unable to log upstream_bytes_sent

I'm running nginx 1.11.9, and I get an error any time I try to use
bytes_sent, upstream_bytes_sent, or upstream_bytes_received. I've tried
logging directly in a log format, or using in a map:

<in http context>

map $request_method $chad_sent {
  default $upstream_bytes_sent;

map $request_method $chad_received {
  default $upstream_bytes_received;

This results in:

me at here:~/Downloads$ sudo service nginx restart
 * Restarting nginx nginx

nginx: [emerg] unknown "upstream_bytes_sent" variable
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

It's unclear to me if there's something wrong with my build, or if I have
to use a stream context, or some other issue.
