The Census Bureau announced that, on October 15, 2015, “access to USA Trade Online will be FREE to all customers. This transition will be transparent to current users and new users can sign up for free to access data for international trade.” The instructions for depository libraries say that depositories “will no longer have IP access to UTO.”
USA Trade Online provides access to current and cumulative U.S. export and import data from multiple data sets. You can create custom reports and charts detailing international trade data at different levels. All data are updated each month with the release of the latest U.S. International Trade in Goods and Services Report.
