SUMMARY REPORT ebruar 1 9 FOR RELEASE
FT 900 Febru y 9 March 27, 1969

EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE


The Bureau of the Census. Department of Commerce.
announced today a seasonally adjusted February 1969
export total of $2.312.7 million excluding Department of
Defense (DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid
shipments, and a seasonally adjusted general import
total for February of $2.674.4 million.1 2 3 4 Com-
parable seasonally adjusted totals for January were
$2,082.3 million for exports and $1.966.7 million for
imports. 1 2 4 Effective analysis of the January and
February data is difficult, the Bureau noted, because
of "below normal" vessel activity at East and Gulf
Coast ports during January and February resulting, from
the dock strike which began on December 20, 1968.
Although the strike was terminated at the port of New
York on February 14 (the first port at which settlement
was reached), and on different dates at most other ports
during the latter half of February, a few ports remained
idle through February and into March. The Bureau
does not, however, have adequate information to enable
it to measure precisely the influence of the strike on
the statistics.' 2 3 '
For the 4-month period, November 1968-February
1969. seasonally adjusted exports (excluding DOD Military
Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments) averaged


$2.570.4 million per month, a level about 12 percent
below the $2,913.3 million average reported for the
preceding 4-month period July-October 1968. Imports
averaged $2,606.9 million for the current 4-month
period, a level about 7 percent below the $2,791.1
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 5.2 (Unlike the
overall total, the commodity components for exports
exclude foreign merchandise and include Department
of Defense IDOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-
Aid shipments.)
Exports, unadjusted for seasonal change and excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, in-
creased from $2,056.7 million in January to $2,144.7
million in February. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included, February exports were
valued at $2,179.1 million or about 3 enr above the
January total of $2,111.3 million j a tencral
imports amounted to ,2,40 1 orfcL ary

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


Import Statistics

General imports are a combination of entries for
immediate consumption and entries into bonded ware-
houses. Lmports for consumption are a combination of
entries for immediate consumption and withdrawals
from warehouses for consumption.

The dollar value show n the import statistics is
defined generally as the market value in the foreign
country and therefore excludes L.S. import duties,
freight charges from the foreign country to the United
States, and insurance. Value information is required
to be reported on import entries in accordance with
Sections 402 and 402a of the Tariff Act of 1930, as
amended. one of the values have been adjusted for
changes in price level.

It is the objective of the compiling procedures to
include shipments, insofar as practicable, in the statistic
for the month of import, which is based on the filing data
of the import entry or warehouse withdrawal document.
However, because of processing problems, there has
always been a carryover of a small percentage of items
from the actual month of importation to a subsequent
month, usually the succeeding month. The carryover
should have little effect on month-to-month comparisons
of overall totals, since the carryover of the previous
month should compensate roughly for thatof thefollowing
month.

Export Statistics

Exports of domr -tic merc hand Lse include commodities
which are grown, produced, or manufactured in the United
States, and cornmod ries of foreign origin which have been
changed in the L united States from the form in which they
were Lmported, or which have been enhanced in value by
further manfacr'e in *he L'ited Stares. Exports of
rorelgn rnercanditsc include co-nmodities of foreign
origin wlich ha.e entered the L'irted States as imports
and which, at the time of expormaion, arein substantially
the same condition as when imported.

The dollar value shown in the export statistics is
defined general as the f.a.s. value at the U.S. port of
exportation. Thes values have not been adjusted for
changes in price level.

In general, coupling procedures provide for the
inclusion of shipments in the atistics for the month of
export. However, as indicated above for imports,
because of processing problems there has always been
a carryover of a small percentage of shipmes from
their actual month of shipment to a subsequent month,
usually the following th The statement above
regarding r-ee effect of the impo carryover generally
applies to exports also.


Revisions to the Statistics

Revisions are carried into the statistics on periodic
basis. Data for 1968 and 1969 appearing in the 1969
monthly issues of this report are presented as follows:

1969 Statistics

a. January through November 1969 issues: figures
are as originally issued, except as noted below.

b. December 1969 issue: figures reflect revisions
for prior months of the .ear issued with December
1969 statistics.

1968 Statistics

a. January through May l*9 issues: figures reflect
revisions issued with December 1968 statistics or
earlier.

b. June through December 1969 issues: figures
reflect revisions to 1965 data issued with June
1969 statistics.

In addition to the revisions which are made on a
periodic basis, instances may occur -ihere a significant
error in the statistics for a month of the current year
is discovered after the statistics for that month are
compiled. If the error is of sufficient importance to
require correction prior to the tune that the regular
revisions are carried, the correction is made and so
noted in this report.
