U.S. Fresh-Market Fruit Exports, 1978-91Entry ID: USDA0347
Abstract: Data in "U.S. Fresh-Market Fruit Exports, 1978-91" pertain to
U.S. exports of fresh-market fruit to Canada and the rest of the
world. Prior to 1990, and especially during the mid-1980s, U.S.
exports to Canada, (as reported by the Census Bureau, U.S.
Department of Commerce,) were substantially understated because
of undocumented shipments. Since 1989, trade data compiled by
the Census Bureau has ... used Canadian import data to represent
U.S. exports to Canada. In order to correct for the
under-reporting, the Specialty Agriculture Branch, Commodity
Economics Division, ERS, USDA, obtained import data for
1978-1989 from Statistics Canada. The data were used to
recalculate exports and consumption estimates for 13
