This new interactive tool is so easy to use! It will be helpful for anyone researching exports of US products. Indiana grows a lot of popcorn. What are our international markets for popcorn? Let’s take a look.
Go to https://www.census.gov/library/visualizations/interactive/export-markets.html
Simply enter a keyword in the search box and wait for the site to retrieve the Schedule B Code.
Then, click on the code and wait for the site to retrieve the data on this product. There are four different views; the default is a map of the world, with the top five markets highlighted. I prefer the table view as it shows more precisely what countries are our top markets.
From this table, you can also select a country – (All) is the default – to see only further data for that market.
Click on the Methods of Transportation tab to see how our popcorn gets to these markets. Let’s see how we get popcorn to Mexico, as it could be trucked or flown or shipped:
It is all trucked!
You can also look at sales in a time series and see the unit price paid for each market.
