U.S. Departme M3-1-88-6
BUREAU OF THE For Wire Transmission 10:00 a. m. E.D.T. Tuesday, August 2, 1988

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


Summary
New orders for manufactured goods in June increased
$12.0 billion or 5.5 percent from May to $229.8 billion.
The durable goods sector accounted for most of the June
gain, increasing $10.8 billion or 9.4 percent to $125.9
billion, revising the earlier reported 8.8 percent increase.
Both defense shipbuilding and defense and nondefense
aircraft and parts were up sharply. Orders for nondurable
goods in June increased $1.2 billion or 1.2 percent to
$103.9 billion.
Shipments of manufactured goods in June increased $3.2
billion or 1.5 percent to $220.6 billion. Over half of the
increase was in the durables sector, up $1.9 billion or 1.6
percent to $116.6 billion. Shipments of nondurable goods
were up $1.3 billion or 1.2 percent to $104.0 billion.
Unfilled orders in June increased $9.2 billion or 2.2
percent to $428.1 billion, the largest one-month increase
since the 2.8 percent increase in March 1984. The value of
manufacturers' inventories in June increased $1.5 billion or
0.4 percent to $344.8 billion, following a 0.7 percent
increase in May. Inventories have been growing steadily
since March 1987 when they were valued at $320.0 billion.
The inventory to shipments ratio for June was 1.56, down
from 1.58 in May.
New Orders
The increase in durable goods orders in June of 9.4
percent was the largest since the 10.9 percent gain in
December 1982. The increase in June orders was concentrated
in the transportation equipment industry, up $10.1 billion
or 35.9 percent to $38.2 billion. Aircraft and parts
increased $5.2 billion to $12.9 billion and shipbuilding and
tanks $4.6 billion to $5.2 billion.
The increase in nondurable goods new orders of 1.2
percent was concentrated in the foods, apparel, paper, and
petroleum product industries.


Shipments
The 1.6 percent increase in shipments of durable goods
reflected widespread gains; the largest were in
transportation equipment and nonelectrical machinery.
Transportation equipment increased $0.6 billion or 2.1
percent to $29.7 billion; the aircraft and motor vehicles
industries accounted for most of the gain.
Nonelectrical machinery increased $0.6 billion or 2.8-
percent to $20.6 billion, with the largest gain in office
and computing equipment. The largest decline in shipments
was in electrical machinery, down $0.3 billion or 1.4
percent to $19.9 billion.
Over half of the increase in nondurable goods shipments
of 1.2 percent was in the foods industry, up $0.7 billion or
2.4 percent to $30.6 billion. Apparel, paper and petroleum
products were also up.
Unfilled Orders
The 2.2 percent increase in unfilled orders of
manufacturers resulted mostly from the large increase in
transportation equipment of $8.5 billion or 4.5 percent to
$196.9 billion. The orders backlog for nonelectrical
machinery increased $0.9 billion or 1.5 percent to $60.7
billion.
The orders backlog for nondurable goods declined $0.1
billion or 0.6 percent to $13.4 billion.
Inventories
Both the durable and nondurable goods sectors had
inventory increases. Durables were up $0.8 billion or 0.4
percent to $224.3 billion and nondurables $0.7 billion or
0.6 percent to $120.4 billion.
The increase in inventories in June was mostly in
materials and supplies, up 0.7 percent, and finished goods
up 0.6 percent; work in process was virtually flat.

goods for July 1988 is scheduled for August 23, 1988 at 8:30

Revised historical data for Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders
January 1982 April 1988, will be issued August 22, 1988. Revisions will
reflect:

Corrections to monthly data to include data received too late to include
in the monthly publications, reclassifications of reports based on
improved industry information, and corrections received from companies
to their historical data.

Inclusion of benchmark data for:

shipments and inventories from the 1986 Annual Survey of Manufacturers.
unfilled orders from the 1986 MA-300 Unfilled Orders Supplement.
shipments from the 1986 MA-175, Report on Shipments to Federal
Government agencies.
recalculation of new orders estimates using the revised shipments and
unfilled orders data.
recalculation of the seasonally adjusted data using information through
the May Manufactures' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) report.

Concurrent seasonal adjustment of the current and prior nonth data will
continue. However, the practice of revising one year ago seasonally adjusted
data will be discontinued. Also, additional series may be seasonally
adjusted at that time.

Any questions regarding this announcement can be answered by calling Ruth Runyan
on (301) 763-2502.
