SUMMARY REPORT
FT 986


FOR RELEASE
July 15, 1969


CUSTOMS DISTRICT BY CONTINENT


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 calendar year 1967. A complete list of the
customs districts and ports currently in effect appears
in the January 1, 1967 edition of Schedule D, Code Clas-
sification of United States Customs Districts and Ports.

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 throughU.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 statistics shown for exports to Canada represent
fully compiled data for shipments individually valued
$2,000 and over combined with estimated data for
shipments valued $100-$1,999 based on a 10-percent
sample of such shipments. The statistics shown for
exports to countries other than Canada represent
fully compiled data for shipments individually valued
$500 and over combined with estimated data for ship-
ments valued $100-$499 based on a 50-percent sample
of such shipments. Effective with the statistics for
January 1967, estimated shipping weight and value data
are also shown for shipments valued under $100. These
estimates are not included in the data shown for individ-
ual customs districts.


Since the export figures shown include estimates based
on a sample of low-valued shipments, they are subject to
some degree of sampling variability. The following is a
rough guide to the general level of sampling variability
(on a 2 chances out of 3 basis) of value totals. Usually,
the higher value figures will have the lower percent
sampling errors. Detailed information on the sampling
variability of individual figures is available upon request.

Imports

Ihesc statistics represent general imports, which are
a combination of imports for immediate consumption


Swi; ? d and tre into bounded warehouses. The statistics
S., o include government a well as nongovernment shipments
--* e, of merchandise by air from foreign countries to the
*/ united States. However, American goods returned by
r ar the 1'.S Armed Forces for their own use are excluded.
o.er L'U.. trade with Puerto Rico and with U.S. possessions
and trade between L'.S. possessions are w included in
this report, but imports into Puerto Rico from foreign
. countries are considered to be L'.S. imports and are
included. Merchandise shipped through the L'ntedStates
.45 .5 in transit from one foreign country to another, when
documented as sch through L'.S. Customs, is not re-
.25 .75 ported as imports and is excluded from the data own
in this report. (Foreign merchandise that entered
a-' r. the United States as an import and is subsequently re-
exported is not treated as in-transit merchandise and is
included in this report.i Imports of household and
personal effects, imports by mal and parcel post, and
a. 1:.' imports of airplanes under their own power are n
included.


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 effective with the January 1968
statistics, a change from the 5-percent sample in effect
during 1967. Separate shipping weight and value esti-
mates 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. 'alue totals of 5500,000 and over will
generally have a sampling variability of less than 3
percent; value totals of under 5500.000 will generally
have a sampling variability of less than 550.000.
