EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE T


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted November 1968
export total of $2.989. 3 million, excluding Departmentof
Defense (DOD) Military Assistance ProgramGrant-Aid
shipments. and a seasonally adjusted general import
total for November of $2 818 3 million.' 2 Comparable
figures for October were $2,594.2 million for exports
and $2,657.4 million for imports. The seasonally
adjusted November export total is the second highest
total on record and is exceeded only by the all time
high of $3.245.9 million reported in September of this
year. November is the fourth month during 1968 that
general imports on a seasonally adjusted basis have
exceeded $2.800.0 million. The Bureau noted, however,
that the general import monthly average for the year
(January-November) on a seasonally adjusted basis is
about $2,726.0 million.


For the first 11 months of 1968, exports on a
seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual rate of
$33,740 million (about 9 percent higher than the
calendar year 1967 total of $30.934 million) while
imports were at an annual rate of $32,712 million
(about 22 percent higher than the calendar year 1967
total of $26,812 million). For the 4-month period,


August-November 1968, seasonally adjusted exports
averaged $2,936.3 million per month, a level about
5 percent higher than the $2,792.6 million average
reported for the preceding 4-month period April-
July 1968. Imports averaged $2,816.7 million for the
current 4-month period, a level about 3 percent
higher than the $2,724.0 million average reported for
the preceding 4-month period.

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

Exports unadjusted and excluding Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments increased from $2,714.9
million in October to $3,124.4 million in November.
With Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments
included, November exports were valued at $3,184.3
million or about 15 percent higher than the October
total of $2,763.4 million. Unadjusted general imports
amounted to $2,795.1 million in November compared to
$2,924.1 million in October.
