SUMMARY

Inventories decreased $950 million or 0.6 percent to
$147,109 million after seasonal adjustment. This is the
fifth consecutive month that inventories declined and
this decline was slightly larger than the $892 million
decline in June. New orders increased $2,887 million
or 13.6 percent to $83,124 million and shipments in-
eased $1,894 million or 2.3 percent to $82,634 mil-
lian, Since new orders exceeded shipments the unfilled
~ers increased $492 million or 0.4 percent. The
m$reitoes to shipments ratio declined from 1.83 to
1.Si July.

The seasonally adjusted shipments and new orders
for June have been revised upward $377 million from
the figures appearing in the advance report issued
August 21. These revisions result from a calculation of
new seasonal factors for the automotive industry and
revised historical data are shown on pages 7 and 8 of
this report.


NEW ORDERS


New orders for durable goods increased $1,721 mil-


nondurable goods increased $1,190 million or 3.0 per-
cent to $41,472 million, led by increases in chemicals
($325 million), petroleum industry ($217 million), and
printing and publishing ($185 million).

UNFILLED ORDERS

Unfilled orders of durable goods increased $292 mil-
lion or 0.3 percent to $117,045 million at the end of


This represents


the first increase in


unfilled


orders after 9 consecutive months of declines. Indus-
tries recording increases in unfilled orders were the
primary metals industries ($251 million) and the aero-


partially offset by declines in fabricated metal products
($139 million) and electric $114 million).

the largest increases were


reported in the primary metals industries ($323 mil-

the nonelectrical machinery industries ($274 million).
Among the supplementary series household durables

The figures on the durable goods industries in this
report supersede those issued earlier in the advance
report on durable goods. The present report is based on

month.


The advance

and the full report is scheduled for release on October

Shipments of durable goods increased $704 million
or 1.7 percent to $41,162 million. This increase was
led by primary metals industries ($297 million), and

REVISED SEASONALLY ADJUSTED DATA, 1972-1975


The seasonally adjusted automotive data for both shipments and new orders are being revised for all months since
January 1972. The higher level totals (Transportation, Durable goods industries, and All manufacturing) are also
revised by the same amounts. These revisions resulted from an updating of the seasonal factors for the automotive
industry to reflect all currently available information. The revisions were made because the revised seasonal factors
are considerably different from those previously used.


An adjustment of the monthly survey to the benchmark levels of the 1973 Annual Survey of Manufactures and
1972 Census of Manufactures is now underway. When this review is completed later this year, revised seasonally
adjusted data will be issued for all industries including data for earlier years.
