EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced today
that the increase in United States exports of domestic merchandise,
frm $1,617.3 million in July to $1,633.3 million in August1 was
primarily due to a substantial increase in exports of crude
materials which was largely offset by decreases in exports of
sematalm facturee, finished manufactures, and crude foodstuffs.
The August 1961 domestic merchandise export total was about three
percent higher than the August 1960 total of $1,591.4 million.
These totals include data on exports of M.S.P. (military)
ahitients.

With M.S.P. (military) shipments excluded exports of domestic
merchandise totaled $1,561.8 million in August, a level about two
percent above both the July total of $1,538.7 million and the
August 1960 total of $1,528.8 million.

Exports of crude materials rose from $166.2 million in July to
$218.8 million in August owing chiefly to a sizable increase in
exports of manufactured cotton, from $45.4 to $89.4 million,
and leader increases in exports of unmanufactured tobacco, from

$21.8 to $27.7 million and coal from $26.3 to $30.2 million.
However, exports of inedible animal and fish oils and greases,
also included in this economic class, fell from $15.4 to $10.4
million.

During the period, exports of semimanufactures fell' from $279.6
to $266.3 million reflecting, in part, decreases in exports of.
copper semimanufactures, from $19.6 to $13.5 million and
aluminum semimanufactures, from $11.0 to $7.7 million. The
decline in exports of finished manufactures from $940.9 to
$927.8 million was due, in part, to decreases in exports of
individual commodities included in this economic class as
follows: office, accounting, and computing machines and parts,
from $30.6 to $20.3 million; motor trucks and busses from
$33.9 to $24.4 million; passenger cars from $13.4 to $6.3 million;
textile, sewing and shoe machinery from $16.7 to $12.2 million
and machine tools and parts, from $25.7 to $22.0 million. Lower
levels of exports of wheat, from $87.5 to $78.6 million and
fresh or dried vegetables, from $6.1 to $2.6 million accounted
for nmst of the decrease in exports of crude foodstuffs from
$139.6 to $129.6 million. However, exports of corn, also
included in this economic class, increased from $21.1 to $26.0
million
August exports of manufactured foodstuffs, valued at $90.7 mil-
lion, were at approximately the same level as the July total
of $91.0 million.


EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


OERZAGE: Export statistics include government as well as
nm-government shipments to foreign countries. The export sta-
tiDstic, therefore, include Mutual Security Program military
aid, Uatual Security Program ecounaic aid and Department of the
Jmet'Qiviianm Supply shipments. Separate figures for Mutual
Seerity Proram 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-
tistics. 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 United 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
charges to the port of exportation. Transportation and other
costs beyond the United States port of exportation are excluded.
However, in scme instances the valuation may not be reported in
accordance with this definition, particularly where the export
value is difficult to determine or must be estimated. None of
the values 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.

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
Cacmerce and Navigation of the United States.
