'ORT TRADE BY COMMODITY

March domestic merc hand se export t tl was about tn percent
higher than the March 1960 total of $.l,730.b mii 'on. These
figures include data on M.S.P. (military) fh`pments.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports of
domstic merchandise were walued at .6 million in March1,

The bulk of the over-all increase in exports of domestic
merchandise from r. n r to March was accounted for by a notice-
able increase in exports of finished manufactures from $921. to
$1,096.3 million. Increases were reported in most of the Indi -
vidual commodities included in this economic class. The more

in the rise in exports of crude fCoodstuffs from $.1.7' to
$177.2 million. The increased in exports of manuf ctured
foodstuffs from $A4;.3 to $105.r million reflected higher levels
of exports of manufactured foodstuffCs exported for relief charity, from $12.3 to $17.0 million; milled rice, from $9.1
to $12.5 million; and wheat flour, from $1." to $14.8 million.
During the period, exports of crude materials advanced from
$21.8 to $224.8 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 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 $50,0IX 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 *. i' .
Trade Statistics Notes.
