[Unless otherwise indicated, all figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars I


New orders for durable goods rose 4.5 percent or
$2,175 million to $50,016 million, the Bureau of the
Census, Department of Commerce, reported today.
Over half of the durable goods increase was due to a
$1,325 million increase in new orders for blast furnace
and steel mill products, a rise of 36.5 percent to
$4,959 million. Seasonal adjustment, which is based on
the historical pattern of the industry, accounts for
about two-thirds of the overall change. Before seasonal
adjustment, the blast furnace and steel mill industry
increase in new orders is 11.1 percent or $446 million
to $4,452 million. New orders for aircraft and parts
rose by 26.4 percent or $467 million to $2,237
million, while orders for the electrical machinery in-
dustry rose 4.1 percent or $264 million to $6,660
million. Increases in radio and T.V. and communica-
tion equipment account for nearly all of the electrical
machinery change.
In the nondurable goods area where new orders
largely reflect shipments made during the month, new
orders declined from $46,300 million in April to
$46,032 million in May. This decline coupled with the
larger increase in the durable goods industries resulted
in an overall increase of $1,907 million or 2.0 percent
in new orders for all manufacturers.
Inventories held by all manufacturers rose $1,045
million or 0.7 percent to $149,166 million. Nondur-
able goods industries accounted for $600 million of the
change with a 1.2 percent rise to $52,588 million.
Nearly every nondurable industry recorded a rise with
somewhat larger rises in chemicals and petroleum.
Durable goods industries rose $445 million or 0.5 per-
cent to $96,578 million. Blast furnaces and steel mill
inventories rose $209 million or 2.6 percent to $8,188
million and motor vehicle and parts rose $141 million
or 2.3 percent to $6,389 million.
Unfilled orders for manufactured goods rose 1.3
percent or $1,539 million from $119,390 million to
$120,929 million. Before seasonal adjustment, unfilled
orders were virtually unchanged: $120,628 million in
April and $120,467 million in May. The overall effect

crease. The May incr e is due largely to the
percent increase in b lst furnace and ste
backlog which rose $1, 5ilion to $10,452 .
Shipments of all m tflc ers rose $ ion
or 0.7 percent in May. S iSods
manufacturers rose 1.7 perch .5 _nion to
$48,537 million as shipments of nondurable goods
manufacturers declined slightly from $46,107 million
in April to $45,974 million in May. Most of the dur-
able goods increase was in the primary metals indus-
tries, where blast furnaces and steel mills rose 6.9 per-
cent or $253 million to $3,925 million and non-ferrous


metals rose 11

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES
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
more complete reporting, but the estimates are also
considered preliminary. Final figures will appear as
historical data in the report to be published for next
month. The advance report durable goods for June is.
scheduled for release on July 21, 1976 and the full
report is scheduled for release on August 2, 1976.
This report contains data on an unadjusted and


seasonally adjusted basis. However, the data are not
