EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


Coverage

The U.S. foreign trade statistics include, in general, both
government and nongovernment shipments of merchandise
and reflect the physical movement of foreign trade shipments
into and out of the U.S. Customs territory (includes the 50
States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico), with certain
exceptions. The statistics exclude data on shipments between
the United States, Puerto Rico, and U.S. possessions, between
U.S. possessions and foreign countries, shipments to U.S. Armed
Forces and diplomatic missions abroad for their own use and
American goods returned to the United States by its Armed
Forces, intransit shipments, etc. (See paragraph below regarding
sources of further information.)
Users of the statistics are advised that cumulations of data
over at least 4-month periods are desirable to identify under.
lying trends. Month-to-month changes in imports, exports, and
similar series often reflect primarily irregular movements,
differences in monthly carryover, etc.

Valuation of Imports

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 in-
cludes all freight, insurance, and other charges (excluding U.S.
import duties) incurred in bringing 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 bPtween related
parties, the purchase price used in deriving 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.


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 value' and generally includes all charges incurred in
placing the merchandise alongside the carrier at the port of
exportation in the country of exportation.


Valuation of Exports

F.a.s. Export Value.-The value reported in the export statistics
generally is equivalent to an 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.

Additional foreign trade statistics and information regarding '
coverage, valuation, sampling, and qualifications which should
be considered by users of the statistics are contained primarily 4

Export and Import Trade; FT 135, U.S. General Imports,
Schedule A Commodity by Country, FT 410, U.S. Exports,
