1 Prior to 2007 Standard mail volumes were inflated by about 3 billion pieces due to a double count of Detached� Address Labels in the Carrier Cost System (CCS).� Also, volumes through 2007 were understated by about 2 to 3 billion pieces in the CCS.� These CCS volumes are used as a control for survey results.
