JULY 1961


FOR RELEASE
September 7, 1961


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


hle Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
aesmnehase from $1,677.9 million in June to $1,617.3 million
in JuUlW, a drop of about four percent, reflected lower levels of
experts of all of the economic classes of commodities. The July
dolmetic merchandise export total was also about four percent
1elow the $1,682.0 million reported for July 1960. These totals
include data on M.S.P. (military) exports.

Wlth M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports of do-
mestie merchandise during July amounted to $1,538.7 million, about
five percent below both the June total of $1,622.8 million and
the July 1960 total of $1,611.8 million.

Exports of finished manufactures fell from $982.0 million in
June to $940.9 million in July. This change reflected a sub-
stantial drop in exports of aircraft, parts and accessories,
from 132.8 to $89.9 million and less noticeable decreases in
exports of automobile parts for assembly and replacement, from
$41.5 to.$36.7 million; tractors, from $18.3 to $14.2 million;
prer generating machinery, from $21.1 to $17.2 million; and
agricultural machines, implements and parts, front $14.3 to
$10,6 million. These decreases were partly offset, however, by
increases in exports of commercial motor trucks and busses, from

$23.8 to $33.9 million; office, accounting, and computing ma-
chines and parts, from $23.5 to $30.6 million; and construc-
tlon, excavating, mining, oilfield, and related machinery from
$63.1 to $68.4 million. The drop in exports of semimanu-
factures from $290.4 to $279.6 million was largely due to
a decrease in exports of "other iron and steel semimanufactures"
(principally steel scrap), from $56.2 to $38.7 million, which-
was partly offset by a rise in exports of coal-tar and other
cyclic chemical products, from $13.3 to $18.4 million.


From June to July, exports of crude foodstuffs declined
from $144.5 to $139.6 million owing chiefly to decreases in
exports fo corn, from $26.1 to $21.1 million; fresh or frozen
fruits, from $14.5 to $11.7 million; and another grains" (except
wheat), from $13.1 to $8.0 million. Exports of wheat, also
included in this economic class, rose from $78.9 to $87.5 mil-
lion. Exports of manufactured foodstuffs decreased slightly
from $94.7 to $91.0 million as a drop in exports of refined
vegetable oils, fats and waxes, from $12.3 to $5.8 million
was offset in part by an increase in exports of wheat flour,
from $6.2 to $10.5 million. Although the level of exports of
crude materials remained about the same. $166.2 million in
July as compared to $166.3 million in June, noticeable counter-
balancing changes occurred in exports of some of the individ-
ual items included in this economic class. Decreases in
exports of coal, from $33.1 to $26.3 million, and oilseeds, from
$26.2 to $23.1 million were largely offset by an increase in
exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $36.7 to $45.4 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVfuRA: Expartbtatistias include government as well as
na-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistics, therefore, include Mutual Security Program military
aid, UMtual Security Program economic aid and Department of the
Aaq Civilian Supply shipments. Separate figures for Mutual
Security Program military aid are shown in the footnotes of this
report. Shipents to United States armed forces and diplomatic
missions abroad for their own use are excluded from export sta-
tiatioe. 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 IUited States export trade, Merchandise shipped in transit
through the United States between foreign countries is not in-
eluded 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
alirges to the port of exportation. Transportation and other
esats beyond the United States port of exportation are excluded.
* fever, in ame instances the valuation may not be reported in
aSeordance with this definition, particularly where the export
v iae is difficult to determine or must be estimated. None of
the values have been adjusted for changes in price level.


EFFECT OF SMPLING: 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.


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.
