SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E Septembelr 11 .- November 3, 1964


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of cemierce, announced
today that the rise in United States exports of domestic mer-
chandise (including Department of Defense Military Assistance
Program--Irant-Aia shipments) from $1,941.6 million in August
to $2,111.9 million in September,1 an increase of about 9 per-
cent, reflected advances in exports of all of the economic
classes of commodities. The September 1964 domestic merchan-
dise export total was about 17 percent above the September 1963
total of $1,801.8 million.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the value of September exports of domestic merchandise was
$2,057.5 million, about 10 percent more than the August total
of $1,868.5 million and 18 percent more than the September 1963
total of $1,743.8 million.

Ex-ports of finished manufactures increased from $1,118.2 mil-
lion in August to $1,195.1 million in September. Some of the
larger changes influencing this movement included increases in
exports of automobile parts for assembly and replacement, from



1See the September 1964 issue of Report No. IT 900-E for seasonally
adjusted figures on total exports excluding Military Assistance Program--
Grant-Aid sbipments. Seasonally adjusted data are not available on a
caomodity basis.


$68.7 to $79.6 million; office, accounting, and computing
machines and parts, from $28.1 to $37.6 million; passenger cars,
from $16.8 to $21.4 million; and a drop in exports of aircraft,
parts, and accessories, from $114.5 to $78.8 million.

The rise in exports of crude foodstuffs, from $172.0 million in
August to $203.1 million in September, resulted primarily from
an increase in exports of wheat, from $80.1 to $108.3 million.
Exports of crude materials rose from $190.3 million in August
to $218.2 million in September, owing to a large rise in ex-
ports of tobacco, from $24.1 to $58.4 million, and a lesser
increase in exports of cotton, from $16.6 to $24.5 million.
Partly offsetting this was a decrease in exports of coal, from
$49.5 to $40.8 million. The gain in exports of semimanufac-
tures, from $324.6 million in August to $350.4 million in
September, was attributed to a series of small rises in exports
of most of the individual commodities included in this economic
class, the largest being increases in exports of copper semi-
manufactures, from $12.2 to $18.0 million, and industrial chem-
icals, from $38.9 to $43.7 million. Exports of manufactured
foodstuffs rose from $136.5 million in August to $145.2 million
in September, primarily due to increments in exports of canned
fruits, from $8.5 to $14.6 million, and milled rice, from $5.9
to $10.4 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
mots to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
se are shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security Program economic as-
mistmaes shipments, uad shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L 480 iThe
Trade Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The
separate iaformatiou 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
part of exportation. Transportation and other coats beyond the United States port of
exportation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in
price level.


RELABILITY: 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 $1100 (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
statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
