FOR RELEASE:
August 25, 1970


EXPORT AND IMPORT MERCHANDISE TRADE: JULY 1970


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce.
announced today a seasonally adjusted July 1970 export
total of $3,683.0 million, excludingDepartmentof Defense
tDOD) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid ship-
ments, and a seasonally adjusted general import total
for July of $3,241.7 million. Comparable seasonally
adjusted totals for June were $3,776.0 million for
exports and $3,309.6 million for imports.' 2


The Bureau noted that although July seasonally adjusted
exports are at a level slightly lower than the record-
high figure reported in June (quoted above), July is the
third successive month and the fourth month this year
in which exports have exceeded $3.6 billion. The import
total for July is the lowest such figure recorded since
March of this year.


Based on seasonally adjusted figures, the July trade
surplus' was $441.3 million. The net total surplus
for the first 7 months of this year is $2,037.7 million.

For the first 7 months of 1970, export
seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual fa
$42,714 million (about 14 percent above th calendar


year 1969 total of $37,332 million). Imports were at
an annual rate of $39,221 million (about 9 percent
above the calendar year 1969 total of $36,043 million).
For the 4-month period ..pril-July 1970, seasonally
adjusted exports averaged 53,651.0 million per month,
a level about 8 percent above the preceding 4-month
period December 1969-March 1970. Imports averaged
$3,289.9 million for the current 4-month period, about
3 percent higher than the $3,181.2 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 Mlitar Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments.)

E exports, unadjusted for seasonal change and excluding
Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments,
decreased from $3,719.0 million in June to $3,549.3
in July. With Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid
S ments included, July exports were valued at i3,591.9
S as compared to $3,770.7 million in June. Unad-
rneral imports amounted to $3,312.0 million in
Jut 3,504.2 million in June.

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 date
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 foreignoriginwhichhave 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, merchandi-e is not iric lded
in the statistics prior to the date of normal entrance :f
the vessel (i.e., the date of the ;nwrrd ,:ust.r- manil'est
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 issuedwith 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.

'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
aimDlar overall monthly totals in tables 1 and 2 were developed independently.
aIn the absence of demonstrable seasonal patterns for this section, no seasonal adjustment factors have been applied to date.
eAs 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 July 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)
