The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted July 1969 export
total of $3.171.5 million, excluding Department of Defense
(DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments,
and a seasonally adjusted general import total for July
of $3.066.3 million. (The Bureau stated that the July ex-
port figures include about $55 million appearing on June
documents which were received too late to be included in
the June statistics, but exclude about $50 million re-
presenting July declarations which were received too
late to be included in the July statistics. The late July
documents will be included in the August statistics.
Remedial steps have been taken to correct the situation
concerning the delay in the transmittal of the export
documents to the Bureau.)' 2 The Bureau also noted that
the seasonally adjusted export and import totals for July
represent the lowest such totals recorded for either since
March 1969.

For the first 7 months of 1969, exports on a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $35,343 million
(about 4 percent above the calendar year 1968 total of
$34,063 million). Imports were at an annual rate of
$34,905 million (about 5 percent above the calendar year
1968 total of $33,226 million). For the 4-month period,
April-July 1969. seasonally adjusted exports averaged
$3,257.7 million per month, a level about 23 percent
above the $2,640.9 million average reported for the


MERCHANT DE /k


preceding 4-mo 9dDeci 968-March 1969.
Imports averaged 5 the current 4-month
period, a level about cent above the $2,640.4
million average reported for the preceding 4-month
period. (Users should note that the 4-month period
December 1968-March 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 excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, de-
creased from $3.099.9 million in June to $2.997.9
million in July. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included, exports decreased from
$3,170.0 million In June to $3.045.6 million in July.
Unadjusted general imports amounted to $3,153.9million
in July compared to $3,216.2 million in June.

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 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 based on 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 foreignoriginwhich 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 a 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 andCountry; FT410, 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.

1For shipments by vessel, merchar.dise 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 where, tre 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.

"GUIDE TO FOREIGN TRADE STATISTICS 1969 "
Why delve through thousands of facts concerning foreign trade when there's
a quick way to find the exact data you need in the "Guide to Foreign Trade
Statistics 1969." The foreign trade statistics program, conducted by the
Bureau of the Census, involves the compilation and dissemination of a myriad
of data relating to the imports and exports of the United States. These
statistics are designed to serve the needs of both Government and
non-Government users who have wide ranges of interests and hundreds of
different reasons to require varied types of foreign trade data. The
"Guide", therefore, includes the listings of data presented in many dif-
ferent arrangements and released in the form of reports available by
subscription and in reports and machine tabulations offered for public
reference use. Up-to-date reports and special tabulations listed show current
plans for the release of foreign trade statistical data through 1969.
