~~T Figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in January
increased $0.9 billion or 0.4 percent from December to
$202.1 billion. This is the third consecutive monthly
increase. Defense capital goods accounted for the January
increase. Excluding defense, orders for manufactured goods
declined 1.2 percent.

Shipments in January increased $0.4 billion or 0.2
percent from December to $199.4 billion; durable goods were
up 0.3 percent while nondurable goods were flat.

Unfilled orders in January increased $2.7 billion or
0.7 percent to $366.5 billion. The increase was primarily
in the defense order backlog. Without defense, there was a
decline of 0.2 percent.

Manufacturers' inventories declined $1.2 billion or 0.4
percent to $280.7 billion, the seventh consecutive monthly
decline. The inventory to shipments ratio for the month was
1.41, about the same as November and December.

NEW ORDERS. The new orders increase was concentrated in the
defense orders components of durable goods. Defense capital
goods in total were up $3.2 billion or 45 percent to $10.3
billion.

Within the major industries, transportation equipment
increased $0.3 billion or 0.8 percent to $31.3 billion, an
increase in motor vehicles and parts of 14.1 percent more
than offset a decline in aircraft of 13.6 percent.

Both of the machinery categories showed order declines
in January; electrical was down $0.3 billion or 1.7 percent
to $16.0 billion, while nonelectrical was down $0.3 billion
or 1.6 percent to $15.9 billion. There was a mixture of
increases and decreases in both categories. New orders for
nondurable goods declined $0.5 billion or 0.5 percent to
$93.2 billion, with large fluctuations in several
industries.

SHIPMENTS. Shipments within the durable and nondurable
goods sectors showed large offsetting increases and
decreases. Within durable goods, motor vehicles and parts
were up $2.0 billion or 11.7 percent to $19.5 billion, with
smaller increases in lumber; stone, clay, and glass; and
miscellaneous durable goods.

Large declines occurred in electrical machinery, down $1.4
billion or 8.6 percent to $14.9 billion, nonelectrical
machinery, down $0.5 billion or 3.1 percent to $17.1
billion, and aircraft and parts, down $1.1 billion or 12.5
percent to $7.9 billion.


Within nondurable goods, foods increased $1.0 billion
or 3.9 percent, chemicals $0.7 billion or 3.6 percent, and
paper $0.3 billion or 3.5 percent. Tobacco manufactures
declined $1.0 billion or 49 percent and petroleum products
$0.7 billion or 4.3 percent.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The increase in unfilled orders resulted
mostly from increases in transportation equipment and
electrical machinery. Transportation was up $2.5 billion or
1.6 percent to $156.6 billion; excluding defense aircraft
and shipbuilding there was a slight decline. An increase in
electrical machinery of $1.1 billion or 1.3 percent to $83.5
billion offset a decrease in nonelectrical of $1.1 billion
or 1.9 percent to $58.3 billion.

The nondefense capital goods industries as a group
declined $1.1 billion or 0.8 percent to $132.7 billion. The
nondefense backlog peaked in September 1984 at $137.1
billion and has been generally declining since then.

The defense unfilled orders increased $3.1 billion or
2.2 percent to $144.6 billion, 39.4 percent of the total
manufacturing backlog.

INVENTORIES. The decline in manufacturers' inventories
continued a downward trend which began ten months ago after
peaking in March at $286.2 billion. Within the durable
goods sector, which was down 0.3 percent, declines in
primary metals and fabricated metals more than offset small
increases in electrical machinery, nonelectrical machinery
and transportation equipment. Nondurable goods inventories
were down 0.7 percent; petroleum products declined $0.6
billion or 7.5 percent.

Inventories by stage of fabrl n for durable goods
showed a 2.2 percent decline in maters and supplies and
small increases in work in process, and finished goods. In
nondurable goods, a 2.8 percent decline in work in process
and a 1.1 percent decline in finished goods more than offset
a small increase in materials and supplies.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for February is scheduled for release on March 25,
1986 at 8:30 a.m. and the full report on April 1, 1986 at
10:00 a.m.

PPreliminary. rRevised. (n) When new orders for a prior month are negative because of cancellations, the percentage change calculation is
algebraically negative, even though there is a net dollar increase from the prior month to the current month. Using absolute values the percent increase
in new orders for shipbuilding and military tank vehicles in December was 152.0 percent.
I Shipments 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 regrouping 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.
