EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE


The Bureau of the Census. Department of Commerce.
announced today a seasonally adjusted November i96'
export total of $3,367 1 million, excluding Department
of Defense (DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-
Aid shipments. and a seasonally adjusted general import
total for November of $3.2137 million Comparable
seasonally adjusted totals for October were $3,368 9
million for exports and $3,221 9 million for imports '
The Bureau noted that the November seasonally adjusted
export total is the third highest total on record and
represents the fifth time this year where the total
exceeds $3 3 billion. November represents the eighth
consecutive month in 1969 that seasonally adjusted
imports have exceeded $3 0 billion (The detailed
figures appearing in table 5 of this report and in all
other November import reports are undercounted by
about $44 million representing imports of automotive
products fromCanada However. the seasonally adjusted
and unadjusted overall totals appearing in this text and
In tables 1 and 3 of this report reflect the inclusion of
these imports. Data on these imports will be reflected
in the cumulative statistics in the December reports.)


For the first 1 months of 1969, exportson a season-
ally adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $37,160
million (about 9 percent above the calendar year 1968
total of $34,063 million) Imports wvre at an annual


rate of $36.035 million about 8 percent above the
calendar year 1968 total of $33.226 million For the
4-month period. August-November 1969, seasonally
adjusted exports averaged $3.361 8 million per month.
a level about 3 percent above the $3,25" million
average reported for the preceding 4-month period
April-Jul)y 1969 Imports averaged $3,167 million
for the current 4-month period slightly below the
average of $3."16 8 million for the preceding 4-month
period

Seasonally adjusted export and import totals for
selected Schedule A and B commodity sections and
divisions are shown in tables 4 and 5 tUniike 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 ProgramCrant-Aid ship-

$3.415.2 million in November. With Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments included, exports
decreased from $3.625 5 million in October to $3.4"1.2

EXPLANATION OF STA-TIST ICS


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 roughly for thatof 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 tdt Statistics

iRevisions are carriedjnto the statistics on a periodic
bass. ; Data for 1968-an969 appearing in the 1969
monthly issues .of. thfs report are presented as follows:

1969 Statistics

a. January through November 1969 issues: figures
are as originally issued, except asnotedbelow.

b. December 1969 issue: figures reflect revisions
for prior months of the year issuedwith December
1969 statistics.

1968 Statistics

a. January through M.a) 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.
