SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


NOVEMBER 1962


FOR RELEASE
January 17, 1963


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced today
that the rise in United States exports of domestic merchandise
from $1,593.1 million in October to $1,824.3 million in Novemberi,
an increase of about 15 percent, reflected increases in exports
of all of the economic classes of commodities. The bulk of the
increase was accounted for, however, by a substantial advance in
exports of finished manufactures. November exports of domestic
merchandise were about two percent higher than November 1961
total of $1,797.9 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 November domestic merchandise export total amounted to
$1,764.6 million, a level about 13 percent above the October
total of $1,562.5 million and about two percent above the Novem-
ber 19(1 total of $1,739.6 million.

Exports of : 7ri cr'rd i ..rfact!i_ ur :.;-c from $934.7 million in
October to 1, .'b.' million in Nov'.rfrmlr due to increases in ex-
ports of individual commodities included in this economic class
as follows: aircraft, parts,d nd accessories, from $90.8 to
$103.8 million; construction, excavating, mining, oil field, and
related machinery, from $8.7 to $69.9 million; power generating
machinery, from $26.2 to .f-3.7 million; motor trucks and busses,
from $15.5 to $22.3 million; antibiotics, from $3.5 to $9.9 mil-
lion; passenger cars, from $21.4 to $27.7 million; radio and

television apparatus, from $26.1 to $31.9 million; railway trans-
portation equipment, from $8.9 to $13.8 million; cigarettes, from
$5.4 to $9.5 million; lubricating oil, from $13.7 to $17.8 mil-
lion; and metalworking machines and parts, except machine tools
and parts, from $14.0 to $18.0 million. Exports of crude mate-
rials rose from $197.6 to $233.5 million owing chiefly to in-
creases in exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $21.9 to $41.1
million; oilseeds, from $61.4 to $71.9 million and unmanufactured
tobacco, from $38.4 to $44.6 million.

The increases in exports of semimanufactures from $214.9 to
$242.0 million reflected small increases in exports of most of
the individual commodities included in this economic class. The
more noticeable of these increases were synthetic rubber, from
$8.6 to $13.1 million; plastics and resin materials, from $20.1
to $23.8 million; iron and steel plates, sheets and strips, from
$12.6 to $16.8 million; rayon, nylon, and other man-made textile
semimanufactures, from $11.2 to $14.7 million; and wood pulp,
from $10.4 to $13.9 million. Exports of manufactured foodstuffs
rose from $105.6 to $122.7 million owing chiefly to increases in
exports of manufactured foodstuffs, exported for relief or
charity, from $10.9 to $19.2 million and refined vegetable oils,
fats, and waxes, from $2.6 to $8.3 million.

Although the increase in exports of crude foodstuffs from October
to November was small, from $140.3 to $144.5 million, sizable
counter-balancing changes were reported in exports of some of the
individual commodities included in this economic class. A sub-
stantial increase in exports of corn, from $30.4 to $51.1 million,
was partly offset by decreases in exports of wheat, from $56.6 to
$52.6 million and fresh or frozen fruits, from $11.3 to $8.3
million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: i export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
ments to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
ares are shown in die 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 -r linp 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 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 Ieport No. FT 410. For complete
statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
