SUMMARY REPORT September 1963 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E pem er November 12, 1963


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $1,884.6 million in August to $1,801.4 million
in September1, a decrease of about four percent, resulted from
decreases in exports of finished manufactures, semimanufactures,
and manufactured foodstuffs, which were partly offset by in-
creases in exports of crude foodstuffs and crude materials.
However, the September 1963 domestic merchandise export total
was about four percent higher than the September 1962 total of
$1,741.3 million. These totals include data on Department of
Defense Millitary Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the September domestic merchandise export total amounted to
$1,765.1 million, about three percent below the August total of
$1,816.0 million but about three percent above the September
1962 total of $1,710.0 million.

The drop in exports of finished manufactures from $1,084.1
million in August to $1,020.4 million in September was primarily


ISee the September 1963 issue of Report No.- FT 900-E for seasonally-
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance Program-
Grant-Aid shipments. Seasonally-adjusted data are not available on a
coamodity basis.


due to lower levels of exports of aircraft, parts and accesso-
ries, from $101.8 to $76.1 million; construction, excavating,
mining, oil field and related machinery, from $75.1 to $65.1
million; power generating machinery, from $26.9 to $20.9 million;
agricultural machines, implements and parts, from $16.6 to $10.6
million; and office, accounting, and computing machines and
parts, from $33.6 to $27.8 million. However, during the period,
exports of automobile parts for assembly and replacement rose
from $56.0 to $64.3 million. Exports of kemimanufactures fell
from $300.2 to $270.0 million owing chiefly to decreases in
exports of plastics and resin materials from $27.0 to $21.8
million; copper semimanufactures, from $20.9 to $16.3 million;
industrial chemicals, excluding Special Category Type 1, from
$40.3 to $35.8 million; and synthetic rubber, from $15.0 to
$11.7 million. Exports of manufactured foodstuffs decreased
slightly from $123.7 to $122.2 million.


Small increases in exports of most of the individual items in-
cluded under crude foodstuffs accounted for the rise in exports
of this economic class from $158.8 to $165.9 million. Exports
of crude materials advanced from $217.7 to $222.9 million. This
change reflected increases in exports -of unmanufactured t
from $32.3 to $55.5 million, and unmanufacturea cot
$36.7 to $41.9 million, which were partly off et a
in exports of oilseeds, from $36.8 to-$24.5 miAlf 6%


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
meats 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 pice
(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 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-
tlrea, exclusive of Special Category Type 1" but excluded from other totals), and the
omission of parcel post shipments valued under 350. 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.
