SUMMARY REPORT September 1966 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E epemer November Z, 1966


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
reported today that the increase in U.S. exports of domestic
merchandise, unadjusted for seasonal change,1 2 from $2,314.8
million in August to $2,456.9 million in September, reflected
increases in most of the 10 commodity sections. The Bureau
noted, however, that due to unusual delays in receipt of export
documents, the September data include an unusually large
carryover of transactions which normally would have been
included in the prior month's statistics. As indicated in the






^See the September t966 issue of Report FT 900-E for season-
ally adjusted figures on total domestic and foreign exports,ex-
cluding Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments. Sea-
sonally adjusted data are not available for domestic exports
only or on a commodity basis.
2'Month-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.


August issue of this report, it is es ite that the carryove
of August shipments into September to a
million. No breakdown of this carryover b
able.


Individual sections showing more notable increases included
machinery and transport equipment; miscellaneous manu-
factured articles; and food and live animals. Among those
registering decreases were chemicals; and animal and vegetable
oils and fats.


Commodities or groups of commodities showing increases
from August to September included passenger cars; passenger
car and truck parts for assembly; fruits, nuts and vegetables
except oil nuts; and unmanufactured tobacco. Among com-
modities or groups of commodities for which decreases were
reported were soybeans, except canned or prepared; com-
mercial aircraft, new; copper and alloys and organic chemicals.


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 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 or 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 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.


USCOI'M-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 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.
