The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce
announced today a seasonally adjusted October 1069
export total of $3.37S 5 million excluding Department
of Defense (DOD) Military AssisLance Program Grant-
Aid shipments, and a seasonally adjusted general import
total for October of $3.221 9 million Comparable
seasonally adjusted totals for September were $3.325 Q
million for exports and $3.055 0 million for imports 12
The Bureau stated that the October seasonally adjusted
export total is the second highest total on record and
is exceeded only by the Nugust 1969 total of $3.385 1
million However, as indicated earlier, the August
total includes about $50 million representing July ex-
port declarations which were received too late to be
included in the July statistics The seasonally adjusted
import total for October is also near a record high
level being exceeded only by the record figure of
$3.2"6 I million reported in May 1969

For the first 10monthsof IQ6,. exports on a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $36.848 million
(about 8 percent above the calendar year 1968 total ot
$34.063 million) Imports were at an annual rate of
$35,782 million (about 8 percent above the calendar year
1968 total of $33 226 million). For the 4-month period,


July-October 1069. seasonally adjusted exports averaged
$3.315 3 million per month, a level about 2 percent above
the 53.263 8 million average reported for the preceding
4-month period .March-June 1069 Imports averaged
$'5.130 9 million for the current 4-month period, a level
slightly less than one percent below the $3.155 4 million
average reported for the preceding 4-month period

Seasonally adjusted export and import totals for
selected Schedule and B commodity sections and
divisions are shown in tables 4 and 5. ILinlike the
overall total, the commodity components for exports
exclude foreign merchandise and include Department
of Defense iDD) .hlitary assistance Program C rant-

Exports, unadjusted for seasonal change and ex-
cluding Military Assistance Program Grant-.Ad ship-
ments. increased from 53.112 million in September

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.
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 rough] l for that of the following
month.

Export Statistics

Exportspf domestic merchandise include commodities
which are grown, produced, or manufactured in the United
States, and commodities of foreign originwhich 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 L.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.

xFor shipments by vessel, merchandise is not included
in the statiEtlcs prior to the date of formal entrance ol
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 Urnted States, or, in the case of vessel ..r
air shipments, the date when the carrier departs lor is
cleared) fror the port of export. For mail shipments, the
date of export is considered to be the date of mailirg.
