BUREAU OF THE CENSUS


C 31 r 3 11 ; I-I ~ "I tu acb JIP"d


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


New orders for manufactured goods in December increased
$7.3 billion or 4.8 percent to $157.6 billion the Department
of Commerce, Bureau of the Census reported today. This in-
crease was due to large orders in the defense capital goods
sector. Excluding that category, December new orders were
down slightly from November by 0.1 percent. New orders for
manufactured goods for all of 1982 totaled $1,863.4 billion,
6.4 percent below 1981. Excluding defense orders, new orders
for manufactured goods for the year tptaled $1,789.4 billion,
7.4 percent below 1981.
Shipments of manufactured goods in December declined
$0.9 billion or 0.6 percent from November to $151.4 billion.
This is the third consecutive monthly decline and the eighth
for the year. Manufacturers' shipments for all of 1982 totaled
$1,884.7 billion, down 5.5 percent from 1981. The value of
the orders backlog held by manufacturers increased in December
$6.2 billion or 2.1 percent to $297.3 billion. This is the first
monthly increase in the series since July 1981 when the backlog
was $328.9 billion. The December increase was due to the
increase in defense orders. Excluding the defense orders backlog,
unfilled orders in December declined 0.6 percent from Novem-
ber and 16.1 percent from December 1981.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories decreased in
December $2.6 billion or 1.0 percent to $266.7 billion. Except
for a 0.2 percent increase last February, inventories have been
declining since November 1981 when they were valued 7.2
percent higher at $285.8 billion. The inventory to shipments
ratio for December was 1.76, and for November 1.77. The
ratio for December 1981 was 1.77.
The surge in new orders in December, caused by an increase
in orders for defense capital goods, mostly affected the trans-
portation equipment industry. There orders increased $7.0
billion or 48 percent to $21.5 billion; in addition to the increase
in defense orders for aircraft, aircraft parts and shipbuilding,


the motor vehicle and parts industry also increased this month.
New orders for nonelectrical machinery were up in December
$1.1 billion or 8.8 percent to $14.1 billion, due to an increase in
the office and computing machine category. Orders for electrical
machinery were up $0.5 billion or 4.0 percent to $12.7 billion
due to an increase in the defense communication equipment
category. New orders in the primary metals industry declined
in December, as steel orders dropped $0.5 billion or 17.6 per-
cent to $2.5 billion, following a 9.3 percent increase last month.
Shipments within the major industry groups in December,
in both the durable and nondurable goods sectors, showed a
mixed pattern of change. Primary metals and transportation
equipment showed the largest increases while nonelectrical
machinery, food products, and petroleum products showed the
biggest declines. For the year, durable goods shipments were
estimated at $917.8 billion, down 8.3 percent from 1981, while
nondurable goods shipments were estimated at $966.9 billion;
down 2.7 percent from 1981.
The increase in the value of manufacturers' unfilled orders
in December of 2.1 percent was due mostly to the increase in
the orders backlog for defense capital goods of $7.4 billion or
8.7 percent to $92.0 billion. Unfilled orders for nondefense
capital goods declined $0.6 billion or 0.5 percent to $124.1
billion. The nondefense backlog has been declining generally
since its peak in January 1981 when the value was 27 percent
higher at $157.0 billion.
The decline in the book value of inventories in December
was widespread through the industries and affected all stages
of fabrication: raw materials were down 0.9 percent, work in
process was down 0.7 percent, and finished goods were down
1.3 percent.
The advance report on durable goods for January is scheduled
for release on February 23, 1983, and full report is scheduled
for release on March 3, 1983.


The estimates for December are generally subject to greater revisions than other months. Revisions are attributable to correc-
tions to early estimates by companies and to the lower than normal response rates, as reporting is delayed by year end closing of
records. For example, based on data from January 1977 through December 1981, the average monthly revision to durable goods
new orders was 1.1 percent; for January through November the rate was 1.0 percent, while the average December change was 1.7
percent.
