OCTOBER


1963


?Anufacturers' shipments and new orders increased somewhat from September to October. With the new
orders booked during October slightly higher than shipments, the backlog of unfilled orders rose to a
level of $50.1 billion. Inventories, seasonally adjusted, increased about 1 percent in October, with
much of the rise occurring in the nondurable goods industries.
Shipments by durable goods manufacturers increased about 3 percent in October from September, after
seasonal adjustment, to a level of $18.5 billion. The October rise was mainly attributable to increases
in the primary metals and motor vehicles and parts industries, although almost all major durable goods
inAustries showed some increases.
Seasonally adjusted shipments by the nondurable goods industries remained virtually the same in
October as in September at $16.7 billion, although shipments of chemicals were higher.
In terms of market categories, automotive equipment and construction materials, supplies, and in-
termediate products showed substantial increases of about 6 percent and 5 percent, respectively, from
the September to October levels, after seasonal adjustment. Consumer staples was the only market group
that declined.
New orders booked by the durable goods manufacturers increased to $18.6 billion in October, season-
ally adjusted, up 2 percent from September. A major portion of this increase was accounted for by the
steel mills. The only major durable industry group to show decline was the aircraft and parts industry,
where there was a substantial decrease from the higher September figure.
Unfilled orders held by durable goods manufacturers amounted to $47.2 billion at the end of October,
seasonally adjusted, up slightly from the September level.
bManufacturers' inventory book values at the end of October amounted to $59.4 billion, after seasonal
adjustment, up almost $400 million from September. Manufacturers of nondurable goods increased their
stDocks by about $200 million.

Effective with this report, the Bureau of the Census will issue the monthly report on Manufac-
turers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders which was previously published by the Office of
Business Economics under the title "Industry Survey." The data in this new series are based
on an extensive modification of the monthly Industry Survey program. A detailed explanation
of the major changes made in the survey, as well as revised data for prior periods, are pre-
sented in a comprehensive report, "Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders: 1947-
1963 Revised." This comprehensive report may be purchased for $1.00 per copy from the Super-
intendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.
