laden aboard vessels at United States ports, while columns
5, 8, 13 and 16 of table 2 reflect such merchandise unladen
from vessels. The waterborne outbound and inbound in-
transit statistics include: (1) foreign merchandise trans-
ferred from one vessel to another in the United States port
of arrival and shipped to a foreign country without being
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 mer-
chandise withdrawn from a general order warehouse for imme-
diate 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 deposited in the For-
eign Trade Zone without being entered as an import). Any
inbound or outbound in-transit merchandise 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 included in the inbound data
only. On the other hand, in-transit merchandise arriving by
other than waterborne transportation and laden aboard ves-
sels upon departure is included in the outbound statistics
but not in the inbound data. The inbound and outbound seg-
ments, therefore, do not counterbalance one another and are
complementary only insofar as they involve merchandise car-
ried 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 Feb-
ruary 1953 issue of the Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.

All types of outbound vessel shipments in tables 1 and
5 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 im-
ports this is not necessarily the same as the customs dis-
trict in which the goods were entered into warehouse or en-
tered 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 carry-
ing the cargo to the United States. The countries of desti-
nation 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 for-
eign trade areas in terms of the countries and ports includ-
ed in each are contained in Schedule R, Code Classification
and Definition of Foreign Trade Areas.

Shipping 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 ex-
port. Transportation and other costs beyond the United
States port of exportation are excluded. Vessel import val-
ues, 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 mer-
chandise is not subject to the imposition of import duties
at the United States, the valuation reported Tor such ship-
ments is not verified by customs to the extent applicable 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 tables 1 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 primarily 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 3-5 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 serv-
ice afforded by dry cargo vessels which are chartered or
otherwise hired for the carriage of goods on special voy-
ages. Vessels in this type of service are not on berth and
their sailing schedules are not predetermined or fixed.

*Denotes less than 50,000 por.ds; leas than 50,000 dollars. 1Figures based on complete coverage of shipments valued at $1,000 or more for the period January-June 1956 and shipments valued at $500 or more starting July
1956. 2The January-June 1956 figures are based on complete coverage of shipments valued at $1,000 or more and an estimate based on a 10 percent sample of the $100-$999 shipments. Starting July 1956 these figures are based
on complete coverage of shipments valued at $500 or more and an estimate based on a 10 percent sample of the $100-$499 shipments. The chances are 2 out of 3 in the long run that the sampling error for the shipping weight fig-
ures which include estimates for the low-value shipments is 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 (columns 13 and 14) are not strictly relative to the grand totals (columns 1 and 2) for shipping weight due to the exclusion
of value data for exports of Department of Defense controlled cargo and "special category" commodities. 4Florida Atlantic Coast port totals should be .adea to Florida Gulf Coast port totals to obtain total exports through
the Customs District of Florida. 'The sampling error is between 1 and 5 percent. 'The sampling error Is between 10 and 15 percent.

"Denotes less than 50,000 pounds. 'Figures based on complete coverage of shipments weighing 2,000 pounds or more and over $100 in value am an estimate of
the less than 2,000 pound shipments valued at $100 or more based on a 2 percent sample of the import documents. The chances are two out of three that the sampling
error for these figures which include estimates for the under 2,000 pound shipments is less than 1 percent. Shipments of under $100 in value regardless of shipping
weight are e-cluded. 2Classification of dry cargo vessels as "liner" or "irregular or tramp" is based on characteristics of each voyage (whether the vqage is
part of a scheduled berth operation, etc.) using the classification criteria or the Maritime Administration.
