SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


May 1964


FOR RELEASE
July 15, 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 $2,170.3 million in April to $2,225.5 million in May',
an increase of about three percent, reflected increases in
exports of all of the economic classes of commodities. The May
1964 domestic merchandise export total was about four percent
higher than the May 1963 total of $2,142.9 million. These fig-
ures include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
May exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $2,173.2
million, about four percent higher than the April total of
$2,084.0 million and about six percent higher than the May 1963
total of $2,049.5 million.

The increase in exports of finished rumanufa: t'ure.s, from $1,271.8
million in April to $1,295.2 million in Ma3, rfcClected increases
in exports of most of the commodities included in this economic
class, the more notable being increases in exports of construc-
tion, excavating, mining, oil field, and related machinery, from
$85.8 to t100.5 million and motor trucks and busses, from $23.1
to $33.4 million. However, these increases were largely offset
by substantial decreases in exports of aircraft, parts and
accessories, from $138.5 to $9c.3 million and lubricating oil,

'See the May 1964 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-adjusted
figures on total exports excluding mi it L-ry Assistance Program--Grant-Aid
shiammnts. Seasonally adjusted data are not available on a ccmnodity basis.


from $22.6 to $15.5 million. The rise in exports of crude
materials, from $207.6 to $219.1 million reflected gains in ex-
ports of coal, from $33.7 to $43.3 million and inedible animal
and fish oils and greases, from $12.8 to $20.1 million, which
were partly offset by a decrease in exports of oilseeds, from
$48.8 to $41.1 million.


Exports of manufactured foodstuffs rose from $134.9 to $144.8
minilion mainly due to increases in exports of dairy products,
from $11.5 to $21.1 million, and meat and meat products, from
$13.1 to $17.1 million, which weie partly offset by a drop in
exports of milled rice, from $26.7 to $18.7 million. Exports of
semimanufactures climbed from $323.4 to $333.3 million. The
more notable changes in the level of exports of individual items
included in this economic class were increases in exports of
sawmill products, from $8.7 to $11.7 million; tin mill products,
from $3.5 to $6.9 million, and decreases in exports of crude
vegetable oils and fats, from $10.0 to $5.0 million, and coal tar
and other cyclic chemical products, from $22.1 to $17.8 million.
Although the overall increase in exports of crude foodstuffs
was negligible, from $232.5 to $233.1 million, sizable counter-
balancing changes were reported in exports of individual items
included in this economic class. Increases in exports of wheat,
from $129.7 to $131.3 million; "other grains" (except corn),
from $15.0 to $24.1 million; and fruits, fresh or frozen, from
$7.8 to $10.5 million, were offset by decreases in exports of
corn, from $57.8 to $47.6 million, and crude foodstuffs exported
for relief or charity, from $7.5 to $1.3 million.


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-
sees are shows 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.


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.

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
statentent, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
