SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E May 1963 July 16o, 1963


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Cognmerce7 announced
today that the increase in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from 52,'3,.'.5 million in April to :..', 7.5 mil-
lion in May1, a gain of about five percent, resulted from
increases in exports of finished manufactures, semimanufac-
tures, crude materials and crude foodstuffs. The May 1963
domes tie merchandise export total was about ten percent higher
than, the May 1962 total of ;,1,'--5.2 million. These totals

With Military Assistance : -.. -Aid .hipments excluded,
the May domestic merchandise export total amou ted o ...- .1

.1,1-. 1.2 million and about ten percent above te ';:. 19.2
total of 1. _. ..1 million.

economic class as foll ws: power generating machinery, from
$28.6 to $34.1 million; motor trucks and busses, from $19.2
to $22.4 million; construction, excavating, airing, oil field,
and related machinery, from $81.0 to $84.8 million; automobile
parts for assembly and replacement, from $66.8 to $70.6
million; and machine tools and parts, excluding Special Cae-
gory Type 1, from $20.0 to $23.4 million. However, export,
or aircraft, parts and accessories, also included in this
economic class, fell from $128.2 to $117.2 million. Export'
of r- increased from $278.5 to .,308.4 million
reflecting increases in exports of most of the individual
commodities included in this economic class. The more notice-
able of these increases were wood pulp, from $12.3 to 419.0
million; industrial che icals, excluding .:: categoryy
. 1, frer $30.1 to $3.5 million; and sawmill products,
from $8.0 to $10. 6.illion. The increase in exports of crude
materials from $185.8 o .200.8 million was largely accounted
for by an increase in exports of coal from $35.2 to $4.5.9
million. Exports of : : advanced from :220.9 to
$235.7 million owing chiefly to increases in exports of wheat,
from $122.1 to 133.1 million and fresh or frozen fruits,
from $6.3 to $10.1 million.

Although the decrease in exports of manufactured foodstuffs
was slight, from $139.1 to $138.9 Million, there was a sizable
drop in exports of milled rice, from .':. i to $15.0 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
Deleaoe Military Asisteance 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 f-oreign 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 -sllhin 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.


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 surial.,ili 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 m-ill the possibility of inac-
curacy should be taken into account, particularly in using figures of relatively small
magnitude.

Further information regarding coverage, valuation, # .mpilaion 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
