Issued November 1975


This report presents statistics on U.S. exports and
imports by air in U.S. I ustoms district by continent
arrangement. Data have been compiled from Shipper's
Export Declarations iCommerce Form ~525-\") and
import entries during the regular processing of statis-
tical data on foreign trade shipments. The Customs
districts shown in this report are those having combined
exports and imports by air valued at $1.5 million or more
during the preceding calendar year. A complete list of
,us.toms districts and ports is presented in schedule D,
Classification of L1.S. Customs Districts and Ports for
U.S. foreign Trade Statistics. January I, 19"4 edition,
as amended.

Exports
These statistics represent exports of domestic and
foreign merchandise combined and include government
and nongovernment shipments of merchandise by air
from the United States to foreign countries.. The
statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense
Military assistancee Program- -Crant-Aid shipments.
shipments for economic assistance under the Foreign
assistancee Act, and shipments of agricultural commod-
ities under P.1 480'The Agricultural Trade Development
and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended and related laws.
Shipments to U.S. \rmed Forcesanddiplomatic missions
abroad for their own use are not included in the export
statistics. U.S. trade with Puerto Rico and U.S.
possessions and trade between U.S. possessions are not
included in this r,.-port, but exports from Put rto Rico to
foreign countries are included as a part of the U.S..
export statistics. Merchandise shipped through the
United States in transit from one foreign country to
another, whLen documentLd as such with lU.r. ,-ustoms,
is excluded. i Foreign merchandise that has entered the
United Siates asan import and is subsequently reexported
is not treated as in-transit merchandise, and is included
in this report.i The figures in this report exclude ex-
ports of household and personal effects, shipments by
mail and parcel post, and shipments of airplanes under
their own power.


The '.alue reported in the export statistics g_.n-. rally
is equivalent to a f a.s. 'fret alongside ship '.alue at the
I.'. port of export, based on the transaction price, in-
cluding inland freight, insurance, and other charges
incurred in placing the merchandise alongside the
carrier at the l.'. port of exportation.


For security reasons, certain commodities aredesig-
nated as Special Category commodities, for *hi.h
security regulations place restrictions upon the export
information that may be released. The data shown in
this report for individual t customs districts and conti-
nents exclude exports utl Spcial Category commodities,
but overall shipping weight and value total. for Srecial
Category commodities are shown. .1 lit ot -pecial
Category commodities may be obtained irom the: bureau
of the Census.


The statistics on exports of domestic and foreign
merchandise to countries other than Canada reflect fully
compiled data for shipments valued 5500 and over
combined with estimated data for shipments valued
$251-5404, based on 50-percent probability sample
of such shipments. For exports to Canada the statistics
reflect fully compiled data for shipments valued $2,000
and over combined with estimated data for shipments
valued $251-5.Q999, based on a 10-percent probability
sample of such shipments. Shipping weight and value
data are also estimated for shipments valued under $251.
These estimates are not included in the data shown for
individual Customs districts.


Sine.L the export figures shown include estimates
bas,.d on a sample of lcw-valucd shipments, the\ are
.zublecr to some degr- of sampling variability The
table, on rhe. fnlloming page prro di.- a rough guide to
thL g'..ne ral le-i l of sampling ariabilit-, of ''alu,_ totals,
on a 2 chanc.s_ .-ut of 3 basis. U'..uall\, the hichr value

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.

Imports

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


Value totals for
r,1i Il" and '.'r i i
America" of:


merchandise by air from foreign countries to the United
S'tatrs. However, American goods returned by the U.S.
Armed Forces for their ownuseareexcluded. 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
considered to beU.S. importsandare included. Merchan-
dise shipped through the United States in transit from one
foreign country, to another, when documented as such
through U.S. Customs, is not reported as imports and is
excluded from the data shown in this report. (Foreign
merchandise that has entered the United States as an
import and is subsequently reexported is nor treated as
in-transit merchandise and is included in this report.)
Imports of household and personal effects, imports by
mail and parcel post, and importsofairplanesunder their
own power are not included.




I he Customs value shown in this report represents
the value of imports as appraised by the U.S. Customs
"1ervicL in accordance with the legal requirements of
sections s 402 and 402a of the Tariff Act of 1930, as
amended. It may be based on the foreign market
value, export value, constructed value, American selling
price, etc. It generally represents a value in the foreign
country, and therefore excludes U.S. import duties,
freight, insurance, and othercharges incurred inbringing
thi merchandise to the Umnited States. This valuation is
primarily used for collection of import duties and
frequently does not reflect the actual transaction value.



The statistics shown for individualCustoms districts
represent full', 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', areestimated
irom a I-percent sample for 194. 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 ofthevalue-weight relation-
ships in past periods.



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 Iowv.r 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 $50I.000.










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, wrdppings, 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 t&-
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.

guide to


foreign trade


statistics:


1975



Exports...imports...whatever you wish to know concern-
ing foreign trade the "Guide" offers you the most
convenient way to find the facts. The foreign trade sta-
tistics program, conducted by the Bureau of the Census,
involves the compilation and dissemination of thousands
of facts relating to imports and exports of the United
States. These statistics are designed to serve the needs of
both Government and non-Government users who have
wide ranges of interests and a variety of reasons for re-
quiring information on foreign trade. The "Guide to
Foreign Trade Statistics" includes the listings of data
presented in many different arrangements and released
in the form of reports available by subscription and in re-
ports and machine tabulations, magnetic tapes, and micro-
forms offered for public reference use. Up-to-date reports
and special tabulations listed show current plans for the
release of foreign trade statistical data through 1975.
