    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 November 2013 through June 2014 are revised to match MSHA. Data for July through November 2014 are preliminary EIA estimates.
