UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRADE

SMUARY REPORT APRIL 1960 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-9 June 14, 1960


EXPORT TRADE




.I The Bureau o ensuo, Department of Commerce,
"t announced th t Increase in United States exports of
domestic b nd i $1,733.1 million in March to $1,e05.9
mijIff in April, of about four percent, was the result
OiMireases in e o f finished manufactures, semimanufac-
tures, and crude fs, which were partly offset by a drop
1. in exports of c rials. Exports of manufactured food-
lfs remasne a ximately the same level in April a-.
d h. r exports of domestic merchandise were about
the April 1959 total of $1,463.0 million.
of M.S.P. (military) shipments are Included in
the above-mentioned totals.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, domestic mer-
chandise exports during April were valued at $1,691.2 million,
an increase of about five percent over the March total of
$1,615.9 million and about 27 percent over the April l'959 total
of $1,326.8 million.

Exports of finished manufactures rose from $1,0:6.9 million
in March to $1,066.6 million in April. Thi. increase waj largely
the result of small, scattered increases in e -port: of most of
the individual items included in thl-i economic class. Thece in-
eluded agricultural machines, implements and part:, from $15.0

Eq.pCrt. of semrimanufactureL climbed from $283.2 to $304.4

man-made tetile zLemimanufacture.., from $10.9 to $14.7 million;
and iron and steel plate-, sheet:, and strips, from $18.3 to

foodstuff f- r.-.m $128.6 to $152.0 million re-ulted from gains
in e.-port. ,of wheat, from $72.4. to $91.1 million and corn, from
$19.6 t... $.3.< million.

During the period, exportL, of crude materials fell from
$201.2 to $189.9 million a: decreases in exports of unmaufac-
tured cotton, from $100.3 to $87.3 million and unarniufactared
tobacco, from $20.3 to $9.5 million were partly offset by an
increase in e-pnort.. of coal, from $21.8 to $32.8 million.
April export: of iasriifactured foordtuff,. valued at $93.0 mil-
lion were at approximately the -ame level as tne $93.2 million
reported in March.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well a-
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 diplomatic
missions abroad for their own use are excluded from export sta-
tistics. United States trade with Puerto Rico and United States
possessions is not included in this report, but the 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 between foreign countries is not in-
eluded 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 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 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
'alue) 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 com-
modity 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 pe-
riods 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 pro-
cedures, see the September 1953, February 1954, January and
June 1956, and the October-December 1959 issues of Foreign
Trade Statistics Notes.
