Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data 10:00O..


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Caerce,
announced today that during calendar year 1974, 0.8.
aporta of domestic and foreign merchandise, excluding
Department of Defese (DCD) Mllltary Assistance Program
Grant-Aid Whlpmenta Were valued at $97,907.2 million,
an increase of about 38 percent over the calendar year
1973 total of $70,813.2 million. General lIports
(uatuma value buasi) for the calendar year were valued
at $100,972.9 mIllion, an increase of about 45 percent
over the comparable 1973 total of $69,475.7 million.

The Bureau, part of the Departaent's Social and
aconloc SatlanceC Adminlstration LSESA) stated thal
based on the above figures, the msrchandlse trade
balaune for calendar year 1974 la in deficit by
3,065.1 million. The comparable Lrade balance for
calendar year 1973 eas a surplus of $1,347.5 million.
DIometic and foreign reports are valued on a f.a.s.
(free alongalde shlp) 0.S. port-of-exportation basic
and general imports are on a Customs value basls.

The Bureau also announced that total imports for
calendar year 1974 based on a c.l.f. (cost, Insurance,
and freight) U.S. port-of-entry value basis amounted
to 107,906.1 million. The calendar year 1974
merchbadiae trade balance computed by substituting
the c.l.f. Import value for the regular (Customas
import value and using the 1974 calendar year export
value am quoted above, which is on a f.a.s. Free
alongside ship) D.S. port-of-exportaclon basis, would
result in a deficit of $10,088.9 million.

The Bureau also stated that December 1974 exports
of domestic and foreign merchandise, excluding Depart-
ment of Defense (Di) Military Asistance Program
ant-Aid shipmenta, on a seasonally adjusted basia
amoated to $8.729.0 million' a and that December
1974 seamonally adjusted general imports (Customs value
basle) amounted to $9,335.0 million' a resulting in a
deficit for the month of $606.0 million.'

Seamonally adjusted general importa on a c.l.f.
(cot, Iurence and freight) value basis amounted to
99,963.5 llioln a nla Decamber. Using the c.l.f.
port value in lieu of the regular (Customal) port
value, and the sme export value, which is on a f.a.e.
(free alongside ship) U.S. port-of-exportatlon basai
as noted above, a deficit of $1,234.5 millions a


was computed for December.

During the 4-month period, September-December
1974, seasonally adjusted exports averaged $8,684.3
million per month, a level about 6 percent above the
$8,165.8 million average reported for the preceding
4-month period, May to August 1974. General imports
(Customs value basis) averaged $8,916.0 million per
month for the current 4-month period, which Is slightly
more than the $8,889.5 million average reported for the
preceding 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.
sports of Domestlc Merchandise--Schedule B Secrions
and Selected Divialons (f.a.s. value batal,' table 5A,
"U.S. General imports--Schedule A Sections lCustoms
value basis);" and table 5B, "O.S. General Imports--
Schedule A Sections (c.l.f. value baalss). Comodlty
components for exports exclude foreign merchandise, but
include data on DOD Milltary Assistance Program Grant-
Aid shipments.

Export unadjusted for seasonal change and
excluding Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments decreased from $9,343.3 million In November to
$8,702.8 million in December. With Military Assistance
Program Grant-Ald shilpenta Included. December exports
were valued at $8,743.5 million an compared to $9,397.5
million In November. Unadjusted general Lmports
(Customs value baals) amounted to 39,196.8 million an
December and $8,975.4 million in Notemnber.

U.S. annual export totals, excluding Military
Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, for the 10-year
period 1965 through 1974 are as follows. 1965--$26.7
billion, 1966--$29.4 billion. 1967--$30.9 billion,
1968--*34.1 billion. 1969--$37.3 billion; 1970--$42.7

general import totals (Customa value basisa for the
same time span are as follows: 1965--321.4 billion;

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


Import Statistics

General Imports/Imports for Consumption

The official U.S. import statistics are compiled by the
Bureau of the Census from copies of the import entry and
warehouse withdrawal forms which importers are required
by law to file with Customs officials. The statistics are
presented in terms of both "General Imports" and "Imports
for Consumption." General imports are a combination of
entries for immediate consumption and entries into Customs
bonded warehouses and thus generally reflect total arrivals
of merchandise. Imports for consumption are a combination
of entries for immediate consumption and withdrawals from
warehouses for consumption and thus generally reflect the
total of the commodities entered into U.S. consumption
channels.
Import Valuation'

Customs Import Value
The value of imports as appraised by the U.S. Customs
Service in accordance with the legal requirements of
Sections 402 and 402a of the Tariff Act of 1930, as
amended, is referred to as the Customs value. It may be
based on the foreign market value, export value, con-
structed value, American selling price. etc. It generally
represents a value in the foreign country, and therefore
excludes U.S. import duties, freight, insurance, and other
charges incurred in bringing the merchandise to the United
States. This valuation is primarily used for collection of
import duties and frequently does not reflect the actual
transaction value.

CIF Import Value
The c.i.f. value represents the value of imports at the first
port of entry in the United States. It is based on the
purchase price and includes 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 m 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.

Import Monthly Carryover

It 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-delivery" procedures, importers may file the
import entry up to 10 workdays after the actual date of
importation.) Also, because of processing problems (e.g.,

'Values have not been 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 the 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
month. 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
primarily irregular movements, differences in monthly
carryover, etc.
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 exportation.

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

'Values have not been adjusted for changes in pnce level.










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 fail
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 periods are
desirable to identify underlying trends. Month-to-month
changes in imports, exports, and similar series often reflect
primarily irregular movements, differences in monthly
carryover, etc.

Merchandise Trade Balances

Two trade balances are presented in this report:

1) 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 f.a.s. transactions values. At
that time comparable data for 1974 will be available.


Revisions to the Statistics

Revisions are carried into the statistics on a periodic
basis. Data for 1973 and 1974 appearing in the 1974
monthly issues of this report are presented as follows:

1974 Statistics

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 May 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 revisions 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 prior to the time
that the regular revisions are carried, the correction is made
and so noted in this report.
