SUMMARY REPORT April 1964 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E April 1964 June 9, 1964


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced today
that the increase in United States exports of domestic merchan-
dise from $2,151.3 million in March to $2,170.3 million in
April, an increase of about one percent, reflected increases in
exports of finished manufactures and crude foodstuffs, which
were partly offset by decreases in exports of crude materials,
semimanufactures, and manufactured foodstuffs. The April 1964
domestic merchandise export total was about seven percent higher
than the April 1963 total of $2,030.7 million. These figures
include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program--Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
April exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $2,084.0
million, about one percent below the March total of $2,099.2
million but about seven percent higher than the April 1963 total
of $1,941.4 million.

The increase in exports of finished ranufaic 'ur- from $1,245.3
million in March to $1,271.8 million in April was due to a sub-

'See the April 1964 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 cannodity basis.


stantial increase in exports of aircraft parts and accessories,
from $92.8 to $138.5 million, and to a lesser increase in exports
of lubricating oil, from $17.5 to $22.6 million. Partly counter-
balancing these increases, however, were decreases in exports of
construction, excavating, mining, oil field, and related machin-
ery, from $93.0 to $85.8 million, and machine tools and parts,
from $30.9 to $25.9 million. Although, the increase in exports
of crude foodstuffs from March to April was relatively small,
from $228.3 to $232.5 million, sizable counterbalancing changes
were noted in exports of some of the individual items included
in this economic class. The more notable of these were corn,
from $45.9 to $57.8 million, crude foodstuffs exported for
relief or charity, from $3.2 to $7.5 million, and wheat, from
$145.9 to $129.7 million.

The decrease in exports of crude materials from $215.5 million
in March to $207.6 million in April was primarily due to a drop
in exports of cotton, from $64.4 to $51.7 million. Small de-
creases were reported in exports of the two remaining economic
classes of commodities, .. raic ar5.'a:u., from $326.4 to $323.4
million, and manufactured foodstuffs, from $135.8 to $134.9
million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
senats to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
uses 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, 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 selling price
(or cost if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the
poet 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.


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 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 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.
