d shipments by the

to $19.4 billion,
new high for this


1964


series in


recent years.


This rise was


strongly


influenced by the increased activity in the trans-
portation industry which accounted for about two-
thirds of the gain. Primary metals and electrical
machinery orders also contributed to the December-
January rise in durable new orders with the steel
mills and communication equipment industries re-
porting substantial seasonally adjusted increases.


The January backlog of


unfilled


orders


for the durable goods industries, increased to
$46.9 billion, after seasonal adjustment, up about
$200 million from the December level. This backlog
level was 4 percent higher than a year ago. The
increases in the transportation and primary metals
groups for January were offset by declines in all
other major industry groups.


Inventories of


durable


goods


manu~fac -


turers declined about $150 millionto $55.9 billion
at the end of January, after seasonal adjustment.
The January change in durable goods inventories was
concentrated in the transportation industry.

Nondurable goods producers decreased
their stocks by about $100 million during January
to $24.0 billion. Much of the decline occurred in
the apparel and rubber and plastics products n.e.c.


of market groupings, all cate-
sed shipments during January.
