NOTICE - Profile of U.S. Importing Companies

With the release of February 2011 statistics on April 12, 2011, the U.S. Census Bureau will introduce a Profile of U.S. Importing Companies.  The Profile will provide values and counts based on company characteristics such as employment size and industry type, and will include additional information on state of destination, country of origin, and number of trading partner countries.  The existing profile of U.S. exporting companies will be combined with the new import company profile information to create a new annual release called "A Profile of U.S. Importing and Exporting Companies".

Many exhibits have been added or modified in the new release to cover the characteristics of companies that engage in both import and export activities.  This initial combined Profile will cover data years 2008 - 2009. 

Note: Due to internal processing issues, we do not currently capture the related party field for Foreign Trade Zone imports. As a result, it is not possible to accurately calculate General Imports from related parties. Therefore, the import related party exhibits (3c and 3d) will not be made available with the upcoming release.

A Profile of U.S. Importing and Exporting Companies, 2008-2009.
