EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


Tie Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
bHaey %that the drop in exports of domestic merchandise from
4,725.4 million in May to $1,677.9 million in June, a decrease
af about three percent reflected lover levels of exports of all
at the.economic classes of commodities except semimanufactures.
Ehe Jfls 1961 domestic merchandise export total was about three
percent lower than the June 1960 total of $1,721.0 million. Data
an exports of M.S.P. (military) shipments are included in these
figures.
With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded exports of domes-
tie merchandise were valued at $1,622.8 million in Junel a level
about two percent below the May total of $1,652.9 million, but
sbout the same as the June 1960 total of $1,621.0 million.
Exports of crude materials fell from $186.5 million in May
to 166.3 million in June reflecting decreases in exports of

adjnused data are not available an a cannodity basis.


unmanufactured cotton, from $53.0 to $ ml and eeds
from $39.8 to $26.2 million. The drop ini SqfLe food-
stuffs from $163.8 to $144.5 million was largely due to decreases
in exports of wbeat, from $90.8 to $78.9 million, and corn, from
$29.7 to $26.1 million.

During the period, exports of finished manufactures de-
creased from $989.3 to $982.0 million. This change resulted
from small, scattered decreases in exports of many of the
individual commodities included in this economic class being
largely offset by an increase in exports of aircraft, parts and
accessories, from $108.5 to $132.8 million. The decline in ex-
ports of manufactured foodstuffs from $98.4 to $94.7 million
reflected lower levels of exports of milled rice, from $11.4
to $4.0 million, and wheat flour, from $11.4 to $6.2 million
which were partly offset by an increase in exports of vegetable
oils, fats and waxes, from $8.3 to $12.3 million.

From May to June, exports of semimanufactures increased
slightly, from $287.5 to $290.4 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


OViERAG: Export statistics include government as well as
nat-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
t^4i~I,. therefore, include Mutual Security Program military
aid, Iftual 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-
tistie. United States trade with Puerto Rico and United States
poaessions 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.
SVALATION: The valuation definition used in the export
statisticss i the value at the seaport, border point, or air-
port of exportatian. It is based on the selling price (or cost
If not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other
sh ges to the port of exportation. Transportation and other
coats beyond the United States port of exportation are excluded.
Hgnier, in same instamies the valuation may not be reported in
ameod eane with this definition, .particularly where the export
va3 So difficult to determine or must be estimated. None of
f:e %lbese 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 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.
