CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS


/,-q Manufacturers' Shipments,

SInventories, and Orders

SEPTEMBER 1985
U.S. Department of Commerce M3-1(85)-9
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS ForWireTransmission 10.00a.m.E.S.T.Thursday, October31,1985

S(All Figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in September
declined $1.1 billion or 0.6 percent from August to $197.7
billion. Both the durable and nondurable sectors had
declines. Durables decreased 0.8 percent and nondurables
0.3 percent. Excluding a large decline in defense capital
goods, manufacturers' new orders increased 0.3 percent.
Shipments of manufactured goods declined $2.6 billion
or 1.3 percent to $194.0 billion, offsetting the August
increase of 1.4 percent. Durable goods were down 2.0
percent and nondurables 0.5 percent.
Manufacturers' unfilled orders increased $3.7 billion
or 1.0 percent to $367.3 billion. This is the 5th
consecutive monthly increase since the backlog declined to
$354.7 billion in April.

Manufacturers' inventories at the end of September were
$284.2 billion, down $0.5 billion or 0.2 percent from
August. This is the 5th decrease in total inventories in
the last 6 months, although all of the declines have been
small. The inventory to shipments ratio in September was
1.46 up from 1.45 in August.
NEW ORDERS. The durable goods new order decline of 0.8
percent resulted from large offsetting movements in several
industries. Transportation equipment was down $1.4 billion
or 4.6 percent to $28.5 billion, as a large decline in
defense aircraft more than offset increases in nondefense
aircraft and defense shipbuilding. Primary metals were down
$1.0 billion or 8.6 percent to $10.1 billion; about two-
thirds of the decline was in the steel industry.
Nonelectrical machinery was down $0.6 billion or 3.6 percent
to $17.2 billion, with most of the categories decreasing.
Electrical machinery had the only large increase, up $2.1
billion or 14.0 percent to $16.7 billion; communication
equipment, both defense and nondefense, accounted for most
of the increase.

The decline in the nondurable goods industries of $0.3
billion or 0.3 percent to $90.8 billion also resulted from
offsetting movements in the specific industries. The
largest increases were in food products, paper, and printing
and publishing; the largest declines were in chemicals and
petroleum products.


SHIPMENTS. The 2.0 percent decline in durable goods
shipments reflected declines in nearly every category.
Transportation equipment was down $0.7 billion or 7.8
percent to $26.1 billion, although the motor vehicle
industry increased 0.9 percent. Primary metals were down
$0.7 billion or 6.2 percent, nonelectrical machinery $0.4
billion or 2.2 percent, and electrical machinery $0.1
billion or 0.9 percent.
The 0.5 percent decline in the nondurable goods sector
resulted mostly from declines in petroleum products,
chemicals, and apparel, with partially offsetting increases
in printing and publishing, foods, and textiles.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The increase of 1.0 percent in
manufacturers' unfilled orders was concentrated in
transportation equipment and electrical machinery.
Transportation was up $2.3 billion or 1.5 percent to $155.5
billion with aircraft increasing $2.4 billion or 1.9
percent. Electrical machinery was up $1.3 billion or 1.6
percent to $82.8 billion, with communication equipment
increasing $1.2 billion or 2.2 percent. In the other major
categories, fabricated metals were up 1.0 percent,
nonelectrical machinery was flat, and primary metals down
0.8 percent.

INVENTORIES. Inventories of durable goods manufacturers
have shown virtually no change the last 3 months, with
increases in transportation equipment offsetting declines in
most of the other major industries. Transportation was up
1.1 percent in both August and September and 0.6 percent in
July; aircraft increased all 3 months, and motor vehicles 2
of these 3 months. The largest declines in September were
in nonelectrical machinery and primary metals.

The declines in nondurable goods inventories totalling
0.6 percent were concentrated in the food and petroleum
products industries; food products were down 1.9 percent and
petroleum 4.4 percent.
