SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the- Census, Department of Commerce, announced today to increases in exports of construction, excavating, mining,
that the increase in United States exports of domestic merchan- oil field, and related machinery, from $81.2 to $93.0 million;


dise from $2,063.0 million in February to $2,151.3 million in


automobile parts for assembly and replacement, from $74.1 to


March1, an increase of about four percent, reflected increases $81.0 million; tractors, from $22.6 to $28.2 million; and machine


in exports of finished manufactures, semimanufactures, and crude
foodstuffs, which were partly offset by decreases in exports of
crude materials and manufactured foodstuffs. The March 1964
domestic merchandise export total was about three percent higher
than the March 1963 total of $2,097.4 million. These figures
include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program-Grant,-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
March exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $2,099.2
million, about seven percent higher than the February total of
$1,966.0 million and about three percent higher than the March
1963 total of $2,031.2 million.

The increase in exports of finished manufactures from $1,188.5
million in February to $1,245.3 million in March was due in part




iSee the March 1964 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-adjusted
figures on total exports, excluding Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid
shipmer.ts. Seasonally adjusted data are not available on a commodity basis.


tools and parts, from $25.3 to $30.9 million. Exports of semi-
manufactures increased from $289.5 to $326.4 million largely as
a result of small increases in exports of most of the individual
items included in this economic class, the largest of which was
coal-tar and other cyclic chemical products, from $17.4 to $22.0
million. The increase in exports of crude foodstuffs, from
$209.7 to $228.3 million, was primarily due to an increase in
exports of wheat, from $116.8 to $145.9 million.

Exports of crude materials fell from $237.9 to $215.5 million
owing chiefly to decreases in exports of unmanufactured cotton,
from $74.9 to $64.4 million, and unmanufactured tobacco, from
$28.6 to $19.1 million. However, exports of inedible animal and
fish oils and greases, also included in this economic class,
advanced from $10.6 to $16.1 million. Exports of manufactured
foodstuffs decreased slightly from $137.3 to $135.8 million as a
result of small scattered decreases in most of the commodities
included in this economic class. However, an increase in exports
of dairy products, from $7.6 to $12.8 million, counteracted the
general decline.


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 Aassistance Program-Groet-Aid shipments (for which separate fig.
res 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
anad 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, Iut 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 coat if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the
poat of exportation. Transportation and other costa beyond the United States port of
exportation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in
price level.


USCOMWNDC


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 then 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-
tares, exclusive of Special Category Type 1" but excluded from other totals), and the
omission of parcel post shipments valued under $0S. 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.
