Monthly Coke Supply and Disposition Survey (MCOK)

Disposition of coal coke by establishment, volume

Disposition of coal coke refers to the sum of coal coke used in blast furnaces plus coal coke used in associated works plus coal coke sold for industrial use plus coal coke sold for export plus coal coke all other sales and/or uses. Coal coke is a hard, porous product made from baking bituminous coal in ovens at high temperature. Often used as a fuel and a reducing agent in smelting iron in a blast furnace.

Establishment refers to the level at which accounting data required to measure production is available (principal inputs, revenues, salaries and wages). The establishment, as a statistical unit, is defined as the most homogeneous unit of production for which the business maintains accounting records from which it is possible to assemble all the data elements required to compile the full structure of the gross value of production (total sales or shipments, and inventories), the cost of materials and services, and labour and capital used in production.

The data for this variable are reported using the following measurements:
