EXPORT TRADE B

The Bureau of the Cencus, L'ep aritmint of C'mmerce, announc' I
today that thte increase in United tatu exports of dome: tic
merchandise from 1,.729.4 million in ctobe-r to $1,782. mil-
lion in November, a vain of about t.ree perc nt, reflect d
increases in export of all of the economic classes of com-
modities except manufactured food tufs:. The November dones.tic
merchandise export total i about 22 percent higher than the
November 1959 total of $1,462.4 million. The;e fi,'ures include
data on M.S.P. (military) shipment..

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports of do-
mestic merchandise were valued at $1,7,09.7 million in November,
a level about two percent higher than the October total of
$1,675.5 million and about 26 percent hither than the November
1959 total of $1,360.2 million.

Exports of crude materials rose from $239.3 million in
October to $283.2 million in November principally because of
increases in exports of manufactured cotton, from $59.4 to
$98.4 million and oilseeds, from $37.8 to $55.0 million. How-
ever, exports of coal, also included in this economic class,
fell from $35.7 to $28.7 million. The increase in exports of
finished manufactures from $958.9 million in October to $966.9
million in November was due ':h -fly to higher levels of export.


1Revised from the figure of $1,782.1 million reported in the Nlovember
1960 issue of Report No. FT 900-E.
2See the November 1960 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-ad-
justed figures on total exports, excluding M.S.P. (military) shipments.

passenger cars, fram $26.5 to $32.7 million; military auto-
mobiles, trucks and busses, from $4.4 to t-'.7 million; and
automobile parts for assembly and replacement from $45.5 to
$48.5 million. Decreases were reported, however, in exports
of merchant ships, from $13.7 to $0.1 million; ammunition,
component. and parts, from $16.8 to $12.1 million; and tractor
parts and accessories, from $14.0 to $10.8 million.

From October to November, exports of crude foodstuffs
climbed from $143.8 to $146.9 million owing chiefly to an in-
crease in exports of corn, from $20.6 to $33.5 million which
was partly offset by a decrease in exports of wheat, from
$77.2 to $71.3 million. November exports of semimanufactures,
valued at $286.0 million, were at approximately the same level
as the October total of $285.2 million. However, sizable
counterbalancing changes were reported in exports of some of
the individual commodities included in this economic class
as follows: crude vegetable oils and fats, from 4.0 to $11.7
million; aluminum semimanufactures, from $8.9 to $14.3 mil-
lion; copper semimanufactures, from $24.5 to $21.1 million; and
tin mill products, from $10.2 to $6.9 million.

L'u:irr the period, exports of iarnuCacturei fooi. t.uffC,
declined from $102.3 to $99.9 million as decreases in exports
of dried and evaporated fruits, from $8.7 to $V4.0 million and
canned fruits, from $6.5 to $3.3 million, were partly offset
by an increase in exports of wheat flour, from $8.9 to $12.3
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 among the individual com-
modity totals. For the 1960 export figures in this report, the
probable variability due to sampling is less than $45fn ,') 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, i0) or less than two percent of the individual
totals shown. The largest variation from rcunding of figures
is $50,000. For further information regarding sampling pro-
cedures, see the .eptember 1953, February 1954, January and
June 1956, and the October-December 1959 issues of Foreign
Trade Statistics Notes.
