manufacturers' Shipments,

Inventories, and Orders


JANUARY 1983
M3-1(83)-1
POR WIRE TRANSMISSION 2:30 P.M. E.S.T. THURSDAY, MARCH 3,1983


(All figures in text below are in seasonally adjusted current dollars.)


New orders for manufactured goods in January increased
$3.8 billion or 2.4 percent from December to $160.1 billion,
the Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported
today. This is the third consecutive monthly increase in this
series. The January orders estimate is $12.0 billion below the
high recorded in July 1981 of $172.1 billion.
Shipments of manufactured goods in January increased $3.4
billion or 2.2 percent to $156.2 billion. Shipments had been
relatively unchanged in October through December at approxi-
mately $152 billion. The backlog of orders held by manu-
facturers at the end of January showed an increase of $3.9
billion or 1.3 percent to $298.4 billion, following a 1.2 percent
increase in December. Prior to that, the orders backlog had
declined 16 consecutive months. The increase in the orders
backlog the last 2 months was mainly caused by large defense
orders. Without the defense category, the orders backlog in
December declined 1.3 percent but in January showed a small
increase of 0.2 percent.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories decreased in
January $2.6 billion or 1.0 percent to $262.6 billion. Except
for a small increase last February, inventories have been de-
clining since November 1981 when they were valued $23.1
billion higher at $285.8 billion. The inventory to shipments
ratio for January dropped to 1.68, down substantially from
the December ratio of 1.74.
Within the durable goods sector, the January new orders
of $80.7 billion include $8.6 billion in defense orders. Although
defense orders for January were down 24 percent from Decem-
ber, the January orders level is second only to the record
December estimate of $11.3 billion. Without the defense
decline, new orders for durable goods increased 10.5 percent in
January.
Within the major industry categories, the January increase
in orders was predominantly in noncapital goods items: steel
orders were up $1.0 billion or 40 percent to $3.5 billion; non-


ferrous metal orders were up $0.4 billion or 12 percent to $4.0
billion; motor vehicle and parts orders were up $1.7 billion or
20 percent to $10.6 billion; and construction related industries,
i.e., lumber, furniture, and stone, clay, and glass products were
together up 14 percent. New orders for nondefense capital
goods in January increased $0.8 billion or 3.7 percent to $20.9
billion. New orders for nondurable goods were down $0.3
billion or 0.4 percent for the month to $79.3 billion.
As with new orders, the January increase in manufacturers'
shipments of 2.2 percent was attributable to the durable goods
sector, where increases in noncapital goods categories were
widespread. The motor vehicle and parts industry accounted
for over half the increase, going up $1.8 billion or 21 percent
to $10.4 billion. Within the capital goods categories, shipments
of nondefense capital goods were down $0.5 billion or 2.3
percent to $21.4 billion; while shipments of defense capital
goods were down $0.1 billion or 1.1 percent to $5.0 billion.
Although the value of the orders backlog increased in January
1.3 percent and in December 1.2 percent following 16 consecu-
tive monthly declines, the patterns of change among the indus-
tries were mixed. For the capital goods sector, the backlog of
orders for nondefense capital goods continued downward,
declining $0.5 billion or 0.4 percent to $122.4 billion in
January, while the defense backlog continued increasing, this
month up $3.5 billion or 3.9 percent to $94.3 billion.
The decrease in the book value of manufacturers' inventories
was concentrated in the durable goods sector where every major
industry category except lumber showed declines. Within the
nondurable goods sector, the value of inventories increased $0.4
billion or 0.4 percent to $88.6 billion, with the largest increase
coming in the petroleum products industry, which was up $0.5
billion or 5.1 percent to $9.7 billion.
The advance report on durable goods for February is sched-
uled for release on March 22, 1983, and full report is scheduled
for release on March 31, 1983.

PPreliminary. rRevised.

(n) When new orders for a prior month are negative because of cancellat:,ns, 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 engines and turbines in
January was 387.4 percent.

1Shipments and new orders are the totals for the period and are adjusted for trading-day and calendar-month variations; unfilled orders and inventories are as
of he end of the period and are not adjusted for trading-day or calendar-month variations.
The supplementary series are regroupings of the separate industry categories: Household durable goods industries includes household furniture; kitchen
articles and pottery; cutlery, handtools, and hardware; household appliances, radio and TV, ophthalmic goods, watches, and clocks; and miscellaneous personal
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; aircraft
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."
