SUMMARY REPORT Apr 1
FT 900 April 19

EXPORT AND IMPORT M


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted April 1069 export
total of $3,354.' million, excluding Department of Defense
(DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments, and a seasonally adjusted general import total
for April of $3,177.2 million.1 2 3 Comparable season-
ally adjusted totals for March were $3,196.0 million for
exports and $2,980.7 million for imports.' 2 3

The April seasonally adjusted export and import totals
are at record high levels. This month's export total
exceeds the previous high of $3,224.7 million (September
1968' by about $130 million. For imports, April is the
second month in a row that a record high level was
reached and is the first time that seasonally adjusted
imports have exceeded $3.0 billion. The Bureau noted
that although the seasonally adjusted (and unadjusted)
export and import totals for April were atrecord levels,
the figures probably reflect a continuation of "above-
normal" vessel activity at East and Gulf Coast ports
following the settlement of the dock strike which began
on December 20, 1968 and ended at different ports on
different dates between February 14 and April 2, 1969.
The Bureau does not, however, have adequate infor-
mation to enable it to measure precisely the influence
of the strike on the statistics. 1 2 3
For the first 4 months of 1969, exportson a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $32,822 million
(about 4 percent below the calendar year 1968 total of

$34,087 -Fhj i rts were at an annual rate of
$32,494 million (about 2 percent below the calendar
year 1968 total of $33,252 million). For the 4-month
period, January-April 1969, seasonally adjusted exports
averaged $2,735.2 million per month, a level about 7
percent less than the $2,953.1 million average reported
for the preceding 4-month period September-December
1968. Imports averaged $2,707.8 million for the current
4-month period, a level about 6 percent below the
$2,875.6 million average reported for the preceding 4-
month period.


Seasonally adjusted export and import totals for
selected Schedule A and B commodity sections and di-
visions 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 for seasonal change and excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, in-
creased from $3,366.7 million in March to $3,506.9
million in April. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included, exports increased from
$3,418.0 million in March to $3,565.9 million in April.
Unadjusted general imports amounted to $3,334.3million
in April compared to $2,993.0 million In March.


lAdjusted for seasonal and .'rking-day variation, but not for price level.
2"Normal" working-day anr seasonal adjustment factors used in adjusting export and import data are not strictly appli-
cable to periods of aonormIl port activity such as those before, during, and after strikes. This is particularly true of

"uorrlng' days. ers should &ake -ote of this limited applicability when making comparisons involving the seasonally

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


Import Statistics

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

The dollar value shown in the import statistTcs is
defined generally as the market value in the foreign
country and therefore excludes U.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. None 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 statistics
for the month of import, which is basedon the filing data
of the import entry or warehouse withdrawal document.I
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 that of the following
month.

Export Statistics

Exports of domestic merchandise include commodities
which are grown, produced, or manufactured in the United
States, and commodities of foreignorigin which have been
changed in the United States from the form in which they
were imported, or which have been enhanced in value by
further manufacture in the United States. Exports of
foreign merchandise include commodities of foreign
origin which have entered the United States as imports
and which, at the time of exportation, are in substantially
the same condition as when imported.

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

In general, compiling procedures provide for the
inclusion of shipments in the statistics 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 shipments from
their actual month of shipment to a subsequent month,
usually the following month. The statement above
regarding the effect of the import 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 year issued with December
1969 statistics.

1968 Statistics

a. January through May 1969 issues: figures reflect
revisions issued with December 1968 statistics or
earlier.

b. June through December 1969 issues: figures
reflect revisions to 1968 data issued with June
1969 statistics.

In addition to the revisions which are made on a
periodic basis, instances may occur where 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 time that the regular
revisions are carried, the correction is made and so
noted in this report.

Sources of Further Information About
Foreign Trade Statistics

Additional information regarding coverage, valuation,
etc., is contained in the following publications: Report
FT 990, Highlights of U.S. Export and Import Trade;
FT 135, U.S. Imports, General and Consumption, Schedule
A Commodity and Country; FT 410, U.S. Exports, Schedule
B Commodity and Country; and the Guide to Foreign
Trade Statistics. Information regarding additional
sources of statistics, the methodology used in seasonally
adjusting the data, and other matters relating to foreign
trade statistics may be obtained from the Bureau of the
Census, Washington, D.C. 20233.

'For shipments by vessel, merchandise is not included
in the statistics prior to the date of formal entrance of
the vessel (i.e., the date of the inward customs manifest
for the vessel).
'With minor exceptions, the date of export for ship-
ments other than by mail is tne date when tOe shipment
leaves the Inited States, or, in toe case of vessel or
air shipments, the date when the carrier departs (or is
cleared) from the port of export. For mail shipments, the
date of export is considered to be the date of mailing.

overall monthly totals in tables 1 and 2 were developed independently.
4For technical reasons, data are not presented for this section.
