EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of( Comairce, ro.ou.
today that the decrease in United statess exports o doesti
merchandise from :, ". 5 million in July to $1A,'9.7 sllf:'
in August, a decline of about five percent, resulted :i'. creases in exports of finished manufacture-, crude material ,
and crude foodstuffs, which were portly ffsCet by ncrea.e. 'I
exports of senimnufactures and manufactured f August total, however was about 1* percent hlgh1': than the
August 1959 total of $1,383.9 million.

With M.S.P. (military) shipents excx ded, exports o-
mestic merchandise were valued at $ ,532.! million n n uust,
a level about five percent' lower than th i Juy total of $1 3
million, but about 19 percent higher than the Aug-st 1959 total
of l ,.?26.8 million.

Exports o __i '___ ..'o .. fell from ('.( million
in July to $875." -l.lh.'. **p-.: -hifly as rsult of de-
creases in exports of the individual commodities of this
economic class .s follows: aircraft parti id accessories,
from $135.4 to $*'.3 million, power gieerati g machinery,

il feld, n:d related machinery from $65.5 to $'9.4 .mllon;
n.d cttn cloth, fro 11.8 to $6.8 million. The drop n -
ports of crude mnalerlal from $196. to0 $13.7 million was
Irg ly du to a subst ntial decree .e in exports of urnnu--
tr. c ton, fran t8. to $1$. million while wa p r7l
offset by Inc: rease n eiports of unmanufactured tobacco fro
$14.7 to $29 6 miliCon: and oilseeds, from $23.6 to $34..
mdllio A decruea:a I exports of wheat from $63.9 to $8.
million-largely offs tt by an increase in exports of corn
from $20.5 to $25.9 clhiton-vns mainly responsible for the
slight decrease in expos of crude foodstuffs from $126.6
.0to $123.7 million.



During the period exports of semisanufactures rose from
$313.5' to $337.0 million, largely ats a result of higher levels
of exports of copper iemiimanufacture', from $32.6 to $40.8
million; aluminum semimanufactures, from $11.7 to $18.4 million;
and crude vegetable oitos and fats, from $6.6 to $12.9 million.
The increase in exports of manufactured foodstuffs from $d3.3
to $94.5 million was due, in part, to a rise in exports of re-
fined vegetable oils, fats and waxes from $7.1 to $14.8 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as
non-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistics, therefore, include Mutual Security Pr,,'ram military
aid, Mutual Security Pr'-.gram economic aid and Department of the
Army Civilian Supply shipments. Separate figures for Mutual
Security Proiramn 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-
cluded 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
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 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.


Further information r,- .r~rii coverage, valuation, etc.,
is contained in the "General Explanation" in foreword of Report
No. FT 410. For complete statement, see foreword in or-t'in
