1For comparison of domestic manufacturers' shipment, export numbers, and import numbers for copper-base mill and foundry products, see table 4 in
the first quarter 1984 report, ITA9008(84)-1, issued July 1984.

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 1.0 for industry group 339 relating to copper-base powder mill
products) are based on data for 1981 which are published in Origin of Exports of Manufactured Products, M81(AS)-5, appendix B.
4Source: Bureau of the Census report IM 145-X, U.S. Imports for Consumption and General Imports.
6Represents the c.i.f. (cost, insurance, and freight) value at the first port of entry in the United States plus U.S. import duties.
7Apparent consumption is derived by subtracting exports from the total of net shipments plus imports.
This total does not include either insulated wire and cable or brass and bronze foundry products.
