TRADE


FOR RELEASE


IMPORT T


Ibe Bureau of the Census, Department of
aeree, announced today that the increase in United
S'States imports for cannumption from $1,288.6 million
in Febuary to $L,366.1 million in March, an in-
crease of about six percent, reflected increases in
imports of all of the five economic classes of com-
modities. The March 1960 total, the Bureau stated,
was about eight percent higher than the March 1959
total of $1,268.0 million.

The Bureau also pointed out that imports for
consumption during the first quarter of 1960 were
valued at $3,817.2 million and were at a level about
nine percent higher than the $3,515.5 million re-
ported for the corresponding period of 1959.

Imports of finished manufacturers rose from
$465.1 million in February to $498.5 million in
March as small increases were reported in imports of
may of the individual items included in this eoon-
oaio class. The more noticeable of these were news-
print, frou $53.6 to $58.1 million; iron and steel
advanced manufactures, from $9.2 to $12.1 million;
and automobiles and parts, from $80.6 to $83.5 mil-
lion. The rise in imports of sedmImnuractures from
$293.5 to $308.3 million was also largely the result


OMMODITY


If small increases in imports of most of the indiv-
idual items included in the economic class. In-
creases in imports of aluminum, from $8.0 to $11.2
million; sawed boards, planks and deals, from $24.9
to $26.9 million; and industrial chemicals, from
$7.7 to $9.7 million, were the more noticeable in-
creases reported in individual items included in
this class during the period. However, imports of
copper, also included in this economic class, fell
from $31.2 to $23.9 million.

Largely as a result of increases in imports of
sugar, from $42.4 to $50.2 million, and whisky, from
$11.4 to $14.2 million, imports of manufactured
foods ffs rose from $117.3 to $131.8 million. The
increase in imports of crude materials, from $246.8
to $261.3 million resulted from higher levels of im-
ports of ferroalloying ores, from $9.5 to $16.8 mil-
lion; hides and skins, from $4.7 to $.9 million;
and unmanufactured wool, from $9.3 to $3.5 million.

Imports of crude foodstuffs rose slightly from
$165.9 to $166.2 million as small increases in im-
ports of most of the individual items included in
this economic class were largely offset by a decline
in imports of coffee, from $101.7 to $95.1 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Import statistics include merchandise
imported by government agencies as well as by pri-
Vte iiiporters, butexclude 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 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: 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
estimated values are shown in the tables of this
report as "Estimated value $1-$99 formal and $1-$250
informal entry shipments" and are arbitrarily included
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
statement, see the foreword in Foreign Commerce and
Navigation of the United States.
