The data for U.S. International Trade in Goods are compiled in terms of commodity classification, quantities, values, shipping weights, method of transportation (air or vessel), state of (movement) origin, customs district, customs port, country of destination, and whether contents are domestic goods or re-exports. For Monthly Wholesale Trade and Monthly Retail Trade, entities provide data on dollar values of merchant wholesale end-of-month inventories and retail end-of-month inventories respectively.
