SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 900 A pril I May 27, 1968

EXPORT AND IMPORT ME E TR

(This release supersedes reports FT 900-E and 900-1, previouslyrer separately, and includes for the
first time selected commodity section and division totals adjusted for seasonal and working day variations.)


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today a seasonally adjusted April 1968 export
total of $2,888.5 million, excluding Department of De-
fense (D.O.D.) Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid
shipments; and a seasonally adjusted general import
total of $2,640.5 million.12 Comparable totals for March
1968 are $2,454.7 million for exports and $2,612.4
million for imports. Both the export and import
seasonally adjusted totals for April are the highest on
record. The previous high for exports was S2,"S4.7
million and the previous high for imports was $2,615.4
million, each recorded in January 1968. The Bureau
noted, however, that although both the adjusted and
unadjusted export and import totals for April were at
record levels, the figures may reflect above normal
export and import activity at the port of New York
following the settlement of the eleven day longshoremen's
strike there on March 29. (About one fourth of all
exports and one third of all imports are handled through
this port.) The Bureau also stated that it does not have
adequate information to measure precisely the effect of
the above strike on the statistics.

For the first four months of 1968, exports on a
seasonally adjusted basis were at an annual rate of
$32,703 million while imports were at an annual rate
of $31,411 million. This represents an increase in ex-
ports of about 6 percent over the calendar year 1967
total of $30,Q42 million and an increase in imports of
about 1' percent over the calendar year 1967 total of
$26,816 million.


For the 4-month period January 1968-April 1968,
exports averaged $2,725.3 million per month, a level
about 6 percent higher than the $2,582.8 million average
reported for the preceding 4-month period September-
December 1967. Imports averaged $2,617.6 million
per month for the current 4-month period, a level about
12 percent higher than the $2,327.6 million average
reported for the preceding 4-month period.


Seasonally adjusted export and import totals for
selected Schedule A and Schedule 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 D.O.D. Military
Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments.)


As noted above, the unadjusted export and import
totals for April were also at record levels. April
exports, excluding Military Assistance Program Grant-
Aid shipments were valued at $2,944.2 million ($2,639.1
million in March); the April total including Military
Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments was $2,983.4
million ($2,673.8 million in March). The previous highs
for these categories of exports were $2,812.9 million and
$2,872.0 million, respectively, 'which were recorded in
December 1967. Unadjusted general imports during
April were valued at $2,755.3 million, compared to
$2,558.2 million in March and $2,735.2million in January
1968, the previous high.
