SUMMARY REPORT
FT 986


FOR RELEASE
February 13, 1970


COVERAGE


This report presents statistics on U.S. exports and
imports by air in U.S. customs district by continent
arrangement. Data have been compiled from Shipper's
Export Declarations (Commerce Form 7525-V) and
import entries during the regular processing of statis-
tical data on foreign trade shipments. The customs
districts shown in this report are those having combined
exports and imports by air valued at $2 million or more
during the preceding calendar year. A complete list of
customs districts and ports is presented in Schedule D,
Code Classification of United States Customs Districts
and Ports, January 1, 1967 edition, as amended.

Exports

These statistics represent exports of domestic and
foreign merchandise combined and include government
and nongovernment shipments of merchandise by air
from the United States to foreign countries. The
statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense
Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments,
shipments for economic assistance under the Foreign
Assistance Act, and shipments of agricultural com-
modities under P.L. 480 (The Trade Development and
Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws.
Shipments to U.S. Armed Forces and diplomatic missions
abroad for their own use are not included in the export
statistics. U.S. trade with Puerto Rico and U.S.
possessions and trade between U.S. possessions are not
included in this report, but exports from Puerto Rico to
foreign countries are included as a part of the U.S.
export statistics. Merchandise shipped through' the
United States in transit from one foreign country to
another, when documented as such through U.S. Customs,
is excluded. (Foreign merchandise that has entered the
United States as an import and is subsequently reexported
is not treated as in-transit merchandise, and is included
in this report.) The figures in this report exclude ex-
ports of household and personal effects, shipments by


mail and parcel post, and shipments of airplanes under
their own power.

For security reasons, certain commodities are desig-
nated as Special Category commodities, for which
security regulations place restrictions upon the export
information that may be released. The data shown in
this report for individual customs districts and conti-
nents exclude exports of Special Category commodities,
but overall shipping weight and value totals for Special
Category commodities are shown. Further information
and a list of Special Category commodities may be ob-
tained from the Bureau of the Census.

The export statistics reflect fully compiled data for
shipments to Canada individually valued at $2,000 and
over and shipments to countries other than Canada
individually valued at $500 and over. Data on shipments
to Canada valued $251-$1,999 are estimated from a
10-percent sample and data on shipments to other
countries valued $251-$499 are estimated from a 50-
percent sample, effective with the statistics for October
1969. Shipping weight and value data are also estimated
for shipments valued under $251. These estimates are
not included in the data shown for individual customs
districts. (Prior to October 1969, shipments to Canada
valued $100-$1,999 and shipments to other countries
valued $100-$499 were sampled. Estimated data on
shipments valued under $100 were shown, but not
distributed by customs district.)

Since the export figure estimates based
on a sample of low-va~ '~ 1I h re subject to
some degree of sa owing is a
rough guide to the 1 level of sarfip ariability
(on a 2 chances basis) of value to~ Usually,
the higher value es will have t percent

Imports

Ihr;. statistics represent general imports, whichare
a combination of imports for immediate consumption


The statistics shown for individual customs districts
represent fully compiled data for shipments valued $251
and over. Data for shipments valued under $251, re-
ported on formal and informal entries (informal entries
generally contain items valued under $251), are estimated
from a I-percent sample. Separate shipping weight and
value estimates for shipments valued under $251 are
shown. The shipping weight data are estimated from the
values on the basis of constants that have been derived
from an observation of the value-weight relationships
In past periods.



Since the statistics showing total value of imports
by all carriers include sample estimates, they are
subject to sampling variability. In general, the
higher value figures will have the lower percent
sampling errors. Value totals of S500,000 and over wiU
generally have a sampling variability of less than 3
percent; value totals of under $500,000 will generally
have a sampling variability of less than $50,000.
