The statistics published in this report represent motor vehicles that were manufactured by establishments in the U.S. and were shipped domestically or exported.

Later this month, 2012 Economic Census statistics on the nation's motor vehicle dealers will be released.

For a definition of the automobile manufacturing industry, see the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) page at (336111). The page also has similar definitions for light truck and utility vehicle manufacturing (336112) and heavy duty truck manufacturing (336120).

These statistics are part of the 2012 Economic Census Industry Series, which publishes national figures for detailed industries, as well as information on the product lines sold by or services provided by businesses. These data are collected on establishments, which are typically single physical locations of a business that produce or distribute goods or perform services and can be accessed via American FactFinder.

Future 2012 Economic Census Industry Series releases will include first time information on the emerging industries of solar, wind, geothermal and biomass electric power generation. This series will be released through February 2015; for more information on these future releases, see http://www.census.gov.
