New orders for manufactured goods in February declined
$3.5 billion or 2.2 percent from January to $156.8 billion, the
Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today.
This decrease followed three consecutive monthly increases in
the series, which had declined to a low of $149.7 billion by last
October. The February decline in new orders for durable goods
of 3.2 percent resulted mostly from a decrease in orders for
defense capital goods. Defense new orders in February were esti-
mated at $6.1 billion, down $2.7 billion or 31 percent from
January and $5.2 billion or 46 percent from December;
December and January were record high levels for defense
orders. Excluding the defense category, new orders for manu-
factured goods in February declined 0.5 percent.
New orders for nondefense capital goods declined $1.5
billion or 7.2 percent to $19.0 billion in February, after re-
maining relatively flat since last September when they were
valued at $20.3 billion. Declines in the February new orders for
most of the transportation equipment and nonelectrical
machinery components of the nondefense capital goods cate-
gory were only partially offset by increases in the electrical
machinery components.
In contrast to the capital goods industries, new orders for
noncapital durable goods items increased. The primary metals
industries recorded a second large increase in new orders in as
many months. New orders in February were up $1.5 billion or
18.3 percent to $9.8 billion and in January $1.6 billion or
24 percent, after declining to $6.7 billion in December. Both
the steel and nonferrous metals categories have shown sub-
stantial gains.
Shipments of manufactured goods in February declined $0.6
billion or 0.4 percent to $156.0 billion as a decline in the non-
durable goods sector was only partially offset by an increase in
durable goods shipments. The decrease in the nondurable sector
of $0.8 billion or 1.0 percent was due primarily to a decline in


the petroleum industry of $0.9 billion or 6.4 percent to $13.8
billion. Shipments of petroleum products have declined six of
the last seven months after reaching the 1982 high in July of
$17.7 billion. Shipments of durable goods in February increased
$0.1 billion or 0.2 percent to $77.4 billion. An increase in the
transportation equipment industry was offset by declines in
most of the other major industry categories. Shipments of
transportation equipment were up $1.0 billion or 5.7 percent
to $18.5 billion, the highest recorded since the $18.5 billion
recorded in June 1981. Within transportation equipment
category, the motor vehicle and parts industry was up $1.0
billion or 9.7 percent to $11.3 billion, following a 20.2 percent
gain last month.
The backlog of orders held by manufacturers increased $0.8
billion or 0.3 percent in February to $299.0 billion. This is the
third consecutive monthly increase in the backlog, with the
defense capital goods category accounting for most of the
gain. Excluding defense, the value of the orders backlog declined
in February $0.2 billion or 0.1 percent to $203.3 billion.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories in February
was estimated at $261.6 billion, a 0.2 percent decline from
January and the 12th consecutive monthly decrease. Inventories
by stage of fabrication showed a slight change in pattern this
month. Finished goods inventories increased $0.2 billion or 0.2
percent to $82.2 billion, the first increase since last August.
Raw material inventories declined $0.7 billion or 0.8 percent to
$86.7 billion. The raw materials category has declined 13 of the
last 15 months after peaking in November 1981 at $97.0 billion.
Work in process inventories were unchanged from January.
The inventory of shipments ratio in February was 1.68, up
from 1.67 last month.
The advance report on durable goods for March is sched-
uled for release on April 21, 1983, and full report is scheduled
for release on May 2, 1983.

PPreliminary. rRevised. (n) When new orders for a prior month are negative because of cancellations, the rr--ntri- -inge calculation is
algebraically negative, even though there is a net dollar increase from the prior month to the current month. Using I r.- the percent increase
in new orders for engines and turbines in January was 387.4 percent.

Shipments and new orders are the totals for the period and are adi;;r- F-r rr-;lig-day and calendar-month variations; unfilled orders and inventories
are as of the end of the period and are not adjusted for trading-day i.1-- r,, variations.
The supplementary series are regroupings 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.
