n FOURTH QUARTER 1981
C. ITA-9008-(81)-4
Issued April 1982


The statistics in this publication are based on a survey of _drdecrease from the third quarter level of 1,481 million
known producers of brass mill products and copper-based pounds. Copper wire mill shipments, at 628 million pounds,
powder products and a 95 percent sample of producers of wire were down 11 percent. Within this group, bare wire decreased
mill products. The figures represent total U.S. shipments of 9 percent; insulated communication wire decreased 9 percent;
copper-base mill and foundry products, and other insulated wire decreased 12 percent.
Total shipments of copper-base mill and foundry products A description of the survey methodology and related infor-
amounted to 1,306 million pounds in fourth quarter, a 12 per- nation may be found in the first quarter 1981 report for this
series, ITA-9008(81)-1, issued July 1981.

report for this series, ITA-9008(81)-2, issued in combination with the second quarter 1981 report in November 1981.

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 1980 which are published in Origin of Exports of Manufactured Products, M80(AS)-8, appendix A.
