Annual Reports, Foreign Commerce and Navigation

In 1820, the Secretary of the Treasury was required by law to prepare annual statistical reports on commerce with foreign countries. These reports were compiled by the Register of the Treasury until 1866, when the Statistics Bureau was created. In 1903, the Statistics Bureau and the Foreign Commerce Bureau of the State Department were consolidated and moved to the Commerce and Labor Department. From there, this report jumped around from the Bureau of Statistics to the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce and then the Census Bureau:


1821-1903 T 37.1: Department of Treasury, Bureau of Statistics
1904-1912 C 14.1: Department of Commerce & Labor, Bureau of Statistics
1913-1952 C 18.19: Department of Commerce, Foreign & Domestic Commerce Bureau
1953- C 3.159: Department of Commerce, Census Bureau

(Please note that from 1866 to 1876, a brief annual report including statistics can also be found in the Annual Report of the Treasury Department, T 1.1:)   (Checklist 1166)
