This report presents data from the 2002 Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) on hazardous material shipment characteristics. The U.S. Department of Transportation defines hazardous materials as belonging to one of nine hazard classes: explosives, gases, flammable liquids, flammable solids, oxidizers and organic peroxides, toxic materials and infectious substances, radioactive materials, corrosive materials, and miscellaneous dangerous goods.

The 2002 CFS is undertaken through a partnership between the U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Department of Commerce, and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), U.S. Department of Transportation. This survey produces data on the movement of goods in the United States. It provides information on commodities shipped, their value, weight, and mode of transportation, as well as the origin and destination of shipments of manufacturing, mining, wholesale, and select retail establishments. The data from the CFS are used by public policy analysts and for transportation planning and decision making to assess the demand for transportation facilities and services, energy use, and safety risk and environmental concerns. The CFS was last conducted in 1997.
