EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


IMPORT STATISTICS

Coverage

The U.S. import statistics reflect both government and
nongovernment imports of merchandise from foreign countries
into the U.S. Customs territory, which includes the 50 States.
the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The U.S. import
statistics exclude imports into the Virgin Islands, Guam,
American Samoa. and other U.S. possessions; and shipments
between the United States and Puerto Rico, between the United
States and U.S. possessions, and between any of these outlying
areas. (Data on U.S. trade with Puerto Rico and the Virgin
Islands of the United States are published separately in Report
FT 800. Additional data on such trade and on imports into the
Virgin Islands from foreign countries are presented in reference
tabulations.) Data on imports of petroleum and selected
petroleum products, including shipments into the Virgin Islands
from foreign countries, are included in this report effective with
the January 1976 statistics (previously shown in former Report
FT 900-Supplement)
The Li S. import statistics also exclude American goods re-
turned to the United States by its Armed Forces. intransit ship-
ments through the United States when documented as such
with Customs, temporary shipments; transactions not con-
sidered to be of statistical significance. such as shipments of
personal and household effects; low-valued nondutiable im-
ports by mail: and issued monetary coins of all component
metals.

Inclusion of Gold in the Statistics

Effective with the statistics for Januars 1078, imports of
nonmonetar> gold |in such forms as ore. scrap and base bullion,
nonmoneitar refined bullion. etc.) which were previously,
excluded, are now included in the statistics Imports of silver in
these forms have been included since January 1960 Additional
information rewarding thle inclusion of gold in the t178 statistics
appears in the Januar3 197 issues of Report FT 99U and
FT 135.

General Imports/Imports For Consumption

Thile statistics on U.S. imports are presented in terms of both
"General Imports" and "Imports for Consumption General
imports are a combination of entries for immediate con-
sumption and entries into Customs bonded warehouses, and
thus generally reflect total arrivals of merchandise. Imports for
consumption are a combination of entries lor immediate
consumption and withdrawals from warehouses for con-
sumption. and thus generallN reflect the totil of the com.
modities entered into U.S. consumption channels.

Source Of Import Information

The official U.S. import statistics are compiled b\ the Bureau
of the Census from copies of the import entrr and warehouse
withdrawal forms which importers are required b\ law' to file
with Customs officials. The information as to country of origin,
net quantity, value, and commodity classification is verified by
Customs officials on entries filed for transactions valued over
$250. which are ordinarily, subject to examination for Customs


appraisement purposes. The statistical copy of the entry is
corrected if it does not accurately reflect the information
called for by the statistical requirements.

Import Valuation

F.a.s. Import Value. -The f.a.s. (free alongside ship) value
represents the transaction value of imports at the foreign port of
exportation. It is based on the purchase price, i.e.. the actual
transaction salue and generally includes all charges incurred in
placing the merchandise alongside the carrier at the port of
exportation in the country of exportation.

C.i.f. Import Value.-The c.i.f. (cost, insurance, and freight)
value represents the value of imports at the first port of entry in
the United States. It is based on the purchase price and includes
all freight, insurance, and other charges (excluding U.S. import
duties) incurred in banging the merchandise from the country
of exportation and generally placing it alongside the carrier at
the first port of entry in the United States. If the merchandise
was acquired in a transaction between related parties, the
purchase price used in derming the c.i.f. value is based on an
arm's-length equivalent transaction price, i.e., a price which
would exist between unrelated buyers and sellers.

Import Commodity Information

Import data are initially reported in terms of the commodity
classifications in the Tariff Schedules of the United States An-
notated (TSUSA). which is an official publication of the U.S.
International Trade Commission, embracing the legal text of
the Tariff Schedules of the United States together with statis-
tical annotations. The TSUSA data are rearranged and presented
in this report in terms of totals for the I-digit commodity
sections in Schedule A, Statistical Classification of Commodities
Imported Into the United States, which is based upon the
Standard International Trade Classification (SITC), Revision 2,
effective with the statistics for January 1978. Prior to January
1978, Schedule A was based upon the former SITC, Revised.

Date of Importation and Import Monthly Carryover

It is the objective of the compiling procedures to include
shipments, insofar as practicable in the slatstlics for the actual
nionih of importation (or tihe month of withdrawal in the case
of warehouse withdrawals for consumption) Prior to 1978.the
ddie of Customis official acceptance of the import entry
documents was used to determine thile statistical month in which
the shipments were included Effect ve with the January 1978
statistics, the date of importation as reported on the import
entries is being used to determine the statistical month.
However, since under the Customs "immediate-delivery" pro-
,edures importer, ma, file the import entr\ up to 10 workdays
after the dJle uf release of thile merchandise some documents
for merchandise imported during the last few days of a given
month man not be received in time for inclusion in the statistics
for Ihat month Ns a result. there is a carrover. estimated at
about 15 percent from ihe actual monih of importation to a
subsequent month In addition, processing problems te g late
filing of documents, rejection of a shipment b\ the computer
because the data fail to meet certain edit criteria established to








protect the accuracy of Ihe stadisiiLs, etc I contribute to an
additional carryover of aboul 5 percent (in terms of %aluej of
shipments from the reported month of imporldiion (or with-
drawal from warehouse) 10 d subsequent month, usudll. the
succeeding month. These limrruations should be borne in mind
when making month-to-month comparisons.

Cumulations of data over at least 4-month periods are desir-
able to identify underlying trends. Month-to-month changes in
imports, exports, and similar series often reflect primarily
irregular movements, e.g., exogenous events such as strikes,
differences in monthly carryover, etc.


Estimated Data for Imports Valued Under $251

The overall import and Schedule A Section 9 totals include
sample estimates for shipments valued under $251. Therefore,
they are subject to sampling error. estimated at less than
one-tenth of one percent for the unadjusted overall total and
about one percent for the unadjusted Schedule A Section 9
total. This means that we can have about 67 percent confidence
that the published unadjusted overall totals and the unadjusted
Schedule A Section 9 totals differ by less than one-tenth of a
percent and one percent, respectively. from the totals that
would have resulted from a complete tabulation. The statistics
on imports of petroleum and petroleum products included in
this report reflect fully compiled data and, therefore, are not
subject to sampling error.



EXPORT STATISTICS

Coverage
The export statistics reflect, in general, both government and
nongovernment exports of domestic and foreign merchandise
from the U.S. Customs territory (includes the 50 States, the
District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) to foreign countries,
whether the exportation involves a commercial transaction or
not. The statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, shipments for
economic assistance under the Foreign Assistance Act and
shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L. 480 (The
Agricultural Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as
amended) and related laws. The following are excluded from the
statistics: Shipments to U.S. Armed Forces and diplomatic
missions abroad for their own use, shipments between the
United States and Puerto Rico, between the United States and
its possessions (including the Virgin Islands), and between these
outlying areas: exports from U.S. possessions; intransit ship-
ments through the Unmted States; transactions not considered to
be of statistical importance, such as personal and household
effects; temporary exports; low-valued or non-commercial
exports by mail; and issued monetary coins of all component
metals.

Inclusion of Gold in the Statistics.

As indicated above for imports, effective with the statistics
for January 1978, exports of nonmonetary gold (in such forms
as ore, scrap and base bullon, nonmonetary refined bullion,
etc.) which were previously excluded, are included in the


statistics Exports of silver in these forms have been included
since January 1969. Additional information regarding the
inclusion of gold in the 1978 statistics appears in the January
1978 issues of Report FT 990 and FT 410.

Definition of Exports of Domestic and Foreign Merchandise

Exports of domestic merchandise include commodities which
are grown, produced, or manufactured in the UnitedStates, and
commodities of foreign origin which have been changed in the
United States from the form in which they were imported, or
which have been enhanced in value by further manufacture in
the United States. Exports of foreign merchandise consist of
commodities of foreign origin which have entered the United
States as imports and which, at the time of exportation, are in
substantially the same condition as when imported.

Source of Export Information

The official U.S. export statistics are compiled by the Bureau
of the Census primarily from copies of Shipper's Export
Declarations which are required to be filed with Customs
officials, except for Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments which are reported directly to the
Bureau of the Census by the Department of Defense and
shipments by qualified exporters who have been authorized to
submit data in the form of magnetic tape, punched cards, or
monthly Shipper's Summary Export Declarations directly to
the Bureau of the Census.

Export Valuation
F.a.s. Export Value. -The value reported in the export statistics
generally is equivalent to a f.a.s. (free alongside ship) value at
the U.S. port of export, based on the transaction price,
including inland freight, insurance and other charges incurred in
placing the merchandise alongside the carrier at the U.S. port of
exportation.

Export Commodity Information
Beginning January 1978, export commodity information
is collected in terms of the commodity classifications in the
1978 edition of Schedule B, Statistical Classification of Do-
mestic and Foreign Commodities Exported from the United
States, which is based on the framework of the classification
system in the Tariff Schedules of the United States (TSUS).
In this report, the Schedule B data are rearranged and presented
in terms of totals for the 1-digit commodity sectionsin Schedule
E, which is based upon the Standard International Trade Classi-
fication (SITC). Revision 2, effective with the statistics for
January 1978. Prior to January 1978, the export classifications
in Schedule B were based upon the organizational framework
of the former SITC, Revised.

Export Monthly Carryover
It is the objective of the compiling procedures to include
shipments, insofar as practicable, in the statistics for the actual
month of exportation. For purposes of the statistics, the month
of exportation is generally based on the date when the shipment
leaves the United States. (For vessel or air shipments it is the
date when the carrier departs or is cleared from the port of
export.) However, as indicated above for imports, because of







4
processing problems (e.g., late receipt of a document for an
end-of-month shipment, rejection of a shipment by the com-
puter because the data fail to meet certain edit criteria
established to protect the accuracy of the statistics, etc.). there
is an overall average carryover of about 2 to 3 percent (in terms
of value) of the shipments from the actual month of export.
tion to a subsequent month, usually the succeeding month
These limitations should be borne in mind when making
month-to-month comparisons.
Cumulations of data over at least 4-month periods are
desirable to identify underlying trends. Month-to-month
changes in imports, exports, and similar series often reflect
primarily irregular movements, differences in monthly
carryover, etc.

Estimated Data for Export Shipments

Effective with the March 1979 statistics, the overall export
and Schedule E section and division totals include sample esti
mates for shipments valued $501 -$1,999 to Canada and for ship-
ments valued $501-$999 to countries other than Canada. Data
for shipments valued $500 and under to all countries are also
estimated, based on established percentages of individual
country totals, and included in the Schedule E Section 9 totals
regardless of the commodity exported. It is estimated that the
unadjusted overall total is subject to a sampling error of less
than one-tenth of one percent, and the unadjusted Schedule E
section or division totals are subject to sampling errors of about
one percent. In addition, the Schedule E Section 9 total is sub-
ject to possible error in the estimated data for shipments valued
$500 and under; and the overall total, and the individual totals
for sections other than Section 9, to a more limited extent.
Such $500 and under shipments represent about 1 percent of
the total value of exports, and about 30 percent of the Schedule
E Section 9 total. Prior to the March 1979 statistics, the overall
export and Schedule E section and division totals include
sample estimates for shipments valued $251-$1,999 to Canad:i
and for shipments valued $251-$999 to countries oilier than
Canada.


SOURCES OF ERROR IN THE STATISTICS

Monthly import and export figures are subject to the
possibility of errors which may arise from sources other than
sampling errors, discussed above. Among these are errors in the
reporting and/or processing of information as to commodity
classification, value and other statistical factors, month of
inclusion (see paragraphs on import and export carryover.
above), and the undercounting of exports to Canada due to the
non-receipt of Shipper's Export Declarations. For 178..
the undercounting is estimated to be about $2 billion dollars.
In the case of imports the information as to value and
commodity classification (as well as country of origin and net
quantity) is verified by Customs officials on entries filed for
transactions valued over $250 which are ordinarily subject to
examination for Customs appraisement purposes, thus con.
siderably reducing the possibility of error. In addition, the
procedures used to compile both the import and export sta-
tistics include clerical and computer processing checks designed
to protect the accuracy of the statistics to the fullest practicable
extent.


Adjustment for Seasonal and Working-Day Variation

Monthly totals for exports and imports and major com-
modity components I Schedule E and Schedule A section totals)
are shown adjusted for seasonal/working-day variation. Effec-
Inve with the release of the January 1979 statistics, the seasonally
adjusted export and import totals represent the sum of com-
modity components adjusted for seasonal and working-day
variation. Previously, the monihl0 totals for exports and im-
ports were adjusted independently of the components. The
procedure of aggregating seasonally adjusted commodity com-
ponents more accurately reflects the seasonal movements within
the totals Under this procedure, only those section totals that
show identifiable seasonal patter:ts are seasonally adjusted.


MERCHANDISE TRADE BALANCES

Two trade balances are presented in this report"
I ) The balance between exports based on f.a.s. values and
imports based on f.a.s. values.
2) The balance between exports based on l.a.s. values and
imports based on c.i.f. values with adjustments for imports from
affiliated sellers abroad to reflect arms-length equivalent prices.
Both balances are useful for certain purposes. The first
balance corresponds to a measurement of the international
payments or credit flows resulting from merchandise trade
between the U.S. and foreign countries. The second balance is
based on concepts similar to those used by most foreign
countries, and therefore provides a reference for comparison
with the trade balances published by those countries.



REVISIONS TO THE STATISTICS

Under the revision policy adopted effective with the 197'
statistics, revisions to the monthly statistics for the current year
will be issued once a ear. i e., with the reports for June of the
following year. Thus. revisions to 1979 statistics will be issued
onlk in June 1980.
