BY COMMOPt1L

From September, ac bber exports o( finished manufactures
rose from $936.73 t '/ 5.6 million. Ttchn was due
largely to higher Belqof exports of indilnl commodities
included in this e c clc s ws follows: Aitobile parts
for assembly and a t ent trICn $4 t i wi 8 million;
railway transport a equipment, from $12. %6,f20.8 million;
passenger cars, f $1. .i' to $18.6 million; r generating
machinery frmn $18. to .8 million; radio television
apparatus, from $28.9ib .0 million;- *d., tal manufactures,
froman $36.1 to $39.7 mi on. p s of tne materials
increased from $202.43 t 9. illi oAbe primarily to an
increase in exports of oilse 2a.5 to $52.1 million.
An increase In exports of wheat, front $81.93 to $122.7
million was the chief factor in the rise in exports of crude
foodstuffs from $145.93 million to $189.4 million. Exports of
manufactured foodstuffs increased front $79.43 to $119.6 million
as increases were reported in exports of manufactured foodstuffs
exported for relief or charity, from $9.73 to $18.8 million;
dried and evaporated fruits fran $2.5 to $9.1 million; refined
vegetable oils, fats and waxes, from $4.5 to $10.8 million;

fruits, from $7.3 to $11.3 million. Exports of semimanufaetures
climbed from $250.2'to $272.7 million reflecting small increases
in exports of most of the individual items included in this
economic class.

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


GOVW GB: export statistics include government as well as
zm-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tistie, therefore, include Iatual Security Program military
ait, Mitual Security Program ecoanioc aid and Department of the
MiLOr Civilian Supply shipmepte. Separate figures for Mutual
Security Program military aid are shown in the footnotes of this
report. Shipments to United States armed forces and diplomatic
miiseta abroad for their own use are excluded from export sta-
ttieste, United States trade with Puerto Rico and United States
po, esfIions is not included in this report, but the export trade
,;li: ;'f6i rto Rico with foreign countries is included as a part of
"Ai"tIe bhited States export trade. Merchandise shipped in transit
through the United States between foreign countries is not in-
oluded in export statistics.
VATUWTI: The valuation definition used in the export
statistice is the value at the seaport, border point, or air-
part of exportatian. It is based on the selling price (or cost
if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other
charge to the port of exportation. Transportation and other
eoets beyond the United States port of exportation are excluded.
SBligur, in scme irntanees the valuation may not be reported in
m ordaince with thim definition, particularly where the export
V3ihe ls difficult to determine or must be estimated. None of
0t i.1iw es have been adjusted for changes in price level.


EFFECT OF SAMPLING: The value of export shipments individ-
ua ly valued at $100-$499 (about five percent of total export
VP ue) 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
Can,.da 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.
