Where do imports and exports statistics come from?

International merchandise trade statistics are compiled by the Australian Bureau of Statistics from information submitted by exporters and importers or their agents to the Australian Customs Service. These statistics represent movements of commodities imported directly from or exported to overseas destinations. Interstate trade movements are not included. International trade statistics are used extensively to monitor Australia's export and import performance and they are a key input to Australia's balance of payments and national accounts statistics.
