During the period January-June 1956 the statistics on export :ihipm-r. r l.me:.i and :' r-.mercha se ndi-
vidually valued at $100-$99 are estimated on the basis of a 10 percent ,amit- of such hipments. rig .55 n
beginning with July 1956 the export shipments of domestic and re-ig r chandrise Irnd duan:y valued at fi a-. 4
are estimated on the basis of a 10 percent sample of such shipments. A discusion of the low-value export ti.pmwn:,
in the vessel statistic is contained in the Noveber 1953 and Fetruary 1956 issues of the For-eign Trade Starltiti..
Motes.
effective with statistics for January lo., procedures for estimaiing the sr.'p;inr weight and value of
im.rort shipnts of under 2,000 pounds ith a value of $100 or more were also Instit ted, based on a 2 percent ra-
doa sample of import ormnts. A discussion of the under i, *3 pound shipping eight port s n r vessel
statistics is contained in the March 195., issue of toreiln Trade tatltistLc Notes.
The waterbone statistics presented in the monthly Issuea u~ this report for 19'5h excluded the low-valued ex-
ports of domestic and foreign merchandise and non-Department of Defense shipments of speciall -atr'ery" coodltes
and import shipments of under 2000 pounds regardless of value as well as shipments valued at less than $l 4 repard-
,lesa of shipping weight. In order to provide users of the vessel statistics with a series of iccparable annua data
ona calendar year basis, this report shows in addition to the detail for the fully compilt-d erp rt an import
shipments, total figures (combining the sample estimate of the low-value export shipments and the less than ', ..
pound import hipments of $100 or more in value with the complete coverage sepents for exports and imports) on a
United States port level and trade area level. These total figures for 1956, which include the estates, are co-
parable to the calendar year data shovn for prior years.
Vessel export figures in this report, shown in columns 5, 10, 16 and 19 of table 1 and in table A, represent
exports of domestic and foreign merchandise laden at the United States Customs area (continental United 'tatis,
Puerto Rico and the Territories of Alaska and Hawaii) for shipment to foreign countries and include export shipmnts
to United States civilian government agencies and non-Department of Defense controlled 'orelgn aid program shipente
Described below. Excluded from these figures are shipments to the United States armed forces abroad of supplies
ad equipment for their own use as well as the other types of shipments described below for which information sl
shon in separate colus in table 1.
Department of Defense controlled and "special category" figures, shown in columns 7 and 12 of table 1 of this
report cover consolidated data for the following types of shipments:
1. Vessel export shipments of Department of Defense controlled cargo under special foreign aid programs, i.e.,
Foreign Operations Administration, Army Civilian Supply, etc., made aboard United States fla vessels such as
Army-Navy transports or commercial vessels chartered by the Department of Defense under tiae, voyae and space
charter arrangements and including "special category" commodities without distinction.
2. Vessel export shipments of "special category" commodities not controlled by the Department of De'ense for which
detailed information cannot be sown separately because of security reasons. For an erplanaton and list of
"special category" coodities and their presentation in foreign trade satitics aee the January 1954 issue
of Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.
Only shipping weight data in terms of United States port or coastal district of lading are show for these
classes of shipments since information on the dollar value of exports of Department of Defense controlled cargr, i
not available at this level of detail. Consequently, the total value figure shown in column 15 and IS of table 1
for dry cargo and tanker shipments in that order correspond to the shipping weight figures sown in colmns 4 and 9,
respectively, of the sa table.
Vessel import figures, shown in column 4, 7, 12 and 15 of table 2 and in table 4 of this report, are general
imports ad represent the total of imports for immdiate consumption plus entries into custom- bonded storage and
manufacturLng warehouses ade at the United States Customs area from foreign countries. Vessel Import figures ex
elude American goods returned by the Uited States armed forces for their own use, mport shipments on Arm or Navy
transports, and shipments covered by informal entrees.
The following types of hi nt are excluded from both the vessel export and iport data: 1) All shipm-'nta
of under $100 In value, regardless of shipping weight; (2) shipments of household and personal effects; 'i ohlp-
ment by mail and parcel post, and (4) ahlpments of vessels under own power and afloat. Trade between the
United States and its Territories and Possessions and trade between the Territories and Poasensiann are not reported
as United States exports and imports.
Merchandise shipped in bond through the Uited States in transit from on foreign country to another without
having been entered as an import is not included in any of the figures In the colu previously referred t imported
merchandise cleared through cuutome and subsequently re-exported is included in both the import and export statistics).
Separate informtlon for the watrborne portion of the in-transit trade i terw of ihlpping weight nd dollar val
Is presented in this report in tables 1 and 2. Columns 6, 11, "1, and 20 of table 1 reflect In-tranit merchandise
laden aboard vessels at United States ports, while column 8, U and 16 of table 2 reflect uch merhndise unladen
fro vessels. The waterborne outbound and inbound in-traniat statistics include: (1) foreign merchandise transferred
from on vessel to another in the United States port of arrival and shipped to a foreign country wuitnut bring

released from customs custody in the United States; and (2) foreign merchandise arriving by vessel at one United
States port, shipped through the United States under customs bond, and leaving the United States by vessel from a
port other than that at which it arrived. In addition, the waterborne outbound in-transit statistics also include
(1) foreign merchandise withdrawn from a general order warehouse for immediate export by vessel or for transportation
and export by vessel (such merchandise was not recorded as an import when it entered the warehouse), and (2) foreign
merchandise shipped by vessel from a United States Foreign Trade Zone to a foreign country (such merchandise is de-
posited in the Foreign Trade Zone without being entered as an import). Any inbound or outbound in-transit merchan-
dise moving by methods of transportation other than vessel is excluded from the in-transit statistics. Thus, in-
transit merchandise arriving at the United States by vessel and leaving by some other method of transportation is in-
cluded in the inbound data only. On the other hand, in-transit merchandise arriving by other than waterborne trans-
portation and laden aboard vessels upon departure is included in the outbound statistics but not in the inbound data.
The inbound and outbound segments, therefore, do not counterbalance one another and are complementary only insofar
as they involve merchandise carried by vessels to and from the United States. For a more detailed discussion of the
in-transit trade statistics and the types of shipments excluded from these data see the February 1953 issue of the
Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.
All types of outbound vessel shipments in table 1 are credited to the coastal districts, customs districts, and
ports at which the merchandise was laden. All types of inbound vessel shipments in table 2 are credited to the
coastal districts, customs districts, and ports at which merchandise was unladen.,In the case of vessel general
imports this is not necessarily the same as the customs district in which the goods were entered into warehouse or
entered for .immediate consumption.
Vessel exports in table 3 are credited to the foreign trade areas at which the merchandise was unladen. Vessel
imports in table 4 are credited to the foreign trade areas at which the merchandise was laden aboard the vessels
carrying the cargo to the United States. The countries of destination or origin of merchandise are not necessarily
located within the trade areas to which the merchandise is shipped or from which it is received. Detailed definitions
of foreign trade areas in terms of the countries and ports included in each are contained in Schedule R, Code Clas-
sification and Definition of Foreign Trade Areas.
shippingg weight figures represent the gross weight of shipments, including the weight of containers, wrappings,
crates and moisture content. Vessel export values represent the values at time and place of export. They are
based on the selling price (or on the cost if not sold) and include inland freight, insurance and other charges
to place of export. Transportation and other costs beyond the United States port of exportation are excluded. Vessel
import values, as well as the values for in-transit shipments, are generally based on the market or selling price and
are in general f.o.b. the exporting country. Since in-transit merchandise is not subject to the imposition of import
duties at the United States, the valuation reported for such shipments is not verified by customs to the extent ap-
plicable in the case of import entries and may in some cases include transportation costs and insurance to the United
States as well as other cost elements.
Vessel shipments in tablesal and 2 are classified as dry cargo .or tanker shipments solely on the basis of the
type of vessel used without regard to the cargo carried. Tanker vessels are those i4riarily designed for the carriage
of liquid cargoes in bulk, while all others are classified as dry cargo vessels. A further segregation of dry cargo
vessel shipments is provided in tables 3 and 4 on the basis of type of service, i.e., liner (berth) or irregular
(tramp). Liner service is that type of service offered by a regular line operator of dry cargo vessels on berth.
The itineraries and sailing schedules of such vessels are predetermined and fixed. Irregular or tramp service is
that type of service afforded by dry cargo vessels which are chartered or otherwise hired for the carriage of goods
on special voyages. Vessels in this type of service are not on berth and their sailing schedules are not predeter-
mined or fixed.

1955 and July-December 1956 and complete coverage of shipments valued at $1,000 or more and an estimate of the $100-4999 shipments camputed from a 10 percent sample of such shipmenta during January-June 1956. The chances are
2 out of 3 in the long run that the sampling error for the shipping weight figures which include estimates for the low-value shipment s less than one percent or less than 50,000 pounds unless otherwise noted. The sampling
error for the value figures which include estimates for the low-value shipments is less than one percent or less than 50,000 unless otherwise noted. The grand totals for value columnss 13 and 14) are not strictly rela-
tive to the grand totals columnss 1 and 2) for shipping weight due to the exclusion of value data for exports of Department of Defense controlled cargo and "special category" comodities. 'Florida Atlantic Coast port
totals should be added to Florida Gulf Coast port totals to obtain total exports through the Customs District of Florida. IThe sampling error is between 1 and 5 percent. 6The sampling error is between 15 and 20 percent.
