USITC Releases Shifts in U.S. Merchandise Trade 2022 Report in New Data-Only Format

Shifts in U.S. Merchandise Trade 2022 (Trade Shifts 2022) is now available on the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) website.

Beginning this year, the USITC, an independent, nonpartisan factfinding federal agency, is transitioning its annual Trade Shifts series of reports to a data-only format featuring tables and figures posted on the USITC website (http://www.usitc.gov). In the future, these tables and figures will be updated at regular intervals—at least annually—to reflect up-to-date U.S. government trade data.

As in past years, these data tables and figures incorporate interactive features that allow users to refine and view, as they choose, official U.S. government trade data sourced from the U.S. Census Bureau. Part I provides data pertaining to the most substantial trends in merchandise trade by industry sector and selected partner countries, and Part II provides more focused data for ten U.S. industry sectors, covering 92 percent of total U.S. merchandise trade in 2022. Each section includes a downloadable data set covering annual U.S. merchandise trade trends from 2018 through 2022.

Shifts in U.S. Merchandise Trade 2022 can be accessed at https://www.usitc.gov/research_and_analysis/tradeshifts/2022/index.
