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. Virgin Islands and 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, 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 ship-
ments, 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 between 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.. (free alongside ship) value
reptesehs the transaction value pf imports at the foreign port
of expotation;.llt is based'bn 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
exporlAiop 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.
