SInventories, and Orders


Y E\ ( APRIL 1982
U.S. Department of Commerce\ M3-1 (82)-4
BURE AU OF THE CENSUS A For Wire Transmission 3 00P.M. E.D.T. Wednesday, June 2, 1982

(All figures~T. ext l ow are in seasonally adjusted current dollars )


New orders for manufactured goods in April declined $3.6
billion or 2.3 percent to $155.3 billion the Department of
Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today. New orders
had been generally declining since last July, but in February
showed a 1.3 percent, increase and in March a 0.3 percent
increase. Shipments of manufactured goods decreased $0.8
billion or 0.5 percent in April to $157.4 billion. Shipments
have declined every month since last June except for a 1.8
percent increase in February. The book value of manufacturers'
inventories decreased $0.8 billion or 0.3 percent to $274.2
billion, the fourth decline in the last 5 months.
The decline in manufacturers' orders in April was concen-
trated in the capital goods sector. Orders for defense capital
goods were down $1.9 billion or 24 percent to $6.0 billion.
Despite this decrease and the March decline of 8.6 percent,
defense orders still remained at a relatively high level, over
50 percent above April a year ago. New orders for nondefense
capital goods were down $1.1 billion or 5.1 percent to $20.9
billion, following a 7.9 percent increase in March.
Within the major industry groups, most of the durable goods
categories showed new order declines in April. Orders for trans-
portation equipment were down $1.4 billion or 7.0 percent to
$18.1 billion. New orders for the aircraft and parts industry
dropped $3.0 billion or 39 percent to $4.7 billion, more than
offsetting an increase in the motor vehicle industry of $1.2
billion. New orders for electrical machinery decreased $0.4
billion or 3.3 percent to $12.4 billion while nonelectrical
machinery orders were flat. New orders for primary metals
registered the first monthly increase since last July. April
orders were valued at $8.1 billion, up $0.3 billion or 4.4 percent
from March. Virtually all of the increase was attributed to the
nonferrous metal producers.
Most of the declines in manufacturers shipments were in
the nondurable goods industries where shipments declined
$0.7 billion or 0.9 percent to $78.3 billion. An increase in
petroleum products shipments of $0.7 billion or 5.3 percent to
$14.5 billion was more than offset by declines in most of the


other nondurable goods industries. Excluding the petroleum
increase, nondurable goods shipments were down 2.1 percent.
Shipments of manufacturers' durable goods showed a small
decline in April of $0.1 billion or 0.2 percent to $79.1 billion.
A decline of $0.9 billion or 5.6 percent in shipments by non-
electrical machinery producers was offset by a $0.9 billion or
5.2 percent increase in transportation equipment industry. The
motor vehicle industry showed a $1.5 billion or 14 percent
increase over March, the third consecutive monthly increase fol-
lowing significant declines between July 81 and January 1982.
The value of the orders backlog of manufacturers decreased
$2.2 billion or 0.7 percent in April to $317.0 billion. This is
the sixth decline in the last 7 months and the largest since the
$5.1 billion drop in October. Within the specific categories the
orders backlog for fabricated metal products declined $1.1
billion or 3.9 percent; for nonelectrical machinery, $1.1 billion
or 1.6 percent; and for steel, $0.6 billion or 4.8 percent.
Declines in the book value of manufacturers' inventories
were widespread. Within the durable goods sector inventory
increases in the aircraft and parts industry of $0.7 billion or
2.7 percent, in nonelectrical machinery of $0.4 billion or 0.9
percent, and in instruments and related products of $0.2 billion
or 2.6 percent, offset declines in all of the other categories.
.Inventories in the nondurable goods sector declined $0.8
billion or 0.8 percent to $90.7 billion, with the largest decrease
coming in the petroleum products industry, down $0.5 billion
or 5.4 percent from March.
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 aslo 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 May is
scheduled for release on June 22, 1982, and full report is
scheduled for release on June 30, 1982.
