U.S. Department of Commerce
BUREAUOF THE CENSUS Frp WIT i I-r ;.;.


New orders for manufactured goods in March increased $5.1
billion or 3.2 percent from February to $161.8 billion the
Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today.
This is the fourth monthly increase since October, when orders
reached a low of $149.7 billion. New orders declined last month
$3.5 billion or 2.2 percent.
New orders for durable goods increased $2.7 billion or 3.5
percent to $80.8 billion. The new orders increase had originally
been reported at only 0.3 percent. The upward revision was
based on additional survey response and affected most major
industry categories. New orders for nondurable goods were up
$2.4 billion or 3.0 percent to $81.0 billion.
New orders for nondefense capital goods in March were up
$2.0 billion or 10.7 percent to $20.8 billion. This is the largest
one month increase in that series since an 11.9 percent gain in
March 1981. Most of this month's increase was attributable to
the office and computing equipment industry. New orders for
defense capital goods were up $1.5 billion or 25 percent to
$7.7 billion. Defense orders in January and February had large
declines following the December record orders of $11.3 billion.
Within the major industry categories new orders for machinery
increased $2.7 billion or 11.0 percent to $27.4 billion, the
largest increase in that category since the 10.1 percent increase
registered in January 1980. Most of the machinery orders
increase was also attributable to the office and computing
equipment industry. Partially offsetting the increase in new
orders for machinery was a decline in orders for primary metals
of $1.2 billion or 12.8 percent to $8.4 billion New orders for
primary metals had large increases in January of 24 percent and
February of 17 percent.
Shipments of manufactured goods in March increased $3.8
billion or 2.4 percent to $160.2 billion. This increase plus the
January increase of 2.5 percent brings the shipments back close
to the 1982 peak of $161.5 billion.
Within the durable goods sector shipments increased $2.0
billion or 2.5 percent to $79.6 billion. This is the fifth con-
secutive monthly increase since reaching a low last October
of $72.3 billion. The industries showing the largest shipments
increases in March were nonelectrical machinery, up $1.2 billion


or 8.8 percent to $14.8 billion and primary metals, up SO 4
billion or 4.8 percent to $8.4 billion.
Shipments in the nondurable goods sector increased $1.8
billion or 2.3 percent to $80.6 billion in March with most of the
major industries showing increases. The largest increase was in
the petroleum and coal products category which went up $0.9
billion or 6.6 percent to S14.4 billion This is the first increase
in shipments in this category since last September when they
were valued at $17.4 billion.
The value of unfilled orders held by manufacturers was
estimated at $300.1 billion, $1.6 billion or 0.5 percent above
February. This is the fourth monthly increase in backlog follow-
ing sixteen consecutive monthly declines Excluding the orders
backlog for defense capital goods, the decline in the backlog has
been continuous since July 1981.
Within the durable goods sector the value of the orders
backlog increased in most of the major industry categories,
including transportation equipment, machinery, and primary
metals. The orders backlog for nondefense capital goods
decreased $1.6 billion or 1.4 percent to $118.4 billion This is
the 22nd consecutive monthly decline since the peak recorded
in January 1981 of S157.0 billion. The orders backlog for
defense capital goods increased $2.4 billion or 2.5 precent to
$98.0 billion, the fifth consecutive monthly increase.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories in March were
estimated at $257.8 billion, a 1.5 percent decline from January.
Except for a small increase in February 1982 of 0.2 percent,
inventories have been declining in value since November 1981
when they were estimated 11 percent higher at S285.8 billion.
During that time raw material inventories have declined 12.4
percent, work in process inventories 8.8 percent, and finished
goods inventories 8.1 percent. The inventory to shipments ratio
at the end of March was 1.61 down from 1.67 in February. This
is the lowest the ratio has been since the 1.61 recorded in June
1981.
The advance report on durable goods for April in scheduled
for release on May 20, 1983, and the full report is scheduled for
release on June 1, 1983.

PPrelimlnary. 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 engines and turbines in January was 387.4 percent.

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 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.
