SUMMARY REPORT December 1963 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E December 1963 February 25, 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 $2,079.1 million in November to $2,131.6 mil-
lion in December,1 an increase of about three percent, resulted
primarily from increases in exports of finished manufactures,
semimanufactures, crude foodstuffs, and crude materials. These
totals include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $2,068.5 million
in December, a level about three percent above the November
total of $2,003.1 million.

The Bureau also reported that United States annual exports of
domestic merchandise in 1963 amounted to $22,922 million, a gain
of about seven percent from the 1962 annual total of $21,403
million.

The rise in exports of finished manufacture_. from $1,149.9 mil-
lion in November to $1,185.1 million in D.:cember was due, in
part, to increases in exports of automobile parts for assembly


1See the December 1953 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
ccamodl by basis.


and replacement, from $72.1 to $80.1 million; railway transpor-
tation equipment, from $8.8 to $17.4 million; lubricating oil,
from $17.3 to $21.8 million; metalworking machines and parts,
except machine tools and parts, from $14.0 to $18.3 million;
and construction, excavating, mining, oil field, and related
machinery, from $78.8 to $83.0 million. However, exports of
aircraft, parts and accessories dropped from $107.4 to $86.4
million. Exports of semimanufactures advanced from $285.0 to
$297.1 million as small increases in exports of most of the
individual items included in this economic class were largely
offset by a drop in exports of industrial chemicals, from $37.8
to $28.4 million. The increase in exports of crude fc.L-tu.Aff
from $227.6 to $232.6 million was mainly due to a rise in ex-
ports of wheat, from $97.6 to $107.0 million. Exports of crude
materials advanced from $281.6 to $285.0 million. This change
was primarily the result of a rise in exports of unmanufactured
cotton, from $67.8 to $86.1 million, which was largely offset
by decreases in exports of coal, from $45.2 to $37.3 million;
unmanufactured tobacco, from $49.5 to $45.6 million; and oil-
seeds, from $64.9 to $61.5 million.

Exports of manufactured foodstuffs declined from $135.1 to
$131.9 million. This change was due to a drop in exports of
manufactured foodstuffs exported for relief or charity by
individuals and private agencies, fro .6 million,
and small scattered decreases by e.3S
included in this economic class, e. by
increases in exports of milled .1 t. i-
lion, and wheat flour, from $9 15 5.7 rrulli.n.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


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, hit 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
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.


RFLIAW.LITY: The statistics presented in this reporT IelBlae 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.

1Based on commodity classifications in Schedule B, Statistical Classification of Domestic and Foreign Commodities Exported from the United
States. A Supplement to Report No. FT 930-E showing the Schedule B numbers included in the individual economic class and commodity totals is
available on request includes $63.1 million of Military Assistance Program Grant-Aid shipments ($22.1 million to Western Europe). Includes
$76.0 million of Military Assistance Proqram--Grant-Aid shipments ($22.7 million to Western Europe). 4Includes $38.3 million of Military Assist-
ance Program--Grant-Aid shipments ($9.5 million to Western Europe. "The economic class, and leading commodity totals shown for December 1962
and for the 1962 monthly averages do not reflect corrections published during 1963 and, therefore, do not add to the revised over-all totals shown for
these periods in the above table. The December 1962 and the 1962 monthly average totals, unrevised, were $1,876.8 and $1,779.9 million, re-
spectively. Revised totals which reflect all corrections published with the statistics through those for December 1963 will be available shortly and
may be obtained from the Bureau on request. 6 includes $60.6 million of Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments ($22.5 million to
Western Europe). 7See the January 1961 issue of Report No. 410 for explanation of Special Category commodities and list of commodities in-
