UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRA


MAY 1960




IMPORT TRADE BY COMM


The Bureau cf the Census De.partmenrt. of Commerce,
announced today that the slight increase in United
States imports for consumption from $1,246.3 million
in April to $1,253.1 million in May reflected gains
in imports of crude foodstuffs, manufactured food-
stuffs, and crude materials, which were largely off-
set by declines in imports of semimanufactures and
finished manufactures. The May 1960 imports for
consumption total was slightly higher than the May
1959 total of $1,247.2 million.

The Bureau stated that the imports for consump-
tion total for the first five months (January-May)
of 1960, valued at $6,316.6 million, was at a level
about six percent higher than the $5,971.7 million
reported for the first five months of 1959.

Imports of crude foodstuffs rose from $140.0
million in April to $155.6 million in May as in-
creases occurred in imports of coffee, from $74.7 to
$82.3 million; fish and shellfish, from $12.1 to
$16.4 million; and cocoa beans, from $13.5 to $16.7
million. An increase in imports of sugar, from
$48.3 to $58.3 million, was the prime factor in the
rise in imports of manufactured foodstuffs from
$138.9 to $144.9 million. However, imports of meat
products, also included in this economic class, fell
from $30.1 to 24.3 million.


/ .
'I


Although imports of crude materials increased
only e. i1htly from $:''..l million in April to $256.3
million in May, sizable counterbalancing changes
were reported in imp.,rl:: of some of the individual
items included in this economic class. The more
noticeable of these were: iron ore and concentrates,
from $21.5 to $34.7 million; copper, from $6.0 to
$10.1 million; uncut diamonds, from $6.8 to $9.7
million; crude petroleum, from $76.8 to $69.5 mil-
lion; zinc, from $7.0 to $3.0 million; and crude
rubber, from $30.5 to $27.1 million.

During the period, imports of semimanufactures
fell from $254.8 to $243.3 million. Reflected in
this change were decreases in imports of gas and
fuel oil, from $43.6 to $33.7 million; and iron and
steel semimanufactures, from $23.1 to $15.4 million,
which were partly offset by an increase in imports
of sawed lumber, from $24.6 to $29.9 million. The
small decline in imports of finished manufactures
from $457.5 to $453.0 million was due primarily to
declines in imports of automobiles and parts, from
$71.9 to $62.7 million and agricultural machinery
and implements from $16.4 to $13.3 million being
partly offset by increases in imports of newsprint,
from $54.6 to $61.0 million and burlap, from $6.5 to
$9.0 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 and United
States possessions is not included in this report,
but the import trade of Puerto Rico with foreign
countries is included as a part of the United States
import trade. Merchandise shipped intransit through
the United States between foreign countries is not
included in import statistics.
VAIATION: Import values are, in general, based
on market price or selling price, end are, in gener-
al, f.o.b, the exporting country. Import values also
exclude United States import duties. None of the
values have been adjusted for changes in price level.


EFFECT OF SAMPLING: Formal entry shipments
valued less than $100 and informal entry shipments
valued $250 or less (less than one percent of total
import value) are estimated by sampling. These es-
timated values are shown in the tables of this re-
port as "Estimated value $1-$99 formal and $1-$250
informal entry shipments" and are arbitrarily in-
cluded in the total for "Finished manufactures."
The largest variation from rounding of figures is
$50,000.

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