Notes
(Cons) - "Imports for consumption." Measures the total of merchandise that has physically cleared through Customs either entering consumption channels immediately or entering after withdrawal for consumption from bonded warehouses or Foreign Trade Zones under U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) custody.
(Gen) - "General Imports." This measures all merchandise imported from foreign countries, whether such merchandise enters consumption channels immediately or is entered into bonded warehouses or Foreign Trade Zones under Customs custody.
 
Customs Value (Gen) ($US) - The value of goods imported as appraised by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. This value is generally defined as the price actually paid or payable for merchandise when sold for exportation to the U.S. It excludes U.S. import duties, freight, insurance, and other charges incurred in bringing the merchandise to the U.S. (General Imports)
Customs Value (Cons) ($US) - The value of goods imported as appraised by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Excludes freight and duties. (Imports for consumption)
Dutiable Value ($US) - The customs value of imported goods subject to duties. (Imports for consumption)
CIF Value (Gen) ($US) - The value of goods imported -- cost, insurance, and freight; excludes duties. (General Imports)
CIF Value (Cons) ($US) - The value of goods imported -- cost, insurance, and freight; excludes duties. (Imports for consumption)
Calculated Duty($US) - Estimates of calculated duty do not necessarily reflect amounts of duty paid and should, therefore, be used with caution. The inclusion in the figures of some U.S. products returned after processing and assembly abroad, for which a portion of the value is eligible for duty free consideration, may cause these duty figures to be somewhat overstated as a result. In cases where articles are dutiable at various or special rates, a dutiable value is shown but no duty is calculated. Thus, there is an understatement in the estimates of calculated duty to the extent that these situations exist.
Quantity 1 (Gen) - The physical volume of imports based on the primary quantity measurement as spelled out in the Harmonized System. Measured at the 10-digit HS level only. (General Imports)
Quantity 1 (Cons) - The physical volume of imports based on the primary quantity measurement as spelled out in the Harmonized System. Measured at the 10-digit HS level only. (Imports for consumption)

Quantity 2 (Cons) - The physical volume of imports based on the second quantity measurement. Measured at the 10-digit HS level only. Example: Fabrics are measured in square meters (first unit) as well as kilograms (second unit) of material. (Imports for consumption)
Customs Unit Value (Gen) - The average price paid per unit [Customs Value (Gen) ($US) divided by Quantity 1]. (General Imports)
