EXPORT TRADE B'IGO pMODTY

The Bu3resaj of th'e C'ensis, Departmert %.f :"3mmercv, arno'urced and buse-, 'fr 'i 1 I r I m .nr, ma-r. 'n- t.: 1. ,u-1 part ,
today that the increase in United States exports of domestic from $13.4 to $18.8 million; power generating machinery, from
merchandise from $1,594.6 million in September to $1,729.4 mil- $14.6 to $19.2 million; office, accounting, and computing ma-
lion in October, a gain of about eight percent, reflected in- chines and parts, from $16.9 to $21.2 million; radio and televi-
creases in exports of finished manufactures, crude materials and sion apparatus, from $24.4 to $28.5 million; and railway trans-
manufactured foodstuffs. The domestic merchandise export total portation equipment, from $8.3 to $12.3 million. These in-
in October was about 18 percent higher than the October 1959 total creases were partly offset, however, by a drop in exports of air-
of $1,465.9 million. Data on M.S.P. (military) shipments are in- craft, parts, and accessories, from $116.0 to $86.7 million. The
eluded in these totals. rise in exports of crude materials from $188.3 to $239.3 million
was mainly the result of higher levels of exports of unmanufac-
With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports of domes- tured cotton, from $26.3 to $59.4 million; and oilseeds from
tic merchandise were valued at $1,675.5 million in October, a $20.7 to $37.8 million. An increase in exports of milled rice,
level about nine percent higher that the September total of from $4.2 to $11.7 million, accounted for most o0 the gain in
$1,541.0 million and about 21 percent higher than the October exports of manufactured foodstuffs from $96.8 to 4102.3 million.
1959 total of $1,382.2 million.
During the period, exports of semimanufactures fell from
$287.8 to $285.2 million owing chiefly to a drop in exports
Exports of finished manufactures rose from $876.0 million of copper semimanufactures, from $30.2 to $24.5 million. The
in September to $958.9 million in October largely as a result of slight decline in exports of crude foodstuffs from $145.7 to
increases in exports of individual commodities included in this $143.8 million was largely the result of a decrease in exports
economic class as follows: passenger cars, from $9.0 to $26.5 of wheat, from $84.0 to $77.2 million which was partly offset
million; merchant ships, from $0.6 to $13.7 million; motor trucks by an increase in exports of corn, from $17.4 to $20.6 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 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-
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 aming 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 regarding coverage, valuation, etc.,
is contained in the "General Explanation" in foreword of Report
No. FT 410. For complete statement, see foreword in icorei n
Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
