SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E OCTOBER 1962 December 13, 196Z


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 $1,742.3 million in September to $1,593.1 million
in October1, a decrease of about nine percent, reflected de-
creases in exports of all of the economic classes of commodities
except crude materials. The October 1962 domestic merchandise
export total was about 15 percent lower than the October 1961
total of $1,866.8 million. These totals include data on Depart-
ment of Defense Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the October domestic merchandise export total amounted to
$1,562.5 million, a level about eight percent below the September
total of $1,692.1 million and about 13 percent below the October
1961 total of $1,793.8 million.

Exports of finished manufactures dropped from $1,012.3 million
in September to $934.7 million in October largely as a result of
decreases in exports of individual commodities included in this
economic class as follows: lubricating oil, from $23.0 to $13.7
million; construction, excavating, mining, oil field, and related
machinery, from $64.8 to $58.7 million; railway transportation
equipment, from $14.0 to $8.9 million; textile, sewing and shoe
machinery, from $17.0 to $12.0 million; paper and manufactures,
from $25.2 to $20.4 million; cigarettes, from $9.7 to $5.4 mil-
lion; and steel mill manufactures, from $12.5 to $9.9 million.




1See the October 1962 issue of Beport No. I1-900-E for seasonally-
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance Program-
Grant-Aid shipments. Sesonally-adjusted data are not available on a ccm-
modity basis.


However, another commodity included in this economic class,
namely, automobile parts for assembly and replacement, increased
from $57.1 to $64.5 million. Exports of semimanufactures fell
from $279.5 to $214.9 million mainly due to decreases in exports
of most of the indiidual commodities included in this economic
class. The more noticeable of which were as follows: synthetic
rubber, from $19.1 to $8.6 million; plastics and resin materials,
from $26.3 to $20.1 million; copper semimanufactures, from $18.0
to $12.4 million; rayon, nylon, and other man-made textile semi-
manufactures, from $15.4 to $11.2 million; coal-tar and other
cyclic chemical products, from $18.5 to $14.9 million; aluminum
semimanufactures, from $12.0 to $9.0 million; iron and steel
plates, sheets and strips, from $15.5 to $12.6 million and pig-
ments, from $6.1 to $3.3 million. The decrease in exports of
crude foodstuffs from $152.6 to $140.3 million was largely
accounted for by a substantial decrease in exports of wheat,
from $81.6 to $56.6 million, which was partly offset by in-
creases in exports of fresh or dried vegetables, from $4.1
to $9.0 million; corn, from $27.7 to $30.4 million; and
fresh or frozen fruits, from $8.7 to $11.3 million.

Exports of manufactured foodstuffs declined from $111.8 to $105.6
million reflecting decreases in exports of manufactured food-
stuffs, exported for relief or charity, from $17.7 to $10.9 mil-
lion; canned fruits, from $12.4 to $9.1 million and refined veg-
etable oils, fats, and waxes, from $5.1 to $2.6 million. These
decreases were partly offset by increases in exports of dried
and evaporated fruits, from $3.9 to $8.8 million and milled rice,
from $8.8 to $12.6 million.

During the period, exports of crude materials rose from $186.2
to $197.6 million mainly due to a notable rise in exports of oil-
seeds, from $20.7 to $61.4 million, which was partly offset by
a drop in exports of unmanufactured tobacco, from $64.8 to
$38.4 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
ments to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Progam-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
re are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security Program economic as-
sietnce 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
(ar coat if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the
port of exportation. Transportation and other costa 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 reFort 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.
