Notice: Changes to U.S. trade with Puerto Rico and U.S. possessions data

Beginning with the January 2010 statistics scheduled for release on March 13, 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau will modify trade with U.S. possessions data products to accommodate changing technology and data user demand. The Trade with U.S. Possessions monthly ASCII data file will be updated to include additional data elements currently contained in the EM595 and IM195 hard copy publications. The EM595 and IM195 will be discontinued after the December 2009 statistics are released on February 10, 2010, and all U.S. Possessions data will be available in the updated ASCII data product. The data structure and a test file for the new ASCII product can be found on our website. The FT895 U.S. Trade with Puerto Rico and U.S. Possessions will continue to be published in its current format.
