SUIY REPORT

JULY 1960


September 16, 1960


IMPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce,
announced today that the decrease in United States
Imports for consumption from $1,295.6 million in June
to $1,144.8 million in July, a decrease of about 12
percent, reflected decreases in imports of all of the
economic classes of commodities. The July 1960
imports for consumption total was about seven per-
cent less than the July 1959 total of $1,235.9 mil-
lion.
The Bureau pointed out that for the first seven
months of 1960, total imports far consumption amounted
to $8,757.0 million, an increase of about three per-
cent over the total of $8,543.1 million reported for
the corresponding period of 1959.

Imports of crude materials dropped from $281.8
million in June to $236.5 million in July, owing
chiefly to a sizable decrease in imports of crude
petroleum from $87.0 to $63.5 million and to lesser
decreases in imports of copper, from $6.9 to $2.1
million, and iron ore and concentrates, from $40.0


to $35.8 million. The decrease in imports of
finished manufactures from $451.4 to $417.4 million
reflected decreases in imports of most of the indi-
vidual commodities included in this economic class.
The more noticeable of these were: newsprint, from
$60.5 to $52.9 million; steel mill products, from
$24.1 to $17.9 million; and automobiles and parts,
from $49.6 to $45.6 million. Imports of semimanufac-
tures fell from $269.2 to $228.3 million reflecting
in part declines in imports of gas and fuel oil, from
$37.4 to $30.8 million; tin, from $9.2 to $4.8 million;
wood pulp from $27.1 to $22.7 million; copper, from
$26.5 to $23.3 million; and zinc, from $3.8 to $0.8
million.
Lower levels of imports of cocoa, from $17.4 to
$10.7 million; coffee, from $84.3 to $77.9 million;
and bananas, from $8.9 to $5.9 million accounted for
the bulk cf the decrease in imports f crude foodstuffs
from $152.6 to $127.4 million. Imports cf manufactured
foodstuffs dropped slightly from $140.6 to $135.3
million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


OOVERAA: 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 tfide 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.
VAIUATION: Import values are, in general, based
on market price or selling price, and 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 Camnerce and Navi-
gation of the United States.
