The value reported in the export statistics generally is
equivalent to the f.a.s. (free alongside ship) value at the U.S.
port of export, based on the transaction price, including
inland freight, insurance, and other charges incurred in
placing the merchandise alongside the carrier at the U.S.
port of exportation. For exports by air, the port of lading
shown in this report is the port where the merchandise is
loaded on the aircraft which takes the goods out of the
country.

For security reasons, certain commodities are designated
as Special Category commodities, for which security regula-
tions place restrictions upon the type of export information
that may be released. The data shown in this report for
individual Customs ports, districts and continents exclude
exports of Special Category commodities, but overall
shipping weight and value totals for Special Category
commodities are shown. A list of Special Category commod-
ities may be obtained from the Bureau of the Census.

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.


Imports

These statistics represent general imports, which are a
combination of imports for immediate consumption and


entries

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.

The Customs value shown in this report represents the
value of imports as appraised by the U.S. Customs Service in
accordance with the legal requirements of Sections 402 and
402a of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. It may be
based on the foreign market value, export value, construct-
ed value, American selling price, etc. It generally represents
a value in the foreign country, and therefore excludes U.S.
import duties, freight, insurance, and other charges incurred
in bringing the merchandise to the United States. This
valuation is primarily used for collection of import duties
and frequently does not reflect the actual transaction value.


For imports by air, the port of unlading shown in this
report is the port where the merchandise is unloaded from
the aircraft which brings the goods to the United States.

of the value-weight


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 $500,000 will
generally have a sampling variability of less than $50,000.


c










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).


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


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,


thus considerably


reducing


the possibility


of error. In


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.
