March 21, 1967


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
reported today that U.S. exports of domestic merchandise,
including Department of Defense Military Assistance Program-
Grant-Aid shipments, were valued at $29,899.1 million in
calendar year 1966 representing an increase of about 10 per-
cent over the comparable calendar year 1965 total of $27,135.3
million. This change reflected increases in exports of 9 of the
10 Schedule B commodity sections. However, the bulk of the
increase was accounted for by increases in exports of 4 sections:
machinery and transport equipment; food and live animals;
chemicals; and inedible crude materials except fuels. Military
Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments totaled $940.5 million
in calendar year 1966 as compared to $778.8 million for calendar
year 1965.

Some of the individual commodities or groups of commodities
for which the reported values of domestic exports were greater
in 1966 than in 1965 were: wheat; passenger cars; grain
sorghums; passenger car and truck parts and accessories for
replacement; soybeans; tobacco; office machinery and computers;
manufactured fertilizers; paper and manufactures, including
newsprint: animal feeds; plastic materials; commercial trucks
and buses; hides and skins (except fur skins); air-conditioning
and refrigerating equipment; nonmetallic minerals; construction,
excavating, and mining machines, and related machinery and
parts; aircraft engines, including missile turbines and parts;
radio, TV, and other telecommunications equipment; automotive
engines; fruits, nuts, and vegetables (except oil nuts); and
textile, leather, and sewing machinery. Among commodities
or groups of commodities for which decreases in the value of


exports were reported from 1965 to 1 Wms and
boats; iron and steel mill products; dairy products and eggs;
cotton; crude and refined cottonseed oil; crude and refined
soybean oil; aircraft and parts; generators; inedible tallow and
grease, except wool grease; railway vehicles and parts; and iron
and steel scrap.



From November to December total U.S. exports of domestic
merchandise rose from $2,593.5 to $2.689.0 million 1 2 as
increases were reported in exports of 6 of the 10 Schedule B com-
modity sections. Higher levels of exports of machinery and
transport equipment, manufactured goods classified chiefly
by material, and chemicals accounted for most of the over-all
increase in exports from November to December. Sizable
but not completely offsetting, decreases were registered in
exports of food and live animals and inedible crude materials
except fuels.




1See the December 1966 issue of Report FZ 900-E (Total Export
Trade) for seasonally adjusted figures on total exports, exclud-
ing Department of Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid
shipments. Seasonally adjusted figures are not available on ex-
ports 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 identify underlying trends.


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 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 .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.


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.
