SUMMARY. New orders.for manufactured goods in January
declined $1.7 billion or 0.9 percent to $192.2 billion.
This is the seventh decline in the last 10 months since
peaking at $196.5 billion last March. The decline was
caused by a drop in orders for nondurable goods of $3.6
billion or 3.9 percent to $88.3 billion, the lowest
figure since $88.1 billion of October 1983. Durable
goods orders increased in January $1.9 billion or 1.8
percent to $103.9 billion. This unusually large
revision to the earlier reported increase of 3.8
percent was caused by the inclusion of data received
from companies after the advance report was issued.

Shipments of manufactured goods decreased $3.4
billion or 1.7 percent to $192.1 billion, the largest
decline since October 1982. Nondurable shipments were
down $3.5 billion or 3.8 percent to $88.3 billion.
Shipments of durable goods were relatively flat at
$103.8 billion.

Unfilled orders at the end of January were also
flat at $355.3 billion; an increase in defense orders
of $3.0 billion offset declines in other categories,
mainly nondefense capital goods, totaling $2.9 billion.

Manufacturers' inventories at the end of January
were down $0.5 billion or 0.2 percent to $284.9
billion, the third straight monthly decline. Between
January 1984 and August 1984 inventories increased at
more than 1. percent per month. In September and
October the increase slowed to 0.6 percent and 0.4
percent. The inventory to shipments ratio in January
was 1.48, up from the December revised ratio of 1.46.

NEW ORDERS. New orders for nondurable goods declined
3.9 percent in January, as a result of declines in
virtually every category. Durable goods orders
increased 1.8 percent, mostly due to the primary metals
and electrical machinery industries. Primary metals
were up $1.3 billion or 12.5 percent to $11.3 billion,
following a 7.2 percent decline in December.
Electrical machinery increased $2.1 billion, primarily
in defense communication equipment and electronic
components. Nonelectrical machinery declined $1.4
billion or 8.8 percent to $14.9 billion. Decreases
were widespread; only office and computing equipment
and machine shops showed small increases.

SHIPMENTS. Nondurable goods shipments were down 3.8
percent, reflecting declines in all major industries,
although nearly half or $1.5 billion was in petroleum
products. Food products were down $0.5 billion,
chemicals $0.4 billion, and tobacco, textiles, apparel
and paper each down about $0.2 billion.


Durable goods showed little change in January,
with large offsetting changes. Transportation
equipment was up $2.2 billion or 8.5 percent to $28.3
billion due to a 15.7 percent increase in motor
vehicles; aircraft and shipbuilding were both down.
Primary metals and fabricated metals were each up $0.4
billion, but electrical and nonelectrical machinery
showed large declines, down $1.4 billion or 8.0 percent
and $1.3 billion or 7.3 percent respectively.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Although total unfilled orders in
January showed little change from December, primary
metals showed their largest increase since January a
year ago, going up $0.6 billion or 3.2 percent to $19.5
billion. Electrical machinery was up $2.0 billion or
2.6 percent, nearly all of which was in the defense
communication equipment category. Nonelectrical
machinery and transportation equipment had the largest
declines, down $1.7 billion or 2.8 percent and $0.8
billion or 0.5 percent respectively.

For the capital goods industries as a group,
defense increased $3.0 billion or 2.3 percent to $132.7
billion. Nondefense declined $2.6 billion or 1.9
percent to $131.1 billion. Defense orders now exceed
those held for nondefense and make up 37 percent of all
unfilled orders held by manufacturers.

INVENTORIES. The inventory declines of the last three
months have occurred in nondurable goods, although
increases in durable goods have slowed significantly.
Declines in both durable and nondurable industries were
widespread. However, the capital goods industries as a
group showed a sizable increase of $1.5 billion or 1.6
percent; nondefense accounted for $0.8 billion and
defense $0.7 billion.

Inventories by stage of fabrication showed little
change at the total levels, but there were changes in
mix. Durable goods materials and supplies decreased
0.7 percent; finished goods increased 1.3 percent;
nondurable materials and supplies increased 0.6
percent; and finished goods decreased 2.7 percent.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for February is scheduled for release on March
22, 1985 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on April 1,
