of defense (DOD) Military Assistance Program frant-Aid shsrpent s,
amounted to $17,423.? million and that general imports on a
Customs value basis, amounted to ?#h,,93.1 million.
Based on the above export and import figures, the August
merchandise trade balance was in deficit by q,F.SI1.l million.
During the first 8 months of 19g5 (Januar,-auglit), expr.rts e.r;
at an annual rate of $214,75il million or arior. I percent l]es.

during January-August were at an annual rate of 1335,204 million
or about 3 percent above tne $325,77F million calendar year
1984 total.
For the A-month period, May-August I9RS, e.pnrts averaged

2 MONTHLY CARRY-OVER

Roth the import and export monthly trade totals reflect the dollar
value reported on import entries and export declarations transmitted by the
U.S. Customs Service to the Census Bureau within 15 days of the end of the
statistical month. Carry-over reflects documents received too late for
inclusion in the appropriate statistical month.

In August, this carry-over amounted to $12.9 billion or 46.9 percent
of the August monthly unadjusted total for imports and $1.A billion or 10.8
percent for exports. In July the totals included carry-over amounting to
$11.0 billion or 38.8 percent of the July monthly unadjusted total for
imports and SI.q billion or 11.4 percent for exports.

METHODOLOGICAL CHANGES

Recent analysis by the Census Bureau designed to quantify the effect
of carry-over showed that (1) the level of carry-over is high and (2) the
carry-over has varied widely from month to month. This requires that we
reemphasize our cautionary statement regarding the use of monthly trade
figures particularly with respect to month-to-month change. Cumulations of
data over at-least 4-month periods are desirable to identify underlying
trends and minimize the effect of irregular trade movements and monthly
carry-over.

The level and volatility of the carry-over, particularly with respect
to imports, has reached a magnitude that not only necessitates greater
caution in interpreting mnonth-to-month changes, but also requires a change
in methodology designed to more accurately reflect trade for a given month.
These changes are discussed in the following sections.

RECOMPILATION POLICY

We recompiled the aqgregate monthly import, export and trade balance
figures for 1984. These figures reflect the actual month of entry for
imports and month of shipment for exports and are compiled by extracting
the value of transactions for a given month from current and subsequent
statistical months' data.

The actual 1984 data appearing in Appendices 1 and 2, reflect transac-
tions through the August 1985 statistical month. As the tables show, the
differences between statistical month and actual aggregate trade data are
very small over the whole year. The actual 1984 imports were $346.4
billion compared to S341.2 billion reported on a statistical month basis,
a difference of about one and one half percent. Exports were $218.7
billion compared to $217.9 billion, a difference of less than half a per-
cent. The actual merchandise trade deficit for the year was $127.6 billion
compared to $123.3 billion.

Actual aggregate monthly import, export, and trade balance figures
will be recompiled on an annual basis. We will issue the figures for 1985
in the summer of 1986 when complete information is available. See
Appendices 3 and 4.

REVISED STATISTICAL MONTH FIGURES

In order to provide users with monthly figures that have a substan-
tially reduced amount of carry-over, we will publish revised aggregate
information in the following month. The "revised statistical month"
reduces the carry-over from between 3Q and 55 percent to between 6 and 18









percent for imports and from between 6 and 13 to less than 2 percent for
exports. The "revised statistical month" will include data for all docu-
ments received within 45 days after the end of the month, and is calculated
by combining the current month value in that statistical month with the
value of the carry-over included in the subsequent statistical month. For
example, the revised statistical figure for July consists of actual July
transactions included in July and August statistical months plus a small
additional carry-over from earlier months.

Each month we will revise the previous statistical month's figures in
this manner. For purposes of comparison with the statistical month, we are
publishing actual and revised statistical month figures for all of 1q84 and
revised statistical month figures for January through July 1985. See
Appendices 5 and 6.

For most months, it improves the numbers (brings them closer to the
actuals). There are exceptions and the review of 1984 aggregates shows
that November and December are particularly troublesome when compared with
the actuals. The problem here seems to be associated with the variability
of the carry-over, and by working with the U.S. Customs Service we hope to
reduce both the level and variability. If these efforts are not completely
successful, it may necessitate some other revision technique for year end
information.

We do not know, at this time, what the effect of the carry-over is on
detailed commodity and country data. The Census Bureau is exploring publi-
cation of detailed monthly figures for the revised statistical month and/or
for the actual month data. A final decision about publication of detailed
figures will be based on uses of the data and cost considerations.











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 U.S. Foreign Trade Zones, 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. American goods returned to the United States by its Armed
Forces and intransit shipments. (See paragraph below regarding
sources of further information.)

Monthly Carryover

A number of factors account for import and export carryover.
Carryover is caused principally by late transmittal of statistical
documents to the Census Bureau The Customs procedure which
allows importers to file import documentation up to 10 workdays
after the date of release of the merchandise may result in addi-
tional import carryover. These limitations should be considered
when making month-to-month comparisons.

Users of the statistics are advised that cumulations of data
over at least 4-month periods are desirable to identify underly-
ing trends. Month-to-month changes in imports, exports, and
similar series may also reflect irregular movements and dif-
ferences in monthly carryover

Valuation of Imports
Customs Import Value-The Customs value reflects the value
of imports as appraised by the U.S. Customs Service in accord-
ance with the legal requirements of the Tariff Act of 1930, as
amended (most recently by the Trade Agreement Act of 1979).
This Customs value as amended by the Trade Agreements Act
of 1979, is generally defined as the price actually paid or
payable for merchandise when sold tor exportation to tne
United States, excluding U.S. import duties, freight, insurance,
and other charges incurred in bringing the merchandise to the
United States. In the case of transactions between related par-
ties, the relationship between buyer and seller should not in-
fluence the Customs value.

In the case of overland shipments originating in Canada only,
the Customs value generally does not include costs incurred in
bringing the merchandise from the interior point of origin to the
Canadian border point.


C.i.f. Import Value.-The c.i.t. value consists of the Customs
value as defined above, plus all freight, insurance, and other
charges (excluding U.S. import duties) incurred in bringing the


merchandise from the country of exportation to the first port
of arrival in the United States. Prior to January, 1982 statistics,
such costs and charges were added to the arms-length value in
order to compile the c.i.f. value.





Valuation of Exports

F.a.s. Export Value.-The value reported in the export statistics
generally is equivalent to an t.a.s. (tree 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 and Import Commodity Information

The commodity information presented in those tables show-
ing imports of petroleum and selected petroleum products is in:
terms of the classifications in the Tariff Schedules of the United:
States Annotated (TSUSA). The remaining tables present com-
modity information in terms of Schedule E and Schedule A,
both of which are based on the Standard International Trade'
Classification (SITC), Revision 2. The descriptions for Schedule
E commodity section totals and the Schedule A commodity sec-
tion totals are as follows: 0. Food and live animals; 1. Beverages
and tobacco. 2 Crude materials, inedible, except fuels; 3::
Mineral fuels, lubricants, and related material; 4. Oils and fats-i
animal and vegetable; 5. Chemicals and related products, N.S.
P.F.; 6. Manufactured goods classified chiefly by material; 7.i
Machinery and transport equipment; 8. Miscellaneous manufac-
tured articles, N.S P F.; and 9. Commodities and transactions;:
not classified elsewhere. Information concerning the export and!
import commodity groupings may be obtained from the Foreignl
Trade Division.
