SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 900 Aug J 68 8 September 26, 1968

EXPORT AND IMPORT


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that during August, U.S. exports
excluding Department of Defense (DOD) Military As-
sistance Program Grant-Aid shipments and on a
seasonally adjusted basis, were valued at $2,915.8
million and that general imports for August, also on a
seasonally adjusted basis, were valued at '$2,827.3
million.' Comparable figures for July were $2,803.0
million for exports and $2,664.4 million for imports.
The seasonally adjusted export total for August is the
highest on record, exceeding the previous high of
$2,888.5 million recorded in April by about $27 million
and is the third month this year (January, April,
August) that record high levels of exports have been
set. The seasonally adjusted general import total for
August is the second highest total reported this year and
also the second highest such total on record.

For the first 8 months of 1968, exports on a
seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual rate of
$33,148 million while imports were at an annual rate
of $32,320 million. This represents an increase in
exports of about 7 percent over the calendar year 1967
total of $30,934 million and an increase in imports of
about 21 percent over the calendar year 1967 total of
$26,812 million.


For the 4-month period May-August 1968, seasonally
adjusted exports averaged $2,799.5 million per month,
a level about 3 percent above the $2,725.3 million
average reported for the preceding 4-month period,
January-April 1968. Imports averaged $2,770.7 million
for the current 4-month period, a level about 6 percent
above the $2,616.0 million average reported for the
preceding 4-month period.

Seasonally adjusted export and import totals for
selected Schedule A and B commodity sections and
divisions are shown in tables 4 and 5. (Unlike the over-
all total, the commodity components for exports exclude
foreign merchandise and include Department of Defense
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments.)

August exports unadjusted and excluding Military
Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, were valued
at $2,786.8 million ($2,640.5 million in July). With
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments
included, August exports were valued at $2,840.5 million
about 5 percent above the comparable July total of
$2,699.5 million. Unadjusted general imports during
August amounted to $2,739.1 million, about 3 percent
below the July total of $2,812.0 million.


'Adjusted for seasonal and working-day variation, but not for price level.
C,,ulatoai: of data over at least 3- or 4-month periods are desirable to identify underlying trends. Month-to-
month changes in exports, imports, and similar series often reflect primarily irregular movements. Recent month-to-
*o".th percent changes in the overall seasonally adjusted export and import series are presented in the following table
with average percent month-to-month rise and decline over longer periods shown for comparison. (Excludes percentage
C1rnges for the perld December 1962-Harch 1963 and December 19i4-Maby 1965 because of abnormalities in the data due to
effects of strikes.)
