Jew orders of $48.5 billion in April showed a
slight decline from March orders of $49.2billion,
i fter seasonal adjustment, the Bureau t the
Census, U.S. Department ofCommerce,announced
today. However, orders, exclusive of the trans-
portation industries, increased marginally to
$41.4 billion from their March level of $41.1
billion.

for aircraft in April continued above the
of prior months even after the decline in
Orders for the machinery and equipment


industries increased for the second consecutive
month from $4.6 billion in March to $4.7 billion
in April.

Manufacturers' shipments in April decreased
o $47.9 billion compared to $48.2 billion in
March. Total inventories held by manufacturers
increased to $84.0 billion from $83.2 billion in
March. With shipments decreasing and inven-
tories increasing, the inventories-shipments ratio
rose from 1.73 to 1.75 in contrast to the decline
in the ratio for March.
Unfilled orders at a record high of $84.1 billion
as of the end of April increased nearly $600
million. However, exclusive of transportation
equipment, unfilled orders declined nearly $300
million.


The decrease in shipments of bds to
$24.7 billion from the March level of$25.3billion
was attributable to moderate decreases in most
major industry groups. The notable exceptions
were increased shipments of the steel, copper,
and glass industries. Nondurable goods producers
reported an increase in shipments for April at
$23.2 billion compared with $22.9 billion in
March. Tobacco and petroleum declined slightly
as other nondurable manufacturers reported
minor icreases in their level of shipments for
April.


Unfilled orders of $80.9 billion held by durable
goods manufacturers at the end of April showed
a $600 million increase from the end of March
total. Over the past two months, large increases
in backlog reflect the sizeable new orders for
commercial aircraft. A small decline in ship-
ments coupled with the increase in backlog
resulted in an increase of the unfilled orders-
shipments ratio for durable goods manufacturers
from 3.54 in March to 3.65 in April.


Inventories of durable goods increased from
$54.3 billion at the end of March to $54.7 billion
at the end of April. Most durable industry groups
reported slight increases in their inventory totals.
Increases in durable stocks occurred for all
stages of fabrication with work-in-process
showing the largest increase. Total inventories
of nondurable manufacturers also increased to
$29.2 billion from the March total of$28.9billion.


Inquiries concerning these figures should be addressed to
the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census,
Industry Division, Washingon, D.C. 20233.
