SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in November
increased $2.0 billion or 1.0 percent from October to $197.4
billion. The increase was attributable to the nondurable
goods sector, up $2.3 billion or 2.5 percent to $93.2
billion. The durable goods sector had a slight decline,
down $0.3 billion or 0.3 percent to $104.2 billion, revising
down the earlier reported 0.9 percent increase.

Shipments of manufactured goods increased $3.1 billion
or 1.6 percent to $200.4 billion. This is the third
increase in the last four months and the largest since the
1.6 percent increase in December 1984. Both the durable and
nondurable goods sectors were up this month.

Manufacturers' unfilled orders declined $3.0 billion or
0.8 percent to $362.0 billion, following a 0.5 percent
decrease in October. Prior to that, consecutive increases
since April had raised unfilled orders to a September high
of $366.8 billion.

Manufacturers' inventories decreased slightly from
October, down $0.7 billion or 0.2 percent to $281.8 billion.
Except for a small increase in June, inventories have been
declining since March of this year when they were estimated
at $286.2 billion. The inventory to shipments ratio dropped
to 1.41 from 1.43 in October and 1.46 in September.

NEW ORDERS. The increase in new orders for nondurable goods
of 2.5 percent resulted mostly from large increases in the
foods and petroleum products industries. In both of these
industries new orders equal shipments for the month.

The decline in new orders for durable goods of 0.3
percent resulted from offsetting increases and decreases.
Transportation equipment was down $1.9 billion or 7.1
percent to $24.6 billion, following a 5.6 percent decline in
October. In both months declines in aircraft and
shipbuilding more than offset increases in the motor vehicle
industry. Primary metals declined $0.3 billion or 2.8
percent to $10.5 billion, following a 5.3 percent increase
in October. Several of the other major industries
increased: nonelectrical machinery was up $1.3 billion or
7.5 percent to $18.0 billion; electrical machinery, up $0.5
billion or 3.0 percent to $16.3 billion; instruments, up
$0.2 billion or 4.3 percent to $4.8 billion; and fabricated
metal products, up $0.2 billion or 1.6 percent to $15.1
billion.


SHIPMENTS. Shipments of durable goods in November increased
$0.7 billion or 0.6 percent to $107.1 billion. This is the
third increase in the last four months, following virtually
no change during the first seven months of the year. The
November increase was concentrated in the machinery
industries; the electrical category was up $0.5 billion or
3.4 percent to $16.4 billion, and the nonelectrical $0.3
billion or 1.6 percent to $18.3 billion. Transportation
equipment was flat at $27.4 billion, as an increase in the
motor vehicle industry was offset by a decline in aircraft.

Nondurable goods shipments increased $2.5 billion or
2.7 percent to $93.2 billion. Food products were up $1.3
billion or 5.3 percent to $25.4 billion and petroleum up
$0.7 billion or 4.5 percent to $16.7 billion.


UNFILLED ORDERS. The decline in unfilled orders for durable
goods of 0.8 percent was concentrated in the transportation
equipment industry. Cancellations and backlog adjustments
in the aircraft and shipbuilding industries lowered the
transportation backlog $2.8 billion or 1.8 percent to $151.3
billion. The decline in unfilled orders for nondurable
goods was 0.5 percent.

INVENTORIES. Inventories in the durable goods industries
were down $0.4 billion or 0.2 percent to $190.1 billion.
Transportation equipment increased 0.8 percent while
electrical and nonelectrical machinery were each down 1.2
percent. Nondurahbles goods inventories declined 0.3 percent
as an increase in petroleum of 4.7 percent was more than
offset by declines in most of the other categories.

By stage of fabrication, a decline in materials and
supplies of 1.1 percent was partially offset by a 0.3
percent increase in finished goods; there was no change in
work in process.
