1. This table shows export destinations receiving at least 5% of the total exports for the top 33    
export commodities, and for an additional 8 commodities for which California accounts for over    
85% of U.S. exports, or for which reliable export data was available. For each of the 9      
commodities that are not included here, California accounts for less than 25% of U.S.      
exports, making it difficult to estimate export destinations with available data sources.      
           
2. For commodities for which California produces 85% or greater of U.S. exports, percentages were    
equal to national percentages in each country.          
           
3. For commodities for which California produces less than 85% of U.S. exports, the principle sources    
for destination percentages were California port data and Canadian import data. However, California    
port data may not accurately reflect export destinations for some products produced in California.    
In those cases adjustments were made using industry information.
