EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the increase in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $1,618.7 million in January to $1,659.0 million
in February, a rise of about three percent, reflected increases
in exports of crude foodstuffs, finished manufactures and semi-
manufactures. The February 1961 danestic merchandise export
total was about six percent higher than the February 1960 total
of $1,558.4 million. These figures include data on M.S.P.
(military) shipments.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports of
domestic merchandise were valued at $1,593.6 million in
February, a level about six percent higher than the January
total of $1,510.8 million and about eight percent higher than
the February 1960 total of $1,479.5 million.

Exports of crude foodstuffs advanced fran $132.6 million
in January to $156.7 million in February primarily due to an
increase in exports of wheat, fran $78.5 to $99.8 million. The
rise in exports of finished manufactures from *902.6 to $921.6
million reflected, in part, increases in exports of individual

adjusted figures on total exports, excluding .IS.P. (military) shipments.

$258.2 to $273.7 million was lar;ily the result of higher
levels of exports of industrial chemicals from $19.0 to $28.7
million, and coal-tar and other :yclic chemical produAta from
$11.5 to $16.9 million.

Fran January to February, exports of crude materials '4.l
from $236.3 to $213.8 million mainly due to a drop in exports
of unmanufactured cotton, from $130.4 to $112.1 million wh4.ln
was partly offset by a rise in exports of oilseeds from $21.6
to $27.2 million. Zqport of manufactured foodstuffs declined
slightly froman $89.0 to $88.3 million reflecting counter-
balancing changes in exports of milled rice, from $13.0 to
$9.1 million and wheat flour, from $7.9 to $11.7 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAG: Export statistics include government as well as
non-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistics, therefore, include Mutual Security Program military
aid, M tual Security Program economic aid and Department of the
Army Civilian Supply shipments. Separate figures for Mutual
Security Program military aid are shabn 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.
VAIUATION: The valuation definition used in the -xport
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 sam 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 hanm $50,00C 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 19%, 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 Repurt
No. FT 410. For complete statement, see foreword In Foreign
Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
