IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE


The Bureau of the C H W IaPIrt of Commerce,
announced today a season ed September 1969
export total of $3,325.9 million, excluding Department of
Defense (DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid
shipments, and a seasonally adjusted general import total
for Septemberof$3,055.0million. Comparable seasonally
adjusted totals for August were $3,385.1 million for
exports and $3,180.2 million for imports.1 2 The Bureau
stated that the September seasonally adjusted export
total is the third highest total on record and is exceeded
only by the record high August 1969 figure (quoted aboveI
and the April 1969 total of $3,354.7 million. The Bureau
noted that the August total includes about $50 million
representing July export declarations which were re-
ceived too late to be included in the July statistics,
and that the April total probably reflected a step-up
of vessel activity at East and Gulf Coast ports following
the settlement of the dock strike. Although the seasonally
adjusted import total for September is the lowest
figure recorded since March 1969, September represents
the sixth consecutive month during which imports have
exceeded $3.0 billion.


For the first 9 months of 1969, exportson a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $36,437 million
(about 7 percent above the calendar year 1968 total of
$34,063 million). Imports were at an annual rate of
$35,462 million (about 7 percent above the calendar year
1968 total of $33,226 million). For the 4-month period,


June-September 1069, seasonally adjusted exports aver-
aged $3,2"'3.8 million per month, a level about 8 percent
above the $3,03-.8 million average reported for the
preceding 4-month period February-May 1969. Imports
averaged $3,122.3 million for thecurrent 4-monthperiod,
a level about 3 percent above the $3,022.3 million average
reported for the preceding 4-month period. (Users
should note that the 4-month period February-May 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) Miliary Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments.)

Exports, unadjusted for seasonal change and excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, de-
creased from $3,165.4 million in August to $3,112.7
million in September. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included, exports decreased from
$3,227.3 million in August to $3,186.0 million in Sep-
tember. Unadjusted general imports amounted to $3,131."
million in September compared to $2,909.6 million
in August.

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. 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.

Foreign Trade Statistics

Additional information regarding coverage, valuation,
etc., is contained in the following publications: Report

FT 135, U.S. Imports, General and Consumption, Schedule
A Commodity andCountry; 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.

1For shipments by vessel, merchard ise is ric.t in :luded
in the statistics prior to the date of forumil entrance of
the vessel (i.e., the date of the inward :ust.omE manifest
for the vessel).
2With minor exceptions, the date or export for ship-
ments other than by mail is the date when the shipment
leaves the United States, or, in the caFe cof vessel or
air snipmente, the date when the carrier departs ior is
cleared) from the port of export. For mail -nripments, the
date of e-1port is considered to be the date of mailing.

LData reflect adjustments for seasonal and working-day variation and do not necessarily add to annual unadjusted totals. The adjusted
totals also reflect new seasonal adjustment factors which became effective with the March 1969 statistics.
2Data differ from those released in Department of Defense reports because of a difference in statistical definitions. For a further explana-

'Schedule B section and selected division descriptions are as follows:
0. Food and live animals 7. Machinery and transport equipment
1. Beverages and tobacco 71. Machinery, other than electric
2. Crude materials, inedible, except fuels 72. Electrical machinery, apparatus, and appliances
3. Mineral fuels, lubricants, and related materials 73. Transport equipment
4. Animal and vegetable oils and fats 8. Miscellaneous manufactured articles, n.e.c.
5. Chemicals 9. Commodities and transactions not classified according to kind
6. Manufactured goods classified chiefly by material
2Seasonally adjusted figures for section 7 may differ slightly from the sum of divisions 71, 72, and 73 since each is independently adjusted.
3Data reflect adjustments for seasonal and working-day variation and do not necessarily add to annual unadjusted totals. The adjusted data
also reflect new seasonal factors which became effective with the March 1969 statistics. The adjusted section totals in this table and similar
overall monthly totals in tables 1 and 2 were developed independently.
In the absence of demonstrable seasonal patterns for this section, no seasonal adjustment factors have been applied to date.
