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
Customs districts) through which air shipments were made.
Prior to January 1975 data were shown only for those
Customs districts having combined exports and imports by
air valued at $1.5 million or more during the preceding
calendar year. A complete list of districts and ports is
presented in Schedule D, Classification of U.S. Customs
Districts and Ports for U.S. Foreign Trade Statistics,
January 1, 1974 edition, as amended.

Since the export figures shown include estimates based
on a sample of low-valued shipments, they are subject to
some degree of sampling variability. The table below
provides a rough guide to the general level of sampling
variability of value totals, on a 2 chances out of 3 basis.
Usually the higher value figures will have the lower percent
sampling errors.

Merchandise shipped through the United States in transit
from one foreign country to another, when documented as
such with U.S. Customs, is not reported as imports and is
excluded from the data. Imports by mail and parcel post
and imports of aircraft flown into the United States under
their own power are also excluded from this report as well
as certain transactions not considered to be of statistical
significance, such as personal and household effects.

Shipping Weight


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.
