The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced to-
day that the decrease in United States exports of domestic mer-
chandise, from $2,137.5 million in May to $1,838.2 million in
June1, a drop of about fourteen percent, resulted from decreases
in exports of all of the economic classes of commodities. The
June domestic merchandise export total was about six percent
lower than the June 1962 total of $1,952.3 million. Included
in these totals are data on Department of Defense Military
Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program-.3rant-Ald shipments excluded,
the June domestic merchandise export total amounted to $1,751.8
million, about 14 percent below the May total of $2,044.1 mil-
lion, and about seven percent below the June 1962 total of
$1,876.0 million.

Exports of finished uanufacture3 fell from $1,253.7 million in
May to $1,100.5 million In, June reflecting, in part, decreases
in exports of individual items included in this economic class
as follows: aircraft, parts and accessories, from $117.2 to
$85.3 million; automobile parts for assembly and replacement,
from $70.6 to $59.5 million; power generating machinery from
$34.1 to $25.5 million; lubricating oil, from $23.0 to $16.7
million; construction, excavating, mining, oil field and re-
lated machinery, from $8W.8 to $7?9.2 million and machine tools

1See the June 1963 issue of Report No. IT 900-S for seasonally-adjusted
figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid
sdupmEntz. Seasonaily-edjusted data are not available on a commodity
basis.


and parts, excluding Special Category Type 1, from $23.4 to
$18.3 million.

The decrease in exports of crude foodstuffs from $235.7 to
$175.6 million was mainly due to a drop in exports of wheat,
from $133.1 to $71.1 million. However, exports of fresh or
frozen fruits, also included in this economic class, rose from
$10.1 to $16.1 million. Exports of semimanufactures fell from
$308.4 to $259.5 million as decreases were reported in exports
of most of the individual items included in this economic
class. The more notable of these decreases were in exports of
iron and steel plates, sheets and strips, from $18.1 to $11.9
million; crude vegetable oils and fats from $11.1 to $5.6
million; and wood pulp, from $19.0 to $13.5 million. Decreases
in exports of manufactured foodstuffs exported for relief or
charity by individuals and private agencies, from $24.9 to
$9.0 million; milled rice, from $15.0 to $6.8 million; and
lard, from $6.0 to $2.2 million accounted for the bulk of the
drop in exports of manufactured foodstuffs from $138.9 to
$104.0 million.

Although the decline in exports of crude materials was slight,
from $200.8 to $198.8 million, sizable counterbalancing
changes were reported in exports of some of the individual
'items included in this economic class. Decreases in exports
of unmanufactured cotton, from $42.8 to $34.5 million; coal,
from $45.9 to $40.8 million, and raw hides and skins, except
furs, from $6.8 to $5.2 million were largely offset by in-
creases in exports of unmanufactured tobacco, from $20.7 to
$29.5 million and oilseeds, from $34.1 to $43.8 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
meato 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 F 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
(or cost if not sold) sad 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.


USCOM-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 Report No. FT 410. For complete
statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
