SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in October
increased $1.3 billion or 0.7 percent from September to $182.2
billion. An increase of 3.1 percent in new orders for durable
goods was partially offset by a 1.7 percent decline in orders for
nondurable goods. The value of manufacturers' shipments
decreased $2.1 billion or 1.2 percent to $176.5 billion, with
widespread declines in both the durable and nondurable goods
sectors. The level of manufacturers' unfilled orders increased in
October $5.7 billion or 1.8 percent to $328.7 billion, the largest
one month increase since the end of the recession last November.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories at the end of
October increased slightly from September to $260.4 billion.
September inventories were revised downward $0.9 billion
to $260.0 billion.

NEW ORDERS. The increase in orders for manufactured
durable goods in October of 3.1 percent was the largest since
the 7.6 percent gain in June. While new orders showed an
average increase of over 3.0 percent per month during the
first half of 1983, there was little growth between June and
September.
About three fourths of the October increase in new orders
was caused by the aircraft and parts industry. Orders for that
industry were estimated at $7.6 billion, up $2.1 billion or
37 percent from September. So far this year new orders for the
aircraft and parts industry are running 16 percent ahead of the
same time last year. The only other sizable increase in orders
in October was in the electrical machinery category where
orders increased $0.7 billion or 4.7 percent to $15.1 billion. The
largest decline in new orders was in the steel industry which
decreased $0.3 billion or 6.3 percent to $4.6 billion. New
orders for nondurable goods declined 1.7 percent to $88.4
billion.
Within the capital goods industries new orders for nondefense
capital goods rose $1.3 billion or 5.2 percent to $26.5 billion,
with the largest increase coming in the aircraft and parts industry.
Orders for defense capital goods were up $0.7 billion or 14.1
percent to $5.6 billion.


SHIPMENTS. Shipments of manufactured goods in October
declined for the first time since the 0.8 percent decrease in July
and for only the second time this year. Within the durable goods
sector, which was down $1.1 billion or 1.2 percent, virtually
all major industries except primary metals declined. Primary
metals shipments increased $0.2 billion or 2.1 percent due to
an increase in nonferrous metals shipments. Within the non-
durable goods sector, which was down $1.0 billion or 1.1
percent, 5 of the 10 major industry categories declined. The
largest decrease was in petroleum product shipments, down
$0.8 billion or 4.8 percent to $16.1 billion. The largest in-
crease in shipments was in the printing and publishing industry.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The large increase in the orders backlog
of manufacturers of 1.8 percent reflected gains in virtually all
major categories. The largest increases were in transportation
equipment, up $2.2 billion or 1.7 percent, and electrical and
nonelectrical machinery, up $1.5 billion and $1.7 billion
respectively. For those few nondurable goods categories which
carry backlog data, unfilled orders declined 2.0 percent.


INVENTORIES. The book value of manufacturers inventories
at the end of October increased $0.4 billion or 0.1 percent from
September. Inventories reached a post recession low of $257.3
billion in March. After advancing slightly to $260.0 billion in
August there has been little change reported in the last 2 months.
Materials and supplies inventories declined 0.7 percent in
October to $86.6 billion after increasing 2.8 percent between
March and September. Work in process inventories increased
0.9 percent in October to $91.6 billion, while finished goods
inventories increased 0.1 percent to $82.2 billion.


SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on
durable goods for November is scheduled for release on
December 21, 1983, and the full report is scheduled for release
on January 3, 1984.

PPreliminary. rRevised. (n) When new orders for a prior month at* 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.

1Shipments 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.
