CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS

manufacturers' Shipments,

S Inventories, and Orders


AUGUST 1981
SM3-1 (81 )-8
For Wire Transmission 3:00 P.M. E.D.T. Thursday, October 1, 1981


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


New orders for manufactured goods decreased in August
$3.2 billion or 1.9 percent to $169.2 billion, the Department
of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today. This is
the first decline in orders at the all manufacturing level since
the 0.9 percent decline in January. The order increases from
February through June were all less than 1 percent.
New orders for durable goods declined $3.1 billion or 3.5
percent in August to $86.3 billion, revised from the earlier
reported 2.5 percent decline. The nondurable goods industries
showed almost no change from July. The largest declines in
durable goods new orders were reported by aircraft, primary
metals, and fabricated metals producers. In the aircraft industry,
where new orders are volatile on a month-to-month basis, new
orders were down $0.9 billion or 14.4 percent to $5.2 billion.
New orders for aircraft so far this year have averaged $5.2
billion per month as compared to a $5.8 billion average for
January through August of 1980.
The decline in August new orders for fabricated metal
products was estimated at $1.0 billion, down 9.0 percent from
July to $9.8 billion. This is the largest decrease in that category
since a 9.0 percent decline in March 1980. In the primary metals
category, both steel and nonferrous metal manufacturers re-
ported declines. New orders for steel were down $0.4 billion
or 5.8 percent to $6.1 billion, while orders for nonferrous
products were off $0.3 billion or 6.9 percent to $4.5 billion.
New orders for nondefense capital goods were valued at
$24.2 billion, unchanged from July. A 6.8 percent increase in
the nonelectrical machinery component was offset by declines
in most of the other categories. New orders of defense capital
goods increased $0.3 billion or 6.3 percent to $5.8 billion, with
all components except complete aircraft increasing.
Shipments of manufactured goods in August declined $1.4
billion or 0.8 percent to $168.7 billion, following an equal
decline in July of $1.4 billion or 0.8 percent. The August de-
clines were widespread. Within the durable goods sector, most
of the industries showed declines of $0.1 billion to $0.2 billion
each. The only significant increase in durable goods shipments


occurred in the aircraft industry, where deliveries were up $0.4
billion or 8.4 percent to $4.8 billion.
Shipments of nondurable goods, valued at $82.8 billion,
were off $0.2 billion or 0.2 percent from July. An increase in
petroleum shipments of $0.7 billion or 4.1 percent was offset
by declines in nearly all of the other categories. Excluding the
petroleum industry, nondurable goods shipments were down
1.2 percent.
The backlog of orders for manufactured goods in August
increased $0.5 billion or 0.2 percent to $328.7 billion. The
pattern of change throughout the industries was mixed. In-
creases in the orders backlog for transportation equipment and
machinery of $1.1 billion and $0.5 billion, respectively, were
partially offset by declines in the primary metals order backlog
of $0.3 billion and the fabricated metals backlog of $0.6 billion.
The backlog of defense orders increased $1.4 billion or 1.9 per-
cent to $77.4 billion.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories in August in-
creased $0.8 billion or 0.3 percent to $272.6 billion. The primary
-and fabricated metal products industries reported much larger
increases, going up 1.9 percent and 1.3 percent, respectively.
Significant declines in inventories occurred in the motor vehicle
and parts industry, down $0.3 billion or 3.5 percent to $9.1
billion, and the petroleum industry, down $0.5 billion or 4.7
percent also to $9.1 billion. The change in the inventory value
by stage of fabrication showed raw materials and supplies de-
clining 0.8 percent, work in process increasing 0.6 percent, and
finished goods increasing 1.2 percent. The inventory to ship-
ments ratio for manufactures in August was 1.62, up from 1.60
in July.
The figures on the durable goods industries in this report
supersede those issued earlier in the advance report on durable
goods. The present report is based on more complete reporting,
but the estimates are also considered preliminary. Final figures
will appear as historical data in the report to be published for
next month. The advance report on durable goods for Septem-
ber is scheduled for release on October 22, 1981, and the full
report is scheduled for release on November 2, 1981.

DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY

The Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders
Survey provides broad-based monthly statistical data on eco-
nomic conditions in the domestic manufacturing sector. It is
designed to measure current industrial activity and to provide
an indication of future trends. The data are used extensively
by the executive branch of the Government in developing eco-
nomic, fiscal, and monetary policy; by the Bureau of Economic
Analysis (BEA) as components of the gross national product
estimates; and by trade associations, corporate economists, and
other members of the business community as an analytical tool
in their assessment of the current and future economic condition
of the country.
The M3 shipments and inventory data are comparable to the
totals published in the Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM).
The ASM is a sample survey of approximately 70,000 manu-
facturing establishments drawn from a 5-year census of manu-
factures universe of about 350,000 manufacturing establish-
ments. In the ASM, each manufacturing location reports data
on value of shipments, beginning and end-of-year inventories,
as well as various other economic variables.
The monthly M3 estimates through 1980 are based on
information obtained from approximately 4,500 reporting units
and include most manufacturing companies with 1,000 or more
employees. In addition, selected smaller companies are included
to strengthen the sample coverage in individual industry cate-
gories. For firms which operate in a single M3 industry category,
the reporting unit typically comprises all operations of the
company. At the request of the Census Bureau, most large,
diversified companies file separate reports for divisions which
operate in different industrial areas.
Each company or reporting unit of a company in the survey
is classified into 1 of 79 industry categories for which separate
estimates are made based on the major activity of the reporting
unit. Some reporting units include industry activities outside
the M3 category in which they are classified. The survey
methodology assumes that the month-to-month changes of the
reporting units classified in each industry category effectively
represent the month-to-month movements of the establishments
in the SIC industries which make up the category.
The M3 series is periodically benchmarked to the Census of
Manufactures and the ASM for shipments and inventories. The
most recent benchmark included data for 1977 and 1978. Since
benchmark data for unfilled orders are not avadable. levels are
based upon the ratio of unfilled orders to shipments of report-
ing companies. In the 1977-1978 benchmark report, unfilled
orders levels were revalued based on unfilled orders to ship-
ments ratios of reporting companies in the monthly M3 survey;
the MA-300, a one-time annual supplemental survey of multi-
establishment companies; and the ASM for single-establishment
companies.

MONTHLY ESTIMATING PROCEDURE

The monthly estimates of shipments, unfilled orders, and
total inventories are derived for each industry category by


multiplying the industry estimate for the previous month by
the percentage change from the previous month for companies
reporting in the current month.
Though collected as a separate item, new orders are not
calculated according to the standard ratio-estimate procedure.
The reason for this is that not all companies report new orders
and some that do report this item limit their reporting to
specific products for which long lead times are required in the
production cycle. These companies, in effect, exclude new
orders received for products that are shipped from inventory.
New orders are, therefore, computed by adjusting the current
month's shipments by the change in the backlog of unfilled
orders. (New orders equal current month shipments plus cur-
rent month unfilled orders minus prior month unfilled orders.)
Thus, the estimate of new orders includes orders that are re-
ceived and filled in the same month as well as new orders that
have not yet been filled. Also included are the effects of can-
cellations and modifications on previously reported orders.

SEASONAL ADJUSTMENT

The monthly data on shipments, inventories, and unfilled
orders are adjusted for seasonality at the most detailed level
tabulated in the survey, using the X-11 variant of the Census
Bureau's seasonal adjustment program. Data from January 1958
through December 1980 are included in the calculations of the
factors used in this publication.
Seasonally adjusted industry aggregates are derived by adding
seasonally adjusted components rather than by direct seasonal
adjustment of the aggregates. New orders data are not inde-
pendently seasonally adjusted but are derived at the most de-
tailed levels from the seasonally adjusted shipments and the
change in the seasonally adjusted unfilled orders and then
similarly aggregated.

EXPLANATION OF TERMS
Value of Shipments-The shipments estimates published in
the monthly survey are equivalent to value of shipments as re-
ported in the ASM which are net selling values, f.o.b. plant,
after discounts and allowances and excluding freight charges
and excise taxes. Included in shipments is the value of all prod-
ucts sold, transferred to other plants of the same company, or
shipped on consignment.
Shipments also include receipts for contract work performed
for others, resales, receipts for miscellaneous activities such as
the sale of scrap and refuse; value of installation and repair work
performed by employees of the plant; and value of research and
development performed at the plant. In the shipbuilding in-
dustry, the value of shipments in a given time period varies
considerably from the value of work done because of the long
lead time between the input of the materials and labor and the
delivery of the completed ship. For this industry and for aircraft
and missile producers working under cost-plus contracts, the
value of work done during the year is requested rather than the
value of shipments.
The value of shipments figures developed from the ASM
contain duplication at the all manufacturing and M3 industry








category levels since the products of some four-digit SIC indus-
tries are used as materials by other industries within the same
industry aggregate. The significance of the duplication within
the specific M3 industry categories varies depending on their
four-digit industry composition. It is most pronounced in a
few highly integrated industry areas, such as primary metals
and motor vehicles and parts.
For multiunit companies, the M3 reports received each
month typically are not plant reports but are company or divi-
sional level reports that encompass groups of plants. The actual
sales reported are usually net sales and receipts from customers
and exclude the duplication of interplant transfers. The reported
sales are used to calculate month-to-month changes which bring
forward the plant-based shipments for the industry category
as estimated in the ASM.

Inventories-In the monthly survey and in the ASM, respond-
ents are asked to report their inventories at book values. Since
different methods of inventory valuation are used (LIFO, FIFO,
etc.), the definition of the value of aggregate inventories for all
plants in an industry is not precise.
There are also some inconsistencies between the M3 com-
pany or divisional reported inventory levels as compared with
the ASM establishment reported levels. The change in the value
of inventories, month-to-month as well as year-to-year, is con-
sidered to have greater significance and reliability.


Inventory data are requested from respondents by stage of
fabrication, i.e., finished goods, work in process, and raw
materials and supplies. However, the quality of these data is
limited due to lower response rates and the inclusion of the
same type of inventory under different stages of fabrication
in the aggregate statistics.

New Orders Received and Unfilled Orders-Orders as re-
ported in the monthly survey are net of cancellations received
during the month on orders previously reported. They include
orders received and filled during the month as well as orders
received for future delivery. They also include the net sales
value of contract changes which increase or decrease the sales
value of the unfilled orders to which they relate. Orders are
defined to include only those supported by binding legal docu-
ments such as signed contracts, letters of award, or letters of
intent, although in some industries this definition may not be
strictly applicable. In the case of letters of intent, the full
amount of the sales value is included if the parties are in sub-
stantial agreement on the amount; otherwise, only the funds
specifically authorized to be expended are included.
Unfilled orders include orders as defined above that have
not been reflected as shipments. Generally, unfilled orders at
the end of the reporting period are equal to unfilled orders
at the beginning of the period plus net new orders received
less net shipments.
