United States Foreign Trade Highlights

"This report provides data on U.S. international trade in goods and services. Emphasis is on goods trade: aggregate exports and imports, U.S. commodity and country/regional trade balances, and shifts in the commodity composition of U.S. exports and imports with major trading partners and regions. This report is the only U.S. Department of Commerce publication that provides detailed commodity data for exports and imports that are consistent over time.

Aggregate data on international trade in goods are presented on a Balance of Payments (BOP) basis, a Census basis and a National Income and Products Accounts (NIPA) basis, while data on trade in services are presented on a BOP basis and a NIPA basis. The BOP basis provides a more complete view of U.S. international trade, and addresses the increased focus on services trade by policymakers and analysts. U.S. international trade on a NIPA basis is presented for informational and comparative purposes. Detailed country and commodity data are presented on a Census basis -- the only basis compiled at a detailed level."
