EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, an-
nounced today that the decrease in United States exports of
domestic merchandise from 21,658.8 million in December 1959
to $1,543.7 million in January 1960, a decline of about
13 percent, reflected decreases in exports of all of the
economic classes of commodities. The Bureau stated, how-
ever, that the January 1960 domestic merchandise export
total was about 12 percent more thar the January 1959 to-
tal of $1,384.5 million. These totals include data on ex-
ports of M.S.P. militaryl shipments.


With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, January
1960 exports of domestic merchandise were valued at
$1,466.0 million, a level about six percent less than the
December 1959 total of $1,553.6 million but about 15 per-
cent more than the January 1959 total of 81,270.0 million.


Exports of finished manufactures, which accounted for
the bulk of the drop in eyportl of domestic merchandise
from December 1959 to January 1960, fell from 1935.0 to
$855.8 million. This decrease was due chiefly to declines
in exports of individual commodities included in tnriz eco-
namic class as follows: aircraft, parts anri acce.sorieZ,
from $84.5 to $68.5 million; ammunition, components and
parts, from 828.2 to 112.3 million; textile, sewing and
shoe machinery, from 114.7 to 10.3 million; paper and
manufactures, from 824.0 to 319.9 million; radio and
television apparatus, from S21.9 to S17.9 million; and
motor fuel and gasoline, including jet fuels, from S8.3
to $4.7 million. However, increases rFre reported in


exports of passenger car:-, from S15.9 to 24.5 million and trac-
torns, from $14.4 to 521.2 million. Export- of semimanufacctares
fell from 260.0 to 9239.3 million as small decreases were re-
ported in exTports of many of tre individual items included in
this economic class. The more noticeable of these were rayon,
nylon and other man-made textile semimanuf-ctures, from 516.7 to
10.6 million, and pla-tics and rezin materials from $2o.3 to
823.0 million.


Exports of manufactured foodst u'fs 'roppei from 192.3 to
82.9 million owing chiefly to declines in exports of manufac-
tured foodstuffs exported for relief or charity, from 8.4 to
4.4 million, and wheat flour, from S13.2 to 9.9 million. How-
ever, exports of milled rice, also included in irtis economic
class, rose from 3.9 to S10.2 million. Ex-ports of crude food-
stuffs fell from 9126.2 to 122.4 million as a sizable drop in
exports of corn from 832.? to 317.8 million was largely offset by
an increase in exports of wheat, from $44.9 to 57.0 million.




Although the decline in exports of crude materials from
t245.3 million in December 1959 to 242.7 million in January
1960 was slight, noticeable counterbalancing changes were
reported in exports of trie leading commodities included in
this economic clasJ. Decreases were noted in export- of
unmanoufactured tobacco, from Se)3.0 to 516.9 million; oilseeds,
Crom i2., to 624.0 million; ard coal, from 29.1 to S21.1
million while exports of unmanufactured cotton increased
noticeably from 89.1 to S137.5 irdliion.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERACE: Export statistics include government as well as
non-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tiatica, 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
and United States possessions is not included in this report,
but export trade of Puerto Rico with foreign countries is-
included as a part of the United States export trade.
Merchandise shipped in transit through the United States be-
tween 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 bey.ond the United States port of exportation are
excluded. However, in some instances the valuation ma:, not ec
reported in accordance with this definition, particularly, here
the export value is difficult to determine or must be estimated.


None of tne values have been adjusted for changes: in price
level.
EFFECT OF SAMPLING: The %alue of export shipment: indi-
vriuallsy valued at i100- .49'-) (about five percent of total ex-
port value) is estimated t, sampling. Effective with the
statistics for Januar: 1960, the previous sample ratio of 10
percent has been increase to a 50 percent sample for countries
other than Canaa rith the 10 percent sample being retained
for Canada. The estimated values are distributed amo.ng tre.
individual commojit., totals. For the 1960 export figure: in
this report, the probable variaoilit*, due to sampling is lE.-
than .115,000 oDr less than a tririal percentage whicnr car, bte
ienorer-. For periods prior to 196:', the probable va-riaoilit.
due to sampling is less than ]50,000 or less than tne percent
of the indi-ri.oual totals shown. The largest variation from
rounding of figures i5. $50,0'00. For further information re-
garding sampling procedures, 3ee the September 1953, February
19'4, Januar, ana June 1956, and the October-December 1959
issues of Foreign Trade Statistics 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.
