SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


APRIL 1961


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $1,903.7 million in March to $1,687.5 million
in April, a drop of about 11 percent, reflected decreases in
exports of all the economic classes of commodities. The April
1961 domestic merchandise export total was about six percent
lower than the April 1960 total of $1,800.8 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 $1,629.0 million in April1,
about 12 percent below the March total of $1,858.6 million and
about three percent lower than the April 1960 total of $1,686.1
million.

Exports of finished manufactures fell from $1,096.3
million in March tc u.4 r i n r. April reflecting
decreases in exports of individual commodities included in
this economic class as follows: aircraft, parts and acces-
sories, from $113.6 to $98.5 million; passenger cars, from
$. ...0 to $17.6 million; office, accounting, and computing
machines and parts, from $32.1 to $26.1 million; automobile
parts for assembly and replacement, from $53.2 to $47.2


iSee the April 1961 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for the seasonally-
adjusted figures on total exports, excluding M.S.P. (military) shipmates.
Seasoeally-adjusted data are not available on a ccsmnodity basis.


million; construction, excavating mining, oil field, and
related machinery, from $70.8 to $65.3 million; and railway
transportation equipment, from $20.3 to $14.9 million. The
drop in exports of crude materials from $224.8 to $187.4
million was mainly the result of a noticeable decrease in
exports of unmanufactured cotton from $113.6 to $79.8
million.

During the period, exports of semimanufacttures fell from
$299.9 to $266.2 million owing r.- :",. iwer levels of
exports of individual commodities included in this economic
class as follows: copper semimanufactures, from $38.1 to
$22.9 million; plastics and resin materials, from $26.0 to
S20.7 million; iron and steel plates, sheets and strips, from
15.4 to $11.4 million; industrial chemicals, from $26.4 to
$22.6 million; and synthetic rubber, from $16.6 to $13.3
million. However, exports of crude vegetable oils and fats,
also included in this economic class, rose from $3.4 to $11.3
million. Decreases in exports of wheat from $106.1 to $84.7
million, and corn from $37.9 to $31.4 million were the chief
factors in the drop in exports of crude foodstuffs from
$177.2 to $153.9 million. Exports of manufactured foodstuffs
fell from $105.6 to $88.5 million largely due to decreases in
exports of wheat flour, from $14.8 to $9.5 million, and
manufactured foodstuffs for relief or charity, from $17.0 to
$13.0 million. These decreases were partly offset, however,
by an increase in exports of refined vegetable oils, fats
and waxes, from $3.1 to $8.7 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 so des inland freight, insurance, and other
charge ortation. Transportation and other
cot 0 n,. tes port of exportation are excluded.
fHu .Fsome ins e e valuation may not be reported in
a e with this de fC, particularly where the export
F difficult to de q or must be estimated. None of
1. le.: have been adj utS or 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 variaitility 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 Foreign
Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
