The U.S. Census Bureau has released the 2012 Manufacturing and International Trade Report (MITR). This new annual report contains manufacturing data on the value of product shipments. The data are published on a North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) basis from the 2012 Economic Census Industry Series. The MITR also includes official U.S. export and import merchandise trade statistics.
The MITR will, for the first time, provide a comprehensive comparison between detailed manufacturing product class data and associated import and export data.
