“Jobs supported by exports were a projected 10.7 million in 2016, a decrease of approximately 160,000 from 2015’s total of almost 10.9 million jobs. The decline in the number of jobs supported was the result of declines in the value of exports of both goods and services. Overall, the value of goods and services exports declined 2.5 percent in 2016. A decline in the overall level of U.S. export prices combined with almost flat U.S. labor productivity resulted in an increase of 54 jobs supported by a billion dollars of exports in 2016, from 5,690 to 5,744.”
