SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce announced to-
day that the increase in United States annual exports of
domestic merchandise, from $20,717 million in 1961 to $21,359
million in 1962 (a gain of about three percent) resulted from
increases in exports of finished manufactures, manufactured
foodstuffs, and crude foodstuffs which were partly offset by
decreases in exports of crude materials and semimanufactures.
Changes in the over-all dollar values of these economic
classes of commodities from 1961 to 1962 are as follows:
finished manufactures, from $11,838 to $12,706 million; manu-
factured foodstuffs, from $1,151 to $1,366 million; crude
foodstuffs, from $1,898 to $2,008 million; drude materials,
from $2,544 to $2,234 million; and semimanufactures, from
$3,286 to $3,045 million. These totals include data on
Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments which were
valued at $810 million in 1961 as compared to $727 million
in 1962.

Vith Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the domestic merchandise export total during calendar year
1962 amounted to $20,632 million, a level about four percent
higher than the calendar year 1961 total of $19,907 million.

The December 1962 domestic merchandise export total, including
Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments, was valued
at $1,876.8 million1, a level about three percent higher than
both the November total of $1,824.3 million and the December
1961 total of $1,828.3 million. With Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments excluded, the December domestic
merchandise total was $1,838.6 million or about four percent
more than the November total of $1,764.6 million.

The increase in exports of domestic merchandise including
Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments, from
November to December, as noted above, was primarily due to

ISee the December 1962 issue of Report No. IT-900-E for seasonally-
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance
Progra--Grant-Aid shipments. Seasonally-adjusted data are not
available on a commodty basis.


increases in exports of semimanufactures, crude foodstuffs
and finished manufactures which were partly offset by
decreases in exports of crude materials and manufactured
foodstuffs. Exports of semimanufactures rose from $241.9
to $278.6 million due mainly to higher levels of exports of
commodities included in this economic class as follows:
copper semimanufactures, from $13.5 to $21.8 million; indus-
trial chemicals, exclusive of Special Category Type 1, from
$25.9 to $32.0 million; crude vegetable oils and fats, from
$5.7 to $10.7 million; aluminum semimanufactures, from
$8.4 to $11.7 million; synthetic rubber from $13.1 to $16.3
million; and wood pulp from $13.9 to $17.1 million. The
increase in exports of crude foodstuffs, from $144.5 to $180.5
million was largely accounted for by a sizable increase in
exports of wheat, from $52.6 to $88.0 million; which was
partly offset by a decrease in exports of corn, from $51.1
to $43.9 million. Exports of finished manufactures advanced
from $1,081.7 to $1,096.4 million, reflecting, in part,
increases in exports of metalworking machines and parts,
except machine tools and parts, from $18.0 to $23.1 million;
automobile parts for assembly and replacement, from $60.4
to $65.0 million; paper and manufactures, from $22.9 to
$26.4 million; and agricultural machines, implements and
parts, from $9.9 to $13.2 million. However, decreases were
noted in exports of aircraft, parts and accessories, from
$103.8 to $95.0 million; and antibiotics, from $9.9 to $4.5
million.



During the period, exports of crude materials decreased from
$233.6 to $212.4 million as decreases in exports of oilseeds,
from $71.9 to $48.9 million and coal, from $35.3 to $27.4
million, were partly offset by an increase in exports of
unmanufactured cotton from $41.1 to $52.0 million. The
decline in exports of manufactured foodstuffs from $122.7
to $108.9 million was largely due to decreases in exports
of refined vegetable oils, fats and waxes, from $8.3 to $3.3
million; lard, from $4.7 to $1.7 million; and meat and meat
products, from $12.7 to $10.5 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
ments to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
ares re 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
this 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 is the export statistics is the value at
the seaport, border point, or airport of expotae.on. 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.


RFLIABILITY: 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 then $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 F ore irn Commerce and Navigation of the United States.

Supplement to Report No. FT 930-E showing the Schedule B numbers included in the individual economic class and commodity totals in available on reqat.
Includes $38.3 million of Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments ( $9.5 million to Western Europe). 3Includes $59.7 million of Militay Assistance
Program Grant-Aid shipments ($20.3 million to Western Europe). includes $49.6 million of Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments ($15.3 million to

of Report No FT 410 for explanation of Special Category commodities and list of commodities included. In issues of this report prior to January 1962, Infama-
tion 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 fertilizer materials3 instead of "All other semimanufactures." The 1961 figures shown 1 this
report have been revised to correct this error.
