(a) Data for 1979-80 onwards are not directly comparable with data for previous years because of revisions to estimating procedures to take account of inadequate documentation available for interstate imports by sea.
(b) Data for 1978-79 onwards are not directly comparable with data for previous years. From 1 July 1978 overseas export figures relate to all goods leaving Tasmania for overseas countries. Prior to that date export figures relate to only goods leaving Tasmania for overseas countries for which documents had been lodged with customs in Tasmania.
(c) In this section each vessel is recorded as an entry at the first Tasmanian port of call only; intrastate movements are excluded.
(d) Collection discontinued until 1922-23.
(e) Not collected before 1949-50.
(f) From 1966-67 not comparable with previous years; details are now confined to vessels of over 200 registered net tons engaged solely in trade.
(g) Figures no longer available, due to discontinuation of the Interstate Imports Collection.
(h) Overseas only.
(i) Deadweight tonnes used from 1984-85.
