Historical Data

1993 to 2007

During an internal audit of the American FactFinder (AFF), Census Bureau staff identified numerous problems with the tables provided for the 2002 CFS. As a result, we have decided to remove these tables from AFF. The tables released from the 2002 CFS are correct and still available in PDF and ASCII formats from the Historical Data tab on the CFS website. Additionally, some 2002 CFS estimates are available in the 2007 CFS AFF tables. The AFF table for the 2007 CFS - Geographic Area Series: Shipment Characteristics by Origin Geography by Shipment Weight: 2007 and 2002 was corrected and reposted on March 17, 2015.

Due to a processing error, the 2002 and 2007 ton-miles estimates for the All Modes category in the Shipment Characteristics by Origin Geography by Total Modal Activity table (AFF Table CF0700A02) differ slightly from the correct estimates. See table CF0700A01 for the correct US and State ton-miles estimates. Corrected 2007 estimates were included in the release of the 2012 CFS tables in December 2014. This error also affects Tables 2A and 2B in the 2002 CFS printed publication.
