NOTICE TO USERS OF THE CONSTANT DOLLAR
(REAL) DATA SERIES
After further review of the real export and import statistics, found
in exhibits 10 and 11 of the September issue of the U.S. International
Trade in Goods and Services report, the Census Bureau identified a
processing error that caused incorrect deflators to be applied to
the revised data for April 2004 through September 2004. The revision
procedure for the real dollars requires compiling new deflators at
the end of each quarter and applying them to the current and previous
quarter. With the release of this notice, a new set of deflators has
been compiled and applied to the April 2004 through September 2004
seasonally adjusted data. Exhibits 10 and 11 have been recompiled
and are available at www.census.gov/trade. If you have further questions
contact the U.S. Census Bureau, Foreign Trade Division at: (301) 763-3251
or e-mail Glenn Barresse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
