SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in
September declined $3.6 billion or 1.8 percent from
August to $189.0 billion. New orders for durable goods
more than accounted for the decline, dropping $3.9
billion or 3.8 percent. Excluding a large decrease in
the defense capital goods sector and in the motor
vehicle industry which is usually volatile during the
third quarter, orders for durable goods were about the
same as August. The nondurable goods sector showed a
$0.3 billion or 0.4 percent increase.

Shipments of manufactured goods declined $2.4
billion or 1.2 percent to $189.6 billion. A decline in
the motor vehicle industry of $2.5 billion or 14.4
percent accounted for the drop. Without motor
vehicles, both the durable and nondurable sectors were
about unchanged from August.

-Unfilled orders for manufactured goods declined
$0.6 billion or 0.2 percent to $359.0 billion. This is
the first decline since the recession low in November
1982 of $293.1 billion, except for a 0.1 percent
decrease in February 1983. The rate of increase in
unfilled orders had been diminishing since June,
however.

The book value of. manufacturers' inventories
increased $1.7 billion or 0.6 percent from August to
$285.2 billion. This, is the smallest one month
percentage increase since manufacturers began
rebuilding their inventories in February. Following
the recession, the value of inventories declined to a
low of $257.7 billion in July 1983, then stayed at
about the $260 billion level through January 1984.

The inventory to shipments ratio in September was
1.50, up from 1.48 in August and from the low last
December of 1.40.

NEW ORDERS. New orders for durable goods in September
declined $3.9 billion or 3.8 percent to $98.1 billion.
Most of the decline occurred in the transportation
equipment industry; the motor vehicle industry and
defense orders for aircraft and shipbuilding also
showed large declines. Primary metals orders were down
$1.1 billion or 9.9 percent to $10.1 billion. Steel
accounted for $0.7 billion, dropping 14.8 percent to
$4.0 billion; and nonferrous metals $0.3 billion,
declining 6.2 percent to $4.9 billion. Both steel and
nonferrous metals reached highs last November and have


since averaged 2.0 percent and 1.8 percent declines per
month respectively, although the monthly movements were
substantially more volatile.

orders increased in September $0.7
percent to $34.7 billion, with both the
nonelectrical categories going up. This
increase in nonelectrical orders since


SHIPMENTS. Durable goods shipments declined $2.4
billion or 2.4 percent to $98.7 billion. Declines in
transportation equipment and primary metals were
partially offset by an increase in machinery shipments.

Nondurable goods shipments were unchanged from
August at $91.0 billion. Large increases in petroleum
products of $0.9 billion or 5.5 percent and foods of
$0.3 billion or 1.3 percent were offset by declines in
most of the other nondurables, the largest of which was
a $0.6 billion or 3.3 percent decline in chemicals.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The decline in unfilled orders in
September reflected decreases in transportation
equipment and primary metals. Partially offsetting
those declines was a small increase in machinery to
$145.0 billion. Unfilled orders for machinery have
been increasing at the rate of 1.4 percent per month
since February 1983, when they were valued at $115.2
billion.

INVENTORIES. The increase in inventories in September
of $1.7 billion was virtually all in the durable goods
sector. Transportation was up $0.7 billion, fabricated
metals $0.4 billion, and machinery $0.3 billion.
Nondurable inventories were nearly unchanged from
August, as an increase in chemicals was offset by a
decline in foods.

Within the durable goods sector the 0.8 percent
inventory increase was fairly evenly distributed across
the three stages of fabrication, while in the
nondurable goods sector a decline in work in process of
2.5 percent was offset by increases in materials and
supplies of 0.5 percent and finished goods of 0.6
percent.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for October is scheduled for release on November
21, 1984 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on December
