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 I, 1974 edition, as amended.

Exports

These statistics represent exports of domestic and foreign
merchandise combined and include government and non-
government shipments of merchandise by air from the
United States to foreign countries. The statistics, therefore,


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

For security reasons, certain commodities are designated
as Special Category commodities, for which security regula-

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 mer-
chandise by air from foreign countries to the United States.
However, American goods returned by the U.S. Armed
Forces for their own use are excluded. U.S. trade with
Puerto Rico and with U.S. possessions and trade between
U.S. possessions are not included in this report, but imports
into Puerto Rico from foreign countries are included.
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.

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.
The statistics shown for individual Customs ports and
districts represent fully compiled data for shipments valued
$251 and over. Data for shipments valued under $251,
reported on formal and informal entries (informal entries
generally contain items valued under $251), are estimated
from a 1-percent sample following standard practice. Sepa-
rate 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
relationships in past periods.

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.
