MERCHANDISE


SEPTEMBER 1972


Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that during September 19"2, seasonally
adjusted exports, excluding Department of Defense (DOD)
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments,
amounted to $4,157.5 million and that seasonallyadjusted
general imports for September amounted to $4,670.7
million.' Comparable seasonally adjusted totals for
August were $4,201.7 million for exports and $4,664.3
million for imports.
The Bureau, part of the Department's Social and
Economic Statistics Administration (SESAI, noted that
based on seasonally adjusted figures the merchandise
trade deficit for September was $513.2 million. The
deficit for the 9-month period iJanuary-September 19721
amounted to $4,860.8 million.

Although the seasonally adjusted import total for
September represents a new record high, it only exceeds
the previous high reported for August by $6.4 million.
The September export total was slightly lower than that
reported for August.

For the first 9 monthsof 1972, exports on a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $47,832 million
(about 10 percent above the calendar year 1971 total of
$43,549 million). Imports were at an annual rate of
$54,313 million about 19 percent above the calendar year
1971 total of $45,563 million.


For the current 4- month period, June-September 1972,
exports on a seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual
rate of $48,849 million, exceeding by about 6 percent the
annual rate of $46,110 million recorded during the pre-
ceding 4 months February-May 1972. The monthly
averages for exports were $4,0"0.8 million for June-
September and $3,842.5 million for February-May. Im-
ports on a seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual
rate of $55,1"'4 million during the current 4 months,
exceeding by about 3 percent the annual rate of $53,411
million recorded during the preceding 4 months. The
monthly averages for imports were $4.59"'. million for
June-September ana $4,451.0 million for February-!.lay.

Seasonally adjusted export and import totals for se-
lected Schedule A and B commodity sections and divisions
are shown in tables 4 and 5. iLnlike the overall total,
the commodity components for exports exclude foreign
merchandise and include DOD Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments.p

Exports unadjusted for seasonal change and excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments in-
creased from $3,945.8 million in August to $3,965.0
million in September. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included, September exports %ere
valued at $4,008.1 million as compared to $3,991.4
million in August. Unadjusted general importsamounted
to $4,484.8 million in September and $4,72'.3 million
in August.

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS .


Import Statistics

General imports are a combination of entries for
immediate consumption and entries into bonded ware-
houses. Imports for consumption are a combination of
entries for immediate consumption and withdrawals
from warehouses for consumption.

The dollar value shown in the import statistics is
defined generally as the market value in the foreign
country and therefore excludes U.S. import duties,
freight charges from the foreign country to the United
States, and insurance. Value information is required
to be reported on import entries in accordance 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, insofaras 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 thatof the following
month.

Export Statistics

Exports of domestic merchandise include commodities
which are grown, produced, or manufactured inthe United
States, and commodities of foreignorigin whichhave 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

export' However, as indicated above for imports,
because of processing problems there has always been
a carryover of a small percentage of shipments from
theit'actual month of shipment to a subsequent month,
L.ujly the following month. The statement above
gfrding the effect of the import carryover generally
a ies.tp exports also.

S"- Revisions to-the Statistics
Revis -.are carried into the statistics on a periodic
basis. Data To6F 19"1 and 1972 appearing in the 1972
monthly issues of this report are presentedas 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
1972 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.

tistics coverage, valuation, etc., is contained in the follow-

merntr other than by mail is the date when the shipment,

air shipments, the date when the carrier departs for is
