TEXAS WATERBORNE COMMERCE COMMODITY FLOW STATISTICS
This study examines the commodity mix moving through Texas ports. Data are developed on flow patterns of commodities entering and leaving Texas. Major areas on the inland waterway system which originate and terminate commodities shipped or received at Texas ports are identified. Primary commodity groups which move through Texas ports in foreign, coastwise, and internal trade are specified. A relationship between Texas waterborne commerce and employment in selected S.I.C. categories is developed in this study.
