SUMMARY REPORT June 19691
FT 900 J 1969


EXPORT AND IMPORT I

The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted June 1969 export
total of $3.212.8 million, excluding Department of Defense
(DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments, and a seasonally adjusted general import total
for June of $3,187.5 million. (The Bureau noted, how-
ever, that due to delays in the receipt of certain docu-
ments, the June export total may be understated by as
much as $55 million. Data from these documents will
be included in the July statistics.) Comparable seasonally
adjusted totals for May were $3,291.8 millionforexports
and $3,276.1 million for imports.1 2


Although the June seasonally adjusted export total is
well below the record high $3,354.7 million figure re-
ported in April 1969, it is close to the monthly average
evident during the second quarter of 1969. The import
total for June, though off slightly from May, is the
second highest such total recorded this year.

For the first 6 monthsof 1969, exportson a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $34.891 million
(about 2 percent above the calendar year 1968 total of
$34,063 million). Imports were at an annual rate of
$34,590 million (about 4 percent above the calendar
year 1968 total of $33.226 million). For the 4-month
period, March June 1969, seasonally adjusted exports
averaged $3.263.8 million per month, a level about 26

percent above"_1adlfigl million average reported for
the preceding 4-month period November 1968 February
1969. Imports averaged $3,155.4 million for the current
4-month period, a level about 21 percent above the
$2,616.0 million average reported for the preceding
4-month period. (Users should note that the 4-month
period November 1968 February 1969 includes a period
of reduced activity resulting from the dock strike at
East and Gulf coast ports which began on December 20,
1968, and ended at different ports on different dates
between February 14 and April 2, 1969.)

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 for seasonal change and ex-
cluding Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments, decreased from $3,543.3 million in May to
$3.099.9 million in June. With Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments included, exports de-
creased from $3,594.8 million in May to $3.170.0
million in June. Unadjusted general imports amounted
to $3,216.2 million in June compared to $3,236.5 million
in May.

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 withdrawals
from warehouses for consumption.

The dollar value. shown in the import statistics is
defined generally a..the market value in tile 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 based on the filing data
of the import entry or warehouse withdrawal document. 1
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 foreign origin 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).
2With minor exceptions, the date of export for ship-
ments other than by mail is the date when the shipment
leaves the United States, or, in the 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.

*In recompiling the MGD for these aggregate time series under the new method for seasonal adjustment announced
with the releases of data for March 1969, we have found that for overall exports and the merchandise trade balance
the MOD is 6-term rather than the 4-term average applied previously.
