EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE: MARCH 1970


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted March 1970 export
total of $3,379.0 million, excluding Department of Defense
(DODI Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments, and a seasonally adjusted general import total
for March of $3,213.6 million. Comparable seasonally
adjusted totals for February were $3,628.4 million for
exports and $3,255.4 million for imports.' 2 The Bureau
noted that although the March seasonally adjusted export
total is below the record high February figure (quoted
above), it is the second highest such total on record.
During March, seasonally adjusted imports were at the
lowest level recorded so far this year.

For the first 3 months of 1970, exports on a seasonally
adjusted basis were at an annual rate of $41,250 million
(about 10 percent above the calendar year 1969 total of
$37,314 million). Imports were at an annual rate of
$38,877 million (about 8 percent above the calendar year
1969 total of $36,052 million). For the 4-month period
December 1969-March 1970, seasonally adjusted exports
averaged $3,387.8 million per month, a level about one
percent above the $3,356.9 million average reported for


the preceding 4-month period August-November 1969.
Imports averaged $3,181.6 million for the current 4-
month period, or less than one percent above the $3,167.6
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 DOD Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments.)

Exports, unadjusted for seasonal change and excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments, in-
creased from $3,388.2 million in February to $3,581.1
million in March. With Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments included, March exports were
valued at $3,623.4 million as compared to $3,432.1
million for February. Unadjusted general imports
amounted to $3,385.9 million in March and $2,944.3
million in February.

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. 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 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 whichhave 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



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).


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 andCountry; 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 of 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. The adjusted data for
1969 and 1970 reflect seasonal adjustment factors introduced in 1969. See footnote 1 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.
AAs 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.

January 1969 to March 1970

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