Foreign Trade Statistics
There are millions of trade transactions occurring each year. These transactions are classified under approximately 8,000 different products leaving the United States. Every item that is exported is assigned a unique 10-digit identification code. Every 10-digit item is part of a series of progressively broader product categories. The 6-digit identifier is aggregated into a broader category assigned a 4-digit identifier. The 4-digit identifier is further aggregated into a broader category assigned a 2-digit identifier (Source: Department of Census).
