Notes Data include arsenic metal, and the arsenic content of arsenic compounds such as trioxide (white arsenic), sulfides (mostly ore); calcium, lead, and sodium arsenic imports to the United States, excluding these compounds, arsenic green, arsenic purple, and sheep dip. Contained arsenic is calculated using the percentage of arsenic in each compound, when compounds are combined the average arsenic grade is used. Data are totaled on an annual basis. Data are from the MR and the MYB. Data are for unmanufactured asbestos material imported into the United States. Data are from the MR and the MYB. Import data are not available prior to 1909. Import data for the years 1924–2004 were recorded from the MR and the MYB, and represent the total quantity of natural and synthetic industrial diamond materials that were imported into the United States for consumption purposes. Import data for the years 1900–23 were not available. Import data reported in the MYB are the amounts of refined copper imported into the United States in various shapes and forms. Import data exclude all semifabricated and manufactured copper products. Imports for the years 1900–33 are general imports. Imports for the years 1934–79 include copper imported for immediate consumption plus material entering the country under bond and are comparable to general imports. The 1981 MYB started reporting imports for consumption in the “U.S. imports for consumption of unmanufactured copper, by country” table. Gold imports include bullion, concentrates, doré, ore, and scrap, but exclude all monetary gold. Import data were reported in the MR for the years 1908–31 from statistics furnished by the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce. Gold import data, reported in dollar amounts, were divided by the official gold price to arrive at the amount of troy ounces imported. Reporting continued in the MYB in the same format for the years 1932–48. The official troy ounce gold prices used for the conversion were set by the U.S. Congress at $20.67 for the years 1900–32, $25.56 for 1933, $34.95 for 1934, and $35.00 for the years 1935–70. Starting with the 1949 MYB, data were reported in troy ounces and value. Imports of pig iron into the United States are recorded from the MYB and the MR for the years 1900–03 and 1908–2004. Import data were not available for the years 1904–08. Import data for the years 1908–2004 represent the recoverable silver content in imported silver bullion. Data were recorded from the MR and the MYB.
