S(AII figures in~

SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in May
increased $3.5 billion or 1.9 percent to $193.2
billion, following a 3.4 percent decline in April. The
durable goods sector caused the May increase as the
nondurable goods sector showed a slight decline.
Shipments of manufactured goods increased $1.9
billion or 1.0 percent in May to $189.2 billion. Here
too the durable goods sector accounted for the increase
as the nondurable goods sector showed a 0.4 percent
decline.


Unfilled orders in May increased $4.1 billion
percent to $355.2 billion. There has been a
upward trend in unfilled orders this year as new
continue to exceed shipments.

Manufacturers' inventories in May increased $4.1
billion or 1.5 percent to $274.5 billion. This is the
fourth consecutive monthly increase in excess of 1.0
percent and the largest one month gain since a 1.6
percent increase in April 1980. The durable goods
sector went up $2.4 billion for a 1.3 percent increase
while the nondurable goods sector was up $1.7 billion
for a 1.9 percent increase. The inventory to shipments
ratio at 1.45 in May has been generally increasing
since December when it reached a low of 1.40.
NEW ORDERS. The increase in new orders in May was
caused by the $3.7 billion or 3.8 percent increase in
durable goods orders. This is the largest one month
increase in durable goods since the 7.4 percent gain in
June 1983. The May increase was concentrated in the
machinery industries, which had shown a 10.2 percent
decline in the prior month. Electrical machinery was
up $2.8 billion or 18.8 percent to $17.5 billion with
over half the increase coming in the communication
equipment category. Nonelectrical machinery was up
$2.0 billion or 11.8 percent to $18.9 billion; although
increases were widespread the largest was in office and
computing equipment.
Primary metals orders were down $1.2 billion or 10.4
percent to $10.6 billion. This is the fifth decline in
the last 6 months and the largest one month decline
since the 14.1 percent drop in March of 1983. Both the
steel and the nonferrous metals industries caused this
month's decline. Transportation orders were down in
May 1.1 billion or 4.3 percent to $23.5 billion,
following a 13.8 percent decline in April. In both
months the declines were caused by the aircraft and
parts industry. The nondurable goods sector showed a
$0.2 billion or 0.2 percent decline in May to $91.2
billion.
SHIPMENTS. Shipments of durable goods in May increased
$2.2 billion or 2.3 percent to $97.9 billion. This is

the largest increase since December when shipments were
up 4.4 percent. Most of the major industries increased
in May with machinery showing the largest gain; both
the electrical and nonelectrical categories contributed
to a $1.3 billion or 4.2 percent increase to $32.7
billion, more than offsetting last month's decline of
2.4 percent. Primary metals shipments were up in May
$0.2 billion or 2.0 percent to $11.4 billion while
transportation increased $0.3 billion or 1.3 percent to
$23.1 billion.

Shipments of nondurable goods in May decreased $0.4
billion or 0.4 percent to $91.2 billion. The largest
declines were in petroleum and foods, down 3.5 percent
and 1.5 percent respectively. These declines offset
increases in most of the other categories.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Unfilled orders for durable goods in
May increased $4.1 billion or 1.2 percent to $344.4
billion. Machinery accounted for most of the increase
going up $3.7 billion or 2.7 percent to $140.1 billion.
The machinery category has increased an average of over
$2.0 billion per month since the beginning of the year.
Transportation showed a $0.3 billion or 0.2 percent
increase in May.

Unfilled orders for primary metals declined $0.8
billion or 3.3 percent to $22.1 billion, the largest
decrease since a 3.8 percent drop in October 1982.
This industry had generally been increasing since
reaching a low in December 1982 of $15.1 billion, but
has now declined two of the last three months.

The average rate of increase in manufacturers'
unfilled orders this year is 1.5 percent per month as
compared to the average 1.0 percent per month gains in
1983. The increased rate results from netting the
continued strength in new orders against the slowing
rates of increase in shipments.
INVENTORIES. Manufacturers of both durable and
nondurable goods continued to increase their
inventories in May, durable goods increasing $2.4
billion or 1.3 percent to $180.4 billion and nondurable
goods up $1.7 billion or 1.9 percent to $94.1 billion.
SThe total inventory increase reflected expansion in all
three stages of fabrication. Raw material inventories
increased 1.6 percent to $91.5 billion, work in process
1.5 percent to $97.8 billion and finished goods 1.4 per-
cent to $85.3 billion.
SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for June is scheduled for release on July 24,
1984 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on August 1, 1984
at 10:00 A.M.
