Monthly Wholesale Trade
Reliability of Estimates

 

 

Horizontal Rule

Estimates in published tables are based on data from the Monthly Wholesale Trade Survey, Annual Wholesale Trade Survey, and administrative records. To maintain confidentiality, no estimates are published that would disclose the operations of an individual firm. The total error of a published estimate may be considered to be comprised of sampling error and nonsampling error. Individuals who use Monthly Wholesale Trade Survey estimates to create new estimates should cite the Census Bureau as the source of only the original estimates. See also definitions and technical documentation for additional information on the Monthly Wholesale Trade Survey.
