SUMMARY REPORT FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E August 1966 October 4, 1966


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
reported today that the decrease in U.S. exports of domestic
merchandise, unadjusted for seasonal change,1 from $2,397.4
million in July to $2.314.8 million2 in August reflected
decreases in exports of 5 of the 10 commodity sections which
were partly offset by increases in exports of the remaining
sections. The Bureau noted, however, that because of delays
in receipt of certain export declarations the August total
is understated by an estimated $75 million. Data from these
documents will be included in the September statistics.


1See the August 1966 issue of Report ST 900-E for seasonally
adjusted figures on total domestic and foreign exports, exclud-
ing MIilitary Assistance Program--rant-Aid shipments. Season-
ally adjusted data are not available for domestic exports only
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 identify underlying
trends.


Individual sections showing the more notable decreases
were machinery and transport equipment, chemicals, and
commodities and transactions not classified according to
kind. Sizable increases were reported in exports of food
and live animals, inedible crude materials except fuels, and
beverages and tobacco.



Commodities or groups of commodities registering de-
creases from July to August included power generating
machinery; agricultural machinery and parts and tractors;
office machinery and computers and related machinery; con-
struction, excavating and mining machines; passenger cars,
and railway vehicles and parts.


Among commodities or groups of commodities for which
increases were reported were barley, wheat, cotton, unmanu-
factured tobacco, and coal and related products.


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 tables 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 if aot 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.
