View all trade data tables

This report traditionally includes extensive U.S. trade data on a sector and country basis, as well as analysis of the major shifts in the previous year's U.S. trade. However, this year the USITC is publishing only the trade data, and is reviewing the report's content and analytical aspects to improve its utility for users (and potential users).
