New Data: U.S. - FT900 Trade - Trade balance
Friday, 24 Aug 2018 15:49 ET
By Jaclyn Zylka
August 2018 -- In the Census Bureau FT900 "U.S. International Trade in Goods and Services" dataset, we have added balance of trade in nominal, NSA terms (one new monthly series, from 1992).

Dataset properties:

  • Measurement: Millions of U.S. dollars (Mil. USD)
  • Adjustment: Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
  • Valuation: Balance of payments
  • Native frequency: Monthly
  • Start date: January 1992

The series resides in the historical catalog (United States » Trade » U.S. merchandise trade by end-use category » Balance of trade) and is:

  • XTBBTTL.IUSA = Trade: Balance - Balance of payments basis, (Mil. USD, NSA)

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.

Please be aware that

Trade balance is exports less imports, that is: XTBBTTL.IUSA = XTBETTL.IUSA - XTBITTL.IUSA
