FOR ~d~I.FA.i~


MAY 1961


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the slight increase in United States exports of domes-
tic merchandise from $1,687.5 million in April to 41,725.4 mil-
lion in May, an increase of about two percent, reflected increases
in exports of three of the five economic classes of commodities;
semimanufactures, crude foodstuffs, and manufactured foodstuffs.
The May domestic merchandise export total was about three percent
lower than the May 1960 total of $1,787.9 million. These figures
include data on M.S.P. (military) shipments.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports of domes-
tic merchandise totaled $1,652.9 million in May1, a level slight-
ly higher (about one percent) than the April total of $1,629.0
million, but about two percent below the May 1960 total of
$1,693.9 million. Exports of semimanufactures rose from $266.2
million in April to $287.5 million in May largely as a result of
increases in exports of most of the individual items included in
this economic class. The more noticeable of these increases were
as follows: Industrial chemicals, exclusive of Special Category
Type 1, from $22.6 to $28.4 million; plastics and resin materials,
from $20.7 to $23.5 million; and copper semimanufactures, from




ee the May 1961 issue of Report No. FT 900-E for seasonally-adjusted
figures on total exports, excluding M.S.P. (military) shipments. Seasonally-
ad~usted data are not available on a cmnnodity basis.


$22.9 to $25.1 million. However, exports of crude vegetable
oils and fats, also included in this economic class, fell from
$11.3 to $2.1 million. An increase in exports of wheat, from
$84.7 to $90.8 million was the main factor in the rise in ex-
ports of crude foodstuffs from $153.9 to $163.8 million.
Exports of manufactured foodstuffs rose from $88.5 to $98.4
million as small increases were reported in exports of many
of the individual commodities included in this economic class.

Although exports of finilshej manufactures decreased slight-
ly from $991.4 million in Airll .o I S'.3 Tmillion in May, siz-
able counterbalancing changes were reported in exports of some
of the individual commodities included in this economic class.
The more noticeable of these were railway transportation equip-
ment, from $14.9 to $8.1 million; military automobiles, trucks,
busses and commercial maintenance and repair trucks, from $9.3
to $3.1 million; machine tools and parts, from $26.9 to $23.3
million; motor fuel and gasoline, including jet fuels, from
$6.1 to $2.7 million; aircraft, parts and accessories, from
$98.5 to $108.5 million and steel mill manufactures, from $9.4
to $13.5 million. Exports of crude material@ remained at about
the same level in May as in April, $186.5 million and $187.4
million respectively. However, noticeable changes occurred in
exports of some of the individual commodities included in this
economic class. A drop in exports of unmanufactured cotton
from $79.8 to $53.0 million was largely offset by increases in
exports of oilseeds, from $21.1 to $39.8 million and coal from
$24.0 to $32.3 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE: Export statistics include government as well as
non-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistios, 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 : ',,''W) 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 Foreigni
Trade Statistics Notes.


Further information regarding coverage, valuation, etc.,
is contained in the "General Expani..tlon" in foreword of Report
No. FT 410. For complete statement, see foreword in Foreign
Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
