EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


Import Valuation


Coverage

The U.S. import statistics reflect both government and
nongovemment imports of merchandise from foreign coun-
tries into the U.S. Customs territory, which includes the 50
States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The U.S.
import statistics exclude imports into the Virgin Islands,
Guam, American Samoa, and other U.S. possessions; and
shipments between the United States and Puerto Rico,
between the United States and U.S. possessions, and
between any of these outlying areas.'(Data on U.S. trade
with Puerto Rico and with U.S. possessions are published
separately in Report FT 800. Additional data on such trade
and on imports into the Virgin Islands from foreign coun-
tries are presented in reference tabulations.) Data on
imports of petroleum and selected petroleum products.
including shipments into the Virgin Islands from foreign
countries, (previously shown in Report FT 900-Supple-
ment) are included in this report effective with the January
1976 statistics
The U.S. import statistics also exclude American goods
returned to the United States by its Armed Forces; intransit
shipments through the United States. temporary shipments;
transactions not considered to be of statistical significance,
such as shipments of personal and household effects; low-
valued nondutiable imports by mail. issued monetary coins
of all component metals; and gold in the form of ores,
concentrates, waste, scrap. and refined bullion. Imports of
silver in these forms are included in the statistics, unless
otherwise noted. (Information on gold movements, pre-
viously shown in Report FT 2402, appears in Report FT
990 effective January 1975.)

General Imports/Imports For Consumption

The statistics on U.S. imports are presented in terms of
both "General Imports" and "Imports for Consumption."
General imports are a combination of entnes 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.

Source Of Import Information

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 information as to
country of ongin, net quantity, value, and commodity
classification is verified by Customs officials on entries filed
for transactions valued over $250. which are ordinarily sub-
ject to examination for Customs appraisement purposes.
The statistical copy of the entry is corrected if it does not
accurately reflect the information called for by the statis-
tical requirements


F.a.s. Import Value.-The f.a.s. (free alongside ship) value
represents the transaction value of imports at the foreign
port of exportation. It is based on the purchase price, i.e.,
the actual transaction value and generally includes all
charges incurred in placing the merchandise alongside the
carrier at the port of exportation in the country of exporta-
tion.

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 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
in deriving the c if. value is based on an arm'slength equiv-
alent 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 is practicable, in the statistics for the
actual month of impiration However, for purposes of the
statistics the month ol importation is based on the date of
official acceptance by Customs of the import entry or ware-
house withdrawal document. This may not in all cases corre-
spond 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., 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 magni-
tude 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.

Estimated Data for Imports Valued Under S251

The overall import and Schedule A Section 9 totals
include sample estimates for shipments valued under 1251.
Therefore, they are subject to sampling error, estimated at


IMPORT STATISTICS








less than one-tenth of one percent for the unadjusted overall
total and about one percent for the unadjusted Schedule A
Section 9 total. This means that we can have about 67
percent confidence that the published unadjusted overall
totals and the unadjusted Schedule A Section 9 totals differ
by less than one-tenth of a percent and one percent, respec-
tively, from the totals that would have resulted from a com-
plete tabulation. The statistics on imports of petroleum and
petroleum products included in this report reflect fully
compiled data and, therefore, are not subject to sampling
error.


EXPORT STATISTICS

Coverage

The export statistics reflect, in general, both government
and nongovernment exports of domestic and foreign mer-
chandise from the U.S. Customs territory (includes the 50
States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) to for-
eign countries, whether the exportation involves a com-
mercial transaction or not. The statistics, therefore, include
Department of Defense Military Assistance Program Grant-
Aid shipments, shipments for economic assistance under the
Foreign Assistance Act and shipments of agricultural com-
modities under P. L. 480 (The Agricultural Trade Develop-
ment and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related
laws. The following are excluded from the statistics: Ship-
ments to U.S. Armed Forces and diplomatic missions
abroad for their own use; shipments between the United
States and Puerto Rico. between the United States and its
possessions (including the Virgin Islands), and between
these outlying areas; exports from U.S. possessions; intransit
shipments through the United States, transactions not con-
sidered to be of statistical importance, such as personal and
household effects; temporary exports; low-valued or non-
commerical exports by mail; issued monetary coins of all
component metals; and gold in the form of ores, concen-
trates, waste, scrap, and refined bullion. Exports of silver in
these forms are included in the statistics, unless otherwise
noted. (Information on gold movements, previously shown
in Report FT 2402, appears in Report FT 990 effective
January 1975.)



Definition of Exports of Domestic
and 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 for-
eign merchandise consist of 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.


Source of Export Information

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 Mili-
tary Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments which are
reported directly to the Bureau of the Census by the
Department of Defense and shipments by qualified ex-
porters who have been authorized to submit data in the
form of magnetic tape, punched cards, or monthly Shipper's
Summary Export Declarations directly to the Bureau of the
Census.
Export Valuation

F.a.s. Export Value.-The value reported in the export sta-
tistics generally is equivalent to a f.a.s. t 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 carter 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, re-
jection 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 4 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.
Estimated Data for Export Shipments

The overall export and Schedule B section and division
totals include sample estimates for shipments valued
$251-S1.999 to Canada and for shipments valued
$251-5999 to countries other than Canada. Data for ship-
ments valued $250 and under to all countries are also esti-
mated, based on established percentages of individual
country totals, and included in the Schedule B Section 9
totals regardless of the commodity exported. It is estimated
that the unadjusted overall total is subject to a sampling
error of less than one-tenth of one percent, and the unad-
justed Schedule B section or division totals are subject to







4

sampling errors of about one percent In addition, the
Schedule B Secton 9 total is subject to possible error in the
estimated data for shipments valued 5250 and under, and
the overall total, and the mdividual totals for sections other
than Section 9. to a more limited extent Such 5250 and
under shipments represent about 1 percent of the tolal
value of exports. and about 60 percent of the Schedule B
Section 9 total

SOURCES OF ERROR IN THE STATISTICS

Monthly import and export figures are subject to the
possibility of errors which may anse from sources other
than sampling errors. discussed above Among these are
errors in the reporting and/or processing of information as
to commodity classification value and other statistical
factors, month of inclusion (see paragraphs on import and
export carryover, above), and the undercountingof exports
to Canada due to the non-receipt of Shipper's Export
Declarations For 1974. the undercounting amounted to
about one and one-half billon dollars In the case of im
ports the information as to value and commodir) classifica-
lion (as well as count) of ongin and net quantity) is
venfied by Customs officials on entries filed for transacLions
valued over $250 which are ordinarily subject to examina-
ton for Customs appraisement purposes, thus considerable
reducing the possibility of error In addition. the procedures
used to compile both the import and export statistics
include clencal and computer processing checks designed to
protect the accuracy) of the statistics to the fullest practi
cable e' tent


MERCHANDISE TRADE BALANCES


Two trade balances are presented in this report
II The balance between exports based on fa s values
and imports based on f a s values
2) The balance between exports based on fa s. alues
and imports based on c i f alues with adjustments for im-
ports from affiliated sellers abroad to reflect arms-length
equivalent pnces.
Both balances are useful for certain purposes The first
balance corresponds to a measurement of the nternmaonal
payments or credit flows resulting from merchandise trade
between the U.S. and foreign counties The second balance
is based on concepts similar to those used by most foreign
counties. and therefore provides a reference for comparison
with the trade balances published by those countries


REVISIONS TO THE STATISTICS

Revisions are cared into the statistics on a periodic
bals. Data for 1975 and 1976 appearing in the 1976
nsunthly issues of this report are presented as follows-

1976 Statistics

a January through November 1976 issues figures are as
originally issued, except as noted below.
b. December 1976 issue figures reflec revisions for
pnor months of the year issued with December 1976
slaristics or earlier, as noted below

1975 Staistics

a January through May 1976 issues, figures reflect re-
visions issued with December 1975 statistics or
earlier.
b. June through December 1976 issues. figures reflect
revisions to 1975 data issued with June 1976 statistics
or earlier

In addition to the revisions which are made on a periodic
basis, instances may -ur where a significant error in the
statistics for a month ol 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.
