SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


JUNE 1959


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Comerce, an-
moueed today that the decrease in United States exports of do-
aestic merchandise from $1,535.3 million in Pay to $1,409.5
million in June, a drop of about eight percent, resulted from
declines in exports of all of the economic classes of comrd-
ities, except manufactured foodstuffs. Domestic merchandise
exports during June were, however, slightly higher than the
June 1958 total of $1,394.3 million. Data on exports of U.S.P.
(military) shipments are included in these totals.

June exports of domestic merchandise, excluding iM.S.P.)
tlltary shipments, were valued at $1,331.4 million, a level
about five percent less than the May total of $1,394.4 million,
but about three percent more than the June 1958 total of
$1,295.6 million.


The bulk of the over-all decline in exports of domestic
merchandise between May and June was due to a drop in exports
of finished manufactures fram $957.5 to $858.4 million. Sizable
decreases were noted in exports of individual items included in
this economic class as follows: ammunition, components and
parts, from $42.8 to $11.8 million; Type 1 Special Category
eaidities, from $39.0 to $21.8 million; aircraft, parts and
accessories, from $73.4 to $57.4 million; military automobiles,
trucks and busses, from $10.9 to $3.9 million; and machine
tools and parts. exclusive of Special Category Type 1, from


$18.7 to $12.4 million. However, exports of nonmilitary mer-
chant ships rose from $1.3 to $17.7 million. Exports of semi-
manufactures fell from $214.9 to $203.3 million largely as a re-
sult of a drop in exports of vegetable oils and rats, from
$11." to $2.2 million. Other less noticeable changes in the
dollar value of exports of individual items included in this
economic class were as follows: industrial chemicals, exclu-
sive of Special Category Type 1, from $23.6 to $20.6 million;
rayon, nylon, and other man-made textile semimanufactures, from
$8.8 to $6.6 million; copper semimanufactures, from $9.9 to
$7.8 million; aluminum semimanufactures, from $4.3 to $6.7 mil-
lion; and wood pulp, from $5.7 to $8.0 million. Exports of
crude foodstuffs fell from $131.2 to $122.1 million as a de-
crease in exports of wheat, from $63.7 to $45.6 million was
partly offset by gains in exports of "other grains", from $14.8
to $23.3 million, and fresh or frozen fruits, from $9.3 to $12.7
million. The decline in exports of crude materials, from
$141.1 to $133.6 million, was due primarily to a drop in exports
of coal, from $33.2 to $28.6 million.

During the period, exports of manufactured foodstuffs
advanced slightly from $90.6 to $92.1 million as small counter-
balancing changes were noted In exports of most of the individual
items included in this economic class. The more noticeable of
these were milled rice, from $8.5 to $11.7 million; dairy
products, from $8.5 to $6.2 million; and manufactured food-
stuffs exported for relief or charity, from $10.5 to $8.5
million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVRiGE: Export statistics include government as well as
non-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistics, therefore, include Hitual Security Program military
aid, Ihtual Security Program economic aid and Department of the
Army Civilian Supply shipments. Separate figures for Ittual
Security Program military aid are shown in the footnotes of
this report. Shipments to United States armed forces and dip-
lomatic missions broad for their own use are excluded from ex-
port statistics. United States trade with Puerto Rico, Hawaii,
and United States possessions is not included in this report,
buthe expert the export trade of Puerto Rico and Hawaii with foreign
countries is included as a part of the United States export
trade. Merchandise shipped in transit through the United
States between foreign countries is not included in exports.

VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the export
statistics is the value at the seaport, border point, or air-
port of exportation. It is based on the selling price (or cost
if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and
other charges to the port of exportation. Transportation and
other costs beyond the United States port of exportation are


excluded. However, in some instances the valuation may not be
reported in accordance with this definition, particularly where
the export value is difficult to determine or must be estimat-
ed. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in price
level.
EFFECT OF SAMPLING: The value of export shipments indi-
vidually valued at $100 to $499 (about five percent of total
export value) is estimated by sampling. The estimated values
are distributed among the individual commodity totals shown in
the table. The probable variability in the export figures due
to sampling is less than two percent of the individual totals
shown, or less than $50,000. The largest variation from round-
ing of figures is $50,000. For further information regarding
the sampling procedures, see the September 1953, February 1954,
and the January and June 1956 issues of Foreign Trade Statis-
tics Notes.
Further information regarding coverage, valuation, etc.., is
contained in the "General Explanation" in foreword of Report
No. FT 410. For complete statement, see foreword in Foreign
Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
