Decile values (1= highest) apply only to State–level data. Numbers may not sum because of rounding.

aThere are minor changes in the data for 2003–2006 due to a correction made in the consumption month from the month of tax reports to the month of sales (as the former lags the latter by one month). These changes do not have any effect on the national-level estimates.

bThere are minor changes in the data for 1997–2006 as a result of the inclusion of a small category of beer that was previously excluded. These changes do not have any effect on the national-level estimates.
