SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


EXPORT TRADE


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $2,098.3 million in March to $2,030.5 million
in April', a drop of about three percent, reflected decreases
in exports of finished manufactures, crude materials, manufac-
tured foodstuffs and semimanufactures which were partly offset
by an increase in exports of crude foodstuffs. The April 1963
domestic merchandise export total is about nine percent higher
than the April 1962 total of $1,862.0 million. These totals
include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the April domestic merchandise export total amounted to
$1,941.2 million, about five percent less than the March total
of $2,031.7 million and about nine percent more than the April
1962 total of $1,779.6 million.
Exports of finished manufactures fell from $1,256.3 million
in March to $1,206.1 million In April reflecting, in part,
decreases in exports of individual items included in this
economic class as follows: office, accounting and com-
puting machines and parts, from $40.2 to $27.2 million;
metal manufactures, from $49.3 to $42.9 million; trucks
and busses, from $24.7 to $19.2 million; machine tools,
I

adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance Program--
Grant-kAd shipments. Seasonally-adjusted data are not eailable on a
commodity basis.


including metal-forming machine tools and parts, from $24.6 to
$20.0 million; railway transportation equipment, from $14.6 to
$11.2 million; steel mill manufactures, from $17.6 to $14.2
million; and paper and manufactures, from $29.5 to $26.3 mil-
lion. The decrease in exports of crude materials from $205.0
to $185.8 million was largely due to decreases in exports of
unmanufactured cotton, from $59.3 to $41.3 million; unmanufac-
tured tobacco, from $27.4 to $25.0 million; and raw hides
and skins, except furs, from $7.7 to $5.5 million. However, an
increase was reported in exports of coal, from $29.0 to $35.2
million. Exports of manufactured foodstuffs fell from $157.1
to $139.1 million, reflecting decreases in exports of most of
the individual items included in this economic class, the more
noticeable of which were refined vegetable oils, fats and
waxes, from $19.9 to $11.3 million and wheat flour, from $16.0
to $9.9 million. These decreases, however, were partly offset
by an increase in exports of manufactured foodstuffs, exported
for relief or charity, from $15.1 to $25.4 million. The
decline in exports of semimanufactures from $290.0 to $278.5
million was primarily the result of a decrease in exports of
industrial chemicals, excluding Special Category type 1, from
$35.1 to $30.1 million, and lesser decreases in exports of
several other commodities included in this economic class. An.
increase, however, was noted in exports of crude vegetable oils
and fats, from $6.5 to $12.5 million.

Exports of tru f. r.i.:-tuffr rose from $190.0 to $220.9 million
owing chiefly to increases in exports of wheat, from $98.8 to
$122.1 million and corn, from $49.7 to $55.6 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 Program-Grant-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
sal 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 as
the seaport, border point, or airport of exportation. I is based on the selling price
(or cost if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to ihe
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 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

F 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
staten.ent, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
