EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


Import Statistics '

General imports are a cor inatmion of entries',.for..
immediate consumption and l 'into bonded ware- \
houses. Imports for consu Ltion are a combination of,
entries for immediate cor mItion qnd withdrawals t
from warehouses for consum|lrt ,

The dollar value shown L import statistics fi /
defined generally as the ma t value in the foreign ,
country and therefore exclus. V S. import I4&.:_
freight charges from the forei gfl. cray-to UiiMed'
States, and insurance. Value in t f tNotn sis -'t uired
to be reported on import entries in soQrdante with
Sections 402 and 402a of the Tariff Act of 1930, as
amended. None of the values have been adjusted for
changes in price level.

It is the objective of the compiling procedures to
include shipments, insofar as practicable, in the statistics
for the month of import, which is based on the filing date
of the import entry or warehouse withdrawal document. 1
However, because of processing problems, there has
always been a carryover of a small percentage of items
from the actual month of importation to a subsequent
month, usually the succeeding month. The carryover
should have little effect on month-to-month comparisons
of overall totals, since the carryover of the previous
month should compensate roughly for that of the following
month.

Export Statistics

Exports of domestic merchandise include commodities
which are grown, produced, or manufactured in the United
States, and commodities of foreignoriginwhich 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.

The dollar value shown in the export statistics is
defined generally as the f.a.s. value at the U.S. port of
exportation. These values have not been adjusted for
changes in price level.

In general, compiling procedures provide for the
inclusion of shipments in the statistics for the month of



1For shipments by vessel, merchandise is not includ-c
in the statistics prior to the date of formal entrance of
the vessel (i.e., the date of the inward customs manifest
for the vessel).


export. However, as indicated above for imports,
because of processing problems there has always been
a carryover of a small percentage of shipments from
their actual month of shipment to a subsequent month,
usually the following month. The statement above
regarding the effect of the import carryover generally
applies to exports also.

Revisions to the Statistics
Revisions are carried into the statistics on periodic
basis. Data for 1971 and 1972 appearing in the 1972
monthly issues of this report are presented as follows:

1972 Statistics
a. January through November 1972 issues: figures
are as originally issued, except as noted below.
b. December 1972 issue: figures reflect revisions
for prior months of the year issued with December
19"2 statistics.
1971 Statistics

a. January through May 1972 issues: figures reflect
revisions issued with December 1971 statistics or
earlier.
b. June through December 1972 issues: figures reflect
revisions to 1971 data issued with June 1972
statistics.
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.
