The Direction of Trade Statistics (DOTS) presents the value of merchandise exports and imports as disaggregated according to a country's primary trading partners. Area and world aggregates are included in the display of trade flows between major areas of the world. Imports are reported on a cost, insurance, and freight (CIF) basis and exports are reported on a free on board (FOB) basis - with the exception of a few countries. (Missing or unavailable data has been replaced by estimates). Monthly and quarterly data are available starting from 1960 (annual data are available starting 1947).
