SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


November 1964


FOR RELEASE
January 14, 1965


EXPORT TRADE


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the slight decline in United States exports of
domestic merchandise (including Department of Defense Military
Assistance Pr- rami -C.rarn -Aid shipments), from $2,257.5 million
in October tc J2.2?-.-. -'llion in November,1 resulted from
decreases in exports of all of the economic classes of commod-
ities except crude foodstuffs. The November 1964 domestic
merchandise export total was about 8 percent hicfher than the
November 1963 total of $2,079.1 million.

With "'2.ar. Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
the "al ie ..:' November exports of domestic merchandise was
$2,158.3 million, about 3 percent less than the October total
of $2,226.1 million but about 8 percent more than the November
1963 total of $2,003.1 million.

Exports of semimanufactures fell from $349.5 million in October
to $334.5 million in November reflecting in part decreases in
exp.r -- of coal-tar and other cyclic chemical products, from
$24.6 to $18.9 million: nitrogenous chemical fertilizer mate-
rials, from $5.4 to $2.9 million: and aluminum semimanufactures,
from $15.0 to $12.8 million. However, exports of crude vege-
table oils and fats, also included in this economic class, rose
from $4.6 to $9.7 million. The decrease in exports of finished
manufactures, from $1,252.6 to $1,237.6 million, was due in large

The decline in exports :" 'r F'er.is from $288.9 million
in October to $280.8 rii. _r .. 'e-,t r resulted from decreases
in exports of coal, from $46.7 to $34.8 million, and oilseeds,
from $87.4 to $79.7 million, which were partly offset by a rise
in exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $38.6 to $50.9 mil-
lion. Although the decline in exports of manufactured foodstuffs
from October to November was small, from $155.9 to $153.8
million, sizable counterbalancing changes were reported in
exports of some of the individual commodities included in this
economic class. The more noticeable of these were decreases
in exports of wheat flour, from $15.5 to $10.4 million, and
dried and evaporated fruits, from $9.2 to $4.2 million, and
an increase in exports of manufactured foodstuffs exported for
relief or charity, from $12.7 to $17.2 million.


During the period, exports of crude foodstuffs rose from $210.7
million in October to $235.7 : '. -.'.-- as increases
in exports of wheat, from $93.4 to $111.2 million, and corn,
from $59.0 to $76.3 million were pa .tl offset by a drop in
exports of fresh or frozen fruits, from $14.9 to $8.6 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment ship-
means to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate fig-
area 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 llin,, 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 $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 I" 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.
