UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRADE


JUNE 1959


IMPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Com-
merce, announced today that the increase in United
States imports for consumption from $1,247.3 million
in May to the record total of $1,335.5 million in
June, a gain of about seven percent, resulted from
noticeable increases in imports of all of the eco-
nomic classes of commodities except crude foodstuffs.
June imports for consumption were about 32 percent
higher than the June 1958 imports for consumption
total of $1,013.6 million.

For the first six months of 1959, imports for
consumption amounted to $7,313.6 million, a level
about 17 percent higher than the $6,237.5 million
reported for the corresponding period of 1958. The
Bureau also pointed out that for fiscal 1959 (July
1958 through June 1959), imports for consumption
totaled $13,857.8 million and represented an
increase of about eight percent over the fiscal 1958
(July 1957 through June 1958) total of $12,788.0
million. Fiscal 1959 "duty-free" imports were
valued at $5,497.6 million or about 40 percent of
the total. For fiscal 1958, "duty-free" imports
amounted to $5,718.9 million or about 45 percent of
the total.


From May to June, imports of semimanufactures
rose from $261.5 to $306.1 million largely as a re-
sult of increases in imports of sawed boards, planks,
and deals, from $29.4 to $40.5 million; copper, from
$13.3 to $21.1 million; aluminum, from $13.3 to
$18.2 million; and gas and fuel oil, from $30.4 to
$34.2 million. Imports of crude materials rose from
$246.0 to $287.9 million as noticeable increases
were registered in imports of crude petroleum, from
$64.5 to $94.6 million; tin, from $0.1 to $8.6
million; and iron ore and concentrates, from $30.0
to $35.9 million. Small increases in imports of
most of the individual items included in finished
manufactures accounted for the over-all rise in
imports of this economic class of commodities from
$436.6 to $457.2 million. Owing chiefly to an in-
crease in imports of meat products, from $32.8 to
$38.5 million, imports of manufactured foodstuffs
climbed from $142.1 to $147.7 million.


During the period,imports of crude foodstuffs,
reflecting in part a sizable drop in imports of
coffee, from $91.1 to $73.2 million, fell from
$161.0 to $136.6 million


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Import statistics include merchandise
imported by government agencies as well as by pri-
vate importers, but exclude American goods returned
by the United States armed forces for their own use.
United States trade with Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and
United States possessions is not included in this re-
port, but the import trade of Puerto Rico and Hawaii
with foreign countries is included as a part of the
United States import trade. Merchandise shipped in-
transit through the United States between foreign
countries is not included in import statistics.
VALUATION: Import values are, in general, based
on market price or selling price,and are,in general,
f.o.b. the exporting country. Import values also ex-
clude United States import duties. None of the values
have been adjusted for changes in price level.
EFFECT OF SAMPLING: Effective January 1958 for-
mal entry shipments valued less than $100 and infor-
mal entry shipments valued $250 or less (less than
one percent of total import value) are estimated by


sampling. These estimated values are shown in this
table as "Estimated value $1-$99 formal and $1-$250
informal entry shipments" and are arbitrarily in-
cluded in the total for "Finished manufactures".
Prior to 1958 all imports valued $250 or less whether
reported on formal or informal entries were esti-
mated by sampling and were shown separately by eco-
nomic class. For convenience these estimates for
1957 are now included in the "All other" category
for each economic class. For an indication of the
effect the change in coverage and the change in
presentation of sampled transactions have on the
economic classes and commodity totals shown in this
report effective with data for 1958, see the January
1958 issue of FT 930-1.

Further information regarding coverage, valua-
tion, etc., is contained in the "General Explanation"
in foreword of Report No. FT 110. For complete
statement, see the foreword in Foreign Commerce and
Navigation of the United States.
