The Commerce Department's Census Bureau released the first official snapshot of "e-commerce" activities for key sectors of the U.S. economy.

The E-Stats report covers the value of goods and services sold online, whether over open networks such as the Internet or proprietary networks such as Electronic Data Interchange.

The findings cover manufacturing, merchant wholesale trade, retail trade and selected service industries.

The report is available on the Internet at http://www.census.gov/estats
