The statistics in this publication are based on a surveyoT"trl"'
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 1,056 million pounds in the fourth quarter, down

10 percent from the third quarter level of 1,171 million pounds.
Copper wire mill shipments, at 530 million pounds, were down
8 percent from the third quarter. Within this group, bare wire
decreased 13 percent; insulated communication wire decreased
22 percent; and other insulated wire decreased 1 percent.
A description of the survey methodology and related informa-
tion appears in the first quarter publication issued in July 1982.

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)-6, 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.
6Apparent consumption is derived by subtracting exports from the total of net shipments plus imports.
