FT 900-79-1 Supplement For release February 27. 1979


New Methodology for Seasonally Adjusting Exports and Imports


The Bureau of Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that, effective with the release of the January 1979
statistics, the seasonally adjusted export and import totals
will represent the sum of commodity components (i.e., SITC
Section totals) adjusted for seasonal and working-day vari-
ation where appropriate. Previously, the monthly totals
for exports and imports were adjusted independent of the
components.
The new procedure of aggregating seasonally adjusted com-
modity components more accurately reflects the seasonal move-
ments within the totals. Under this procedure, only those
SITC Section totals that show identifiable seasonal patterns
are seasonally adjusted. The Bureau of the Census continued
the use of the X-U1 variant of Census Method II to obtain
adjustment factors for export/import data.
For exports, SITC Sections 4 (Oils and fate animal and veg-
etable), 9 (Commodities and transactions not classified else-
where), SITC Group 792 (Aircraft and spacecraft and the parts
thereof), and foreign merchandise (reexports) do not show an
identifiable seasonal pattern. Accordingly, under the new
procedures, seasonally adjusted total exports represent the
sum of seasonally adjusted data for SITC Sections 0 (Food
and live animals), 1 (Beverages and tobacco), 2 (Crude mate-
rials, inedible, except fuels), 3 (Mineral fuels, lubricants,
and related materials), 5 (Chemicals and related products,
n.s.p.f.), 6 (Manufactured goods classified chiefly by mate-
rial), 7 (Machinery and transport equipment, except SITC
Group 792-Aircraft and spacecraft and the parts thereof), and
8 (Miscellaneous manufactured articles, n.s.p.f.) plus unad-


justed data for Sections 4, 9, Group 792, and exports of
foreign merchandise.
For imports, SITC Sections 0 (Food and live animals), 3 (Min-
eral fuels, lubricants, and related materials), 4 (Oils and
fats animal and vegetable), and 9 (Commodities and trans-
actions not classified elsewhere) do not show an identifiable
seasonal pattern. Accordingly, under the new procedure, sea-
sonally adjusted total imports represent the sum of seasonally
adjusted data for SITC Sections 1 (Beverages and tobacco), 2
(Crude materials, inedible, except fuels), 5 (Chemicals and
related products, n.s.p.f.), 6 (Manufactured goods classified
chiefly by material), 7 (Machinery and transport equipment),
and 8 (Miscellaneous manufactured articles, n.s.p.f.) plus
unadjusted data for Sections 0, 3, 4, and 9.
Table 1 (in this release) presents a comparison of 1977 and
1978 monthly export and import totals adjusted by both
methods. Comparison of the 1977 and 1978 seasonally adjust-
ed SITC Section totals, using both methods, are shown for
exports in table 2 ana for imports in tables 3 and 3-A. The
projected combined factors which will be used to seasonally
adjust the 1979 data and the revised factors for 1977 and
1978 are shown in tables 4 and 5.
In the FT-900 for January 1979, total exports and imports
will be shown adjusted for seasonal variation using both the
"old" and "revised" methods. In addition, beginni Janu-
ary 1979, exports of foreign merchandise (reexports) will be
shown in the SITC Section tables.
