SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


FOR RELEASE
April 16, 1964


The Bureau of the Census, Department of xo:unerce, anounce
today that the decline in United States exports oI doest
merchandise from $2,090.6 million in Javuary to $2,063.0 ..-
lion in February', a decrease of about one percent, refle Leu
decreases in exports of three of the economic classes of com-
modities, crude seianufactures, and crude mate-
rials which were partly offset by increases in exports of the
two remaining economic classes of commodities, manufactured
foodstuffs and finished maufIactures. The February 1964
domestic merchandise ? p-r* total was about the same as the
February 1963 total : 7 :.. 74.0 million. These figures include
data on Department of Defense Military Assistance Program--
Grant-Aid shipments.

-ur ,Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments,
February exports of domestic merchandise were valued at
i, ",.. million, two percent less than the January total of
'1,- 4.1 million and about one percent less than the February
1963 total of $1,990.5 million.




iSee the February 1964 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seas nally-
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance Prcgram--
Grant-Aid shipments. Seasonally adjusted data are net available on a
commodity basis.


of crude foostufs fro:- $227.4 million in
illio n eruar was largely due to a
ort of corn, fr $63.6 to 6.6 million.
s f istillte and residual fuel oil, from
$7.8 to $3.9 million; industrial chemicals, fro $.2 to $33.6
million; and iro d ates eets ad stris, from $20.8
to $18.5 million co ted for ost f the decline in exports
of semLmanufa tures fr $30. to $289.5 million. LyExports of
crude materials fell fr $247.4 t $237.9 lion reflecting
in part decreases in exports of sitanufartured cotton, from
$79.0 to $74.9 million ad coal, from $3.4 to $31.1 million.

During the period, exports of ._. 1 .i rose from
$127.7 to $137.3 million owing chiefly to higher levels of
exports of milled rice from $22.4 to $28.3 million and wheat
flour, frO $7.4 to $9.6 million. At oh the over-all in-
crease in exports of f _____ :.-cn January to
February was small, fr million, counter-
balancing changes were reported in exports of many of the indi-
vidual co:11oditi s i include i tnis ec onomic class. The more
notable of these were motor trucks and busses, from $22.3 to
$27.8 million; construction, exavating, mining, oil field, and
related machinery, fru $76.8 to $81.2 million; agricultural
machines, implements and part, from $15.8 to $20.1 million;
lubricating oil, from $15.1 to $18.3 million; aircraft, parts
and accessories, froi $114.9 to $92.1 111 ilway
transportation equipment, from $10.1 -. :. .


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
imets 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
ana 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 -, linhe 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 lihanges in
price level


USCOMM-DC


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-
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.

IFurther information regarding +overage, valuation, compilation procedures and preci.
sion of export data is contained in the foreword of Ieport No FT 410. For complete
statement, see foreword in I foreign Commerce and Navigation of the I nitedl Slates
