SUMMARY REPORT March 1 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E 1197UJ May 10, 1963


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced to-
day. that the slight increase in United Stated exports of domes-
tic merchandise from $2,081.0 million in February to $2,098.3
million in March(a gain of about one percent), resulted from
increases in exports of manufactured foodstuffs and finished
manufactures which were partly offset by decreases in exports
of crude materials, crude foodstuffs, and semimanufactures. The
March 1963 domestic merchandise export total was about 15 per-
cent higher than the March 1962 total of $1,822.5 million.1'2
These totals include data on Department of Defense Military
Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the March domestic merchandise export total amounted to $2,031.7
million, about two percent more than the February total of
$1,996.8 million and about 15 percent more than the March 1962
total of $1,760.8 million.

The increase in exports of manufactured foodstuffs from $130.6
million in February to $157.1 million in March was mainly due
to increases in exports of refined vegetable oils fats and


The Bureau of the Census does not hare adequate information to measure
the effect on the statiatios of the dock strike vbch began midnight
December 23 and oontinaed through January 25, 1963.
fSee the Maroh 1963 issue of Beport No. IT 900-1 for seasonally-
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance Program-
Grant-Aid shipments. Sessonally-adjusted data are not available on a
oamodity basis.


waxes, from $7.6 to $19.9 million; milled rice, from $17.0 to
$23.2 million; wheat flour, from $10.1 to $16.0 million; and
dairy products, from $7.0 to $12.2 million. Exports of finished
manufactures advanced from $1,231.2 to $1,256.3 million reflec-
ting, in part, noticeable increases in exports of the following
commodities included in this economic class: office, accounting,
and computing machines and parts, from $30.0 to $40.2 million;
railway transportation equipment, from $8.1 to $14.6 million;
metal manufactures, from $43.3 to $49.3 million; steel mill
manufactures, from $12.5 to $17.6 million; paper and manufac-
tures, from $26.4 to $29.5 million; agricultural machines,
implements and parts, from $15.6 to $18.6 million; and con-
struction, excavating, mining, oil field, and related machinery,
from $75.9 to $78.8 million. However, exports of aircraft,
parts and accessories, also included in this economic class, fell
from $145.4 to $130.3 million.

The drop in exports of crude materials from $226.7 to $205.0
million was due chiefly to decreases in exports of oilseeds,
from $53.5 to $40.3 million and unmanufactured cotton from
$69.6 to $59.3 million. Exports of crude foodstuffs decreased
from $197.7 million in February to $190.0 million in March.
Exports of semimanufactures declined from $294.9 to $290.0 mil-
lion as decreases in exports of distillate and residual fuel
oil, from $17.7 to $7.3 million and wood pulp, from $18.3 to
$15.0 million were largely offset by increases in: exports of
industrial chemicals, excluding Special Category type 1, from
27.3 to $35.1 million and crude vegetable oils and fats, from
1.1 to $6.5 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
meant to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Asaistance Program-GranL-Aid shipments (for which separate fig.
ame. are shown in the footnotes of MB report). Mutual Security Program economic ara-
mistance 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 aimed 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.


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 S50. 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
manr~illde


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 Further information regarding coverage, valuation, compilation procedures and preci-
(or cost if not sold) and includes iland freight, insurance, and other charges to the sin of export dat i contained in the foreword of Report No. FT 410. For complete
port of exportation. Transportation and other costs beyond the United States port of statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
exportation are excluded. None of the valune i ted for changes in
