SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced to-
day that the one percent increase in United States exports of
domestic merchandise from .',r-'.5 million in June to $2,088.1
million in July,' resulted from increases in exports of crude
materials and semimanufactures, which were partly offset by
decreases in exports of manufactured foodstuffs, crude food-
stuffs, and finished manufactures. The July 1964 domestic mer-
chandise export total was about 16 percent higher than the July
1963 total of $1,797.1 million. These figures include data on
Dep,.rtment of Defense Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid
shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
July exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $2,013.4
million, slightly higher (about one percent) than the June total
of $1,999.5 million and about 19 percent higher than the July
1963 total of $1,692.7 million.

The rise in exports of crude materials, from $217.9 million in
June to $252.9 million in July, was attributed to a substantial
increase in exports of unmanufactured .cotton, from $50.7 to
$91.5 million. However, decreases were reported in exports of

coal, from $44.5 to $38.6 million, and unmanufactured tobacco,
from $30.3 to $26.1 million. Exports of semimanufactures, in-
creased from $330.9 to $333.1 million, mainly due to an increase
in exports of industrial chemicals, from $37.9 to $43.8 million,
which was largely offset by a fall in exports of iron and steel
plates, sheets, and strips, from $23.1 to $19.5 million.

The decline in exports of manufactured foodstuffs, from $125.9
million in June to $116.3 million in July, was accounted for by
decreases in exports of milled rice, from $15.9 to $8.7 million,
and lard, from $8.5 to $4.4 million. F J -r,..: of crude foodstuffs
fell from $182.1 to $177.6 million, as a decline in exports of
wheat, from $98.3 to $91.7 million, and small decreases in ex-
ports of many of the other items included in this economic class,
were partly offset by an advance in exports of corn, from $37.8
to $44.0 million. Although July exports of finished manufactures,
valued at $1,208.3 million, were only slightly less than the June
total of $1,210.6 million, there were several sizeable counter-
balancing changes reported in exports of individual commodities
included in this economic class. The more noticeable of these
were passenger cars, from $28.2 to $12.7 million; automobile
parts for assembly and replacement, from $70.2 to $59.3 million;
motor trucks and busses, from $32.5 to $24.1 million; railway
transportation equipment, from $13.4 to $8.5 million and aircraft,
parts, and accessories from $90.2 to $108.4 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-
wes are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security Program economic as-
*sitance 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
port 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 S50,000 (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 550. 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.
