SUMMARY. New orders for manufacturdeg gk:ovember
increased $4.0 billion or 2.2 percent from October to
$185.8 billion. Sixty percent of that increase was
attributable to new orders for defense capital goods.
Excluding the defense category November orders were up
0.9 percent. Shipments of manufactured goods in
November increased $4.6 billion or 2.6 percent to
$181.4 billion, following a 1.0 percent decline last
month. The level of manufacturers' unfilled orders
increased $4.4 billion or 1.3 percent in November to
$332.5 billion. This is 12 percent above the recession
low in November a year ago of $298.1 billion. Without
the defense capital goods category, the orders backlog
showed a 0.9 percent increase. The book value of
manufacturers' inventories at the end of November was
estimated at $260.7 billion, showing little change from
October.

NEW ORDERS. The increase in manufacturers' new orders
in November of 2.2 percent resulted mostly from gains
in the durable goods sector. New orders for
transportation equipment increased $3.7 billion or 17.3
percent to $24.9 billion, with much of the increase
reflecting large defense orders for aircraft and
shipbuilding. New orders for the motor vehicle and
parts industry, which for the most part reflects
shipments for the month, showed an increase of 8.4
percent.

New orders for primary metals in November increased
$0.8 billion or 7.4 percent to $11.7 billion, the
largest one month gain since the 11.3 percent increase
last May. Nearly all of this month's increase in
orders was in the nonferrous category. New orders for
the steel industry declined for the second month in a
row.

New orders for machinery in November were down $2.0
billion or 6.0 percent to $30.6 billion. This is the
first major decline in this category since orders began
an upward trend in February when they were valued at
$24.7 billion. The November decline resulted from
decreases in the electrical and nonelectrical
categories.

Within the capital goods sector, new orders for
nondefense capital goods declined $1.3 billion or 4.9
percent to $24.7 billion. Declines were reported in
most of the component categories although nondefense
communications equipment increased. New orders for
defense capital goods were up $2.4 billion or 44 per-
cent to $8.0 billion, the largest one month volume
since the $9.6 billion in orders recorded in January of
this year.


SHIPMENTS. The Increase In shipments of manufactured
goods in November of 2.6 percent was almost all
attributable to the durable goods industries. Every
major industry except instruments showed significant
gains.

Shipments of transportation equipment were up $1.9
billion or 9.7 percent to $21.8 billion mostly as a
result of an increase in the motor vehicle and parts
industry of 10.4 percent. Shipments of machinery were
up $1.1 billion or 3.6 percent to $30.3 billion while
shipments of primary metals were up $0.5 billion or 4.9
percent to $10.8 billion.

Shipments by the nondurable goods industries
increased $0.4 billion or 0.5 percent to $89.0 billion,
but the pattern within the specific industries was
mixed. The largest increases were in the tobacco,
apparel, and rubber and plastics products industries,
while the largest declines were in foods and textile
products.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The backlog of orders held by
manufacturers at the end of November was valued at
$332.5 billion, up $4.4 billion or 1.3 percent from
October. Following the recession low in November a
year ago of $298.1 billion, the unfilled order level
has been increasing at an average rate of nearly one
percent a month. This month's backlog increases were
concentrated in the transportation equipment industry,
up $3.1 billion or 2.4 percent to $131.2 billion, and
the primary metals industry, up $0.9 billion or 3.3
percent to $27.2 billion.

INVENTORIES. Although the book value of inventories at
the end of November showed little change from October
at the total manufacturing level, a small increase in
the durable goods industries virtually offset a decline
in the nondurable sector. The increase in inventories
of durable goods manufacturers was $0.4 billion or 0.2
percent, half of which was attributable to defense
capital goods manufacturers. The decline in nondurable
goods manufacturers' inventories was caused mostly by
decreases in the foods, chemicals and petroleum
products industries.

The inventory to shipments ratio at the end of
November was 1.44. The ratio reached a high last year
in October of 1.76. With steady declines in inven-
tories the ratio dropped to a low of 1.48 in June.
Between June and October the ratio fluctuated around
1.48, before falling to this month's low of 1.44.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for December is scheduled for release on January
25, 1984 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on February
1, 1984 at 10:30 A.M.

PPreliminary. 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.

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.
