CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS


r, Manufacturers' Shipments,

Inventories, and Orders
"""Sof September 1986


U.S. Department of Commerce
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS


For Wire Transmission 10:00 a.m. E.S.T. Fi


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


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in September
increased $6.6 billion or 3.4 percent to $199.4 billion, the
largest 1-month increase since the 4.4 percent gain in
November 1984. Durable goods were up 5.0 percent and
nondurables 1.6 percent.

Shipments of manufactured goods increased $3.0 billion
or 1.5 percent to $196.3 billion, following 3 months of
little change. Durable goods in September were up 1.9
percent and nondurables 1.1 percent.

Unfilled orders held by manufacturers increased $3.1
billion or 0.9 percent to $368.6 billion, the largest
increase since the 0.9 percent increase in September 1985.
Manufacturers' inventories declined $0.7 billion or 0.2
percent to $276.8 billion, continuing a downward trend which
began in April 1985. The inventory to shipments ratio in
September dropped to 1.41 from the 1.44 ratio of the prior 4
months.

NEW ORDERS. The increase in September new orders resulted
from widespread increases in both the durable and nondurable
goods areas. Of the $5.2 billion increase in durable goods,
transportation equipment was up $2.3 billion or 8.5 percent
to $29.0 billion and electrical machinery, up $1.8 billion
or 11.0 percent to $17.7 billion, with smaller increases in
other major industries except primary metals. About half of
the increase in transportation was in aircraft and parts and
the other half in motor vehicles and parts. (A large part
of the motor vehicle increase reflects an increase in
shipments.) About half of the increase in electrical
machinery was in communication equipment, with the rest
distributed among all of the other electrical categories.
Nonelectrical machinery orders were up $0.2 billion or 1.3
percent to $16.8 billion, with larger offsetting movements
occurring in the various categories; the largest increase
was in engines and turbines, up $0.7 billion and the largest
decline in office and computing equipment, down $0.8
billion.

The increase in nondurable goods of $1.4 billion or 1.6
percent to $90.4 billion was widespread and mostly reflected
shipments increases.


SHIPMENTS. Shipments of durable good'- lion
or 1.9 percent to $106.1 billion. A" t-fL *he major
industries except instruments and related products
increased. Electrical machinery was up $0.4 billion,
primary metals, fabricated metals, and nonelectrical
machinery were each up $0.3 billion and transportation
equipment $0.2 billion. Within transportation, an increase
in motor vehicles and parts of $0.8 billion or 4.7 percent
more than offset declines in the other categories.

Increases in shipments in the nondurable goods sector
also were widespread with only chemicals and petroleum
products declining.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Virtually all of the increase in unfilled
orders was in durable goods, up $2.9 billion or 0.8 percent.
$1.9 billion of the increase was in transportation equipment
with both defense and nondefense aircraft and parts
increasing. Electrical machinery was up $0.5 billion, most
of that due to an increase in nondefense communication
equipment. The slight increase in nonelectrical machinery
resulted mostly from offsetting movements in the specific
categories.

INVENTORIES. Inventories of durable goods manufacturers
were estimated at $186.2 billion, showing little change from
August; increases in transportation equipment and fabricated
metals were nearly offset by declines in most of the other
categories. Inventories of nondurable goods manufacturers
declined $0.8 billion or 0.9 percent to $90.6 billion,
mostly due to a $0.7 billion or 3.0 percent decline in food
products and a $0.3 billion or 6.0 percent decline in
petroleum products.

Inventories by stage of fabrication showed little
change in materials and supplies and work in process.
Finished goods inventories, however, declined 1.2 percent;
durable goods were down 0.7 percent and nondurables 1.7
percent.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for October is scheduled for release on November 25,
1986 at 8:30 a.m. and the full report on December 4, 1986 at
10:00 a.m.
