MERCHANDISE


OCTOBER 1972


November 27,1972


Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that during October 1972, seasonally
adjusted exports, excluding Department of Defense iDOD)
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments,
amounted to $4,364.6 million and that seasonally adjusted
general imports for October amounted to $4,'79.6 mil-
lion. I 2 Comparable seasonally adjusted totals for Sep-
tember were $4,157.5 million for exports and $4,670."
million for imports.
The Bureau, part of the Department's Social and
Economic Statistics Administration (SESA), noted that
the merchandise trade deficit for October of $415.0 mil-
lion was the smallest deficit reported since January of
this year. The deficit for the 10-month period iJanuary-
October 1972) amounted to $5,2"5.8 million. These
figures are based on seasonally adjusted data.

October was the fourth consecutive month that sea-
sonally adjusted imports were at anew record high level.
The October seasonally adjusted export total represents
the highest such figure reported since September 19-1
when exports amounted to $4,505.0 million.
For thefirer l0monthsof 1972, exportson a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $48,286 million
(about 11 percent above the calendar year 19"l total of
$43,549 million). Imports were at an annual rate of
$54,617 million (about 20 percent above the calendar year
1971 total of $45,563 million).


For the current 4-month period, July-October 1972,
exports on a seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual
rate of $50,229 million, exceeding by about 8 percent the
annual rate of $46,408 million recorded during the
preceding 4 months March-June 19"2. The monthly
averages for exports were $4,185.8 million for July-
October and $3,86".3 million for March-June. Imports
on a seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual rate of
$56,028 million during the current 4 months, exceeding
by about 4 percent the annual rate of $53,687 million
recorded during the preceding 4 months. The monthly
averages for imports were $4,t.69.0 million for
July-October and $1,4"3.9 million for March-June.
Seasonally adjusted export and import totals for
selected Schedule A and B commodity sections and divi-
sions are shown in tables 4 and S*. Unlike the overall
total, the commodity components for exports exclude
foreign merchandise and include DOD Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments.'
Exports unadjusted for seasonal change and excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments in-
creased from $3,965.0 million in September to $4,442.?
million in October. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included, October exports were
valued at $4,510.2 million as compared to $4,008.1
million in September. Unadjusted general imports
amounted to $5,007.1 million in October and $4,484.8
million in September.

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 %alue 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 1Q30, as
amended. None of the valuess have been adjusted for
changes in price level.

It is the obiecti.e of the compiling procedures to
include .hipmenis, insofar aspracticable, inthe statistics
for the month of import, shich is based on the filing date
of the import entry or warer.ouse withdrawal document. '
Ho'.e'.c r, because of processing problems, there has
al" a) s been a carr',over of a small percentage of items
from the actual month of importation to a subsequentt
month, usually the succeeding month. The carryover
should hae little effect on month-to-month comparisons
of overall totals, since the cari,,v'er of tre pre'.'ous
month should compensate roughly for that of the follow' ing
month.

Export Statistics

Exports of dIumLtic m,. rchandise include commriodities.
which are grown, produced, or manufactured in the United
States, and commodities of forignorig;r, which hac.been
changed in the United Stat ss from the form in which h the,,
were importEd, or which have been enhanced ir '.alue by
further manufacture in the United States. Exports of
fore-igr merchandise include commodities of for.:ign
origin which have entered the United States as imports
and which, at the time of exportation, are in suitstantiaily
the same condition as when imported.

The dollar value shown in the export statistics. is
dMfined en.ririllj as the f.a.s. value at the U.S. port of
e':porration The-:. values have not been adjusted for
changes in price level.

In general, :ormplhng procedures provide f,.r the
inclusion of shipments in the statistics for th. month of



IFor shipments by vessel, merchandise is .: i ir. 3J
in the statistics prior to the date of formal erii.rr,.-- .. -
the vessel (i.e., the date of the inward cust:r r.uii 'ts
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
Pevisions are carried into the statistics on periodic
batsI. Data for 19"l and 19-2 appearing in the 1972
monthly', issues of this report are presented as follows:

1972 Statistics
a. January through November 1072 issues: figures
are a- originally issued, except as noted below.
b. December 19"2 issue: figures reflect revisions
for prior months of the year issued with December
l'-2 statistics.

1971 Statistics

a. January, through May 19.'2 issues: figures reflect
re. isions issued with December 19"I statistics or
earlier.
b. lunethrcugn December I-"2 issue.: figures reflect
re,.'isions tro 19- data issued with June 19'2
statstic .
In addition to the re, isions which are made on a
periodic ba;ii, instances may occur where a significant
error in the statistics for a month o01 the current year
i- discovered after the statistics for that month are
compiled. 11 the error is of sufficient importance to
require correction prior to the time that the regular
revision' are carried, the correction i- made and so
noted in this report.

Indexes of

U.S. Exports and Imports


by Economic Class:


1919 to 1971


The Bureau of the Census presents an up-dated version of "Index
Numbers of the United States Exports and Imports 1919 to 1971."
This new publication contains selected annual data compiled by the
U.S. Department of Commerce on U.S. foreign trade since 1919 and
quarterly since 1958. In addition to statistics of dollar values, three
types of index numbers are presented. These are unit value (price),
quantity, and (total) value indexes.

All commodities in U.S. export and import trade have been grouped
into one of five economic classes as follows:

Crude foods-Products for edible use (by man or animals)
which have not been substantially processed after sale by the
farmer, fisherman, rancher, or other primary producer.
Manufactured foods-Processed forms of crude foods, edible
and refined oils, and oilcake and meal.
Crude materials-Products of farms, forests, fisheries, and
mines which are for nonfood use and which are unprocessed
by manufacturing.
Semimanufactures-Manufactured materials in the early stages
of processing.
Finished manufactures-Highly processed bulk materials and
products manufactured from semimanufactures or other
finished products.

For recent years and quarters, this informative publication also
contains data for "manufactured goods." This grouping includes
commodities which, according to the Standard International Trade
Classification of the United Nations, are classified as chemicals,
manufactured goods grouped chiefly by material, machinery, trans-
port equipment, and miscellaneous manufactured articles.
