SEPTEMBER 1982

are in seasonally adjusted current dollars.)


New orders for manufactured goods in September increased
$1.1 billion or 0.7 percent to $155.5 billion; the Department
of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today. The in-
crease was attributable to the nondurable goods sector where
orders were up $1.2 billion or 1.5 percent to $82.6 billion. In
the nondurable goods sector new orders for the most part
reflect shipments during the month; September shipments
were up 1.2 percent from August. New orders in the durable
goods sector declined in September $0.1 billion or 0.1 percent
to $72.9 billion, this was revised from an earlier reported in-
crease of 0.2 percent.
Shipments by manufacturers in September showed a small
decrease of $0.1 billion to $158.6 billion, with offsetting move-
ments in the durable and nondurable goods categories. Ship-
ments of durable goods declined in September $1.1 billion or
1.4 percent to $76.2 billion, while shipments of nondurable
goods increased $1.0 billion or 1.2 percent to $82.4 billion.
Shipments of durable goods so far this year total $699.7 billion,
7.9 percent lower than the 1st 9 months of 1981; shipments
of nondurable goods total $728.0 billion for the 1st 9 months
of this year, 2.8 percent less than the same period in 1981.
The backlog of manufacturers orders' continued to decline.
In September the backlog decreased $3.1 billion or 1.0 percent
to $296.0 billion, the 14th consecutive monthly decline. The
book value of manufacturers' inventories was also down in
September, the 9th decline in the last 10 months. The Sep-
tember decline was $2.2 billion or 0.8 percent to $272.2 billion.
Within the major industry groups, the decline in durable
goods new orders in September reflected decreases in trans-
portation equipment and primary metals orders. The decline
in the transportation equipment category was $1.7 billion or
10.3 percent to $14.4 billion with the aircraft and parts and
motor vehicle and parts industries causing the decline. The
decrease in primary metals orders was $0.3 billion or 3.1 per-
cent to $7.9 billion, a large decline in the steel category of $0.4
billion or 9.6 percent was partially offset by a $0.2 billion or
4.1 percent increase in the nonferrous category. New orders
for machinery, both electrical and nonelectrical, increased
in September; the nonelectrical category was up 0.8 billion or
6.0 percent to $13.9 billion, while the electrical category was
up $0.5 billion or 4.4 percent to $12.1 billion.


Within the capital goods industries new orders for nonde-
fense capital goods increased $0.9 billion or 4.7 percent to
$19.8 billion. Virtually all of the increase was attributable to
the machinery industries. New orders for defense capital goods,
which is extremely volatile month to month, declined in
September $1.1 billion or 20.2 percent to $4.2 billion.
Shipments of durable goods in September were down 1.4
percent following a 2.3 percent decline in August. The trans-
portation equipment industry showed the largest decline in
September, down $1.4 billion or 8.2 percent to $16.2 billion,
with the motor vehicle and parts category accounting for almost
the entire decline. The shipments increase in the nondurable
goods sector of 1.2 percent resulted mostly from increases in
the food products and petroleum products industries of $0.9
billion or 3.8 percent and $0.5 billion or 3.1 percent respec-
tively. Both of these industries showed large declines last
month; food product shipments were down $1.0 billion or 4.3
percent in August, and petroleum product shipments were
down $0.7 billion or 4.0 percent.
The September decline in the orders backlog reflected wide-
spread decreases. Transportation equipment declined $1.7
billion or 1.5 percent, nonelectrical machinery $1.4 billion or
2.4 percent, fabricated metals $0.6 billion or 2.5 percent and
primary metals $0.3 billion or 1.3 percent.
The September decline in the book value of inventories of
0.8 percent was the largest since the 0.9 percent decline in May.
The nondurable goods industries, down 1.6 percent, accounted
for about 2/3 of the September decline, with most of the com-
ponent industries decreasing. The September decline in the
durable goods industries reflected decreases in most of the
industries except transportation equipment.
The inventory to shipments ratio in September stood at
1.72, down from 1.73 in August.
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 October
is scheduled for release on November 23, 1982, and full report
is scheduled for release on December 2, 1982.
