SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-Z


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau ofthe Census, Department of Commerce, announced
todaythat U.S. exports of domestic merchandise, unadjusted for
seasonal change', were $2,105.3 million in January, 1966.3 The
total reported for December 1965 was $2,576.0 million.4

The Schedule B section Machinery and Transport Equipment
accounted for $798.0 million of the January 1966 total. With-
in this category ame leading coaodity groupings or individual
comaodities were: Power generating machinery (including en-
gines), $59.8 million; agricultural machinery and parts and
tractors (excluding tractor parts), $48.6 million; office ma-
chinery and computers, $45.2 million; construction, excavating,
mining machines and related machinery and parts (excluding con-
tractorse wheel type tractors but including industrial type),
$70.0 millic; passenger car and truck parts and accessories,
new, for assembly, $62.0 million; and aircraft and pans (parts


lres 'Special Notice- on page 8 of this report.
2Bee the January 1966 Issue of Report FT 900-E for season-
ally 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.
LThe data on Department of Defense Military Assistance
program--Orant-Aid shipments reported for December 1965 would
ordinarily have been included in the January 1966 statistics.
Because of timing difficulties, the December 1965 Grant-Aid
data mill be Included in the February 1966 statistics, and
from then on such shipments will be included in the export
statiastce on a 2-montha' delayed basis.
HMonth-to-month changes in exports and similar series
often reflect primarily irregular movements. For example the
dock strike in 1965 accentuated irregularities in monthly
coverage for early months of 1965 and revisions in commodity
classificationa as of January 1966 had a similar effect on
the January 1966 data. (Reporting in terms of obsolete
classifioatione resulted in about #50 million being excluded
from the recorded January total). Cumulations of data over
three or four month periods or longer would be desirable
under normal situations to Identify underlying trends. Pe-
riode as much as twice as long might be required for situa-
tions such as the dac. strike in 1965.


excluding tires, engines, and electrical parts), $71.4 million.
Exports of Schedule B section Food and Live Animals. another
major category in January, totaled $337.5 million. Within this
category, leading items were wheat (unmilled) at $91.2 million
and corn, unmilled, at $66.9 million. Principal components of
the total of $260.3 million for Schedule B section Manufactured
Goods Classified Chiefly by Materials were textiles (excluding
fibers and clothing) at $40.3 million, iron and steel mill pro-
ducts at $42.7 million, and non-ferrous base metals (excluding
ore and scrap, uranium and silver) at $45.7 million. The total
of $231.6 million for Schedule B section Crude Materials. Ined-
ible. except Fuels, reflected among other commodities exports
of $54.6 million of soybeans, except canned or prepared. The
balance of the January overall export total was accounted for
by the remaining six Schedule B sections.

For all of 1965, U.S. exports of domestic merchandise came
to $27,003.3 million. Of this total, exports of Schedule B
section, Machinery and Transport Equipment accounted for
$10,015.7 million. Included in this Schedule B section total
were: construction, excavating, mining machines and related
machinery and parts (excluding contractors' wheel type tractors
but including industrial type), $933.8 million; power generating
machinery (including engines), $841.4 million; agricultural
machinery and parts and tractors (excluding tractor parts),
$634.1 million; automobiles and other road motor vehicles and
parts (parts excluding tires, engines, and electrical parts),
1,975.5 million;and aircraft and parts (parts excluding tires,
engines, and electrical parts), $1,091.0 million. The total of
$4,003.8 million for Schedule B section Food and Live Animals
reflected exports of $1,063.6 million of wheat (unmilled) and
$832.7 million of corn, unmilled among others. Other major
Schedule B section export totals for 1965 were: Crude Materi-
als. Inedible. Except Fuels. $2,855.6 million (including soy-
beans, except canned or prepared, at $650.1 million); Chemicals,
$2,401.8 million (including organic chemicals at $669.0 mil-
lion); and Manufactured Goods Classified Chiefly by Material.
$3,257.8 million. Included in the latter were iron and steel
mill products, $606.8 million; textiles (excluding fibers and
clothing) $527.8 million; and non-ferrous base metals (exclud-
ing ore and scrap, uranium and silver) $539.3 million. The re-
mainder of the 1965 overall export total was distributed over
the other five Schedule B sections.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include gvernmeot as well as nongovernment shipments
to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense
Military Assistane Progranm-Grat-Aid shipments (for which separate figures ae
shown in the lootnotes 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 o exports under P.L. 480 and related laws may be
obtained from the Economic Rseach Service and the Foreign Agricultural Service of
th Department of Agriculture.) Shipmets to U.S. armed forces and diplomatic missions
ahbed for their own use are excluded from the export statistics. U.S. trade with Puerto
Rico and US. pomassiona is not included in this port, but the export trade of Puerto
Rico with foreign cobiea 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 mat included in the export statistics.

VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the export statistics is the value at
the seaport, beder point, or airport of exportation. It is based on the selling price (as
cost if not sold) and includes inld freight, insurance, and other charges to the port
of exportation. Transportation ad other costs beyond the United States port of expor-
tation -s excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in price level.


RELIABILITY: The tatistics presented in this report are based partly on sample
data and therefore arre 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 550,000 (the largest
variation from rounding of figures) or less than 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 s the carry-over of data from month to month.
erors in reporting or processing, the estimation of shipments valued under 5100 (esti-
mated data for such shipmentsare included an 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, parUculaily
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.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT 3 1262 08587 1969 *

RESUMPTION OF PUBLICATION OF REVISED MONTHLY SUMMARY S
REPORT, FT 930-E, EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY
Publication of the monthly Summary Report FT 930-E, Export Trade by Commodity,.
is being resumed effective with this release covering the January 1966 export
statistics. Report FT 930-E was not issued during 1965, pending completion of
the work of preparing a revised format.

In general, the data being shown in the revised Report FT 930-E include the
Schedule B, Revised, Section totals, selected Division and Group totals, and
within the Groups, totals for certain combinations of commodities and for
individual leading commodities. It is expected that the data will more clearly
reflect the current patterns or highlights of U.S. export trade and will better
satisfy a growing need for U.S. statistics in a form readily comparable with
trade data of other countries. An added feature of the revised FT 930-E will be
the presentation of cumulative year-to-date data, both for the current year and
the prior year.

In order to provide the user of the Report with some historical data in terms of
the revised commodity coverage of the FT 930-E, the January 1966 Report presents
annual commodity totals for the years 1964 and 1965. However, in a number of
instances the 1964 data are not completely comparable with 1965-1966 data. This
results from the fact that an exact conversion cannot be made in all cases be-
tween the 1965 Schedule B, Revised, and the 1964 Schedule B. For some commodity
totals, where it is believed the comparability is particularly limited, the 1964
column contains an N.A. (Not Available). The coverage of commodities in the
Report FT 930-E in terms of the 1965 Schedule B, Revised, and the 1964 Schedule
B is shown i.n a supplement to the Report, a copy of which will be sent shortly
to all subscribers to the FT 930-E and to other interested persons upon request..

While the series of data shown in the issues of FT 930-E prior to 1965 are no
longer being published for distribution, users may, of course,maintain any
individual commodity series .n which they may have a continued interest by ref-
erence to the monthly FT 410, Exports of United States and Foreign Merchandise,
Commodity by Country of Destination, or to monthly machine tabulations contain-
ing export data placed on public reference in certain field offices of the
Department of Commerce throughout the United States and in Washington, D.C.
Further information concerning these sources of data as well as copies of the
supplement cited above can be obtained upon request to the Foreign Trade Divi-
sion, Bureau of the Census, Washington, D.C., 20233.
