S arES SO JULY 1984
U.S. Department of Commer M3-1 (84)-7
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS For Wire Transmission 10:00 A.M. E.D.T. Thursday, August 30, 1984

(All figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in July
increased $1.8 billion or 1.0 percent to $192.5
billion. Since reaching the recession low in November
1982 of $153.1 billion, new orders increased through
March of this year to $196.5 billion, but have since
fluctuated, averaging $191.6 billion.

Shipments of manufactured goods showed a slight
decline in July, down $0.7 billion or 0.4 percent from
June to $189.7 billion. A decline of 1.3 percent in
the durable goods sector was partially offset by a 0.6
percent increase in the nondurable sector.

Manufacturers' unfilled orders continued to
increase, although at a slower pace, as new orders
again exceeded shipments. Unfilled orders for July
were up $2.7 billion or 0.8 percent from June to $358.4
billion.

Manufacturers' inventories showed additional
expansion in July increasing $2.5 billion or 0.9
percent to $280.0 billion, moving the inventory to
shipments ratio up to 1.48 from 1.46 in June.

NEW ORDERS. New orders for durable goods in July
increased $1.3 billion or 1.3 percent to $100.5
billion. This revised downward the earlier reported
2.2 percent increase. Transportation equipment was up
$1.2 billion or 4.9 percent to $25.2 billion, the
strongest showing since the 6.5 percent gain in March.
The July increase was caused mostly by the motor
vehicle and defense aircraft and parts industries.

Primary metals were up $0.8 billion or 7.7 percent
to $10.9 billion, following large declines in June of
4.7 percent and May of 10.3 percent. Since peaking
last November at $12.1 billion, both the steel and the
nonferrous'components have been fluctuating.


The largest decline in new
nonelectrical machinery down $1.0
percent to $17.6 billion. This is the
the last four months.


orders was in
billion or 5.2
third decline in


New orders for nondurable goods increased in July
$0.5 billion or 0.6 percent to $92.0 billion.

SHIPMENTS. The decline in July shipments of durable
goods was due mostly to a drop in machinery;
nonelectrical was down $0.7 billion or 3.8 percent to
$17.1 billion and electrical $0.3 billion or 2.1


percent to $15.1 billion. Transportation equipment was
flat at $23.6 billion, as an increase in motor vehicles
and parts was offset by a decline in aircraft and
parts.
The increase in nondurable goods shipments was
widespread. The largest gains were in food and kindred
products, up $0.5 billion or 1.9 percent to $24.9
billion, and chemicals, up $0.3 billion or 1.6 percent
to $18.2 billion. The largest declines were in
tobacco, down $0.3 billion or 17.3 percent to $1.3
billion, and petroleum products, down $0.3 billion or
1.6 percent to $16.3 billion.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Between the recession low in November
1982 of $293.1 billion and March 1984 of $348.7
billion, unfilled orders increased at a rate of 1.2
percent per month, but have since slowed to 0.7
percent. This month's increase was concentrated in the
transportation equipment and machinery industries.
Transportation equipment was up $1.7 billion or 1.1
percent to $147.2 billion; machinery was up $1.5
billion or 1.0 percent to $142.8 billion. Primary
metals declined $0.4 billion or 1.9 percent to $20.5
billion. This is the third consecutive decline in the
metals order backlog, dropping the level $2.4 billion
below the April high of $22.9 billion.

INVENTORIES. Inventories, valued at $280.0 billion at
the end of July, have been growing briskly since
January when they were valued at $260.9 billion, a rate
of 1.2 percent per month. These increases are mostly
in work in process and finished goods.

The increase in July inventories was mostly in the
durable goods industries. Transportation equipment
climbed $0.9 billion or 2.0 percent to $45.1 billion,
electrical machinery was up $0.6 billion or 2.1 percent
to $30.8 billion and nonelectrical machinery up $0.5
billion or 1.4 percent to $39.0 billion. The other
durable goods industries showed much smaller increases.

Most of the nondurable goods industries showed
small inventory increases with the largest dollar gains
coming in paper, printing and publishing, and chem-
icals.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for August is scheduled for release on September
25, 1984 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on October 3,
1984 at 10:00 A.M.

1Shipments and new orders are the totals for the period and are adjusted for trading-day and calendar-month variations; unfilled orders and inventories
areas of the end of the period and are not adjusted for trading-day or calendar-month variations.
The supplementary series are regroupings of the separate industry categories: Household durable goods industries includes household furniture; kitchen
articles and pottery; cutlery, hand tools, and hardware; household appliances, radio and TV, ophthalmic goods, watches, and clocks; and miscellaneous per-
sonal goods.
Nondefense capital goods include machinery, except electrical (excluding farm machinery and equipment and machine shops); electrical machinery (excluding
household appliances, radio and TV, and electronic components); railroad equipment; and the nondefense portions of ordnance; communication equipment; air-
craft and aircraft parts; and shipbuilding, converting and repairing.
Defense capital goods include ordnance, communication equipment, aircraft and aircraft parts, and shipbuilding converting and repairing. The defense
data are comparable to those published annually in the MA-175, Shipments to Federal Government Agencies.
