FOR RELEASE-

EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE: JANUARY 1970


The Bureau of the Cen u s, Department of Commerce,
announced today\ that during January 1970, seasonally
adjusted exports, excluding Department of Defense (DOD)
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments
amounted to $3,305.2 million and that January general
imports, also on a seasonally adjusted basis, totaled
$3,249.7 million. Comparable figures for December
1969 were $3,238.6 million for exports and $3,007.1
million for imports.1 2 January 1970 represents the llth
successive month for exports and the 10tI successive
month for imports that the monthly seasonally adjusted
trade figures (exports and imports) have equaled or ex-
ceeded $3.0 billion.

For the 4-month period, October 1969-January 1970,
seasonally adjusted exports averaged $3,318.2 million,
a level about one and one-half percent higher than the
average of $3,269.7 million reported for the preceding
4-month period, June-September 1969. Imports averaged
$3,1"3.1 million for the period October 1169-January


19'0, about 2 percent higher than the average of $3,121.7
million 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 DOD Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments.)


Exports, unadjusted for seasonal change and ex-
cluding Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments, decreased from $3,362.6 million in December
1969 to $3,238.0 million in January 1970. With Military
Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments included,
January exports were valued at $3,298.4 million as
compared to $3,421.2 million for December 1969.
Unadjusted general imports amounted to $3,125.5million
in January 1970 and 53,24".4 million in December 1969.

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 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.


RP\ sons to the-Staristics

KRistons are carried into the statistics on periodic
basic k Data for I0.9 and 1970 appearing in the 1970
monthly. res Pof tn'qr port are presented as follows:

10QO Statis cs

a. January through November L 0 issues: figures
are as originally issued, except as noted below.

b. December 1970 issue: figures reflect revisions
for prior months of the year issued with December
1970 statistics.

1969 Statistics

a. January through May 1970 issues: figures reflect
revisions issued with December 1969 statistics or
earlier.

b. June through December 1970 issues: figures
reflect revisions to 1969 data issued with June
1970 statistics.

In addition to the revisions uhich 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 tune that the regular
revisions are carried, the correction is made and so
noted in this report.

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

1For shipments by vessel, merchanai-se is not included
in the statistics prior to the date or formal entrance :.r
the vessel (i.e., the date of the inward .:ultoms manifest
for the vessel).
2With minor exceptions, the date f exsFrt for ship-
ments other than by mail is the date when the 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 msil shipments, the
date of export is considered to be te dat. of maiLing.

'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
'Seasonally adjusted figures for section 7 may differ slightly from the sum of divisions 71, 72, and 73 since each is independently adjusted.
'Data reflect adjustments for seasonal and working-day variation and do not necessarily add to annual unadjusted totals. The adjusted data
reflect seasonal factors which became effective with March 1969 statistics. See note on front page. 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.
SAs a result of the change, effective October 1969, in the category "Low-value shipments" (reflected in Schedule B section 9) which included
estimated data for shipments valued under $100 prior to October and now includes shipments valued $250 and under, the statistics for the
individual commodity sections and selected divisions reflect some additional undercounting.
