The International Trade Administration in the Department of Commerce keeps an up-to-date
Web site with the easiest to access U.S. trade data. See http://tse.export.gov for their Trade Stats
Express page. Data are also provided for state exports. (Everything you might want to know about these data series, and then some, is available on the Census Bureau’s Website in their Foreign Trade section. See http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/guide/sec2.html for a complete description of data, collection methods, measurement issues, and other backgroundinformation.)
