exclude shipments by mail and parcel post and exports of
aircraft flown out of the country under their own power, as


well as certain types of transactions not considered to be of
statistical significance, such as personal and household
effects.

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.

Effective January 1975, the statistics for countries oilther
than Canada reflect fully compiled data for shipments
valued $1,000 and over combined with estimated data for
shipments valued from $251-$999, based on a 50-percent
sample of such shipments. Prior to January 1975, estimated
data for countries other than Canada were based on a
50-percent sample of shipments valued $251-$499 while
data for shipments valued $500 and over were fully
compiled. For Canada, the statistics continue to reflect fully
compiled data for shipments valued $2,000 and over
combined with estimated data for shipments valued from
$251-$1,999, based on a 10-percent sample of such ship-
ments. Shipping weight and value data for major aggregates
are also estimated for shipments valued under $251. These
estimates are not included in the data shown for individual
Customs ports and districts.


Inquiries concerning these figures should be addressed to the Chief, Foreign Trade Division, Bureau of the
Census, Washington, D.C. 20233. Tel: Area Code 301, 763-5140.

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).




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.


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.
