r ,nIwq/J


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that during November 1974, seasonally
adjusted exports, excluding Department of Defense
(DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments,
amounted to $9,061.5 million' 2 and that seasonally
adjusted general imports (Customs value basss) amounted
to $9,174.5 million.' Comparable seasonally adjusted
totals for October were $8.664.5 million for exports
and $8,635.1 million for imports.

The Bureau, part of the Department's Social and
Ueonomic Statistics Administration ISESAI. noted Ilat.
based on the above seasonally adjusted figures a
merchandise trade deficit of $113.0 million was
recordedd for November.' For the 11-month period,
January to November 1974, the merchandise trade deficit
amounted to $2,431.4 million.

Seasonally adjusted imports on a c.i.f. (cost.
insurance, and freight) value basis for November
Samounted to $9,770.5 million.' a The November
merchandisee trade balance computed by substituting
the c.i.f. Import value for the regular (Customs)
import value and using the same export value, which
is on a f.a.s. (free alongside ship) U.S. port-oi-
expottation basis, would result in a deficit of
$~T0.0 million.t' a

The November seasonally adjusted export total is
the highest on record, exceeding the previous ig;.
(.October 1974) by $397.0 million. The November sea-
sosially adjusted import total LCustoms value basis is
the highest such total reported since August 1974.

During the 11-month period (January-November 1974).
seasonally adjusted exports were at an annual rate of


$97.418 million, or about 38 percent above the calendar
year 1973 total of $70.R23 million. Seasonally adjusted
imports ICustoms value basisl during tne same period,
were at an annual rate of $100,071 million. or auout 44
percent more than the calendar year 1973 total of
$69,476 million. During the 4-month period, August to
November 1974, seasonally adjusted exports averaged
$8.595.6 million per month, a level about 6 percent
abnoe the $8.131.9 million average reported for the
preceding 4-month period. April to July 1974. General
Imports ICustoms value oasisi averaged $8,957.7 million
for tne current 4-month period, about 5 percent above
the $8,549.0 million average recorded for the previous
4 months.

Seasonally adjusted and unadjusted export and
import totals for selected Schedule B and A commodity
sections and divisions are shown in table 4, "U.S.
Exports of Domestic Merchandise--Scnedule B Sections
and Selected Divisions (f.a.s. value baslal;" table 5A,
"U.S. General Imports--Scnedule A Sections (Customs
value tbais);" and table 5B, "U.S. General Imports--
Schedule A Sections ic.i.f. value basisl." Comir.odity
components for exports exclude foreign merchandise, but
include data on DOD Military Assistance Program Grant-
Aid shipmentE.

Exports unadjusted for seasonal change and exclud-
inc Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments
Increased fror $R,926.2 million in Octooer to $9.343.3
million in November. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included. November exports were
valued at $9,397.5 million 3a compared to $6,994.1 mil-
lion in October. Unadjusted general Imports (Customs
value baissj amounted to $8.975.4 million in November
and 19.196.0 million In October.

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


Import Statistics

General Imports/Imports for Consumption

The olTfficial U S. import tlaistic s are compiled by the
Bureaul of tIll ( ensus from LOpIes ol tihe import entri and
warehouse withdrawal forms wliii importers are required
by law to file sitll Customs officials The statistiLs are
presented in terms of both "'General Imports" and "Imports
for Consumption Gcneral imports are a combinlaion of
entries for immediate consumption and entries into Customs
bonded warehuuses and Iliu-, generally reflect total arrivals
of merchandise Imports for consumption are a combination
of entries for immedialt consumption and u'lrhdrawals from
warehouses for consumption and thus generally rellect the
total of the ommodilies enicred into U S Lonsumplion
channels.
Import Valuation'

Cuslums Import Value
The valuI ofi Imporls as appraised by the U S Customs
ServiLe in JLcorddiLe I itll the legal requirements of
Sections 402 and 402a of lie Tariff Act of 1930. as
amended. is referred lu Js the Customs value It may he
based on hle Ioreign market value. export value con-
structed value. Amenicn selling price etc. It generally
represents Ja value in the foreign country. and therefore
excludes U S import duties freight insurance. and other
charges incurred iin bringing the merchandise to the United
Stlaes This valualion is primarill used for collection of
import duties and Irequently does not reflect the actual
transacllon value

CIF Import Value
The c f value represents ilt alue of imports al the first
port of entry in the United States II is based on the
purchase price and includes all freight. insurance, and other
charges (excluding U S import dullest incurred in banging
the merchandise trom the country of cxportation and
generally placing II alongside Ihe carrier at the first port of
entry in the United States If the merchandise was acquired
in a Iransiltion between related parties, the purchase price
used in deriving the c.i f value is based on an arm's-length
equivalent transaction price. e a pnce which would exist
belteen unrelated buyers and sellers.

Import Monthly Carryover

II is the objective of the compiling procedures to include
shipments. insofar as practicable, in the statistics for the
actual month of importation. However. for purposes of the
statistics the month of importation is based on the date of
the import entry or warehouse withdrawal document. This
may not in all cases correspond to the actual month of
importation. (For example. under the Customs
"immediate-dellvery" procedures. Importers may file the
import entry up to 10 workdays after the actual dale of
importation.) Also. because of processing problems (e.g..

Values have nl heen adjusted for changes in pnce level


late receipt of a document for an end-of-month shipment,
rejection of a shipment by the computer because the data fail
to meet certain edit criteria established to protect the
accuracy of Ihe statistics. etc.), there is an overall average
carryover of about 7 percent (in terms of value) of the
shipments from the reported month of importation (based
on the date of the import entry or warehouse withdrawal
document) to a subsequent month, usually the succeeding
monlh. In addition, as a result of the aforementioned
Customs "immediate-delivery" procedures, there is a further
carryover of presently unknown magnitude from the actual
month of importation to a subsequent month. These
limitations should be borne in mind when making
month-to-month comparisons.

Cumulations of data over at least 4-month periods are
desirable to identify underlying trends. Month-to-month
changes in imports, exports, and similar series often reflect
pnmanly irregular movements, differences in monthly
carryover, elc.

Export Statistics

Exports of Domestic/Foreign Merchandise
The official U.S. export statistics are compiled by the
Bureau of the Census primarily from copies of Shipper's
Export Declarations which are required to be filed with
Customs officials, except for Department of Defense Mil-
itary Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments which are
reported directly to the Bureau of the Census by the
Department of Defense. The statistics are reported as
exports of domestic or foreign merchandise. Exports of
domestic merchandise include commodities which are
grown, produced, or manufactured in the United States, and
commodities of foreign origin which have been changed in
the United States from the form in which they were
imported, or which have been enhanced in value by further
manufacture in the United States. Exports of foreign
merchandise include commodities of foreign origin which
have entered the United States as imports and which, at the
time of exportation, are in substantially the same condition
as when imported.
Export Valuation'
FAS Export Value

The value reported in the export statistics generally is
equivalent to a 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 exportalion

Export Monthly Carryover
It is the objective of the compiling procedures to include
shipments, insofar as practicable, in the statistics for the
actual month of exportation. For purposes of the statistics.
the month of exportation is generally based on the date
when the shipment leaves the United States. (For vessel or
air shipments it is the date when the carrier departs or is

cleared from the port of export.) However, as indicated
above for imports, because of processing problems (e.g., late
receipt of a document for an end-of-month shipment,
rejection of a shipment by the computer because the data fall
to meet certain edit criteria established to protect the
accuracy of the statistics, etc.), there is an overall average
carryover of about 5 percent (in terms of value) of the
Shipments from the actual month of exportation to a
subsequent month, usually the succeeding month. These
limitations should be borne in mind when making
month-to-month comparisons.

Cumulations of data over at least 4-month penods are
desirable to identify underlying trends. Month-to-month
changes in imports, exports, and similar senes often reflect
primarily irregular movements, differences in monthly
carryover, etc.

Merchandise Trade Balances

Two trade balances are presented in this report

I) The balance between exports based on f.a s. values
and imports based on Customs values.
2) The balance between exports based on f.a s values
and imports based on c.i.f. values with adjustments for
imports from affiliated sellers abroad to reflect arms-length
equivalent prices.

Both balances are useful for certain purposes. The first
balance is comparable to the U.S. trade balances published
in the past, and permits comparisons with earlier data. The
second balance is based on concepts similar to those used by
most foreign countries, and therefore provides a reference
for comparison with the trade balances published by those
countries.

Neither of these balances corresponds to a measurement of
the international payments or credit flows resulting from
trade between the U S. and foreign countries. In the first
balance, exports are valued f a.s and reflect transactions
prices, while imports are valued according to Customs legal
requirements. In the second balance, imports include freight
and insurance charges. even those paid to U S. firms, while
exports which are valued f.a s exclude freight and insurance
charges even if they are earned by U.S. firms Furthermore.
imports from affiliated foreign sellers are revalued to
arms-length prices, while no such adjustments are made for
exports.

Effective with the statistics for January 1975, the balance
using import data based on Customs valuation will be


replaced by one calculated on a consistent basis with both
exports and imports based on 1.a s transactions values At
that time comparable data for 1974 will be available.


Revisions to the Statistics

Revisions are carried n1to the statistics on a penodic
basis. Data for 1973 and 1974 appeanng in the 1974
monthly issues of this report are presented as follows

1974 StatLti.s

a January through November 1974 issues figures are as
originally issued. except as noted below.
b December 1974 issue figures reflect revisions for
prior months of the year issued with December 1974
statistics or earlier, as noted below

1973 Statistics

a. January through NMa\ 1974 issues figures reflect
revisions issued with December 1973 statistics or
earlier.
b June through December 1974 issues figures reflect
revisions to 1973 data issued with June 1974 sta-
tistics or earlier

In addition to the rctisjons which are made on a periodic
basis, instances may occur where a significant error in the
statistics for a month of the current year is discovered after
the statistics for that month are compiled If the error is of
sufficient importance to require correction pror to the time
that the regular revisions are carried, the correction is made
and so noted in this report
