SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E JANUARY 1962 March 30, 1962


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 $1,806.9 mil-
lion in December 1961 to $1,617.1 million in January
19621, a drop of about 11 percent, reflected de-
creases in exports of all of the economic classes of
commodities except manufactured foodstuffs.

The January 1962 domestic merchandise export total
was about the same as the $1,617.5 million reported
in January 1961. These figures include data on
M.S.P. (military) shipments.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports
of domestic merchandise were valued at $1,566.7 mil-
lion in January 1962, a level about 11 percent below
the December 1961 total of $1,757.3 million, but
about four percent higher than the January 1961
total of $1,509.6 million.

Exports of crude materials dropped from $232.1 mil-
lion in December to $164.5 million in January.
This change was largely the result of sizable de-
creases in exports of unmanufactured cotton, from

1See the January 1962 issue of Report 1o. FT 900-E for
sea1sor iBed figures on total exports, excluding
M.S it i cents. Seasonally-adjusted data are
5F1 blable a ctnodlt:,, basis.


$77.5 to $54.6 million; unmanufactured tobacco, from
$34.8 to $14.6 million; and oilseeds, from $41.1 to
$27.7 million.

Exports of finished manufactures fell from $1,010.4
to $948.1 million as decreases were reported in ex-
ports of many of the individual commodities included
in this economic class. The more notable of these
decreases were machine tools and parts, from $28.4
to $19.2 million; aircraft, parts and accessories,
from $110.6 to $103.1 million; passenger cars, from
$26.2 to $21.7 million; automobile parts for assembly
and replacement, from $55.2 to $51.4 million; steel
mill manufactures, from $12.5 to $9.8 million; and
paper and manufactures, from $25.2 to $22.8 million.

A drop in exports of wheat, from $96.9 to $66.2 mil-
lion, accounted for the bulk of the decrease in ex-
ports of crude foodstuffs, from $178.8 to $146.9
million. The decline in exports of semimanufactures
from $280.9 to $250.2 million was partly due to de-
creases in exports of copper semimanufactures, from
$27.1 to $20.1 million and synthetic rubber, from
$16.3 to $11.2 million.

During the period, exports of manufactured food-
stuffs advanced from $104.7 to $107.3 million due
partly to an increase in exports of vegetable oils,
fats and waxes, from $4.2 to $11.6 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


SCvERA: rt stat sti include government as well as
nrngoverrmerohipmentB to foreign countries. The export
s .atistics, t fore, .inrc de Mutual Security Program
mi itary &id. t.ual Se ity Program economic aid and
Department of the Armay Ciilian Supply shipments. Separate
Sgure or ~Mut y Program military aid are shown
in the foo~no es report. Shipments to United States
armed forcegq 3n*n '"-t ic missions abroad for their own use
are exe n d ...firexport 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 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
sampling variation that may cause them to differ somewhat


USCOMM-OC


froan the results which would have been obtained from
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 fran 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 froan 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
complete statement, see foreword in Foreign Ccanerce and
Navigation of the United States.

'Based 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 $50.4_ million of Military Mutual
Security Program shipments ($17.6 million to Western Europe). Includes $49.6 million of Military Mutual Security
Program shipments ($15.3 million to Western Europe). Includes $107.9 million of Military Mutual Security Program
shipments ($70.4 million to Western Europe). 5Ineludes $67.5 million of Military Mutual Security Program 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. 71In issues of this report prior to January 1962, information
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 ma-
terials"instead of "All other semimanufactures." The 1961 figures shown in this report have been revised to correct
this error.
