5. For the latest month, values for crude oil and some other petroleum products are calculated from estimated prices.
6. Commodities and transactions not classified elsewhere in SITC.
7. Totals may not match merchandise trade totals as some commodities (eg monetary gold) are excluded from SITC.
8. Excluding food and fuel manufactures.

1. Exports are valued fob (free on board – the value of goods at New Zealand ports before export, in New Zealand dollars) and include re-exports.
2. Figures are calculated on unrounded data.
3. Seasonally adjusted values, particularly for the latest periods, are subject to revision each month.
4. Seasonally adjusted values exclude estimated seasonal fluctuations, but include short-term irregular movements.
5. This series is not seasonally adjusted. This is because it does not have stable seasonality. Statistics for the latest three months are provisional.

1. Imports are valued cif (cost, including insurance and freight to New Zealand). All values are in New Zealand dollars.
2. Figures are calculated on unrounded data.
3. Seasonally adjusted values, particularly for the latest periods, are subject to revision each month.
4. Seasonally adjusted values exclude estimated seasonal fluctuations, but include short-term irregular movements.
5. This series is not seasonally adjusted. This is because it does not have stable seasonality. Statistics for the latest three months are provisional.

1. Exports are valued fob (free on board – the value of goods at New Zealand ports before export, in New Zealand dollars) and include re-exports.
2. Figures are calculated on unrounded data.
3. Values, particularly for the latest periods, are subject to revision each month.
4. Trend values exclude estimated seasonal fluctuations and short-term irregular movements.
5. Trend estimates are not calculated for this series because it does not have stable seasonality. Statistics for the latest three months are provisional.

1. Values, particularly for the latest periods, are subject to revision each month.
2. Trend values exclude estimated seasonal fluctuations and short-term irregular movements.
3. This quantity series is not directly comparable to the equivalent value series in table 14. See 'HS codes' in the tables for differences.
4. Trend estimates are not calculated for this series because it does not have stable seasonality. Statistics for the latest three months are provisional.
5. There is no single, consistent, unit of quantity available for this category.

2. Figures are calculated on unrounded data.

4. Trend values exclude estimated seasonal fluctuations and short-term irregular movements.
5. Trend estimates are not calculated for this series because it does not have stable seasonality. Statistics for the latest three months are provisional.
