UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRADE









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-
dudes 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.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.



SOURCES OF FURTHER INFORMATION


Additional foreign trade statistics and information regarding
coverage, valuation, sampling, and qualifications which should
be considered by users of the statistics are contained primarily
in the following publications: Report FT990, Highlights of U.S.
Export and Import Trade; FT 135, U.S. General Imports,
Schedule A Commodity by Country; FT 410, U.S. Exports,
Schedule E Commodity by Country; and the Guide to Foreign
Trade Statistics. Information regarding additional sources of
statistics, the methodology used in seasonally adjusting the data,
and other matters relating to foreign trade statistics may be

statistics:

1979


Exports...imports...whatever you wish to know concern-
ing foreign trade the "Guide" offers you the most
convenient way to find the facts. The foreign trade sta-
tistics program, conducted by the Bureau of the Census,
involves the compilation and dissemination of thousands
of facts relating to imports and exports of the United
States. These statistics are designed to serve the needs of
both Government and non-Government users who have
wide ranges of interests and a variety of reasons for re-
quiring information on foreign trade. The "Guide to
Foreign Trade Statistics" includes the listings of data
presented in many different arrangements and released
in the form of reports available by subscription and in re-
ports and machine tabulations, magnetic tapes, and micro-
fiche offered for public reference use. Up-to-date reports
and special tabulations listed show current plans for the
release of foreign trade statistical data through 1979.

AGE SEARCH INFORMATION
The Census Bureau can provide authorized individuals with official
transcripts of its population records from 1900 to the present that
are useful for a variety of purposes-showing age, relationship, place
of birth, citizenship, occupation, etc. This new manual explains
what an age search can or cannot do, and suggests a variety of
alternative Federal record sources. Useful to individuals,genealogists,
and organizations that need such documents.

TWENTY CENSUSES
Population and Housing Questions, 1790-1980
This volume replaces the Census Bureau's earlier Working Paper 39,
now out of print. The new edition, which is limited to existing
schedules and questionnaires open to the public as well as those
closed under the 72-year confidentiality rule, not only reproduces
each question found in every decennial census but also adds the
enumerator's instructions for the various entries. Genealogists,
historians, researchers, and other users of the manuscript censuses,
in particular, will find this information useful.
