Table 3a. Shipment Characteristics by Distance Shipped: 2007
[Estimates are based on final data from the 2007 Commodity Flow Survey. Because of rounding, estimates may not be additive]

1 Shipments are grouped into distance categories based on
Great Circle Distance (GCD). GCD is the shortest distance between 2 points on
the surface of a sphere over the surface of that sphere.
2 Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network.
3 Coefficient of Variation.
NOTES: Value-of-shipment estimates are reported in current prices. Estimated measures of sampling variability for each estimate known as coefficients of variation (CV) are also provided in these tables. More information on sampling error, confidentiality protection, nonsampling error, sample design, and definitions may be found at http://www.bts.gov/cfs.
