Abstract In keeping with EIAs efforts to increase the timeliness of its reports, this Quarterly Coal Distribution Report is a preliminary report, based on the most current data available from EIAs various monthly, quarterly, and annual surveys of the coal industry and electric power generation industry. The final report will rely on the receipt of annual data to replace the imputed monthly data for smaller electric power plants that are excluded from the monthly filing requirement, and final data for all other respondents. The Quarterly Coal Distribution Report traces coal from the origin State to the destination State by transportation mode. The data sources beginning with the 2008 Coal Distribution Report reflect a major revision to EIA data collection surveys. The EIA-6A, Coal Distribution Report Annual, was discontinued at the end of 2007 and the new EIA-923, Power Plant Operations Report became the source of data for the electric power sector. In 2010, about 92.9 percent of the coal distributed was received by electric power plants.
