SUMMARY REPORT August 1963 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E ugu 1I6J October 10, 1963


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the increase in United States exports of domestic
merchandise, from $1,795.1 million in July to $1,884.6 million
in August1, a gain of about five percent, resulted from in-
creases in exports of finished manufactures, crude materials,
semimanufactures and manufactured foodstuffs which were partly
offset by a decrease in exports of crude foodstuffs. The
August 1963 domestic merchandise export total was about 14
percent higher than the August 1962 total of $1,660.9 million.
These totals include data on Department of Defense Military
Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Pr.:*Cram--Grant-Aic shipments excluded,
the August domestic merchandise export total amounted to
$1,816.0 million, a level about six percent above the July
total of $1,711.6 million and about 11 percent above the August
1962 total of $1,633.3 million.

The increase in exports of finished manufactures from $1,046.8
million in July to $1,084.1 nrilion in Aiugat reflected, in
part, increases in exports of aircraft, parts and accessories,


ISee the August 1963 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-
aejusted figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance
Programn--rait-Aid shipments. Seasonally-adjusted data are not
avai able on a c-miaodity basis.







EXPLANATION 0


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-
ures 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
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) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the
poet of exportation. Transportation and other costa beyond the United States port of
exportation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in
price level.


from $89.7 to $101.8 million; automobile parts for assembly and
replacement, from $46.7 to $56.0 million; office accounting
and computing machines and parts, from $27.3 to $33.6 million;
and power generating machinery, from $22.8 to $26.9 million.
Exports of passenger cars, also included in this economic class,
fell from $10.9 to $5.1 million. Exports of crude materials
rose from $182.6 to $217.7 million mainly due to a rise in
exports of coal, from $36.2 to $53.0 million; unmanufactured
cotton, from $25.9 to $36.7 million; and unmanufactured tobacco,
from $24.4 to $32.3 million. The increase in exports of semi-
rna1j:.:'t jre, from $271.9 to $300.2 million, was largely ac-
counted for by increases in exports of industrial chemicals,
excluding Special Category type 1, from $31.1 to $40.3 million;
copper semimanufactures, from $15.0 to $20.9 million; and iron
and steel plates, sheets and strips, from $12.8 to $15.8 mil-
lion. The rise in exports of manufactured foodstuffs, from
$112.8 to $123.7 million, was primarily due to an increase in
exports of refined vegetable oils, fats and waxes, from $6.3
to $13.0 million, and small scattered increases in exports of
most of the other individual commodities included in this eco-
nomic class. Exports of milled rice, however, fell from $16.2
to $6.7 million.
Exports of crude foodstuffs fell from $181.0 million in July
to $158.8 million ust owing chiefly to decreases in ex-
ports of co $36.7 million; fresh or dried
vegetables illlon; and wheat, from $91.2
to $87.1 1rm"


RFLIABILITY: T1%Win1 l[ited 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 I oremen Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
