EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANI


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that during calendar year 1968, U.S.
exports of domestic and foreign merchandise, excluding
Department of Defense (DOD) Military Assistance Pro-
gram Grant-Aid shipments, and unadjusted for seasonal
change were valued at $33,840.3 million, an increase of
about 9 percent over the calendar year 1967 total of
$30,934.4 million. General imports for the calendar
year were valued at $33,114.0 million, an increase of
about 23 percent over the comparable 1967 total of
$26.812.3 million.


During December 1968, exports of domestic and
foreign merchandise, excluding Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments, on a seasonally adjusted
basis were valued at $2,866.0 million; seasonally adjusted
general imports were valued at $2,946.6 million.123
Comparable figures for November were $2,989.3 million
for exports and $2,818.3 million for imports.


For the 4-month period September-December 1968,
exports on a seasonally adjusted basis averaged $2,923.9
million per month, a level about 4 percent higher than
$2,815.2 million average reported for the preceding 4-
month period May-August 1968. Imports averaged
$2,846.5 million for the current 4-month period, a level
about 3 percent higher than the $2,773.8 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
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 decreased from $3,124.4
million in November to $3,026.0 million in December.
With Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments
included, December exports were valued at $3,075.1
million or about 3 percent below the November total of
$3,184.3 million. Unadjusted general imports amounted
to $3,017.5 million in December compared to $2,795.1
million in November.

U.S. annual export totals, including Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments for the 10 year period
1959 through 1968 are as follows: 1959--$17.6 billion;
1960--$20.6 billion; 1961--$21.0 billion; 1962--$21.7
billion; 1963--$23.3 billion; 1964--$26.5 billion; 1965--
$27.5 billion; 1966--$30.3 billion; 1967--$31.5 billion;
and 1968--$34.4 billion. Annual general import totals
for the same time span are as follows: 1959--$15.2
billion; 1960--$15.0 billion; 1961--$14.7 billion; 1962--
$16.4 billion; 1963--$17.1 billion; 1964--$18.7 billion;
1965--$21.4 billion; 1966--$25.5 billion; 1967--$26.8
billion; and 1968--$33.1 billion.


1Adjusted for seasonal and working-day variation, but not for price level.
2Cumulations 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-
month 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
changes for the period December 1962-March 1963 and December 1964-May 1965 because of abnormalities in the data due to
effects of strikes.)
