Supplementary notes

Goods are Merchandise, supplies, raw materials, and products or any other item identified by a Harmonized System (HS) code.

Seasonal adjustment is a statistical method for removing the seasonal component of a time series used when analyzing non-seasonal trends. Whereas, not-seasonally-adjusted reflects the actual current data. It is normal to report not-seasonally-adjusted data for current unemployment rates. Seasonally adjusted data may be used for the longer term comparison.
