SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


March 1966


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODI


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Cormerce, announced
today that U.S. exports of domestic merchandise, unadjusted for
seasonal change, were $2,778.4 million in March 1966. The
total reported for February 1966 was $2,264.0 million.2

The rise reflected increases in all of the individual Schedule B
conmodity sections. The Schedule B sections showing the more


aSee the larch 1966 issue of Report FT 900-F for seasonally
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Department of
Defense Mfilitary Assistance Programn--rant-Atd shipments. Sea-
aonally adjusted figures are not available on experts oJ
domestic merchandise or on a commodity basis.
2fonth-to-month changes in exports and similar series often
reflect primarily irregular movements. Cumulations of data ouer
3 or 4 month periods are desirable to identify underlying
trends.


notable increases and accounting for tiheBUZiof the overall
increase from February to March we"e machinery and transport
equipment; food ana live animals; manufactured goods classified
chiefly by materials; chemicals; and miscellaneous manufactured
articles.

Leading commodities or groups of commodities contributing to the
overall increase in U.S. exports during the period were auto-
mobiles and other road motor vehicles and parts; construction,
excavating, mining and related machiner- and parts; complete
commercial aircraft; wheel type tracklaying tractors; electric
power apparatus and switchgear; office machinery and computers;
wheat; corn; copper ana alloys--blister, refined, and rrll
shapes; organic chemicals; and scientific, medical, optical,
photographic, and measuring and controlling instruments.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


CbIVERAGE; 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
alown in the footnotes o[ 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-
Wate information which is available on exports under P L 480 and related laws may be
obtained from the Economic Research Service and the Foreign Ag:icultural Service of
the Department of Agriculture.) Shipments to U S. armed forces and diplomatic missions
abroad loi their own use are excluded from the export staustics U S. trade with Puerto
Rico and U.S. possessions is not Included in this report, but the export trade of Puerto
Rieo 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 not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and others charges to the port
of exportation. Transportation and other costs beyond the United Stales port of expor.
station 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 sar.ple
data and therefore are subject to sampling variation that may cause tnem to aiflcr
somewhat from the results which would have been obtained from processing all export
documents. For the figures shown in this report the sampling vanabilily can be ignoredd
since the probable uarsability due to sampling is either less than 550,000 (the l.igest
variation from rounding of figures) ao less than a trisval percentage of the indiiidual
totals shown. In addition to the effects of sampling varnation, the data ,n this report
are subject to errors from such sources as the cary-oaer of data from month to month.
errors in reporting or processing, the estimation of shipments valued under 5100 reill
mated data for such shipmentsare 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 lou-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 sn all magnitude.

Further information regarding coverage. valuation, compilation procedures and precs-
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 ihe United
States.
