Beginning Oct. 15, the newly redesigned USA Trade Online became free for all users to access.
In addition, current users will find many new data fields and functions. The change will make this Census Bureau-provided data tool an even more powerful instrument for accessing and viewing U.S. international trade data.
In honor of the second World Statistics Day, now is the time to explore the rich variety of statistics available in USA Trade Online and learn how they support this year’s World Statistics Day theme of “Better Data. Better Lives”.
How does this affect my existing account?
If you currently have an active individual account that expires after Oct. 15, then the transition will be transparent to you and your access will continue uninterrupted.
Any USA Trade Online account with an annual subscription expiring after Oct. 15 will receive a refund for any remaining balance.
Because USA Trade Online will be free to access, multi-user site license holders will need to make the following changes:
- Accounts: Create a single individual account to share among your users, or each person in your organization may create their own account. Stay tuned for further instructions by visiting the USA Trade Online website.
- Saved reports: Any saved reports on a site license account will be transitioned to the new individual account.
We are excited about being able to provide all international trade data without cost. Please be sure to visit the USA Trade Online website frequently for updates and news about this transition. You can also contact us at 1-800-549-0595, option 4, if you have any questions.
