COMPILATION OF DATA WAS BEGUN ON EACH WATERWAY OR HARBOR AT THE TIME NAVIGATION IMPROVE- MENTS WERE UNDERTAKEN. SUMMARIZATIONS OF THE DATA ON A NATIONAL BASIS WERE STARTED IN 1920. CURRENTLY, VESSEL OPERATORS REPORT ALL DOMESTIC FREIGHT AND PASSENGER VESSEL MOVEMENTS AND TONS OF CARGO AND NUMBER OF PASSENGERS CARRIED ORIGINS AND DESTINATIONS IN THE SEVERAL TRAFFICS' COAST, LAKE, INTERNAL, INTRAPORT, AND LOCAL. SINCE 1920, TON-MILES HAVE BEEN COMPUTED FOR ALL IMPROVED WATERWAYS AND SUMMARIZED FOR GEOGRAPHIC AREAS AND FOR THE NATION. FOR 1961, TON-MILES WERE ALSO COMPILED ON THE BASIS OF THE REGULATORY STATUS OF THE CARRIERS UNDER THE TERMS OF THE INTERSTATE COMMERCE ACT' REGULATED AND UNREGULATED. BEGINNING WITH DATA FOR 1962, TON-MILES WILL BE COMPILED ON THE BASIS OF THE REGULATORY STATUS OF THE CARRIAGE, I.E., REGULATED BY THE INTERSTATE COMMERCE COMMISSION, UNREGULATED FOR HIRE, AND PRIVATE. /AUTHOR/
