Historical Data

This report began in 1960 and measured initially only direct exports and direct export-related employment. In 1976, the program was expanded to encompass analytically-derived estimates for supporting exports and related employment. Users should bear in mind, though, that methodological changes can affect the comparability of these data when making year-toyear comparisons. This is particularly true with respect to these preliminary estimates for 2005 forward and how they relate to previously published years.
