BEA-TO-BEA BULK COMMODITY FLOW TAPE
The tapes project flows of 19 commodity groups between 171 BEA economic areas by 6 modes from a base year (1972) to 1975, 1980, and 1990. The projections are based on OBERS Series E projections of regional economic activity. The interregional flows of commodities are divided into two major groups: Bulk, and processed/manufactured. The bulk commodity grouping accounts for 80% of the intercity tonnage carried by rail, water, and pipeline. The base year bulk commodity flow data base was developed under contract by Jack Faucett Associates. BEA-to-BEA commodity flows by mode have been extracted from a variety of sources.
