SUMMARY REPORT UNE 1962 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E JUNE 1962 August 13, 1962


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the slight increase in United States exports of
domestic merchandise, from $1,946.2 million in May to $1,948.5
in June1, reflected increases in exports of crude materials,
finished manufactures and semimanufactures which were largely
offset by the decrease in exports of crude foodstuffs. The
June 1962 domestic merchandise export total was about 16 percent
higher than the June 1961 total of $1,678.3 million. These
totals include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program-(Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the June domestic merchandise export total amounted to $1,872.2
million, slightly higher than the May total of $1,866.1 million
and about 15 percent, higher than the June 1961 total of $1,623.2
million.

Exports of crude materials rose from $193.1 million in May to
$204.1 million in Jun- owing chiefly to increases in exports of

ISee the June 1962 issue of Beport No. IT 900-E for seasonally-
adjusted figures cn total exports, excluding Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments. Seasonally-eadjusted data ae not
araislable on a ccmnodity basisB.


unmanufactured cotton, from $50.4 to $59.0 million; and unmanu-
factured tobacco, from $22.2 to $29.9 million. Exports of
finished manufactures rose from $1,153.6 million to $1,162.6
million reflecting increases in exports of individual items
included in this economic class as follows: construction, ex-
cavating, mining, oil field, and related machinery, from $71.2
to $84.0 million; railway transportation equipment, from $9.7
to $17.1 million; machine tools, including metal-forming machine
tools, from $32.9 to,$36.4 million; power generating machinery,
from $30.1 to $32.2 million; trucks and busses, from $22.7 to
$24.7 million; and paper and manufactures, from $24.2 to $26.0
million. However, a substantial decrease was reported in ex-
ports of aircraft, parts, and accessories, from $149.8 to
$124.3 million. The advance in exports of semimanufactures
from $257.0 million in May to $264.3 million in June was prima-
rily due to the increase in exports of vegetable oils and fats,
from $1.5 to $9.9 million. June exports of manufactured food-
stuffs were valued at $127.8 million, a level about the same as
the May total of $127.7 million.

Te drop in crude foodstuffs from $214.9 million to $189.8
million resulted primarily from decreases in wheat from $103.7
to $87.6 million and corn, from $52.1 to $48.2 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship.
mealts to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grnt-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
ares 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
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 prese, n thisa report are bed 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
mouth 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 I" 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.
