This study, the seventh in a series begun in the 1950s, is a detailed compendium of facts and figures on 26 of 71 raw materials generally considered critical for U.S. industrial, economic, and defense needs. The 26 are an across the board sample and not necessarily those in shortest supply. Among the materials covered in this edition are petroleum, zinc, tin, chromite, cobalt, rubber, iron ore, and manganese ore. Statistics include domestic production figures, import totals, major source countries, current status and projected needs for transoceanic and overland transport of the materials, the growth of U.S. trade, the free world energy deficit, U.S. foreign exports and jobs, and U.S. dependence on foreign carriers.
