S- FOR WIRE TRANSMISSION 3:00 P.M. E.D.T. Monday, October 3, 1983


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


New orders for manufactured goods in August increased
$1.9 billion or 1.1 percent to $177.3 billion the Department
of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today. This
followed a 1.7 percent decline in July. Excluding a large decline
in the defense capital goods category, new orders for manu-
factured goods increased 2.5 percent.
Shipments of manufactured goods in August increased $2.7
billion or 1.6 percent to $175.3 billion. Shipments have now
increased 8 of the last 10 months, since reaching a low last
October of $154.2 billion. The backlog of orders held by manu-
facturers at the end of August was estimated at $320.3 billion;
up $2.0 billion or 0.6 percent from July. Except for a slight
decline in February, the backlog of orders has been increasing
since last November when a low of $298.1 billion was recorded.
The book value of manufacturers inventories at the end of
August was estimated at $259.9 billion, up $1.7 billion or 0.7
percent from July. This is the largest one month increase since
a 1.0 percent rise in September 1981. Virtually all of the
August increase was in the materials and supplies category
which increased 1.8 percent; finished goods inventories were up
0.7 percent, while work in process inventories declined 0.4
percent. The inventory to shipments ratio for August was 1.48,
down from 1.50 in July, as the increase in shipments in August
more than offset the large inventory increase.
New orders in the durable goods sector were up $1.1 billion
or 1.2 percent in August to $89.3 billion. This revises upward
the 0.3 percent increase reported earlier. The largest increase
from July to August occurred in the transportation equipment
category, where orders were up $1.3 billion or 6.2 percent to
$21.8 billion. Increases in the motor vehicle and parts and air-
craft industries were partially offset by a decline in shipbuild-
ing. New orders for primary metals increased $0.5 billion or
4.8 percent in August to $10.9 billion. Although the primary
metals industries have shown substantial gains since the first
of the year they are still 16 percent below the peak in January
1980 of $12.9 billion. New orders for nonelectrical machinery
in August increased $0.5 billion or 3.2 percent to $15.3 billion,
with nearly all of the specific categories showing increases.
New orders for electrical machinery declined in August $1.2
billion or 7.9 percent to $13.5 billion, following a 9.5 percent
increase last month.


Shipments in the durable goods sector were up $2.0 billion
or 2.3 percent to $87.6 billion. Most of the increase was caused
by a $2.0 billion or 15.6 percent gain in the motor vehicle
and parts category. Excluding the motor vehicle increase, ship-
ments of durable goods showed little change; declines in the
machinery and instruments and related products industries
were offset by increases in most of the other categories. Ship-
ments in the nondurable goods sector increased $0.7 billion or
0.8 percent in August to $87.7 billion. Most of the industries
showed increases with the largest dollar increase coming in the
printing and publishing industry. The largest decline was in
petroleum product shipments.
The increase in the orders backlog of manufacturers in
August of 0.6 percent was concentrated in the primary metals
and machinery categories. Unfilled orders for primary metals
increased $0.9 billion or 3.8 percent to $24.7 billion, while
unfilled orders for machinery increased $1.0 billion or 0.8
percent to $120.9 billion. About two thirds of the machinery
increase was in the electrical category.
The inventory increase at the end of August of $1.7 billion
or 0.7 percent was reflected in both the durable and nondurable
goods sector. Inventories of durable goods manufacturers in-
creased $0.8 billion or 0.5 percent to $170.5 billion as a result
of widespread increases in the specific categories. Inventories of
nondurable goods manufacturers increased $0.9 billion or 1.0
percent to $89.4 billion with most of the increase coming in
the food products and chemicals industries.
Within the capital goods industries new orders for nondefense
capital goods in August increased $1.4 billion or 6.4 percent to
$23.0 billion, following an 11.2 percent decline last month.
New orders for defense capital goods were down $2.3 billion or
34 percent following a 13.1 percent decrease in July and a 66
percent increase in June. The backlog of orders for nondefense
captial goods at the end of August was valued at $119.9 billion,
up $0.5 billion or 0.4 percent from July. Since dropping from a
high of $156.8 billion in January 1981 to a low in March 1983
of $118.7 billion, the nondefense backlog has begun edging up
slightly, despite an 0.8 percent decline last month.
The advance report on durable goods for September is sched-
uled for release on October 25, 1983, and the full report is
scheduled for release on November 2, 1983.
