5These 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 (.9528 for industry group 335
relating to brass mill and copper wire mill products and .8318 for industry group 339 relating to copper-base powder mill products) are based on data for 1976 which
are published in "Origin of Exports of Manufacturing Establishments," M76(AS1-8, appendix A.

Apparent consumption is derived by subtracting exports from the total of net shipments plus Imports.

DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY

Scope of Survey-This survey includes firms engaged in
manufacturing copper-base mill products.

Sampling Description-The statistics in this publication were
collected on Bureau of Industrial Economics, Copper Controlled
Materials, Form ITA-9008. The mailing panel for these surveys
includes all known producers of brass mill products and
copper-base powder products, as well as those manufacturers
who produced 95 percent of wire mill products. The data for
wire mill products are inflated to represent 100 percent
coverage.

Survey Error-The quarterly figures include estimates for
respondents whose reports were not received in time for
tabulation, as well as those establishments not included in the
mailing panel. Such missing figures are "imputed" from prior
reports and/or estimates and are generally limited to a maxi-
mum of 10 percent for any one item. Individual items with
imputation greater than 10 percent are footnoted.
The imputation rate is not an explicit indicator of the
potential error in published figures. 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
quarters 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.

EXPLANATION OF TERMS

Shipments-Shipments by brass and bronze foundries include
both shipments for sale (to the trade) and shipments for own
use. Shipments for own use represent copper and copper-base
alloy castings for use by the reporting company or an ,hitliar,,
subsidiary, or parent company, and also include castings
produced and consumed at the sale location in the production
of finished products.
Shipments by brass mills, copper wire mills and copper-base
powder mills include all controlled materials orders shipped: by
the respondent for his own account, by other copper-controlled
materials producers for the respondent's account, or by the
responding company under toll arrangements for the account of
controlled materials consumers.

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' 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 .'nn... :, 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-Com-
modity information is not shown for individual imports valued
under $251. For exports, commodity information is not re-
ported for shipments individually valued under $501, effective
March 1979 and for shipments 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
f 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.

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.

RELATED REPORTS

An Annual Current Industrial Report is published in this
series. The annual report summarizes quarterly figures and
incorporates all revisions in the series for both the current and
the previous year, thus providing a single reference copy to
replace the quarterly publications.
