UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRADE

SUARY REPORT ARY 1960 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E FEBRUARY 1960 April 15, 1960


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, an-
nounced today that the slight increase in United States ex-
ports of domestic merchandise from $1,543.7 million in January
to $1,599.2 million in February reflected increases in exports
of finished manufactures, semimanufactures, manufactured food-
stuffe, and crude foodstuffs which were partly offset by a de-
aline in exports of crude materials. February domestic
chandise exports were about 23 percent higher than the uV
ally lor February 1959 total of $1,265.9 million. Th-
ures include data an M.S.P. (military) exports.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, a ex-
ports during February were valued at $1,480.3 a level
slightly higher than the January total of $1,466. ion and
about 27 percent higher than the February 19 of;
$1,169.2 million. .

Exports of finished manufactures rose from $855..-.aB
in January to $875.9 million in February owing chi
gains in exports of motor trucks and busses, from $244..



EXPLANATION

COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well
as nmn-government shipments to foreign countries. The export
statistics, therefore, include Mutual Security Program mili-
tary 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 foot-
notes of this report,. Shipments to United States armed forces
and diplomatic missions abroad for their own use are excluded
from export 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 in-
cluded as a part of the United States export trade. Merchan-
dise shipped in transit through the United States between for-
eign commtries is not included in export statistics.

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 ex-
cluded. 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


IC


$33.7 million; ammunition, components and parts, from $12.3 to
$20.4 million; and textile, sewing, and shoe machinery, from
$10.3 to 313.7 million. The rise in exports of semimanufactures
from $239.8 to $251.1 million was due largely to increases in
exports of aluminum semimanufactures, from $13.7 to $22.2 mil-
lion and copper semimanufactures, from $8.8 to $14.2 million.
of manufactured foodstuffs climbed from $82.9 to $93.3
as gains were reported in exports of manufactured food-
r relief or charity, from $4.4 to $11.5 million;
ref ed table o4s, fats and waxes, from $4.3 to $7.1 mil-
lion; nd lled rice, from $10.2 to $12.6 million. Increases
exp wheat, from 257.0 to $66.8 million and corn, from
7 .8 .6 million were the primary factors in the rise in



the period, exports of crude materials fell from
2.7 $208.2 million as noticeable decreases were reported
U e is of unmanufactured cotton, from $137.5 to $106.6 mil-
pd oilseeds, from $24.0 to $19.4 million.



)F STATISTICS

estimated. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in
price level.

EFFECT OF SAMPLING: The value of export shipments individ-
ually valued at $100-$499 (about five percent of total export
value) is estimated by sampling. Effective with the statistics
for January 1960, the previous sample ratio of 10 percent has
been increased to a 50 percent sample for countries other than
Canada with the 10 percent sample being retained for Canada. The
estimated values are distributed among the individual commodity
totals. For the 1960 export figures in this report, the probable
variability due to sampling is less than 50,000 or less than a
trivial percentage which can be ignored. For periods prior to
1960', the probable variability due to sampling is less than
$50,000 or less than two percent of the individual totals shown.
The largest variation from rounding of figures is $50,000. For
further information regarding sampling procedures, see the
September 1953, February 1954, January and 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.
