New orders for manufactured goods in April increased $3.5
billion or 2.1 percent from March to $166.1 billion, the De-
partment of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today.
Shipments of manufactured goods in April increased $1.6
billion or 1.0 percent to $163.4 billion. Incoming orders have
now exceeded shipments four of the last five months resulting
in a slightly upward trend in the backlog of orders held by
manufactures which had been generally declining since July
1981.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories in April in-
creased for the first time since November 1981. The April esti-
mate of $257.6 billion was up $0.3 billion or 0.1 percent from
March. Despite the increase in inventories, the inventory to
shipments ratio for April was 1.58, the lowest since 1.56 in
July 1979. The ratio has been steadily declining since November
1982 when it was 1.74.
The new orders increase for April was the fifth in the last six
months. New orders for durable goods were up $3.0 billion or
3.8 percent to $83.0 billion. This revises upward the earlier
reported 2.4 percent increase. Over half of the revision was
caused by an increase in the estimate for defense orders.
Within the major industry categories, new orders for ma-
chinery and transportation equipment were up in April. The
increase in machinery orders of $1.1 billion or 4.1 percent to
$30.0 billion reflected increases in both the electrical and non-
electrical categories. The nonelectrical increase was widespread,
while the electrical resulted mostly from an increase in defense
communication equipment. The increase in the transportation
equipment orders of $2.0 billion or 11.2 percent to $20.0
billion reflected gains in most of the specific categories. New
orders for primary metals in April were down $0.3 billion or
3.4 percent from March to $8.9 billion.
New orders for nondefense capital goods in April were up
$2.3 billion or 11.7 percent to $22.4 billion. This is the largest
one month increase since February 1979 when orders increased
14.3 percent and were valued at $24.3 billion. The April in-
crease in new orders for nondefense capital goods was mostly
attributable to the commercial aircraft industry, where -an
increase brought orders back approximately to the January level
of $2.5 billion. New orders for defense capital goods in April
increased $0.4 billion or 6.4 percent to $7.0 billion.

entries, and Orders


APRIL 1983
N NM3-1 (83)-4
IRE TRANSMISSION3:00 P.M. E.D.T. Wednesday. June 1,1983


The increase in shipments of manufactured goods in April of
1.0 percent was reflected in both the durable and nondurable
goods industries, although the patterns of change within the
sectors were quite different. Within the durable goods sector,
which in total was up $0.8 billion or 1.0 percent to $80.4
billion, most of the major industry categories increased.
Within the nondurable goods sector, shipments in total were
up $0.8 billion or 1.0 percent to $83.0 billion. The petroleum
products industry alone reported a $0.9 billion or 6.0 percent
increase to $16.0 billion, following a $1.1 billion or 8.0 percent
increase in March. Petroleum products shipments had declined
from a high last July of $18.0 billion to $14.0 billion in Feb-
ruary. Shipments by the other nondurable goods industries
showed offsetting increases and decreases.
The value of unfilled orders held by manufacturers at the
end of April was estimated at $308.8 billion, up $2.7 billion or
0.9 percent. Excluding the orders backlog for defense capital
goods, the durable goods backlog was up 0.5 percent.
The backlog of orders for nondefense capital goods at
$119.0 billion for April was up $0.3 billion or 0.3 percent
from March. An increase in the computing equipment industry
was partially offset by declines in most of the other categories.
The backlog of orders for defense capital goods increased $1.7
billion or 1.7 percent to $104.4 billion. This is a continuation
of the upward trend which began in January 1980, when the
defense backlog was estimated at $49.9 billion.
The increase in the value of manufacturers' inventories in
April of $0.3 billion was concentrated in the durable goods
sector. The largest increases were in steel, motor vehicles and
parts, and communication equipment. The nondurable goods
industries showed a decline of $0.2 billion or 0.2 percent in
their inventory to a level of $87.7 billion. Inventories by stage
of fabrication in April showed increases in raw materials and
supplies of 0.3 percent, and work in process of 0.2 percent,
while finished goods declined 0.2 percent. A decline in finished
goods for the nondurable goods industries of 1.2 percent was
partially offset by an increase in finished goods in the durable
goods sector of 0.7 percent.
The advance report on durable goods for May is scheduled
for release on June 21, 1983, and the full report is scheduled for
release on June 30, 1983.


The January through April data presented in t .tqr .h with the revised data for 1977-1982 released May 19, 1983,
by the Department of Commerce, Bureau of the se revisions, published in "Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories,
and Orders: 1977-1982" (M3-1.12), reflect: benchmarking of the shipments and inventory data to the 1981 Annual Survey of
Manufactures; benchmarking defense shipments to the series MA-175, "Shipments to Federal Government Agencies," revisions
to unfilled orders levels; recalculation of new orders estimates which are derived from the estimates of unfilled orders and
shipments; and updating of seasonal adjustment factors.
