TitleFreight Analysis Framework 2007 Provisional Estimates Now Available
Date Posted6/23/2008
Description The 2007 Provisional Commodity Origin-Destination Data and Documentation are now available on the Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) web site. The FAF is based primarily on data collected every five years as part of the Economic Census. Recognizing that goods movement shifts significantly during the years between each Economic Census, the Federal Highway Administration produces a provisional estimate of goods movement by origin, destination, and mode for the most recent calendar year. Files on the web site include the Provisional Commodity Origin-Destination Database 2007 in Microsoft Access format and in CSV format, as well as technical documentation.
