SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


EXPORT TRADI


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Camnerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $1,838.2 million in June to $1,795.1 million in
July1, a decrease of about two percent, resulted from decreases
in exports of finished manufactures and crude materials which
were partly offset by increases in exports of semimanufactures,
manufactured foodstuffs and crude foodstuffs. The July 1963
domestic merchandise export total was, however, about six per-
cent higher than the July 1962 total of $1,698.8 million. These
totals include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the July domestic merchandise export total amounted to $1,690.7
million, a level about four percent lower than the June total of
$1,751.8 million but about six percent higher than the July 1962
total of $1,602.2 million.

Exports of finished manufactures fell from $1,100.5 million in
June to $1,046.8 million in July reflecting decreases in exports
of individual items included in this economic class. Some of
the more notable of these decreases were as follows: automobile
parts for assembly and replacement, from $59.5 to $46.7 million;

adjusted figures an tobal exports, excluding IMlitary Assistance Progran-
Grant-Aid shipments. Seasonally-adjusted data axe not available on a

passenger cars, from $22.7 to $10.9 million; radio and television
apparatus, from $37.4 to $30.9 million; tractors, from $25.2 to
$18.8 million; and metalworking machines and parts, except
machine tools and parts, from $16.4 to $12.0 million. However,
exports of lubricating oil, also included in this economic class,
advanced from $16.7 to $22.4 million. The decrease in exports
of crude materials, from $198.8 to $182.6 million, was largely
accounted for by decreases in exports of unmanufactured cotton,
from $34.5 to $25.9 million, and unmanufactured tobacco, from
$29.5 to $24.4 million.

Exports of semimanufactures advanced from $259.5 to $271.9 mil-
lion partly due to increases in exports of coal tar and other
cyclic chemical products, from $13.0 to $18.9 million, and
synthetic rubber, from $11.0 to $13.4 million. Exports of manu-
factured foodstuffs increased from $104.0 to $112.8 million as
increases in exports of milled rice, from $6.8 to $16.2 million,
and manufactured foodstuffs, exported for relief or charity,
from $9.0 to $14.1 million were partly offset by a decrease in
exports of wheat flour from $16.6 to $7.1 million. Exports of
crude foodstuffs rose from $175.6 to $181.0 million as a sub-
stantial increase in exports of wheat, from $71.1 to $91.2
million, was partly offset by a decrease in exports of corn,
from $56.9 to $47.9 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government -a well as nongovernment ship-
meets to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assisance Program-Grat-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
ures are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security l2rogram 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 mission 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 sellug price
(or cost if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and othrr 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 adjus'cd 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.

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.
