These values were derived by use of adjustment factors to exclude freight, insurance, and other charges incurred in -movinr enods to the port of
export. This adjustment is made to convert the values to an approximation of the producers' value of exported g.oods. Current ad i tment 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 r opper-has- powder mill
products) are based on data for 1981 which are published 9 ,- ;i r. ,i r, i MS(AS)-5, appendix B.
