SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in February
showed a small decline of $0.5 billion or 0.2 percent
to $193.5 billion. A decline in durable goods of 1.2
percent, revised down from the earlier reported 0.2
percent decline, more than offset an increase in
nondurables of 0.9 percent. New orders for defense
capital goods dropped $4.3 billion or 43.7 percent to
$5.5 billion. Excluding defense, manufacturers' orders
increased 2.1 percent.

Shipments of manufactured goods declined $0.7
billion or 0.4 percent to $192.0 billion, following a
1.4 percent decline in January. The last time back to
back monthly declines were reported was in October and
November 1982. The February decline resulted from a
decrease in durable goods more than offsetting an
increase in nondurables; in January the reverse pattern
caused the decline.

Unfilled orders at the end of February were up
$1.5 billion or 0.4 percent to $357.8 billion, matching
the 0.4 percent increase in January. The February
increase resulted from a large increase in office and
computing equipment; excluding that industry, unfilled
orders declined 0.6 percent.

Manufacturers' inventories increased $0.9 billion
or 0.3 percent to $285.7 billion; this is the first
increase in inventories since October. Nearly all the
February increase was in nondurables. The inventory to
shipments ratio was 1.49, up from 1.48 in January and
1.46 in December.

NEW ORDERS. Changes in durable goods new orders in
February were dominated by a few large offsetting
movements in the machinery and transportation equipment
industries. Large increases in office and computing
equipment and commercial aircraft were more than offset
by declines in defense communication equipment, defense
aircraft, and motor vehicles and parts. Nonelectrical
machinery, which includes computing equipment,
increased $5.3 billion or 35.1 percent to $20.4
billion; electrical machinery declined $3.3 billion or
18.2 percent to $15.0 billion. Transportation
equipment declined $1.3 billion or 4.9 percent to $26.0
billion; this industry declined 2 of the last 3 months
since reaching a high in November of $28.6 billion.
Primary metals were down $0.9 billion or 8.3 percent
offsetting, the 10.6 percent increase in January, and
continuing the volatile pattern of the last 10 months.


The largest increases in nondurables were in
foods, tobacco, and petroleum products; the only
significant decline was in printing and publishing.

SHIPMENTS. Shipments of durable goods in February
decreased $1.4 billion or 1.4 percent to $102.3
billion; declines were widespread. Transportation
equipment was down $0.6 billion or 2.1 percent to $27.4
billion; motor vehicles and parts were down $1.1
billion or 5.8 percent. Fabricated metals were down
$0.5 billion or 3.7 percent, and primary metals $0.2
billion or 1.8 percent. Both electrical and
nonelectrical machinery were up slightly.

Nondurable goods increased $0.7 billion or 0.8
percent to $89.9 billion, with foods, tobacco, and
petroleum products showing the largest increases.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Unfilled orders for capital goods, at
$266.1 billion at the end of February, account for
about three-fourths of all manufacturers' unfilled
orders of $357.8 billion. Nondefense capital goods
increased $3.2 billion or 2.4 percent to $134.4
billion, following 3 months of declines. The February
increase resulted from an 18.5 percent increase in
office and computing equipment. Without this industry,
nondefense declined. Defense unfilled orders declined
$1.3 billion or 1.0 percent to $131.7 billion,
following an increase last month of 2.5 percent.

Primary metals declined $0.2 billion or 1.3
percent in February to $19.2 billion, the ninth decline
in the last ten months.

INVENTORIES. Inventories of nondurable goods
manufacturers increased $0.8 billion or 0.8 percent to
$94.3 billion, following a 1.2 percent decline in
January. The largest February increases were in
printing and publishing, foods, petroleum, and rubber
and plastics.

Durable goods inventories showed little change
from January at $191.4 billion. The major industries
showed small offsetting increases and decreases.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for March is scheduled for release on April 23,
1985 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on April 30, 1985
at 10:00 A.M.
