EXPORT TRADE BY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that U.S. exports of domestic merchandise, unadjusted for
seasonal change, were valued at $2,557.9 million in April as
capared to the March total of $2,778.4 million.1 2 The de-
crease in the overall total fran March to April reflected lower
levels of exports of 8 of the 10 Schedule B camodity sections.

Froa March to April, the Schedule B camnodity sections
showing the more notable decreases were machinery and transport
equipment, which fell from $1,043.7 to $959.7 million; food and


ISee the April 1966 issue of Report PI 900-E (Total Export
Trade) for seasonally adjusted figures on total exports,
excluding Department of Defense Military Assistance Program--
Grant-Aid shipments. Seasonally adjusted figures are not
available on exports of domestic merchandise or on a
commodity basis.
2Month-to-month changes in exports and similar series
often reflect primarily irregular movements. Cumulations
of data over 3 or 4 month periods are desirable to ider.tify
underlying trends.


live animals, from $442.2 to $403.0 million; chemicals, from
$258.0 to $218.3 million; miscellaneous manufactured articles,
from $187.6 to $150.4 million; manufactured goods classified
chiefly by material, fran $333.1 to $296.1 million; and inedible
crude materials except fuels, from $254.7 to $237.3 million.


Leading camodities or groups of camnodities contributing
to the overall decrease in exports of domestic merchandise
during the period were as follows: wheat; unmanufactured
tobacco; wheel type tracklaying tractors; unmilled corn; manu-
factured fertilizers; passenger cars (assembled); copper and
alloys--blister, refined, and mill shapes; nonferrous metal
ores and scrap; raw cotton (excluding linters and waste);
plastic materials; construction, excavating, and mining machines
and related machinery and parts; office machinery and computers;
paper and manufactures, including newsprint; and textiles,
excluding fibers and clothing.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as wellas nongovernment shipments
to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense
Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate figures are
shown in the footnotes of this report), Mutual Security Program economic assistance
shipments, and shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L. 480 (The Trade
Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The sepa-
rate 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 U.S. armed forces and diplomatic missions
abroad for their own use are excluded from the export statistics. U.S. trade with Puerto
Rico and U.S. possessions is not included in this report, but the export trade of Puerto
Rico with foreign countries is included as a part of the U.S. export trade. Merchandise
shipped in transit through the United States between foreign countries, not entered as
imports, is not included in the export 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 ..=llng price (or
cost if ,iot sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the port
of exportation. Transportation and other costs beyond the United States port of expor-
tation 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 ignored
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 individual
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 (esti-
mated data for such shipments are included in the over-all export total and in the totals
for"Commodities and transactions not classified according to kind" and "Low-value"
shipments, but excluded from other totals), and the omission of low-value parcel post
shipments. Although the effect of such errors on the rounded totals in this report is
probably small, the possibility of inaccuracy 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 Reports FT 410 and FT 420. For
complete statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United
States.
