EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE: APRIL 1970


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted April 1970 export
total of $3,449.7 million, excluding Department of Defense
(DODI Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments, and a seasonally adjusted general import total
for April of $3,247.5 million. Comparable seasonally
adjusted totals for March were $3,379.0 million for
exports and $3,213.6 million for imports.' The Bureau
noted that the April seasonally adjusted export total is
the second highest such total on record being exceeded
only by the record high February 1970 total of $3,628.4
million. Seasonally adjusted imports for April were at
a level slightly above the monthly average of $3,241."

Imports averaged $3,241.7 million for thecurrent 4-month
period, about 4 percent higher than the $.3,124.4 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. IUnlike the overall
total, the commodity components for exports exclude
foreign merchandise and include DOD Military Assistance

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 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



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 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.

tistics coverage, valuation, etc., is contained in the follow-

'Schedule 8 section and selected division descriptions are as follows:
0. Fooa 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 iegetabie oils and fats 8. Miscellaneous manufactured articles, n.e.c.
5. Chemicals 9. Commodities and transactions not classified according to kind
6. ManufacIur-d goons classified chiefly by material
'SeaEonally a.justed rFgures for section 7 may differ slightly from the sum of divisions 71, 72, and 73 since each is independently adjusted.
'Data reflect adljstments 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 torbls in tables I and 2 were developed independently.
'In the absence of a-monatrable seasonal patterns for this section, no seasonal adjustment factors have been applied to date.
sAs a result of the change, effective Octtber 1969, in the category "Low-value shipments" (reflected in Schedule B section 9) which included
eCltr..ated data for shipments valued unoer ?i00 prior to October and now includes shipments valued $250 and under, the statistics for the
individual comnodt v sections and selected divisions reflect some additional undercounting.
