SUMMARY REPORT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FT950 ..April 9? 1?52

TRADE BY COUNTRY'





U.S. DEPO TO 0 SUPPLEMENT


Country of destination detail is not reported in export statistics for

Special Category coommodities beginning July 1950, for security reasons.

However, in the current issues of Summary Report FT 950, export totals for

certain areas are shown at the beginning of the table on page 3 which include

shipments of Special Category commodities. Export figures show for other

areas and countries do not represent total exports to the respective areas

and countries but represent total exports less exports of Special Category

commodities. In order to present data for 1948 to 1950 comparable to those

being shown in the 1952 issues of Summary Report FT 950, the statistics for

the periods covered by this Supplement have been adjusted to exclude Special

Categories as defined January 1952. See the January 1952 issue of Foreign

Trade Statistics Notes for further explanation and list of Special Category

commodities.

Export statistics include, with certain exceptions, data on all shipments of
merchandise to foreign countries from continental United States, Puerto Rico, and the ter-
ritories of Alaska and Hawaii. They do not include shipments to the United States armed
forces abroad for their own use. Import statistics include, with certain exceptions, data
on imports of merchandise from foreign countries into continental United States, Puerto
Rico, and the territories of Alaska and Hawaii. Neither the import nor export statistics
include shipments between continental United States and its territories and possessions,
or between the territories and possessions. See Foreword to Foreign Commerce and Naviga-
tion of the United States for complete statement.

None of the export or import figures has been adjusted for changes in price
level.
