801MAR REPORT OCTOBER 1959 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E December 2, 1959


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the slight decline in United States exports of do-
aestio merchandise from $1,464.2 million' in September to
$1,4(0.5 million1 in October reflected decreases in exports of
meamasmufactures, crude foodstuffs, and crude materials which
were largely offset by increases in exports of finished manufac-
tirea and manufactured foodstuffs. The October domestic mer-
ehandise export total was about eight percent less than the
catober 1958 total of 61,584.1 million. M.S.P. (military) ship-
ate axe included in these totals.

Excluding U.S.P. (military) shipments, the October domes-
tic merchandise export total was $1,376.8 million, a level
slightly less than the September total of $1,384.5 million, and
about two percent below the October 1958 total of $1,402.8
t-llon.

Exports of semimanufactures dropped noticeably from $226.7
CIflian in September to $183.5 million in October. Many of the
A.Eividual items included in this economic class registered
small decreases during the period. The more noticeable of
teose were vegetable oils and fats, from $11.8 to $4.3 million;

lMailable records indicate that there as an increase in September in
h mamer of vessels loaded during tbat month but not departing until the
aht aot the following onh or later. This indicates that accelerated
:emeal loading book place at the end of September in anticipation of
b e la iprmh n'a strike. Sacm of this accelerated loading probably
In Meftleooed in the Septmaber totals, butb ercandise loaded in September
oa vnmsels departing October first a later are included in the October
totals in accordance with regular compiling procedures.


synthetic rubber, from $17.6 to $10.7 million; industrial
chemicals, exclusive of Special Category type 1, from $26.2
to $20.9 million; and wood pulp, from $11.4 to 66.4 million.
Decreases in exports of wheat, from $47.9 to $42.5 million end
corn, from $20.7 to $16.0 million were the chief reasons for
the decline in exports of crude foodstuffs from $114.4 to $107.2
million. Although the dollar value of exports of crude materials
changed only slightly from September to October, $186.2 to
$184.7 million, sizable counterbalancing changes were reported
in exports of some of the individual commodities included in
this economic class. Decreases were reported in exports of un-
manufactured tobacco, from $70.3 to $39.2 million; and coal,
from $35.9 to $31.5 million, while increases were reported in
exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $26.1 to $46.2 million
and oil seeds, from $21.0 to $32.6 million.

The increase in exports of finished manufactures from
$834.5 to $876.5 million was due primarily to increases in ex-
ports of individual items included in this economic class as
follows: passenger cars, from $12.1 to $22.3 million; amiu-
nition, components and parts from $10.8 to $20.9 million;
merchant ships, from $0.6 to $7.6 million; and railway
transportation equipment, from $5.7 to $11.9 million.
However, appreciable decreases were reported in exports of two
items included in this economic class. They were cigarettes,
from $9.7 to $4.5 million and paper and manufactures, from
$23.5 to $19.9 million. Exports of manufactured foodstuffs
rose from $102.4 to $108.7 million as increases in exports of
dried and evaporated fruits, from $2.1 to $9.1 million, and
milled rice, from $6.5 to $13.2 million, were partly offset by
a drop in exports of manufactured foodstuffs for relief or
charity, from $10.8 to $5.3 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVUAGE: 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
ArW Civilian Supply shipments. Separate figures for Mutual
Security Program military aid are shown in the footnotes of
this report. Shipments to United Stateesarmed forces and dip-
maltic missions abroad for their own use are excluded from ex-
fert 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-
poart 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
Comerce and Navigation of the United States.
