EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODI


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced today
that the decrease in United States exports of domestic merchandise
flCm $1,633.3 emllion in August to $1,599.6 million in September1,
a decline of about two percent, reflected decreases in exports of
three of the five economic classes of commodities, crude materials
eemannufaetures, and manufactured foodstuffs, which were partly
offset by increases in exports of the two remaining economic
classes, crude foodstuffs and finished manufactures. The Septem-
ber 1961 domestic merchandise export total was at approximately
the same level as the September 1960 total of $1,59 .6 million
.hese figures include data an M.S.P. (military) exports.

With I S.P. (military) shipments excluded, exports of domestic
aerchandiee totaled $1,525.1 million in September, a level about
two percent below the August total of $1,561.8 million and about
ne percent below the September 1960 total of $1,541.1 million.

Exports of crude materials dropped from $218.8 million in August
to $194.8 million in Sptember as decreases in exports of unmanu-
factured cotton, from $ 9.4 to $44.8 million and oilseeds, from
$20.4 to $11.5 million were partly offset by an increase in

During the period, exports of foodat from $129.6
to $141.6 million with most of t accounted for
by higher levels of exports of barley, gran sorghum, and oats,
which are included in this economic class under "other grains."

The alight increase in exports of finished manufactures from
$927.8 to $934.1 million reflected increases in exports of
some of the individual commodities included in this economic
class which were partly offset by decreases in others. The
more noticeable increases were in exports of aircraft, parts and
accessories, from $90.1 to $100.9 million; passenger cars, from
$6.3 to $11.0 million; merchant ships, from $0.4 to $3.8 million;
and office, accounting, and computing machines and parts, from
$20.3 to $23.4 million. The principal decreases were in exports
of metalworking machines and parts, except machine tools and
parts, from $18.5 to $13.4 million; lubricating oils, from
$21.2 to $16.2 million; and radio and television apparatus,
from $32.6 to $28.4 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


OOCTHRU Export statistics include govermnt as well as
N-govemnmb shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistics, therefore, include Mutual Security Program military
aid, Mbtual Security Program economic aid and Department of the
A gr Civilian a~pl3 shipments. Separate figures for Mutual
Security Prgrp military aid are shown in the footnotes of this
report. Shipments to United States armed forces and diplomatic
S s. ristaion abroad far their awn use are excluded fro export sta-
atitcs. t lted States trade with Puerto Rico and United States
possession s not included in this report, but the export trade
of Puerto Rico with foreigncountries 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-
eluded in export statistics.
VATJATMI: The valuation definition used in the export
statistiea is the value at the seaport, border point, or air-
art of exportatian. It is based on the selling price (or cost
If not sold) and Includee inland freight, insurance, and other
harguee to the port of exportation. Transportation and other
eoat beyond the lUited States port of exportation are excluded.
1BOMwVr, In ae instances the valuation may not be reported in
aesrdanee with this definition, particularly where the export
vame is difficult to determine or must be estimated. None of
the valnes 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 amang 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. Fr 410. For complete statement, see foreword in Foreign
Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
