SUMMARY REPORT August 1964
FT 930-E August 1964


FOR RELEASE
October 12, 1964


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $2,088.1 million in July to $1,941.6 million
in August,1 a drop of about seven percent, resulted from de-
creases in exports of all the economic classes of commodi-
ties except manufactured foodstuffs. The August 1964 domestic
merchandise export total was about three percent higher than
the August 1963 total of $1,879.2 million. These figures
include data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments.2

Vith Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments ex-
cluded, the value of August exports of domestic merchandise
was $1,868.5 million, about seven percent less than the July
total of $2,013.4 million but about five percent more than
the August 1963 total of $1,786.7 million.

The drop in exports of finished manufactures, from $1,208.3
million in July to $1,118.2 million In August, was partly due
to decreases in exports of office, accounting, and computing
machines and parts, from $36.6 to $28.1 million; metalworki,*
machines and parts, except machine tools and parts, from
$20.2 to $14.3 million; tractors, from $29.4 to $24.4 million
and power generating machinery, from $27.4 to $23.0 million.

'See the August 1964 issue of Beport No. FT 900-1 for seasonally ad-
juated figears total exports excluding Military Assistance Program-
Grant-Aid shipments. Seasonal ly adjusted data are not available on a
cmnaodity basis.
2See asterisk (*) footnote on page 4 of the tables.


However, exports of automobile parts for assembly and replace-
ment rose from $59.3 to $68.7 million, as did exports of air-
craft, parts and accessories, from $108.4 to $114.5 million.
Exports of crude materials fell from $252.9 million in July
to $190.3 million in August, chiefly due to a substantial
decrease in exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $91.5 to
$16.6 million, which was partly offset by rises in exports of
coal, from $38.6 to $49.5 million, and oilseeds, from $33.9
to $40.6 million. Exports of semimanufactures declined from
$333.1 million in July to $324.6 million in August, primarily
as the result of small negative changes in exports of copper
semimanufactures from $18.3 to $12.2 million; industrial
chemicals from $43.8 to $38.9 million; and wood pulp, from
$18.8 to $15.8 million. Counteracting these losses, however,
was an increase in exports of iron and steel plates, sheets,
and strips, from $19.5 to $24.5 million. Exports of crude
foodstuffs from July to August, decreased slightly from
$177.6 to $172.0 million. The more notable changes in the
level of exports of individual items included in this
economic class occurred in exports of wheat, which fell from
$91.7 to $80.1 million, and corn, which rose from $44.0 to
$56.3 million.


The advance in exports of manufactured foodstuffs from
$116.3 million in July to $136.5 million in August, was
attributed largely to increases in exports of wheat flour,
from $6.4 to $14.5 million; refined vegetable oils, fats,
and waxes, from $12.8 to $18.7 million; and canned fruits,
from $3.5 to $8.5 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as mongovernment ship.
meas ta foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defeses Militay Aoisaece Program-Crant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
M- -m shown is the footaotea of this report), MutMa Security Plarnm economic sB-
siatmue ship ts;, and shipments of agricult ral commodities under P.L 480 (The
Trade Developeuat s d Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The
separate iafamation which is available on exports under P.L. 480 and related laws
may be obtained froa the Economic Research Servie and the Foreign Agricultural
Service of the Departmeat of Agricaultre. Shipmeats to United States armed forces
msa diplomatic uassionm abroad for their own use are excluded from export statistics.
United States trade with Paerto Rico and United State possessions is not included in
this report, but the export trade of Paerto Ricoe with foreign countries is included as a
pat of the United States export trade. Merhandis shipped in transit through the
United States between foreign countries, mot entered an imports, is not included in ex-
poet statistics.
VALUATION: The valuation definition sed is the export statistics is the value at
the seaport, border point, or airport of exprtation. in based on the selling price
(or cout if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the
port of exportation. Transportation and other costas beyond the United States port of
exportetiom are excluded. None of the value* have been adjusted for changes in
rice level.


USCUMM-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 resaite 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 rending of figure) 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 enrou from such sources as the carry-over of data from
month to month, eron, 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 is the totals for "Finished manaufactres* and "All other finished manufac-
ties, exclusive of Special Category Type I" but excluded from other totals), and the
omission of parcel post shipments valued under W50. Although the effect of such
errors on the rounded totals is 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 ofatleport No. FT 410. For complete
statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.

"II has been learned that incomplete transmitials of Shipper's Export Declarations from an individual Customs port hove resulted in the undercounting
of January July 1964 export data by a total of approximately $55 million and calendar year 1963 data by approximately $65 million. Earlier years are
affected by smaller amounts. Undercounting in the individual months ranges from 56 to $10 million for January-July 1964, and from 53 to 18 million for
1963 Corrective action has been taken ro include shipments on a current basis beginning August 1964 and revisions will be made for the prior periods
or a later date Though the undercounting for individual months of 1063 and 19(4 is relatively minor (less than one-half of one percent) indications ore
