`n July 1986

U.S. Department of Commerce M3-1(86)-7
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS For Wire Transmission 10:00 a.m. E.D.T. Tuesday, September 2, 1986

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


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in July
increased $4.2 billion or 2.2 percent to $196.0 billion.
Since reaching a high last December of $201.2 billion,
orders had been generally declining, dropping to $191.8
billion in June. The July orders increase was concentrated
in the durable goods sector which increased 4.1 percent; the
nondurable goods sector showed no change from June.

Shipments of manufactured goods in July increased $0.8
billion or 0.4 percent to $194.4 billion, following a 0.3
percent increase in June. Prior to that, shipments declined
from a high in November of $200.1 billion to $193.1 billion
in May.
Unfilled orders in July increased $1.6 billion or 0.4
percent to $366.2 billion, following 3 consecutive monthly
declines. Manufacturers' inventories remained unchanged for
the second month in a row at $278.3 billion, following a
14-month downward trend. The small increase in shipments
was enough to lower slightly the inventory to shipments
ratio from 1.44 in June to 1.43 in July.

NEW ORDERS. The increase in orders for durable goods in
July of $4.2 billion or 4.1 percent to $106.9 billion
included an increase in defense capital goods orders of $3.2
billion. Excluding defense, the durable goods increase was
1.0 percent.

Orders for transportation equipment increased $5.2
billion or 21.9 percent to $28.7 billion. The aircraft and
parts industry accounted for over 80 percent of the
increase, as defense and nondefense orders were up.
Nonelectrical machinery, fabricated metal products, and
instruments and related products also were up. The largest
decline in the durable goods sector was in electrical
machinery, down $0.9 billion or 5.3 percent to $17.0
billion, following a 22.3 percent increase in June.

SHIPMENTS. Shipments of durable goods in July increased
$0.9 billion or 0.9 percent to $105.5 billion. The largest


increase was in transportation equipment, up $1.5 billion or
5.8 percent to $27.4 billion; aircraft and parts were up
$0.9 billion and motor vehicles and parts $0.4 billion.
Both primary metals and fabricated metals also had increases
in July. Both electrical and none-lectrical machinery
shipments declined in July, nonelectrical down $0.4 billion
or 2.5 percent to $17.1 billion and electrical down $0.2
billion or 1.3 percent to $16.1 billion.
Nondurable goods shipments showed a slight decline in
July of $0.1 billion to $89.0 billion. Large offsetting
movements occurred in several industries. Food products
increased $0.9 billion or 3.7 percent to $26.4 billion, and
chemicals were up $0.6 billion or 3.2 percent to $17.9
billion; petroleum products were down $0.5 billion or 4.4
percent to $10.8 billion and tobacco products $0.6 billion
or 29.9 percent to $1.5 billion.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The increase in unfilled orders in July of
0.4 percent was due mostly to an increase in defense orders
for both aircraft and ships and tanks. Transportation
equipment in total was up $1.3 billion or 0.8 percent to
$159.8 billion. The orders backlog for electrical machinery
increased $0.9 billion or 1.0 percent to $85.1 billion. The
largest decline in unfilled orders was in primary metals,
down $0.6 billion or 2.9 percent to $18.4 billion.

INVENTORIES. Durable goods inventories in July decreased
$0.5 billion or 0.3 percent to $186.7 billion, offsetting a
$0.4 billion or 0.4 percent increase in nondurable goods to
$91.6 billion. Inventories by stage of fabrication showed
increases in finished goods and decreases in work in process
for both the durable and nondurable goods sectors. An
increase in materials and supplies in nondurables was offset
by a decline in durables.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for August is release on September 23,
1986 at 8:30 a.m. tBfi t on October 1, 1986 at
