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 with-
drawal document. However, because of processing
problems, there has always been acarryoverof a small
percentage of items from the actual month of impor-
tation to a subsequent month, usually the succeeding
month. The carryover should have little effect on month-
to-month comparisons of overall totals, since the carry-
over of the previous month should compensate roughly
for that of the following month.

Export Statistics

Ex ports of domestic merchandise include commod-
ities 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 com-
modities 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


'For shipments by vessel, merchandise is not in-
cluded 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 re-
garding 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 1972 and 1973 appearing in the 1973
monthly issues of this report are presented asfollows:

1973 Statistics
a. January through November 1973 issues: figures
are as originally issued, except as noted below.
b. December 1973 issue: figures reflect revisions
for prior months of the year issued with December
1973 statistics.

1972 Statistics
a. January through May 1973 issues: figures reflect
revisions issued with December 1972 statistics or
earlier.
b. June through December 1973 issues: figures
reflect revisions to 1972 data issued with June
1973 statistics.

In addition to the revisions which are made on a
periodic basis, instances may occur where a signif-
icant 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.

Additional information regarding foreign trade sta-
tistics coverage, valuation, etc., is contained in the
following publications: Report FT990, Highlights of U.S.
Export and Import Trade; FT135, U.S. Imports, General
and Consumption, Schedule A Commodity by Country;

ology used in seasonally adjusting the data, and other

'With minor exceptions, the date of export for ship-
ments other than by mail is the date when the shipment
leaves the United States, or, in the case of vessel or
air shipments, the datewhen the carrier departs (or Is
cleared) from the port of export. For mail shipments,
the date of export is considered to be the date of mat Ing.
