SUMMARY REPORT Y FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E MAY 1962 July 12, 1962


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced to-
day that the increase in United States exports of domestic mer-
chandise, from $1,857.5 million in April to $1,946.2 million in
May1, a gain of about five percent, was primarily the result of
increases in exports of crude materials, crude foodstuffs,and
manufactured foodstuffs. The May domestic merchandise export
total was about thirteen percent higher than the May 1961 total
of $1,730.3 million. These totals include data on Department
of Defense Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the May domestic merchandise export total was $1,866.1 million,
about five percent higher than the April total of $1,775.1 mil-
lion and about thirteen percent higher than the May 1961 total
of $1,657.8 million.

Exports of crude foodstuffs rose from $176.9 million in April
to $214.9 million in May primarily as a result of increases in
exports of wheat, from $86.4 to $103.7 million; corn, from $45.3
to 152.1 million; fresh or dried vegetables, from $8.4 to $11.4
million; and fresh or frozen fruits, from $7.5 to $9.0 million.
Exports of rrude materials rose from $161.8 to $193.1 million
owing chiefly to increa.ses in exports of individual items in-
cluded in this economic class as follows: coal, from $27.4 to
$36.8 million; unmanufactured cotton, from $42.6 to $50.4 million,

1See the May 1962 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-edjusted
figures aon total exports, excluding Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid
ship~iants. Seasonally adjusted data are not available on a canodity
aeia.


oilseeds, from $30.2 to $33.2 million; and inedible animal and
fish oils and greases, from $8.4 to $11.2 million. Exports
of manufactured foodstuffs advanced from $107.7 to $127.7 mil-
l on r fle.: t r, in part, increases in exports of refined
%.egetstblc oil., fats, and waxes, from $11.6 to $17.4 million;
meat and meat products, from $12.0 to $17.3 million; and manu-
factured foodstuffs, exported for relief or charity by indi-
viduals and private agencies, from $13.6 to $17.5 million.
Although the increase in exports of semimanufactures was small,
from $254.9 to $257.0 million, notable counterbalancing changes
were reported in exports of some of the commodities included in
this economic class. The more noticeable of these were coal-
tar and other cyclic chemical products, from $13.8 to $17.1
million; wood pulp, from $11.7 to $14.8 million; crude vegetable
oils and fats, from $12.2 to $1.5 million; and synthetic rubber
from $15.7 to $12.3 million.

Exports of finished manufactures were valued at $1,153.6 million
in May, a level about the same as the April total of $1,156.2
million. However, there were sizable counterbalancing changer
in exports of some of the individual commodities included in
this economic class. The more noticeable of these were passen-
ger cars, from $29.2 to $21.8 million; railway transportation
equipment, from $15.4 to $9.7 million; construction, excavating,
mining, oil field, and related machinery, from $75.7 to $71.2
uiliion; aircraft, parts and accessories, from $130.2 to $149.8
million; machine tools, including metal-forming machine tools
and parts, from $26.7 to $32.9 million; tractors, from $19.8 to
$23.9 million; and trucks and busses, from $19.8 to $22.7 mil-
lion.


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-
area 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
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 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
part of exportation Transportation sad 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.
