SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


May 1966


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMOD


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, increases were in. JibL crude materials, e .cpt fusl-, chemicals;
reported today that U.S. exports of domestic merchandise, and animal and vegetable oils, fats and waxes. Schedule B
unadjusted for seasonal change, increased slightly from $2,557.9 commodity sections showing declines were food and live animals;
million in April to $2,568.1 million in May.1 2 Increases were and commodities and transactions not classified by kind.
registered in exports of 6 of the 10 Schedule B commodity


sections during the period. The sections showing more notable


1See the May 1966 issue of Report FT 900-E for seasonally ad-
justed figures on total domestic and foreign exports, excluding
Military Assistance Program-.rant-Aid shipments. Seasonally ad-
justed data are not available for domestic exports only nor or 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 identify underlying trends


Commodities or groups of commodities showing moderate
to sizable increases during the period were as follows: metal
ores, concentrates and scrap; soybeans, except canned or
prepared; organic chemicals; manufactured fertilizers; inedible
tallow and grease except wool grease; and crude and refined
soybean oil. Among others, exports of grains and cereal
preparations and aircraft and parts decreased.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as 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 selling price (or
cost it .ot 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.


U3sCOt'-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 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 srrall 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.
