CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS


Manufacturers' Shipments,
/ O, 7 '1/ Inventories, and Orders



rr JUNE 1984
U.S. Department of Co M3-1(84)-6
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS For Wire Transmission 10:00 A.M. E.D.T. Wednesday, August 1,1984


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


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in June
decreased $2.7 billion or 1.4 percent to $191.0
billion. New orders have declined 2 of the last 3
months and-are now back to their February level. The
durable goods sector accounted for most of the June
decrease.

Shipments of manufactured goods in June increased
$0.9 billion or ,0.5 percent to $190.3 billion. An
increase of 1.3 percent in the durable goods sector was
partially offset by a decline of 0.4 percent in
shipments of nondurables.

The value of unfilled orders- held by manufacturers
increased $0.8 billion or 0.2 percent to $356.2
billion. This is the smallest 1-month gain since the
0.2 percent increase in March 1983.

Manufacturers' inventories increased $2.7 billion or
1.0 percent in June to $277.3 billion. This increase
brought the inventory to shipments ratio for June to
1.46. The ratio has been steadily rising since
reaching a low last December of 1.40.

NEW ORDERS. Most of the decline in the June new orders
came in the durable goods sector, where orders were
down $2.4 billion or 2.4 percent to $99.8 billion.
This revises upward the earlier reported 3.2 percent
decline. The largest decrease in June was in
electrical machinery, down $1.5 billion or 8.4 percent
to $16.1 billion. This category has shown large
fluctuations the last 3 months; May had an increase of
19.2 percent while April declined 12.9 percent.
Nonelectrical machinery orders in June were down $0.3
billion or 1.6 percent to $18.5 billion following an
11.4 percent increase in May. The only major industry
category showing an increase in new orders was
transportation equipment, up $0.3 billion or 1.2
percent to $24.1 billion; an increase in aircraft and
parts was partially offset by declines in motor
vehicles and shipbuilding.

New orders for nondurable goods declined $0.2
billion or 0.3 percent to $91.2 billion.

SHIPMENTS. Most of the 1.3 percent increase in durable
goods shipments in June reflected gains in the


machinery and transportation equipment categories.
Electrical machinery was up $0.5 billion or 3.3
percent, transportation equipment $0.4 billion or 1.6
percent, and nonelectrical machinery $0.2 billion or
1.3 percent.

The $0.4 billion or 0.4 percent decline in
nondurable shipments resulted from a combination of
small opposing changes, except in food products where
shipments fell $0.6 billion or 2.4 percent to $24.4
billion.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The largest increase in unfilled
orders in June was reported by machinery manufacturers,
up $1.1 billion or 0.8 percent increase over May; the
increase was split between the electrical and
nonelectrical categories. Primary metals producers
reported another sharp decline in unfilled orders. The
June decrease of $0.8 billion or 3.7 percent to $21.4
billion followed a May decline of 3.0 percent or $0.7
billion.

INVENTORIES. Increases in manufacturers' inventories
in June were widespread. Within the durable goods
sector which increased $1.7 billion or 0.9 percent to
$182.3 billion, most of the major industries increased
between 1 and 1-1/2 percent from May. In the
nondurable goods sector, which was up in total $1.0
billion or 1.1 percent to $95.0 billion, the chemical
industry accounted for most of the increase, going up
$0.9 billion or 4.1 percent to $21.7 billion.

Inventories have been expanding at an increased rate
since January, in particular work in process and
finished goods. Work in process inventories in June
were up 1.5 percent, and since January have averaged a
1.6 percent per month increase. Finished goods
inventories in June increased 1.7 percent, and since
January have averaged a 1.5 percent per month increase.
Materials and supplies inventories in June showed
little change, but since January have averaged a 0.7
percent increase per month.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for July is scheduled for release on August 22,
1984 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on August 30,
1984 at 10:00 A.M.
