Uranium--Supply, Inventories, and Average Prices: 1980 to 2005

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 908):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467

This dataset consists of a table of 27 rows and 28 columns.

43.70 represents 43,700,000 pounds. Years ending Dec. 31. For additional data on uranium, see Section 18. Based on a survey of all companies involved in the U.S. uranium industry; for description, see below table


  1. Data are for uranium concentrate, a yellow or brown powder obtained by the milling of uranium ore,
    processing of in situ leach mining solutions, or as a byproduct of phosphoric acid production.
  2. Import quantities through 1970 are reported for fiscal years. Prior to 1968, the Atomic Energy
    Commission was the sole purchaser of all imported U3O8. Trade data prior to 1982 were for transactions
    conducted by uranium suppliers only. For 1982 forward, transactions by uranium buyers (consumers) have
    been included. Buyer imports and exports prior to 1982 are believed to be small.
  3. Does not include any fuel rods removed from reactors and
    later reloaded into the reactor.
  4. Uranium content. Source: Nuclear Assurance Corporation, Atlanta, GA.
  5. Reprocessed fuel not included as inventory.
