CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS

Manufacturers' Shipments,

1v Inventories, and Orders


JUNE 1977
U.S. Department of Commerce For Release August 2, 1977 2:00 P.M.
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS Series: M3-1(77)-6

All figures in text below are in seasonally adjusted current dollars.


New orders for manufactured products in June rose $0.4
billion to $112.1 billion the Department of Commerce, Bureau
of the Census reported today. Following a $1.6 billion or 1.4
percent decline in April and a $0.2 billion decrease in May,
shipments of manufactured products rose $1.5 billion or 1
percent to $111.0 billion in June. Inventories held by manu-
facturers rose from $172.6 billion at the end of May to $173.5
billion at the end of June, for an increase of $0.9 billion.
New orders for durable goods declined by $0.4 billion or
1 percent. New orders for primary metals fell by $1.0 billion
or 11 percent to $8.1 billion, entirely due to a $1.1 billion
decline in orders for steel mill products. The June decline
followed a sharp May increase in new orders for steel mill
products: $1.2 billion or 30 percent to $5.1 billion. Another
significant decrease, $1.2 billion or 36 percent, occurred in the
defense capital goods industries. This series, composed of the
defense portions of the machinery and transportation equip-
ment industries rose in April by 62 percent or $1.4 billion and
fell in May by 8 percent or $0.3 billion. New orders for motor
vehicles and parts rose $0.7 billion or 8 percent and orders for
aircraft and parts rose $0.4 billion or 12 percent. New orders
for nondefense capital goods rose $0.7. billion or 5 percent to
$15.7 billion.
Shipments of durable goods rose $1.0 billion or 2 percent in
June to $57.7 billion. The largest portion of this increase was in
the motor vehicles and parts industry where shipments rose
$0.7 billion or 8 percent. Shipments of steel mill products
rose $0.2 billion or 5 percent and shipments of electrical ma-
chinery rose $0.2 billion or 3 percent. Declines were reported
in the aircraft and parts industry ($0.2 billion or 7 percent) and
in the nonelectrical machinery industries ($0.3 billion or 3
percent). Shipments of defense capital goods declined $0.1
billion or 5 percent and shipments of nondefense capital goods
declined $0.3 billion or 2 percent.
Shipments of nondurable goods rose $0.6 billion or 1 percent.
A $0.7 billion or 4 percent rise in shipments of foods con-
tributed the largest amount to the increase. Chemical shipments
rose by $0.3 billion or 3 percent to $9.7 billion while shipments
of petroleum products fell by $0.2 billion or 2 percent.
Inventories held by durable goods producers rose by $1.0
billion or 1 percent and accounted for virtually all of the rise
in manufacturing inventories. Several industries reported sig-
nificant increases including motor vehicles and parts ($0.2
billion or 3 percent), electrical machinery ($0.2 billion or 2
percent) and nonelectrical machinery producers ($0.2 billion
or 1 percent). About half of the durable goods inventory rise,
$0.4 billion, was in the work-in-process portion of the inven-
tories.


Nondurable goods producers held $63.4 billion in inventories
at the end of June, compared with $63.5 billion at the end of
May. Inventories held by food producers declined by 3 percent
or $0.4 billion to $16.4 billion and offset the relatively small
increases in the other nondurable goods industries. Over two-
thirds of the decrease in foods was in inventories of materials
and supplies.
Based on the preliminary figures in this report, shipments
of manufactured products in the second quarter of 1977 were
$330.1 billion, $9.1 billion or 2.8 percent above the $320.9
billion in shipments for the first quarter of 1977. Durable
shipments increased in the second quarter by $4.3 billion or
2.6 percent and nondurable shipments increased by $4.9 billion
or 3.2 percent. New orders for durable goods received during
the second quarter were 4.3 percent above orders in the first
quarter. Inventories for all manufacturing industries at the end
of the second quarter were 2.4 percent above first quarter
inventories.
S 4 ATES
The figures r e durable goo stories in this report
supersede th ed earlier in the a report on durable
goods. The s, report is based on complete reporting,
but the esti are also considered p nary. Final figures

changes.


NOTICE
The appendix tables of this report include the revised data
published in the Advance Report on Durable Goods as well as
revised data for series not normally published as part of the
Advance Report. These revisions were necessary to correct
for errors in the calculation of the seasonal factors used to
adjust the shipments and new orders data for several series.
Revisions were also made to the unadjusted and seasonally
adjusted series on office and store machines to reflect data
changes reported to the Bureau of the Census. The data in the
appendix tables begin in October 1976 and are comparable to
the data from 1958 through September 1976 previously
published.

*During 1968 manufacturers in ordance, communications, aircraft and aircraft parts, and shipbuilding industries began to provide aggre-
gate figures on shipments, orders, and total inventories of work performed for the Department of Defense. The results of these reports are
included in these new defense series. Preliminary. revised. Shipments and new orders adjusted for trading-day and calendar-
month variations; unfilled orders and inventories as of end of month. The supplementary series are regroupings of the separate industry
categories as follows:

Household durable goods industries Household furniture; kitchen articles and pottery; cutlery, handtools, and hardware; household
appliances; ophthalmic goods, watches, clocks, and watchcases;and miscellaneous personal goods.
Capital goods industries The capital goods industries series is comparable to the previous Producers' Capital Goods and the Defense
Products (old sereis) categories.
Nondefense industries Machinery, except electrical (excluding farm machinery and equipment and machine shops), electrical machinery
(excluding household appliances, radio and TV and electronic components), railroad equipment and the nondefense portions of ship-
building and military tank vehicles, communication equipment, aircraft, aircraft parts and ordnance.
Defense products (new series) Based on separate reports on defense work filed by large defense contractors in the following
industries: ordnance, communication equipment, complete aircraft, aircraft parts, and shipbuilding and military tank vehicles.
The data are comparable to those published annually in the MA-175, Shipments of Defense-Oriented Industries, for the specified
industries.
