SUMMARY REPORT December FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E December 1964 February 23, 1965


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the increase in United States exports of domestic
mr.e rrsr.c, from $2,242.4 million in November to $2,577.6 mil-
lion in December,1'2'3 an increase of about 15 percent, resulted
primarily from increases in exports of finished manufactures,
semimanufactures, crude materials, and manufactured foodstuffs.
The December domestic merchandise export total was about 18 per-
cent higher than the December 1963 total of $2,186.2 million.
These totals include data on Department of Defense Military
Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments. With Military Assist-
ance Pr.ogr'r:--'.ri,--Aid rhpmren+se excluded, exports of domestic
merchandise were valued a'. 2. .. .5 million in December, a level
about 17 percent higher than the November total of $2,158.3
rm il io-,.
The Bureau also stated that annual exports of domestic
merchandise, i: -ir Department of Defense 11i'. r7 Assistance
PFrog ra--'rw.'.-Aid shipments, were valued at $26,086 million
during calendar year 1964, representing an increase of about 13
percent or $3,026 million over the comparable calendar year 1963
total of $23,060 million. This change reflected increases in
annual exports of all of the economic classes of commodities
as follows: finished manufactures, from $13,372.8 to $14,893.8
million; semimanufactures, from $3 341.3 to $4.. .2 million;
crude mi'.-i-i., arom '.,: .7 to $2,897.5 million; crude food-
stuffs, :1n ,2,273.3 to ;, -'...' million and manufactured
foodstuffs, from $1,495.8 to $1,687.4 million. Military Assist-

It ap;e.f-rs that the December 1964 export total may reflect export
ahilments made during that month in anticipation of the strike at east and
gulf coast ports which eventually began January 11, 1965. However, the
Bureau does not have information as the the extent of the effect of the
atr-it- on the December export activity.
3Th. December 19 4 exr.-rt. figure also contains about $80 million in
shipments w rich r I.nr .y -could have been carried over for inclusion in
the data for January 1965. These are export shipments inadequately
reported each month and requiring investigation and verification for
statistical purposes. Because of the introduction of the 1965 Schedule B
cxmnodity classifications (beginning in January 1965), and the large amount
of time required to convert the 1964 Schedule B commodity codes for these
shipments to the new 1965 codes, an extraordinary effort was made to
verify these items in time to include them with the lDecember 1964 data.


these totals, were valued at $818.2 million
to $920.0 million in 1963.


in 1964 as compared


The rise in exports of I : i '.-J r -.. :-E from $1,237.6
million in November to $1,44'.-. r.,11,:.- L-.-ri et was due in
part to increases in exports of machine tools and parts (ex-
cluding Special Category, Type 1), from $27.1 to $40.8 million;
passenger cars, from $27.9 to $41.3 million; construction,
excavating, mining, oil field, and related machinery, from
$81.9 to $94.2 million; office, I : i "., and computing
machines and parts, from $34.2 to $44.4 million; power genera-
ting machinery, from $30.7 to $39.8 million; railway trans-
portation equipment, from $12.2 to $21.0 million; commercial
motor trucks and busses, from $24.3 to $33.0 million; textile,
sewing, and shoe machinery, from $14.6 to $22.4 million; paper
and manufactures, from $30.0 to $37.4 million; steel mill manu-
factures, from $12.8 to $19.3 million; and tractors, from $23.9
to $30.4 million. Exports of aircraft, parts and accessories,
also included in this economic class, decreased from $95.3 to
$87.0 million. The rise in exports of -T : i t r r from
$334.5 to $410.3 million reflected increases in exports of mos
of the individual items included in this economic class. The
more noticeable of these increases were in exports of copper
semimanufactures, from $24.5 to $34.0 million; plastics and
resin materials, from $30.5 to $37.6 million; coal-tar and other
cyclic chemical products, from $18.9 to $25.2 million; wood
pulp, from $14.5 to $20.4 million; and crude vegetable oils and
fats, from $9.7 t.: ti-. rill;-..,.

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-Granm. td shipments (for which separate fig-
ures 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 selling price
(or cost if not sold) sad 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 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.
