EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE

The U.S. foreign trade statistics include, in general both government
and nongovernment shipments of rrerchandise and reflect the physical
rrovenent of foreign trade shipments into and out of U.S. Foreign Trade
Zones, the 11.S. Virgin Islands and the 11.S. Customs territory (includes the
5I states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico), with certain
exceptions. The statistics eKclude data on shipments between the United
States, Puerto Rico, and ii.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 Arred Forces and intransit shipments. (See
paragraph below regarding sources of further infonnrmation.1


STATISTICAL mNTH AIll PEVISEDT STATISTICAL WM1NH INFfRAmTIfN

Statistical month data reflect the compilation of import entries and
export declarations transmitted tn the Census Pureau for processing during
a monthly processing period of 211 to 22 days duration, which begins with
the 15th of the preceding month and ends with the 15th of the following
month. These record cover transactions that occurred on different dates
prior to the 15th day of the processing month (i.e. in the immediately pre-
ceding month or earlier). Revised statistical month data are recom-
pilations. iiuring the recompilation, records are grouped and totaled by
their transaction dates. Somre estimates for transactions expected to be
compiled are included in the revised statistical month data. See
APPEtNICES I and 2.


MRITHLY CARPR-OVEP

Both the import and export monthly trade totals reflect the dollar
value reported on import entries and export declarations transmitted by the
U.S. Custom Service to the Census Bureau within 15 days of the end of the
statistical moni.h. 1hile a number of factors account for import and export
carry-over, it is caused principally by late transmittal of statistical
documents to the Census Bureau. The Custom procedure which allows impor-
ters to file iriport documentation up to 10 workdays after the date of
release of the merchandise mal result in additional import carry-over.
Tocunents received too late for inclusion in the appropriate statistical
month, are carried over to the next statistical month.


E-TFH'OjLi'T,ICAL CHAifES

Recent analysis by the Census Rureau 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 front ronth to month. This requires that we
reeTphasize our cautionary statement regarding the use of monthly trade
figures particularly with respect to month-to-morth change. Users are
advised that cumulations of data over at least 4-month periods are
desirable to identify underlying trends and minimize the effect of irrequ-
lar trade -mverents 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 month-towvonth changes, bit also requires a change
in methodology designed to more accurately reflect trade for a given month.
These changes are discussed in the following sections.


RECWPILATION POLICY FOR PRIOR STATISTICAL YEAR


Actual aggregate monthly import, export, and trade balance figures wii
be recorpiled on an annual basis. We have already recmipiled a
monthly import, export and trade balance figures for 14. The.
recompiled figures were issued in 4 Appendices to the August 11985 satit
cal month report FT'O1ADV dated September 27, 1~15. The recompiled.
figures reflect the actual month of entry for imports and month of shielll
for exports.

The actual 1984 data appearing in the Appendices reflect transsate
through the June 1985 statistical month only and are available upon -"K
to the Foreign Trade Division, Bureau of the Census, Washingto,
20233. The tables show that the differences between statistical nontl
actual aggregate trade data are very small over the whole year. The act'
14B4 imports were E346.4 billion compared to W341.2 billion reported on
statistical month basis, a difference of about one and one half per1t31
Exports were $21R.7 billion compared to V17.9 billion, a difference
less than half a percent. The actual merchandise trade deficit for
year was S127.6 billion compared to 123.3 billion. There is the possiM.
lity of additional late documents being transmitted to the Census Bu..
for processing particularly for imports. The amount of carry-over vaTia
crhpiled from such documents is likely to he infinitesimal when compared toi
the previously announced actual calendar year 1984 total. For exmari,
1984 transactions processed with Septerber 1985 statistical month auxas
to less than 10.1f1r percent of the calendar year total.


PECt PILATInN POLICY FOP CURRENT STATISTICAL YEAR (Revised Statisti I
Month)

In order to provide users with monthly figures that have a substani
tially reduced amount of carry-over, we will publish revised aggreg :i.R
information in the following month. The "revised statistical month" readi -
ces the carry-over fron between 39 and 55 percent to between 6 and 18 pnl
cent for imports and from between 6 and 13 to less than 2 percent
exports. The "revised statistical month" will include data for all do$4-1
ments received within 45 days after the end of the nonth, and is calculatfl
by combining the current month value in that statistical month with *1 I
value of the carry-over included in the subsequent statistical month. F4
example, the revised statistical figure for August consists of acblolui
August transaction included in August and Septemrber statistical months plusd
a small additional carry-over from earlier months. '"i

Each month we will revise the previous statistical month's figures iri
this manner and publish the revised figures in an appendix to this report..i
For most months, it improves the numbers (brings then closer to tgar
actuals). There are exceptions and the review of I\A4 aggregates shiod id
that lioverber and Dlecember are particularly troublesome when compared with
the actuals. The problem here seem to be associated with the variabiltp;HE
of the carry-over, and by working with the U.S. Customs Service we hope ti .
reduce both the level and variability. If these efforts are not completely...
successful, it any necessitate some other revision technique for year aeni
information.

We do not know, at this tine, what the effect of the carry-over is & ;
detailed comrodity and country data. The Census Bureau is exploring publizi. 1.
cation of detailed monthly figures for the revised statistical month andjEW
for the actual month data. A final decision about publication of detailed::
figures will be based on uses of the data and cost considerations.

VALUATION OF WORTS ANl EXPORTS


EXPnPT WAi IPPOT (mf1iTY' IJFB~tTIolN


Custom Ilport Value

The Customi value reflects the value of imports as appraised by the
U.S. Customs Service in accordance with the legal requirements of the
Tariff Act of 193n, as amended (most recently by the Trade Agreements Act
of 1979). This Custors value as amended by the Trade Agreements Act of
1979, is generally defined as the price actually paid or payable for
merchandise when sold for exportation to the lUnited 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 parties, the relationship between buyer and seller should not.
influence the Custom value. In the case of overland shipments originating
in Canada only, the Custom value generally does not include costs incurred
in bringing the rrerchandise from the interior point of origin to the
Canadian border point.

C.I.F. Import Value

The c.i.f. value consists of the Customs value as defined above, plus
all freight, insurance, and other charges (excluding U.S. airport duties)
incurred in bringing the merchandise from the country Qf exportation to the
first port of arrival in the United States. Prior to January, 198??
Statistics, such costs and charges were added to the arms-length value in
order to compile the c.i.f. value. In conformity with Section yl (e) of
Title 13, United States Code, general irrmports, c.i.f. value basis, are
reported at least 48 hours in advance of general imports, Customs value
basis. Report F1T9W Advance, is the initial statistical month report.

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.


The comriodity information presented in those tables showing imports of
petroleuri andi selected petroleum products is ir sterns of the
classifications in the Tariff Schedules of the United States Annotated
(TSIISA). The rnlaininq tables present coanodity information in tentrms 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. Beverage and
tobacco; 2. Crude materials, inedible, except fuels; 3. Mineral fuels,
lubricants, and related material; 4. Oils and fats-animals and vegetable;
5. Chemicals andi related products, N.S.P.F.; 6. Manufactured goods
classified chiefly by material; 7. Machinery and transport equipment; 8.
Miscellaneous manufactured articles, N.S.P.F.; and 9. Cormndities and
transactions not classified elsewhere. Information concerning the export
and inrport cnrmnity groupings may be obtained from the Foreign Trade
Ilivision.





SOPCES nF FURTHER INFORfMATION


Additional foreign trade statistics and information garding coverage,
valuation, sampling, and qualifications which should be considered by users
of the statistics are contained primarily in the following publications:
Report FTrWi, Highlights of U.S. Export and Iriport Trade; FTI35, U.S.
General Imports, Schedule A Comedity by Country; FT410, U.S. Exports,
Schedule E Comolit, by, Country; and the Guide to Foreign Trade Statisics.
Information regarding additional sources of statistics, the methodology
used in seasonally adjusting the data, and other matters relating to
foreign trade statistics may be obtained from the Foreign Trade Division,
Bureau of the Census, Washingrtn, D.C. 20233.


SPECIAL NOrTICE


SEASnNfAL AnJUJSTMENT PI1LIC C. CHANGES

Effective with January 1086 statistical month, the import and export
merchandise trade dati will be published only on an unadiusted basis. The
policy of applying seasonal and workinq-dlay factors tn commodity com-
ponents, commodity groupings, and selected country rea roupings, for the
individual statistical months, will be discontinued. The extent of
carry-over, particularly for the import data, and the variability of the
volume of carry-over for each month's statistics obscures the true cyclical
or seasonal patterns in the data and prevents accurate seasonal and
working-day adjustment. This change in policy which permits the issuance
of unadjusted merchandise trade data on a current statistical month basis
is in line with the recently, introducte1 recompilation policy under which
revised statistical month and actual month data are being published.The
Bureau of the Census would welcome an, comments or suggestions relating to
the formats of the statistical tables used in the presentation of the trade
data shown in this release.

'Export and import statistical series are adjusted for seasonal andor working-day variation but rot for changes in price level. The
adjusted monthly export and import totals for 1984 and 1985 presented in this report are derived by adding the seasonally adjusted components
(i.e. SITC sections. The factors used to adjust the 1984 and 1985 component series represent Me combination of seasonal adjustnient factors
developed from monthly data through 1984 and the appropriate working-day factors Prior to January 1979, monthly tctals were adjusted independ-
ently of the components. Effective with January 1986 statistical month, the practice of adjusting exports and imports for seasonal and working-
day variation will be discontinued.
