SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


FOR RELEASE
March 24, 1964


January COMMODITY



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 $2,131.6 million in December 1963 to $2,090.6
million in January 1964,1 a decrease of about two percent, was
primarily due to decreases in exports of crude materials,
crude foodstuffs, and manufactured foodstuffs. These totals
include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance Pro-
gram--Grant-Aid shipments.


With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $1,998.1 million
in January 1964, a level about three percent below the December
1963 total of $2,068.5 million.


The drop in exports of crude materials from $285.0 million in
December 1963 to $247.4 mill ion in January 1964 was chiefly
due to decreases in exports of unmanufactured tobacco from
$45.6 to $28.8 million; oilseeds, from $61.5 to $48.0 million;

aSe the January 1964 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-
adjusted figures on total exports, erxluding Military Assistance Pro-
grim--Grant-Aid shbipents. Seasonally-adjusted data are not available
on a canmodity basis.


and unmanufactured cotton, from $86.1 to $79.0 million. Exports
of crude foodstuffs declined from $232.6 to $227.4 million.
This change was primarily the result of decreases in exports of
corn, front $73.4 to $63.6 million, and fresh or dried vege-
tables, from $11.1 to $8.5 million, which were partly offset
by a rise in exports of wheat, from $107.0 to $116.6 million.
Exports of manufactured foodstuffs decreased from $131.9 to
$127.7 million due, in part, to a drop in exports of wheat
flour, from $15.7 to $7.4 million.


The increase in exports of semimanufactures from $297.1 to
$300.7 million was largely accounted for by an increase in ex-
ports of industrial chemicals, from $28.4 to $37.2 million.
Although the advance in finished manufactures was alight, from
$1,185.1 to $1,187.4 million, sizable counterbalancing changes
were reported in exports of some of the individual items in-
cluded in this economic class. Increases in exports of air-
craft, parts, and accessories, from $86.4 to $114.9 million;
and radio and television apparatus, from $34.3 to $42.2 million,
were largely offset by decreases in exports of passenger cars,
from $42.0 to $31.2 million; railway transportation equipment,
from $17.4 to $10.1 million; lubricating oil from $21.8 to $15.1
million; and construction, excavating, mining, oil field, and
related machinery fran $83.0 to $76.8 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government well as nongovernment ship-
monte to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
urn are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security Program economic as-
sistane shipments; and shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L. 480 (The
Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The
sprarte information which isn 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
amd diplomatic missions abmrod for their own use are excluded from export statistics.
United States trade with Puerto Rico and United States possessions is mot included in
thi 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-
poat statistics.
VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the export statistics is the value at
tr 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 coata beyond the United States poat of
exportation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in
pfise level.


USCOM-IDC


RELIABILITY: The statistics presented in this report are based partly on sample
date and therefore are subject to sampling variation that may cease 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, errorm 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 I' but excluded from other totals), and the
omission of parcel post shipments valued under I50. 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
statenet, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
