CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS


.< Manufacturers' Shipments,

Inventories, and Orders

August 1985

U.S. Department of Commerce M3-1(85)-8
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS For Wire Transmission 10:00a.m.E.D.T. Wednesday, October 2

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


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in August
increased $1.7 billion or 0.9 percent from July to $197.5
billion. An increase in durable goods of 2.6 percent was
partially offset by a decline in nondurables of 1.1 percent.
The durable goods increase was a downward revision from the
earlier reported 3.4 percent increase.

Shipments of manufactured goods increased $2.1 billion
or 1.1 percent to $195.9 billion; this is the largest 1
month increase since March. Durable goods increased 2.7
percent while nondurables declined 0.8 percent.

Unfilled orders increased $1.6 billion or 0.5 percent
to $363.1 billion, as a result of an increase in defense
capital goods. Excluding defense, unfilled orders declined
0.5 percent.

Inventories at the end of August were $284.6 billion,
down $0.5 billion or 0.2 percent from July, the third
decline in the last 4 months. Prior to May, inventories had
been flat at $286 billion since October. The inventory to
shipments ratio for August was 1.45 down from 1.47 in July
and June.

NEW ORDERS. New orders for durable goods in August
increased $2.7 billion or 2.6 percent to $107.0 billion.
Transportation equipment accounted for most of the increase,
up $2.8 billion or 10.6 percent to $29.6 billion; the
aircraft and automotive industries were each up $1.7
billion. Other increases were in fabricated metals
products, up $0.4 billion or 3.1 percent, primary metals, up
$0.3 billion or 2.6 percent, and nonelectrical machinery, up
$0.1 billion or 0.7 percent. The largest declines were in
electrical machinery, down $0.4 billion or 2.9 percent and
instruments, down $0.4 billion or 7.2 percent.

Most of the 1.1 percent decline in new orders for
nondurable goods was in the food ndu=tr, although
most of the other industries alslnrdnw T


SHIPMENTS. Increases in shipments by durable goods
manufacturers' were widespread. Transportation equipment
was up $1.9 billion or 7.7 percent to $26.9 billion; two-
thirds of the increase was in the motor vehicle and parts
industry, up $1.3 billion or 8.2 percent to $17.1 billion.
Electrical machinery was up $0.6 billion or 3.7 percent and
primary metals $0.4 billion or 3.4 percent.

The decline in nondurable goods shipments of $0.7
billion or 0.8 percent to $90.6 billion was concentrated in
the food products industry, down $0.9 billion or 3.5 percent
to $24.0 billion. All the remaining industries showed
smaller declines except for tobacco products, apparel and
petroleum products which increased; this was the first
increase in petroleum shipments since April.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Unfilled orders for durable goods
increased in August $1.8 billion or 0.5 percent to $352.9
billion. Two major industries accounted for the increase;
transportation equipment was up $2.7 billion or 1.8 percent
to $152.8 billion, mostly due to orders for defense aircraft
and parts; nonelectrical machinery was up $0.3 billion or
0.5 percent to $62.2 billion, mostly due to office and
computing equipment. Declines were recorded in the other
industries, the largest coming in electrical machinery, down
$0.8 billion or 1.0 percent to $81.4 billion.

INVENTORIES. Inventories of durable goods declined $0.4
billion or 0.2 percent to $191.8 billion. Small declines
were recorded in all industries except transportation
equipment and fabricated metals. Transportation equipment
increased $0.3 billion or 0.7 percent to $49.2 billion;
excluding the defense components, there was no change.
Inventories of nondurable goods were relatively unchanged
from July at $92.8 billion, resulting from offsetting
increases and decreases in the particular industries.

Inventories by stage of fabrication were also down
slightly; materials and supplies and work in process were
each down 0.2 percent, and finished goods down 0.1 percent.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for September is scheduled for release on October 23,
1985 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on October 31, 1985 at
10:00 A.M.
