UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRADE


SUMMARY REPORT
FT 930-E


MAY 1960


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMON


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decline in United States exports of domestic mer-
chandise from $1,805.9 million in April to $1,775.6 million in
May, a decrease of about two percent, was due mainly to declines
in exports of finished manufactures, manufactured foodstuffs, and
crude foodstuffs. Exports of semimanufactures and crude mate-
rials rose slightly during the period. May exports of domestic
merchandise were about 16 percent higher than the May 1959 total
of $1,533.9 million. M.S.P. (military) shipments are included in
these totals.

Excluding M.S.P. (military) shipments, exports of domestic
merchandise during May amounted to $1,681.6 million, a level
slightly below the $1,691.2 million reported in April, but about
20 percent above the May 1959 total of $1,402.5 million.


Exports of finished manufactures declined from $1,066.6
million in April to $1,051.9 million in May due mainly to a drop
in exports of ammunition, components and parts, from $36.0 to
$10.1 million and to smaller decreases in exports of passenger
cars, from $21.5 to $17.3 million and construction, excavating,
mining, and related machinery, from $68.8 to $65.4 million. Ex-
ports of manufactured foodstuffs dropped from $93.0 to $81.0


million as small, scattered a *rd in experts
of most of the individual i a economic cla:.
The more noticeable of these wer. .t,-ai. i 1. ur, irom $11.7 to
$8.0 million; meat and meat products, from $10.9 to $9.2 million;
and milled rice, from $12.2 to $10.7 million. Lower levels of
exports of wheat, from $91.1 to $81.6 million and corn, from
$23.2 to $20.3 million accounted for most of the decline in ex-
ports of crude foodstuffs from $152.0 to $141.4 million.

EDrirg the period, exports of c:mimanufactures advanced
from $304.4 to $310.0 million owing chiefly to increases in ex-
ports of copper semimanufactures, from $23.6 to $36.7 million
and iron and steel plates, sheets, and strips, from $21.8 to
$32.9 million. These increases were partly offset, however, by
decreases in exports of coal-tar and other cyclic chemical pro-
ducts, from $17.5 to $11.9 million; aluminum semimanufactures,
from $15.9 to $10.8 million, and synthetic rubber, from $21.8
to .f1'.1 million. Exports of crude materials advanced slightly
from $189.9 to $191.3 million as increases in exports of oil-
seeds, from $19.4 to $33.2 million and unmanufactured tobacco,
from $9.5 to $17.7 million were offset by a noticeable decrease
in exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $87.3 to $69.6
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 $50,000 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 rcunding 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.
