SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E JULY 1962 September 17, 1962


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced to-
day that the decrease in United States exports of domestic mer-
chandise, from $1,948.5 million in June to $1,691.5 million in
July,1 a drop of about 13 percent, reflected decreases in ex-
ports of all of the economic classes of commodities. The July
1962 domestic merchandise export total was, however, about five
percent higher than the July 1961 tottl of $1,617.0 million.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the July domestic merchandise export total amounted to $1,603.9
million, a level about 14 percent lower than the June total of
$1,872.2 million but about four percent higher than the July
1961 total of $1,538.4 million.

Exports of finished manufactures dropped from $1,162.6 million
in June to $1,011.6 million in July as decreases were reported
in exports of many of the individual commodities included in
this economic class. The more notable of these decreases were
as follows: construction, excavating, mining, oil field, and
related machinery, from $84.0 to $66.3 million; automobile
parts for assembly and replacement, from $57.5 to $45.1 mil-
lion; machine tools and parts, from $36.4 to $28.8 million;
motor trucks and busses, from $24.7 to $17.7 million; power
generating machinery from $32.2 to $25.3 million; passenger
cars, from $17.9 to $11.9 million; paper and manufactures,


See the July 1962 issue of Report No. IT 900-E for seasonally-adjusted
figures on t-otal exports, excluding Military Assistance Program--Grant-
Aid shipmen-ts. Seasonally-adjusted data are not available ncm a cnnmodity
basis


from $26.0 to $21.5 million; textile, sewing and shoe ma-
chinery, from $15.7 to $11.3 million; and rayon, nylon, and
other man-made textile manufactures, from $14.7 to $11.1
million. Exports of semimanufactures fall from $264.3 mil-
lion in June to $227.6 million in July. This change was due,
in part, to decreases in exports of copper semimanufactures,
from $21.7 to $14.2 million; plastics and resin materials,
from $26.1 to $21.9 million; rayon, nylon and other man-made
textile semimanufactures, from $13.8 to $10.1 million; and
iron and steel plates, sheets and strips from $13.5 to
$10.3 million.

The drop in exports of crude foodstuffsCmroam $8.8 to
$153.4 million, was largely accounted for le de-
creases in exports of from $87.6 to $ llion, and
decrease in corn, fr 2 to $40.9 ion rta of
manufactured foodst e1 from $LA u to $1 6. 11 ion
reflecting small, sc decre as In expor o indivi-
dual items included ecoq class aso s:
meat and meat produce $19. to $12.6 ; manu-
factured foodstuffs, e for relief or y, from
$12.3 to $9.1 million; ucts, $9 to $6.6
million; milled rice, 12 *. n; and canned
and prepared vegetables, .4 to 4 lion. Exports
of crude materials declined llion in June to
$192.9 million in July as decreases in exports of oil-
seeds, from $32.3 to $22.2 million; coal, from $34.6 to $30.4
million; inedible animal and fish oils and greases from $11.7
to $8.3 million; and unmanufactured tobacco, from $29.9 to
$26.9 million; were partly offset by an increase in exports
of unmanufactured cotton from $59.0 to $66.2 million.


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-
ures 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.


USCOMM-DC


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 I* but excluded from other totals), and the
omission of parcel post shipments valued under 350. 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.
