The statistics in this publication are based on a survey of all
known producers of brass mill products, copper-based powder
products, and a 95 percent sample of producers of wire
mill products. The figures represent total U.S. shipments of
copper-base mill and foundry products.
Total shipments of copper-base mill and foundry products
amounted to 1,166 million pounds in the third quarter, down
10 percent from the second quarter level of 1,297 million

pounds. Copper wire mill shipments, at 575 million pounds,
were down 9 percent from the second quarter. Within this group,
bare wire decreased 21 percent; insulated communication wire
decreased 4 percent; and other insulated wire decreased 9
percent.
A description of the survey methodology and related infor-
mation appears in the first quarter publication issued in July
1982.

1A comparison of domestic manufacturers' shipments, exports, and import codes for copper-base mill products is shown in the first quarter
publication, ITA-9008(82)-I, issued July 1982.

'These 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)-6, appendix B.

'Represents the c.i.f. (cost, insurance, and freight) value at the first port of entry in the United States plus U.S. import duties.
6Apparent consumption is derived by subtracting exports from the total of net shipments plus imports.
