EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Buzar of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
tday that the slight increase in United States annual exports
af aoetioe merchandise, from $20,349 million in 1960 to $20,629
A dBan in 1961 (a gain of about one and one-half percent)
resulted from increases in exports of finished manufactures,
eorde foodstuffs, and manufactured foodstuffs which were partly
offset ty decreases in exports of semimanufactures and crude
baerials. Changes in the over-all dollar values of these
eanemoe classes of commodities from 1960 to 1961 are as fol-
lacen Finished manufactures, from $11,473 to $11,741 million;
etd. foodstuffs, from $1,645 to $1,897 million; manufactured
foodstuffe, from $1,117 to $1,157 million; semimanufactures,
frFl $3,526 to $3,287 million; and crude materials, from
$2,588 to $2,546 million. These totals include data on M.S.P.
(sWlitary) shipments, which were valued at $949 million in 1960
~. ec pared to $810 million in 1961.

Excluding M.S.P. (military) shipments, the domestic merchandise
export total during calendar year 1961 amounted to $19,819
dmillon, a level about two percent higher than the calendar
year 1960 total of $19,401 million,

.he December 1961 domestic merchandise export total, including
M.A.P. (military) shipments, valued at $1,806.9 million1, was
slightly higher than both the November total of $1,797.9 mil-
lien and the December 1960 total of $1,786.7 million. With

ldpmIeat to United States armed forces and diplomatic missions
ab nrod far their ou use are excluded frcqpxport statistics.
United States trade with Puerto Rico and United States posses-
sions is not included in this report, but the export trade of
Puerto MRio 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, not entered
as iparts, is not included in export statistics.
VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the export statis-
tics is the value at the seaport, border point, or airport 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.
None of the values have been adjusted for changes in price level.
RELIfBILITY: The statistics presented in this repor-t are based
partly mn sample data and therefore are subject to sampling
variation that ny cause them to differ somewhat 'rom the re-
sults which Vould have been obtained Cram processing all export


merchandise total was $1,757.3 million an increase of about one
percent over the November total of $1,739.6 million.

The slight increase in exports of domestic merchandise, including
M.S.P. (military) shipments, from November to December, as
noted above, was primarily due to increases in exports of semi-
manufactures and finished manufactures being offset by decreases
in exports of crude materials, crude foodstuffs, and manufac-
tured foodstuffs.

An increase in exports of copper semimanufactures, from $16.1
to $27.1 million accounted for the bulk of the rise in exports
of semimanufactures from $262.5 to $280.9 million. Exports of
finished manufactures rose from $997.8 to $1,010.4 million due
in part to increases in exports of metalworking machines and
parts, from $13.4 to $21.4 million; aircraft, parts and acces-
sories, from $105.5 to $110.6 million; automobile parts for
assembly or replacement, from $50.1 to $55.2 million; and
merchant ships, from $0.6 to $5.0 million. However, decreases
were noted in exports of motor trucks and busses, from $23.0
to $18.4 million; motor fuel and gasoline, including jet
fuels, from $4.9 to $1.7 million; and lubricating oil, from
$19.3 to $16.1 million.

Meanwhile, exports of crude materials fell from $250.2 to $232.1
million as decreases in exports of unmanufactured tobacco, from
$54.8 to $34.8 million; oilseeds, from $59.8 to $41.1 million;
and coal, from $32.2 to $27.0 million were partly offset by an
increase in exports of unmanufactured cotton, from $58.8 to
$77.5 million. Exports of crude foodstuffs decreased slightly
from $180.9 to $178.8 million and manufactured foodstuffs, from
$106.6 to $104.7 million.


OF STATISTICS
documents. For the 1960 and 1961 figures, the sampling varia-
bility can be ignored since the probable variability due to
sampling is either less than $50,000 (the largest variation
from rounding of figures) or less than a trivial percentage of
the individual totals shown. For the 1959 figures, the prob-
able variability due to sampling is less than $50,000 or less
than 2 percent of the individual totals shown. In addition to
the effects of sampling variation, the data in this report are
subject to errors from such sources as the carry-over of data
from month to month, errors in reporting or processing, the
estimation of shipments valued under $100 (estimated data for
such shipments are included in the over-all export total and in
the totals for "Finished manufactures" and "All other finished
manufactures, exclusive of Special Category Type 1" but excluded
from other totals), and the amissian of parcel post shipments
valued under $50. Although the effect of such errors an the
rounded totals in this report is probably small, the possibil-
ity of inaccuracy should be taken into account, particularly in
using figures of relatively small magnitude.


Further information regarding coverage, valuation, compilation
procedures and precision of export data is contained in the
foreword of Report No. FT 410. For complete statement, see
foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United States.
