NA Not available.
1 Includes man-made fiber top converted from tow without combing. A number of companies were added for 1990 based on information in the 1987 Census of Manufactures. Data were received from these companies for 1990; therefore, the information shown for years prior to 1990 may not be directly comparable. These changes represent approximately 20 percent of the total fibers consumed on the woolen system and worsted combing.
2 Data are shown on a scoured basis for greasy wool.
3 Shorn and pulled wool of sheep excludes raw wool consumed in cotton system spinning to avoid disclosing figures for individual companies.
4 Includes reprocessed and reused wool, mohair, alpaca, vicuna, and other specialty fibers as well as tops and noils consumed in woolen spinning and mohair consumed in worsted combing. Does not include wool tops consumed in cotton system spinning.

* SHEETS, PILLOWCASES, AND TOWELS

PURPOSE

To provide detailed data on production and shipments of sheets, pillowcases, and towels. The United States Code, Title 13, authorizes this survey and provides for voluntary quarterly and mandatory annual responses. The American Textile Manufacturers Institute funds the collection of supplemental detailed information such as thread count and size breakouts.

COVERAGE

All companies that produce sheets, pillowcases, and towels in the U.S. (most but not all are partially in SIC 2392). In 1993, the value of shipments of sheets was over $1 billion.

CONTENT

Data are collected for over 50 types of products. Data include production, quantity and value of shipments, and inventories by type of fabric, size, end use and method of distribution.

FREQUENCY

Quarterly and annually; reported data are for activities taking place during the applicable reporting period. Data on sheets, pillowcases, and towels have been collected since 1960.

METHODS

A mail-out/mail-back survey of all 45 known manufacturers; annual reports are required from those companies that do not report monthly. Companies were identified from the latest census of manufactures and are contacted using form MQ23X. Quarterly data may be revised if firms later provide corrected data or return the annual report. Annual figures are compared with the data from the annual survey of manufactures to reconcile any differences between the two series.
