EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that during calendar year 1969, U.S.
exports of domestic and foreign merchandise, excluding
Department of Defense (DOD) Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments, and unadjusted for
seasonal change were valued at $37,314.4 million, an
increase of about 10 percent over the calendar year
1968 total of $34.062 S million General imports for
the calendar year were valued at $36.i51l S million,
an increase of about 9 percent over the comparable 1968
total of $33.226.3 million.

During December l6Q. exports of domestic and foreign
merchandise, excluding Department of Defense IDOUD'
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, on
a seasonally adjusted basis were valued at $3,238.6
million; seasonally adjusted general imports were valued
at $3.007 I million Comparable figuresforNovember
were $3.367 I million for exports and $3.213 7 million
for imports

For the 4-month period September-December 1969,
exports on a seasonally adjusted basis averaged $3.323 4
million per month, a level about 2 percent above the
$3.262 2 million average reported for the preceding
4-month period May-August 1969. Imports averaged
$3.124 4 million for the current 4-month period, a level
about 2 percent below the $3.177 0 million average
reported 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. (Unlike the
overall total, the commodity components for exports
exclude foreign merchandise and include Department
of Defense (DOD) Military Assistance ProgramGrant-Aid
shipments.)

Exports unadjusted and excluding Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments decreased from $3,415.2
million in November to $3,362.6 million in December.
With Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments
included, exports decreased from $3,471.2 million in
November to $3,421.2 million in December. Unadjusted
general imports amounted to $3,247.4 million in December
compared to $2,989.1 million in November.

U.S. annual export totals, including Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments for the 10 year period
1960 through 1969 are as follows: 1960--$20.6 billion;
1961--$21.0 billion; 1962--$21.7 billion; 1963--$23.3
billion; 1964--$26.5 billion; 1%5-- $2-.5 billion; 1966--
$30.3 billion; 1967--$31.5 billion; 1968--$34.6 billion;
and 1969--$38.0 billion. Annual general import totals
for the same time span are as follows: 1960--$15.0
billion; 1961--$14.7 billion; 1962--$16.4 billion; 1963--
$17.1 billion; 1964--$18.7 billion; 1965--$21.4 billion;
1966--$25.5 billion; 1967--$26.8 billion; .1968--$33.2

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS
.0


Import Statistics

General imports are a combination of entries for
immediate consumption and entries into bonded ware-
houses. Imports for consumption are a combingion 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.

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, GeneralandConsumption, 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.

IFor 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 srdp-
ments other than by mail is the date when the Enipment
leaves the United States, or, in the case of Jessel 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 miilirg.

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.
4In the absence of demonstrable seasonal patterns for this section, no seasonal adjustment factors have been applied to date.

estimated data for shipments valued under $100 .r to October and now includes shipments L _, .: .* and under, the statistics for the
individual commodity sections and selected divisions reflect some additional undercounting.
