NEW ORDERS


New orders in July at $55.1 billi N11
factured products recorded an increase
from the June total of $53.9 billion, a
adjustment, the Bureau of the Census, U.S.
meant of Commerce, announced today.

Orders in the durable goods sector increased
$1.3 billion to $30.5 billion following declines
in June and May. Orders for nondurable goods
decreased $100 million in July to a total of $24.6
billion following four consecutive monthly increases.
The increase in new orders for durable goods was
attributable primarily to defense products which
increased $1.1 billion in July to $2.4 billion following
four consecutive monthly decreases. Orders in the
primary metal industries continued fairly strong with
a $300 million increase to $5.1 billion. Orders for
consumer durables increased $100 million to $2.3
billion in July and new orders for machinery and
equipment decreased $100 million to a July total
of $6.4 billion. (SEE CHART 1)

SHIPMENTS

Manufacturers' shipments in July of $54.8 billion
remained virtually unchanged from their June total.
Both durable goods shipments at $30.1 billion and
nondurable goods shipments at $24.7 billion remained
very close to their June totals. In both the durable
and nondurable goods sectors, the industry patterns
were mixed with the largest gains in the aerospace
industry. Exclusive of transportation equipment,
total manufacturing shipments declined $300 million
to $47.2 billion in July from $47.5 billion in June.

UNFILLED ORDERS


Unfilled orders


held by durable


goods manu-


facturers at the end of July increased $400 million
to $86.3 billion. The pattern of change by durable
industry groups was mixed with major increases in
metals and machinery more than offsetting a sizeable
decline in the transportation equipment backlog.
The increase in the backlog of durable goods with
no change in shipments resulted in a slight increase
of the unfilled orders-shipments ratio for durable
goods to 3.19 in July from 3.17 in Juve.
(SEE CHART 3)

All durable


stocks participated in this


increase with the transportation group registering
the most significant gain. Stocks of nondurable
goods were unchanged at $31.7 billion for July. At
the all manufacturing level, increases occurred in
inventories for all stages of fabrication with a
$550 million increase in work-in-process stocks of
durable goods as the most significant. (SEE CHART 4)





The figures on the durable goods industries in
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
unfilled orders for a few broad industry categories.
The present report is based on more complete
reporting, but the estimates are also considered


preliminary.

Machinery and equipment industries Machinery, except electrical (excluding farm machinery and equipment and machine shops),
electrical machinery (excluding household appliances, communication equipment and
electronic components), shipbuilding and repairing, and railroad and street car equipment.
Defense products industries (old series) Based on reports for companies classified in the communication equipment, complete aircraft,
aircraft parts, and ordnance industries. (Thus, this series includes significant amounts
of nondefense work in these industries and omits defense work performed in the shipbuilding
industry.)
Defense products (new series) Based on separate reports on defense work filed by large defense contractors in the following
industries: ordnance, communications, complete aircraft, aircraft parts, and shipbuilding. Thus, it
differs from the old series in that it includes defense activity in shipbuilding and excludes non-
defense work in ordnance, communications, complete aircraft, and aircraft parts. The data are
comparable to those published annually in the MA-175, Shipments of Defense-Oriented Industries, for
the specified industries.
