Beginning with the U.S. International Trade in Goods and Services: April 2013 and the accompanying U.S. International Trade in Goods and Service: Annual Revision for 2012 news releases scheduled for release on June 4, 2013, revised trade statistics will be made available for the not seasonally adjusted series for the prior three years. Currently, the not seasonally adjusted data are only revised for the previous year, while seasonal factors and deflators are revised for three years. With this update to the revision procedure, the U.S. Census Bureau will apply corrections and adjustments to the not seasonally adjusted data for the prior three years (2010-2012), consistent with the three years of revised seasonal factors and deflators. This updated revision procedure will improve the overall quality of the published trade statistics, with the potential for substantial impact on specific commodity level and other detailed Census data products. As a result of these changes, Exhibits 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 15a, 16, and 17 in the U.S. International Trade in Goods and Services: Annual Revision for 2012 release will be expanded to present three years of revised statistics. More information on changes to the revision policy and sample files of the modified exhibits are available below.
