EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Depar tmerfnt of Commerce,
announced today that the increase in United States
exports of domestic merchandise, from $1,617.1 mil-
lion in January to $1,731.4 million in February1, a
gain of about seven percent; re elected higher levels
of exports of all of the economic classes of
commodities. The bulk of the rise was accounted for,
however, by increases in exports of finished manu-
factures and crude foodstuffs. The February domes-
tic merchandise total was about four percent higher
than the February 1961 total of $1,658.3 million.
These figures incl'jde data on Department of Defense
Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments2.

With Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid
shipments2 excluded, the February domestic merchan-
dise export total was $1,669.2 million, about seven
percent higher than the January total of $1,566.7
million and about five percent higher than the
February 1961 total of $1,592.9 million.




1See the February 1962 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for
seasonally-adjusted figures on total exports, excluding
Military Assistance Program-Grant Aid shipments. Season-
all adjusted data are not available on a ocmmodity basis.
Forsmrly referred to in this report as M.S.P. (military),
Mutual Security Program military shipments.


Exryp.rt'. of finished manufactures rose from $948.1
million in January to $1,026.9 million in February
owing chiefly to increases in exports of aircraft,
parts and accessories, from $103.1 to $155.3 mil-
lion; machine tools and parts (except Special
Category Type 1), from $19.2 to $33.2 million; mili-
tary automobiles, trucks, busses, etc, from $2.7 to
$16.1 million; and construction, excavating, mining,
oil field, and related machinery, from $59.7 to
$64.1 million. However, these increases were partly
offset by a drop in expo.rts of railway transporta-
tion equipment, from $18.1 to $6.9 million. Exports
of crude foodstuffs rose from $146.9 to $175.8 mil-
lion primarily as a result of increases in exports
of wheat, from $66.2 to $81.0 million and corn, from
$44.7 to $54.9 million. Exports of crude materials
advanced from $164.5 to $167.5 million reflecting,
in part, increases in exports of coal, from $20.7 to
$24.6 million and urnanu1jfactured tobacco, from $14.6
to $17.7 million. Although the increase in exports
of manufactured foodstuffs was small, from $107.3
to $108.2 million, sizable counterbalancing changes
were reported in exports of some of the commodities
included in this economic class. The more noticeable
of these were wheat flour, from $11.5 to $17.6 mil-
lion; refined vegetable oils, fats and waxes, from
$11.6 to $5.7 million; amd milled rice, from $16.6
to $12.3 million. A slight increase was reported in
exports of semimanufactures, from '50.2 to $252.9
million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


OVHIUAG: EBport statistics include government as well as
nongoverment shipments to foreign countries. The export
statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense aili-
tary Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments for which
separate figures are shown in the footnotes of this report.
Shipments to United States armed forces and diplomatic
missions abroad for their own use are excluded from export
statistics. liited States trade with Puerto Rico and United
States possessions is not included in this report, but the
export trade of Puerto Rico with foreign countries is in-
cluded as a part of the United States export trade. Mer-
chandise shipped in transit through the United States between
foreign countries, not entered as imports, is not included
in export statistics.
VAIUATION: The valuation definition used in the export
statistics is the value at the seaport, border point, or
airport of exportation. It is based on the selling price
(or cost if not sold) and includes inland freight,
insurance, and other charges to the port of exportation.
Transportation and other costs beyond the United States
port of exportation are excluded. None of the values have
been adjusted for changes in price level.

RELIABILITY: The statistics presented in this report are
based partly on sample data and therefore are subject to


USCOMM-DC


sampling variation that may cause them to differ somewhat
from the results which would have been obtained front
processing all export documents. For the figures shown
in this report the sampling variability can be ignored
since the probable variability due to sampling is either
less than $50,000 (the largest variation from rounding
of figures) or less than a trivial percentage of the
individual totals shown. In addition to the effects of
sampling variation, the data in this report are subject
to errors from such sources as the carry-over of data
from month to month, errors in reporting or processing,
the estimation of shipments valued under $100 (estimated
data for such shipments are included in the over-all
export total and in the totals for "Finished manufactures"
and "All other finished manufactures, exclusive of Special
Category Type 1" but excluded from other totals), and the
omission of parcel post shipments valued under $50.
Although the effect of such errors on the rounded totals
in this report is probably small, the possibility of inac-
curacy should be taken into account, particularly in using
figures of relatively small magnitude.

Further information regarding coverage, valuation, com-
pilation procedures and precision of export data is
contained in the foreword of Report No. FT 410. For
canplete statement, see foreword in Foreign Cnnmerce and
Navigation of the United States.

1Based on commodity classifications in Schedule B, Statistical Classification of Domestic and Foreign Commodities Ex-
ported from the United States. A Supplement to Report No. FT 930-E showing the Schedule B numbers included in the indi-
vidual economic class and commodity totals is available on request. 2Includes $62.2 million of Military Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments ($28.6 million to Western Europe). 3lncludes $50.4 million of Military Assistance Program
Grant-Aid shipments($17.6 million to Western Europe). 41ncludes $65.4 million of Military Assistance Program Grant-
Aid shipments ($30.7 million to Western Europe). 51ncludes $67.5 million of Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid
shipments ($27.5 million to Western Europe). 6See the January 1961 issue of Report No. FT 410 for explanation of
Special Category Commodities and list of commodities included. 71n issues of this report prior to January 1962, in-
formation on exports of merchandise reported under Schedule B commodity number 82721 (Vulcanized fiber sheets, rolls,
strips, rods, tubes, and other shapes solely made therefrom) was erroneously included in "Nitrogenous chemical fertiliz-
er materials" instead of "All other semimanufactures." The 1961 figures shown in this report have been revised to
correct this error. Slncludes data for Schedule B commodity numbers 30399 and 30855, converted to square yards on
the basis of four square yards per pound; and B number 30610, converted to square yards on the basis of three square
yards per pound.
