SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that the increase in United States
exports of domestic merchandise from $1,731.4 million
in February to $1,794.4 million in March,1 a gain of
about four percent, reflected sizable increases in
exports of finished manufactures and manufactured
foodstuffs and small, less noticeable increases in
exports of the remaining economic classes of com-
motities, crude materials, semimanufactures, and
crude foodstuffs. The March 1962 total is about six
percent lower than the March 1961 total of $1,902.4
million. These totals include data on Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid
shipments.2

With Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments
excluded, the March domestic merchandise export
total amounted to $1,732.7 million, about four per-
cent more than the February total of $1,669.2
million, but about seven percent less than the March
1961 total of $1,857.3 million.

Exports of finished manufactures increased from
$1,026.9 million in February to $1,069.3 million in
March. This change was largely due to small increases
in exports of most of the individual items included
in this economic class, the more noticeable of which
were as follows: Textile, sewing, and shoe machinery,
from $12.6 to $20.8 million; automobile parts for
assembly and replacement, from $50.5 to $58.3 million;

1ee the March 1962 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for
seassnally-adjusted figures on total exports, excluding
)Mlitary Assistance Program,-Grant Aid shipments. Season-
alll adjusted data are not available on a camxndity basis.

railway transportation equipment, from $6.9 to $13.6
million; metalworking machines and parts, except
machine tools and parts, from $14.5 to $18.4 million;
construction, excavating, mining, oilfield and re-
lated machinery, from $64.1 to $67.8 million; pas-
senger cars, from $19.2 to $22.8 million; and motor
trucks and busses, from $18.2 to $21.7 million.
However, sizable decreases were reported in exports
of aircraft, parts and accessories, from $155.3 to
$118.6 million; and military automobiles, trucks and
busses, etc., from $16.1 to $4.7 million. Exports of
maanufactured foodstuffs advanced from $108.2 to
$122.3 million as increases in exports of manufactured
foodstuffs, exported for relief or charity, from
$14.4 to $20.3 million; milled rice, from $12.3 to
$15.5 million; canned fruits from $4.6 to $7.7 mil-
lion and dairy products, from $6.3 to $8.7 million
which were partly offset by a decrease in exports of
wheat flour, from $17.6 to $13.8 million. Exports
of semimanufactures increased slightly from $252.9
to $255.5 million reflecting counterbalancing
changes in exports of individual items included in
this economic class as follows: industrial chemicals,
excluding Special Category type 1, from $21.4 to
$26.6 million; nitrogenous chemical fertilizer
materials, from $6.7 to $2.8 million; and copper
semimanufactures, from $21.8 to $18.0 million. Exports
of crude materials rose from $167.5 to $171.2 million.
Although March exports of crude foodstuffs, valued
at $176.0 million, were about the same as the
February total of $175.8 million, counterbalancing
changes were noted in exports of individual com-
modities included in this economic class. The more
noticeable of these were, wheat, from $81.0 to $86.5
million; fresh or dried vegetables, from $4.9 to
$6.9 million and corn, from $54.9 to $46.8 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


WiOAGE: BIport statistics include government as well as
noagovexrment shipments to foreign countries. The export
statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense Mili-
tary Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments for which
separate figures are shown in the footnotes of this report.
Shipments to thited States axmed forces and diplcatic
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 in-
cluded as a part of the UTited States export trade. Mer-
chandise shipped in transit through the Uhited States between
foreign countries, not entered as imports, is not included
in export statistics.
VAIUATI(N: 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.
Transportat ion and other costs beyond the United States
port of exportat ion 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-oc


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 ignored
since the probable variability due to sampling is either
less than $50,000 (the largest variation front 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 ansmall, the possibility of inac-
curacy should be taken into account, particularly in using
figures of relatively asmll magnitude.

Further information regarding coverage, valuation, com-
pilation procedures and precision of export data is
contained in the foreword of Report No. FIT 410. Fo-
complete statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and
Navigation of the United States.
