1Beginning in 2001, includes a small amount of refuse recovery (coal recaptured from a refuse mine,
and cleaned to reduce the concentration of noncombustible materials).
7In 1949, stock change is included in "Losses and Unaccounted for."
2Waste coal (including fine coal, coal obtained from a refuse bank or slurry dam, anthracite culm,
bituminous gob, and lignite waste) consumed by the electric power and industrial sectors.  Beginning in
1989, waste coal supplied is counted as a supply-side item to balance the same amount of waste coal
included in "Consumption."
R=Revised.  P=Preliminary.  NA=Not available.  (s)=Less than 0.05 million short tons.  
3Net imports equal imports minus exports.  Minus sign indicates exports are greater than imports. Notes:  -  See Note 1, "Coal Consumption," at end of section.  -  Totals may not equal sum of
components due to independent rounding.
4Through 1972, excludes coal stocks at producers and distributors.  For 1980-2007, excludes coal
stocks in the residential and commercial sectors.

5A negative value indicates a decrease in stocks and a positive value indicates an increase. Sources:  Production:  Table 7.2.  Waste Coal Supplied:  -  1989-1997-U.S. Energy Information

for:  Calculated as the sum of production, imports, and waste coal supplied, minus exports, stock change,
and consumption.  Consumption:  Table 7.3.
6The difference between calculated coal supply and disposition, due to coal quantities lost or to data
reporting problems.
