January 15, 2001,
The data for "The Facts: Accent & Area Rugs" is based on information obtained directly from producers of area rugs. Home Textiles Today augments the information from manufacturers with data from the U.S. Department of Commerce; Claritas, a market research firm headquartered in Alexandria, VA; and import data from the U.S. Customs Service, U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. International Trade Commission.
The report was compiled by director of market research Kay Anderson; editor-in-chief Jennifer Negley; senior research specialist Janice Chamberlain; product editor Andrea Lillo; and contributing editor Brent Felgner.
