This data tape includes information from surveys of commodity producers for over 150 commodities indexed by (1) fossil fuels, (2) nonferrous metals, (3) ferrous metals, and (4) nonmetallic minerals. The individual commodity surveys usually cover commodity production/consumption, modal traffic flow, mining operations, distribution statistics, shipper attributes, and commodity attributes. The update cycle varies by commodity; surveys are conducted monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and annually. The data are obtained from nonmandatory reports requested from each producer; in the case of nonrespondents, data are gotten from state mine departments, which have the statutory authority to require reports. Some of the data contained in this base can be found in the Bureau's annually published Minerals Yearbook. (See entry in this publication.)
