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
(0.9731 for industry group 335 relating to brass mill and copper wire mill products and 1.000 for industry group 339 relating to copper-base powder
mill products) are based on data for 1977 which are published in Origin of Exports of Manufactured Products, MC77-SR-12, appendix B.

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