EXPLANATION


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 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.

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.

3. Mineral fuels, lubricants, and related material, 4. Oils and fate--animal and vegetable; 5. Chemicals and related products, N.S.P.P.: 6. Manu-
factured goods classified chiefly by material; 7. Machinery and transport equipment; 8. Miscellaneous manufactured articles, N.S.P.P.; and 9. Com-
mditea s and transactions not clasalftted elsewhere.
'Adjusted for seasonal and working-day variation using seasonal adjustment factors Introduced in January 1981. Adjustment factors have not been
applied to data for Schedule A section 0, 3, 4, and 9 due to the absence of Identiflable seasonal patterns. The monthly seasonally adjusted import
totals (f.a.a.) presented In table L represent the sm of the component totals sa shown i this table. Annual totals are not shown for seasonally
adjusted data. Unadjusted data should be used for annual totals.








General Imports of Petroleum and Selected Petroleum Products into the
U.S. Customs Area and U.S. Virgin Islands From Foreign Countries,
Unadjusted

Beginning with January 1981 statistics, monthly and cumulative-to-date data on general imports of petroleum and
selected petroleum products into the U.S. Customs area and into the U.S. Virgin Islands from foreign countries for
the period January 1980 through the current month are presented in tables 6 and 7 on the pages that follow. Current
year (1981) data are shown in table 6 and prior year (1980) data are shown in table 7.

The commodity classifications (Schedule A and TSUSA) covering petroleum products, that are effective with
January 1981 statistics are reflected in the listing of classifications below and in the tables which follow.
