Data Fix: U.S. - FT900 headlines [2016 to 2018]
Tuesday, 14 Aug 2018 16:26 ET
By Jaclyn Zylka
August 2018 -- In the Census Bureau FT900 "U.S. International Trade in Goods and Services" dataset, for the headline merchandise trade balance, exports and imports, we have corrected erroneous values (three monthly series impacted, 2016 to 2018).

During a routine quality check, we detected erroneous values for select merchandise trade series, over the interval May 2016 through June 2018. We have corrected them.

The series reside in the historical catalog (United States » Trade » Foreign Trade by Country & Area) and are:

  • XTRBTM.IUSA = Merchandise Trade Balance - Total Census Basis, (Mil. USD, NSA)
  • XTRETM.IUSA = Merchandise Exports
  • XTRITM.IUSA = Merchandise Imports

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.
