New orders for manufactured products at $53.6
billion in June decreased $500 million after seasonal
adjustment, the Bureau of the Census, U.S. Depart-
ment of Commerce, announced today.

Orders in the durable goods sector declined
approximately $1 billion to a total of $28.9 billion
following a significant decline in May. However,
the decline in durable goods was partially offset
by an increase of $500 million in new orders for
nondurable goods which increased to $24.7 billion.
For most nondurable industry groups, new orders
are equal to shipments. The drop in durable goods
new orders was largely attributable to the sizeable
decrease in orders in the aerospace industries,
although smaller declines occurred in the automotive,
electrical machinery, and fabricated metal indus-
tries. In the nondurable sector, orders increases
were widespread with the food industry registering
the largest monthly increase. Among the supple-
mental series, orders for defense products declined
$500 million reflecting the decreases in the aero-
space industry. Orders for consumer durables in-
creased $200 million to $2.2 billion for June and
orders for machinery and equipment increased $100
million to a June total of $6.5 billion. (SEE CHART 1)

SHIPMENTS

Manufacturers' shipments in June of $54.7 billion
were $900 million higher than the May total. The
overall increase in shipments was about equally
divided between durable goods which rose to $30.0
billion and nondurables which rose to $24.7 billion
In June. Nearly all durable industry groups recorded
moderate increases with a $200 million decline in
shipments of aerospace products, as the notable
exception. In the nondurable goods sector, the food
industries registered the most significant increases.

UNFILLED ORDERS

Unfilled orders held by durable goods manufac-
turers at the end of June decreased $1.1 billion to
$85.8 billion as shipments exceeded new orders for
the first time in eleven months. The pattern of
change in unfilled orders by industry was mixed
with significant decreases in the transportation and
electrical machinery backlogs. The increase in
shipments of durable goods combined with the
decrease in backlog resulted in a decrease of the
unfilled orders-shipments ratio for durable goods
to 3.18 in June from 3.26 in May. (SEE CHART 3)
