BUREAU OF THE CENSUS


New orders for manufactured goods in tihr&ebf
billion or 1.9 percent to $169.6 billion the npt t of
Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today. This is the
third consecutive monthly increase in orders and the sixth
in the last seven months, since reaching a low last October
of $152.4 billion. The value of shipments by manufacturers also
increased for the third month in a row, and six of the last seven
months. The May increase in shipments was $4.6 billion or 2.8
percent to $167.9 billion, the largest one month percentage
increase since a 4.0 percent gain in September 1980. The back-
log of orders held by manufacturers at the end of May was
$310.6 billion, up $1.6 billion or 0.5 percent from April.
The book value of inventories held by manufacturers at the
end of May was $258.4 billion, up $1.0 billion or 0.4 percent
from April. This is the first significant increase in inventories
since November of 1981 when they were valued at $284.3
billion. Last month's increase was less than 0.1 percent. With
the value of shipments showing steady gains for the last several
months, the inventory to shipments ratio has been declining.
The May ratio was 1.54, the lowest since a 1.53 in May 1979.
The increases in new orders for manufactured goods in May
were widespread. New orders for the durable goods sector,
were up $1.1 billion or 1.3 percent to $84.5 billion. This revised
upward the earlier reported 0.2 percent increase. New orders for
primary metals were up $1.1 billion or 12.0 percent to $10.0
billion; for fabricated metals, $0.7 billion or 7.0 percent to
$10.0 billion; for electrical machinery, $0.4 billion or 2.9 per-
cent to $13.6 billion; and for nonelectrical machinery, $0.3
billion or 2.0 percent to $15.1 billion. While orders for trans-
portation equipment declined $1.7 billion or 8.6 percent to
$18.5 billion, the decrease was attributable to a decline in
defense orders. Excluding the defense component, orders for
transportation equipment increased. New orders for the non-
durable goods sector were up $2.1 billion or 2.6 percent to
$85.1 billion.
New orders for nondefense capital goods in May declined
$0.5 billion or 2.0 percent, following a large increase in April
of 12.8 percent. New orders for defense capital goods were
down $2.4 billion or 34 percent to $4.7 billion. Although this
series is quite unstable on a month to month basis, new orders
have shown a steep upward trend since the beginning of 1980.
The increase in manufacturers' shipments in May was
similarly widespread. Durable goods shipments, which were

up 3.1 percent, reflected increases in all the major industry
categories except Instruments and Related Products. Primary
metals shipments were up $0.6 billion or 6.2 percent to $9.5
billion; fabricated metals, up $0.5 billion or 4.8 percent to
$10.1 billion; nonelectrical machinery, up $0.4 billion or 3.1
percent to $14.6 billion, and transportation equipment, up
$0.5 billion or 2.8 percent to $19.3 billion. The increase in
transportation equipment was caused by a $1.1 billion or 9.7
percent increase in the motor vehicle and parts category, which
was partially offset by declines in most of the other transpor-
tation components.
Shipments by the nondurable goods sector were up $2.1
billion or 2.5 percent to $84.9 billion. The foods and chemicals
products industries accounted for about three fourths of the
increase, although most of the other industries were also up.
The backlog of orders held by manufacturers at the end of
May was estimated at $310.6 billion, up $1.6 billion or 0.5
percent from April. Since reaching a low last November of
$298.1 billion, the value of unfilled orders has been increasing
each month, except for a 0.1 percent decline in February. The
backlog excluding defense orders increased for the second
straight month, following a downward trend which began 2
years ago.
Within the capital goods sector, the backlog of orders for
defense capital goods in May declined $0.5 billion or 0.5 per-
cent to $104.0 billion, following 7 months of increases. The
backlog of orders for nondefense capital goods increased $0.4
billion or 0.3 percent to $119.5 billion, following a 0.4 percent
increase in April.
The increase in the value of manufacturers' inventories in
May of $1.0 billion or 0.4 percent was concentrated in the
durable goods sector. The largest increases were in electrical
machinery and transportation equipment. The nondurable
goods industries showed a slight increase of $0.1 billion or 0.1
percent in their inventory to a level of $87.7 billion. Increases
in the foods, textiles, and petroleum products industries offset
declines in most of the other categories. Inventories by stage of
fabrication in May showed increases in raw materials and
supplies of 0.3 percent, work in process of 0.6 percent, and
finished goods of 0.2 percent.
The advance report on durable goods for June is scheduled
for release on July 22, 1983, and the full report is scheduled
for release on August 2, 1983.
