' Shipments,

and Orders /


April 1969


FOR RELEASE:


June 3, 1969


NEW ORDERS

New orders for manufactured products in April
increased $1.2 billion to $54.5 billion from $53.3
billion in March, after seasonal adjustment, the
Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Com-
merce, announced today. All of the increase
was in the durable goods sector which rose to a
total of $31.0 billion as nondurable orders were
relatively unchanged from the March total of $23.6
billion. Gains occurred in virtuallyall major durable
industry groups with railroad equipment, iron and
steel, and machinery recording significant increases.

New orders in April for the supplementary series
on machinery and equipment reached $7.1 billion
compared with a March total of $6.4 billion re-
flecting primarily the unusually large increase in
orders for railroad equipment. Orders for defense
products at $2.1 billion were $100 million below
their March total of $2.2 billion while orders for
consumer durables also remained stationary at
$2.2 billion for the third consecutive month. (SEE
CHART 1)





SHIPMENTS

Manufacturers' shipments in April increased to
$53.3 billion compared with $53.1 billion in March.
This relatively slight increase was accounted for
by the durable goods industries with transportation
equipment and fabricated metals reporting the larger
gains. April shipments of nondurable goods were
$23.5 billion virtually unchanged from March. (SEE

this report supersede those issued earlier in the
advance report on durable goods. The advance report
is based on a tabulation of early reports and is
limited to statistics on shipments, new orders, and
