This report presents statistics on U.S. exports from and
imports into the U.S. Customs territory (includes the 50
States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) by air.
The data have been compiled primarily from export
declarations and import entries during the regular processing
of statistics on foreign trade shipments. Effective January
1975, this report presents data for all individual ports (and

and Ports for U.S. Foreign Trade Statistics,

Exports


These statistics represent exports of domestic and foreign
merchandise combined and include government and non-

The statistics shown for individual Customs districts
represent fully compiled data for shipments valued $251
and over. Data for shipments valued under $251, re-
ported on formal and informal entries (informal entries
generally contain items valued under $251), are estimated
from a 1-percent sample for 1974. Separate shipping
weight and value estimates for shipments valued under
$251 are shown. The shipping weight data are estimated
from the values on the basis of constants that have been
derived from an observation of the value-weight relation-
ships in past periods.


Imports

These statistics represent general imports, which are
a combination of imports for immediate consumption and
entries into bonded warehouses. The statistics include
government as well as nongovernment shipments of


Since the statistics showing total value of imports by
all carriers include sample estimates, they are subject
to sampling variability. In general, the higher value
figures will have the lower percent sampling errors.
Value totals of $500,000 and over will generally have a
sampling variability of less than 3 percent; value totals
of under 5500,000 will generally have a sampling
variability of less than $50,000.


I









Sources of Error in the Statistics


Shipping weight figures, shown for both imports and
exports, represent the gross weight of shipments, including
the weight of moisture content, wrappings, crates, boxes,
and containers (other than containers such as cargo vans and
similar substantial outer containers used for containerized
cargo).


Monthly import and export figures are subject to the
possibility of errors which may arise from various sources.
Among these are errors in the reporting and/or processing of
information as to value, shipping weight and other statistical
factors, month of inclusion, and errors which may result
from the sampling of certain import and export shipments,
discussed above. In the case of imports the information as
to value (and commodity classification, country of origin,
and net quantity) is verified by Customs officials on entries
filed for transactions valued over $250 which are ordinarily
subject to examination for Customs appraisement purposes,


The sampling variability applicable to the dollar figures
will provide an approximate guide to the reliability of the
matching shipping weight figures. For technical reasons, the
sampling variability of the shipping weight will be somewhat
more than for the dollar value figures.

error.


addition, the procedures used to compile both the import
and export statistics include clerical and computer process-
ing checks designed to protect the accuracy of the statistics
to the fullest practicable extent.
