Since the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in January 1994, the value of cross-border freight between the United States and its North American trading partners, Canada and Mexico, has increased substantially. But nominal dollars only reflect the market value of goods and services at the time of the transaction, and are not adjusted for inflation and exchange rates. The adjusted data accessed through the below interface allows one to see a true picture of the value of goods flowing between countries over time, after stripping out the effects of inflation and exchange rates.
