U.S. FOREIGN TRADE



UT-'AND IMPORT


MERCHANDISE

J MrII-n CRAD 1070








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, 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 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.

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



IFor shipments by vessel, merchandise is not included
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 a 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
1972 statistics.
1971 Statistics

a. January through May 19"2 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.
Sources of Further Information

Additional information regarding foreign trade sta-
tistics coverage, valuation, etc., is contained in the follow-
ing publications: Report FT990, HighlightsofU.S. Export
and Import Trade; FT 135, U.S. Imports, General and
Consumption, Schedule N Commodity by Country; FT 410,
U.S. Exports, Schedule B Commodity by Country; and
the Guide to Foreign.Trade Statistics. Information re-
garding additional sources of statistics, the methodology
used in seasonally adjusting the data, and other matters
relating to foreign trade statistics may be obtained from
the Bureau of the Census, Washington, D.C. 20233.

2Witr minor exceptions, the date of export for ship-
ment. other than by mail is the date when the shipment
ies.es the United States, or, in the case of vessel or
air shipments, the date when the carrier departs (or is
cleared) from the port of export. For mail shipments, the
date orf export is considered to be the date of mailing.
