SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E NOvember 1963 January 14, 1964


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 $2,055.8 million in October to
$2,079.1 million in November1, an increase of about one
percent, resulted from increases in exports of finished
manufactures, crude materials, crude foodstuffsand manu-
factured foodstuffs, which were partly offset by a decrease
in exports of semimanufactures. The November 1963 domes-
tic merchandise export total was about 14 percent higher
than the November 1962 total of $1,824.3 million. These
totals include data on Department of Defense Military
Assistance Program-- rant-Aid shipments.


With Mlilitary Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments ex-
eluded, the November domestic merchandise export total
amounted to $2,003.1 million, slightly higher than the
October total of $1,999.0 million but about 14 percent above
the November 1962 total of $1,764.6 million.

'Aee the lovrember 1963 issue of Report No. IT 900-E for seasonally-
adjusted figrEs ,r, total export, c.-'iE-ii', I.:1itary Assistance
Pr,:.graM--Gra,lt-Aid shipments. ba-..ri.at,-j.-i tcl data are not avail-
able :r, a c' *-iroity basis.


The increase in exports of finished manufactures from $1,132.4
million in October to $1,149.9 million in November, reflected
in part, increases in exports of aircraft, parts and acces-
sories, from $74.6 to $107.4 million, and passenger cars,
from $29.6 to $45.3 million. However, exports of riil
transportation equipment, also included in this economic
class, fell from $16.3 to $8.8 million. Exports of crude
materials increased from $272.8 to $281.6 million as increases
in exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $50.9 to $67.8 mil-
lion, and oilseeds, from $57.0 to $64.9 million, were partly
offset by a decrease in exports of unmanufactured tobacco,
from $62.4 to $49.5 million. The advance in exports of crude
foodstuffs from $221.4 to $227.6 million was largely due to
an increase in exports of corn, from $45.8 to $73.3 million.
Exports of wheat, however, fell from $123.9 to $97.6 million.
Exports of manufactured foodstuffs increased slightly from
$132.6 to $135.1 million.


-.,!.r-' of ,,irufictures declined from $296.6 million in
October to $285.0 million in November largely due to small
scattered decreases in exports of many of the individual com-
modities included in this economic class.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
menats to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
res are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Securist 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 he 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, hut 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 seapori. border point, or airport of exportation. It is based on the selling price
(or coat if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the
port of exportation. Transportation and other coats beyond the United States port of
exportation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in
price level.


RF lIABILFIY: The statistics presented in this report are based partly on sample
data and therefore are subject to dIralngR 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 error 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 l' 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 figure of relatively small
magnitude.

Further information regarding coverage, evaluation, 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 foreign Commerce and N..-Ration of the United States.
