    EIA revises its weekly estimates of state level coal production using Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) quarterly coal production data. After revision, EIA's state level weekly numbers summed for the quarter match the MSHA data.

    Data for September 2013 through March 2014 are revised to match MSHA. Data for April through September 2014 are preliminary EIA estimates.
