EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE: FEBRUARY 1970


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted February 1970
export total of $3.628 4 million, excluding Department of
Defense (DOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid
shipments, and a seasonally adjusted general import total
for February of $3.255 9 million Comparable seasonally
adjusted totals for January were $3.305 2 million for
exports and $3.249 7 million for imports The February
seasonally adjusted export total is the highest such total
ever recorded and exceeds the previous high of $3,372.7
million (reported in August 19691 by more than $250
million. February is the llth successive month that
imports have exceeded the $3 0 billion level and also the
month showing the highest seasonally adjusted import
total since the May 1969 figure of $3.276 3 million was
reported.

For the 4-month period, November 19tQ'-Fe
1970. seasonally adjusted exports averaged
million per month, a level about 2 percent e
$3.307 3 million average reported for the prel g 4-


month period July-October 1969. Imports averaged
$3,181.6 million for the current 4-month period, a level
about 2 percent above the $3,130.8 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 4and 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 excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, in-
creased from $3,238.0 million in January to $3,388.2
million in February. With Military Assistance Program
id shipments included, February exports were

2 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 thd 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 thatofthe 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



'For 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).


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 1969 and 1970 appearing in the 1970
monthly issues of this report are presented as follows:

1970 Statistics

a. January through November 1970 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 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, 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.

2With minor exceptions, the date cf export 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 mail shipments, the
date of export is considered to be the date 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. rr,. a.au- d sata
reflect seasonal factors which became effective with March 1969 statistics. See note on front page. The adjusted section ( .1 i: rr.., r ale
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.










Table 5. U.S. General Imports--Schedule A Sections, Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted by Month:
January 1969 to February 1970

(In millions of dollars. Includes data on silver ore, base bullion, and refined bullion. Unadjusted totals represent sum of unro.una6d
figures hence may vary slightly from sum of rounded amounts)
