combined with fully
compiled data for shipments valued $2,000 and over. For
exports to all countries, data for shipments valued under $501
(under $251 prior to March 1979) are also estimated, based on
established percentages of individual country totals.







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.

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.
