BUREAU OF THE CENSUS


JULY 1959


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the Increase In United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $1,409.5 million in June to $1,454.0 million
in July,1 a gain of about three percent, reflected higher levels
of exports of all or the economic classes of commodities. July
'exports of domestic merchandise were about four percent higher
than the July 1958 total of $1,401.9 million. Data on exports
of M.S.P. (military) shipments are included in these totals.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, July exports of
domestic merchandise were valued at $1,339.4 million, a level
approximately the same as the June total of $1,331.4 million,
but about five percent higher than the July 1958 total of
$1,272.9 million.

1A. a result of increase shipmate at Great lakes ports with the
aening of the Saint laurence Semay, same abnoaml delays have developed
In Ut trammittal of Shipper's port Deolarations tram which the ex-
art statistics are compiled. An attempt to oerame this delay -e
*tarted in July. As a result the July export figures include about $15.0
million whioh would nrnailly have been in earlier months (1hy or June).
tin $15.0 million is ooncentrated largely In exports of oil seeds, corn,
amd "other gaim.. Ib Is expected that this delay in bansmittal of
declaratioa will be remedied by the time the August statistics are -
piled -ad the users of the statistics will be provided with whatever in-
famation beams available an the extent to which t he Agust statis-
blam innlude a& me than noam emmat of arry-over of shipment from
prior months.


Exports of crude foodstuffs advanced from $122.1 million in
June to $137.9 million in July partly as a result of a rise in
exports of wheat, from $.,.6 to $57.2 million. An appreciable
gain in exports of vegetable oils and fats from $2.2 to $13.4
million largely accounted for the rise in exports of semimanu-
factures from $203.3 to $213.5 million. Exports of finished
maiufactures rose from $859.4 to $867.8 million. The principal
factors in this increase were gains in exports of Special Cate-
gory type 1 commodities, from $21.8 to $54.1 million; aircraft,
parts and accessories, from $57.4 to $71.1 million; and military
automobiles, trucks, and busses, from $3.9 to $12.0 million
which were partly offset by declines in exports of merchant
ships, from $17.7 to $1.8 million; automobile parts for assem-
bly and replacement, from $46.9 to $39.1 million; and construc-
tion, excavating, mining and related machinery, from $64.4 to
$59.0 million. Exports of crude materials advanced from $1_33.6
to $138.o million as increases were registered in exports of
most of the individual items included in this economic class.
The more noticeable of these were coal, from $28.6 to $36.1
million and oil seeds, from $23.7 to $30.6 million. However,
exports of unmanufactured cotton, also Included in this economic
class, dropped noticeably from $29.7 to $15.9 million.


Exports of manufactured foodstuffs rose from $92.1 to $96.1
million as increases in exports of refined vegetable oils, fats
and waxes, from $10.8 to $17.4 million, and dairy products, from
$6.2 to $11.. million, were partly offset by a drop in exports
of wheat flour from $12.5 to $5.1 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as
non-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistics, therefore, include mutual Security Program military
aid, mutual Security Program economic aid and Department of the
Army Civilian Supply shipments. Separate figures for Mutual
Security Program military aid are shown in the footnotes of
this report. Shipments to United States armed forces and dip-
lomatic missions abroad 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,
but 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.
KFFECT 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., la
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.
