SUMtARY REPORT
FT 930-E


FOR RELEASE
May 10, 1960


EXPORT TRADE BY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, an-
wsmet today that the increase in United States exports of
domestic merchandise from $1,559.2 million in February to
$1 733.1 million in March, a gain of about 11 percent, was
primarily the result of noticeable increases in exports of two
of the five economic classes of commodities, finished manu-
factures and semimanufactures. March exports of domestic mer-
ehandise were about 20 percent higher than the March 1959
total of $1,440.8 million. Included in these figures are data
oan M.S.P. (military)exports.

Excluding M.S.P. (military) shipments, the March export
total amounted to $1,615.9 million, an increase of about nine
percent over the February total of $1,480.3 million and about
19 percent over the March 1959 total of $1,359.6 million.

A substantial part of the over-all increase in total ex-
ports of domestic merchandise from February to March was in
exports of finished manufactures which rose sharply from
$875.9 to $1,026.9 million. The bulk of this increase was
accounted for by gains in exports of individual items included
in this seonomic class as follows: aircraft, parts and acces-
sories, from $65.5 to $133.5 million; construction,excavating,
miring and related machinery, from $56.6 to $69.4 million;
radio and television apparatus, from $19.3 to $25.2 million;
emmznition, components and parts, from $20.4 to $25.0 million;
commercial motor trucks and busses, from $33.7 to $38.0

million; steel mill manufactures, from $11.4 to $15.1 million;
paper, and manufactures, from $18.3 to $21.0 million; and
lubricating oil, from $14.7 to $17.1 million. Exports of
semimanufactures rose from $251.1 to $283.2 million owing
chiefly to increases in exports of wood pulp, from $9.3 to
15.1 million; plastics and resin materials, from $19.9 to
24.8 million; iron and steel plates, sheets, and strips, from
13.6 to $18.3 million; coaltar and other cyclic chemical pro-
ducts, from $11.3 to $15.1 million; industrial chemicals, from
$24.1 to $27.4 million; and synthetic rubber, from $17.5 to
$20.0 million.

During the period, small decreases were reported In exports
of two of the three remaining economic classes of commodities,
crude materials and crude foodstuffs. The decrease in exports
of crude materials, from $206.2 to $201.2 million was due
largely to a decline in exports of manufactured cotton, from
$106.6 to $100.3 million. Exports of crude foodstuffs fell
from $130.7 to $128.6 million as a decrease in exports of corn,
from $22.6 to $19.6 million and lesser decreases in exports of
most of the other individual items included in this economic
class were partly offset by a rise in exports of wheat, from
$66.8 to $72.4 million.

March exports of manufactured foodstuffs, valued at $93.2
million were at approximately the same level as the February
total of $93.3 million.


EXPLANATION OQF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well
as nan-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 countries is not included in export 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 $100-4499 (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


VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the export The largest variation from rounding of figures is $50,000. For
statistics is the value at the seaport, border point, or air- further information regarding sampling procedures, see the
port of exportation. It is based on the selling price (or cost September 1953, February 1954, January and June 1956, and the
