SUMMARY REPORT AUGUST 1962 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E UUl1962 October 10, 196Z


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
merchandise, from $1,691.5 million in July to $1,662.2 million
in August1, a decline of about two percent, reflected decreases
in exports of crude materials and finished manufactures which
were parti,/ offset by increases in exports of semimanufactures
and manufactured foodstuffs. The August 1962 domestic mer-
chandise export total was slightly higher than the August 1961
total of $1,649.9 million.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the August domestic merchandise export total amounted to
$1,b14.3 million, a level slightly higher than the July total
of $1,603.9 million and about two percent higher than the
August 1961 total of $1,578.4 million.

Exports of crude materials dropped from $192.9 million in July
to $155.7 million in August reflecting a sizable decrease in
exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $66.2 to $19.9 million.
This decrease was partly offset by an increase in exports of
coal, from $30.4 to $41.5 million. Exports of finished
manufactures fell from $1,011.6 to $978.5 million partly as a

ee the Augat 1962 issue of Report No. FT 900-E foar seasonally-adjted

Aid shUplnts. Seasnanlly-eadusted data are not available on a commodity

result of substantial decreases in exports of aircraft, parts
and accessories, from $121.3 to $84.6 million and office,
accounting, and computing machines and parts, from $33.6 to
$20.3 million. However, other individual commodities in-
cluded in this economic class, mainly construction, exca-
vating, mining, oil field, and related machinery, and
automobile parts for assembly and replacement, increased
from $66.3 to $75.4 million, and from $45.1 to $49.4 million,
respectively. Although the change in the dollar value of
exports of crude foodstuffs from July to August was small,
$153.4 to $153.1 million, there was sizable increase in exports
of one of the commodities included in this economic class,
wheat, which rose from $67.3 to $74.3 million.

Exports of -erLrinufs:ture-- rose from $227.6 to $265.1 million
reflecting zmill ir.:re-a-e in exports of most of the indi-
vidual commodities included in this economic class. The more
noticeable of these increases were iron and steel plates,
sheets and strips, from $10.3 to $16.7 million, and rayon, nylon
and other man-made textile semimanufactures, from $10.1 to
$15.4 million. Exports of manufactured foodstuffs advanced
from $106.1 to $109.7 million mainly due to increases in ex-
ports of canned fruits, from $3.9 to $11.7 million, and manu-
factured foodstuffs, exported for relief or charity, from
$9.1 to $16.5 million, which were largely offset by decreases
in exports of refined vegetable oils, fats, and waxes, from
$18.3 to $10.1 million, and milled rice, from $10.2 to $6.0
million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
meats to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
ures are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security Program economic as-
sistance shipments; and shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L. 480 (The
Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The
separate information which is available on exports under P.L. 480 and related laws
may be obtained from the Economic Research Service and the Foreign Agricultural
Service of the Department of Agriculture. Shipments to United States armed forces
and diplomatic missions abroad for their own use are excluded from export statistics.
United States trade with Puerto Rico and United States possessions is not included in
thin report, but the export trade of Puerto Rico with foreign countries is included as a
part of the United States export trade. Merchandise shipped in transit through the
United States between foreign countries, not entered as imports, is not included in ex-
port statistics.
VALUATION: 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
poet 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 sampling variation that may cause them to differ
somewhat from the results which would have been obtained from processing all export
documents. For the figures shown in this report the sampling variability can be ig-
nored 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 in-
dividual 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 manufac-
tures, 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, compilation procedures and preci-
sion of export data is contained in the foreword of Report No. FT 410. For complete
statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
